Pan pizza

As pizzas goes I am a regular pizza guy. Pan pizzas for whatever reason are really not my preferred way of eating this type of food. Maybe its the fact that some pizzerias tend to make these portions way too small?

Needless to say this means when ordering / making pizzas I tend to gravitate towards the thinner crusted pizzas and sometimes it feels a little dull.

A good tasting pan pizza really is great when done properly. With enough fillings that is, and the crust just properly cooked, not overdone.

Yummy!

Classic Pizza

Ah, Pizza! That Classic of weekend foods.

In Itis, therehas been a pizzeria called Classic Pizza for ages. The restaurant was able to get a place in the basement of the department store of Stockmann, close to the food store of Herkku. The location is good for a quick stop for proper pizza in between shopping. Rather suprisingly the din of the store does not become bothersome.

The service was pleasant albeit a bit slow due to the fact that the place was full to the last seat.

The menu consists of all the usual pizzas with a couple of specialties. The pizzas are made properly where you can see them made and not somewhere in the back. There is a selection of wines and beers as well as coffee and desserts.

Pricewise the pizzas start from 9€ and top 15€ so definately not the cheapest place.

From the menu I chose a house specialty called Tuffo with Rocket salad, mozzarella, porcino, champignon and red olives. The pizza ingredients were chosen by Finnish TV-chef Jyrki Sukula.

The pizza was large enough but not too big. After the first bite I was very happy with choosing this pizza as the taste was great. This pizza is totally vegetarian so good for those so inclined. And tasteful even for a meat lover..

Italialaista a la Kruununhaka

Pompeii on pieni Italialainen Kruununhaassa Snellmaninkadun varressa. Paikka on profiloitunut pizzeriaksi ja on etenkin valtsikkalaisten suosiossa sijaintinsa vuoksi. Pompeiissä saa kuitenkin myös anti pastoja, pastoja sekä liharuokia.

Sisälle ei mahdu kovin paljon ihmisiä, joten puhelinvaraukset pöytiin ovat suositeltavia, etenkin jos on liikkeellä isommalla porukalla. Tunnelma on tiivis ja palvelu leppoisan mukavaa.

Pizzalistalla on useita vaihtoehtoja hintahaitarin ollessa hiemn korkea pizzaksi (11-14,50€). Pizzat ovat kuitenkin kohtuullisen isoja, ei mitään mammutteja tokikaan. Listalta valikoitui itselle Capriciosa perinteisine täytteineen (herkkusieniä, kinkkua, artisokkaa oliiveja).

Pohja oli hieman tuhdimpaa ja pehmeämpää kuin esimerkiksi perus pizza-kebab paikoissa tarjolla oleva ja ainakin omaan makuun tämä toimii paljon paremmin. Maku oli hyvä ja annoskoko vei nälän. Käymisen arvoinen paikka, mikäli seikkailee Kruununhaan tuntumassa ja iskee nälkä!

Herkullinen Capriciosa -pizza

Pompeii is a nice and intimately small Italian restaurant which is specialized in pizzas. The restaurant is located in Kruununhaka, Helsinki. Naturally the menu also has other options such as anti pasto, pasta and meat foods. The Capricciosa (mushrooms, artichokes, ham and olives) was very good and the pizza was large enough to satisfy yet not too huge.
