Jaclyn DeGiorgio speaks with pizza and bread extraordinaires Simone Lombardi and Giovanni Mineo of Crosta, one of Milan's best pizzerias and bakeries. Here's part 1 of their conversation. They discuss whether or not there's a Milanese pizza, the history of pizza, Crosta itself, and more. Spoiler alert: In part two (coming next week), we dispel two myths about Italy.
Crosta opened in 2018 and in 2020, they opened Crosta Lab where they sell Pizza al Portafoglio (wallet pizza), a street food, from a window that opens onto the street.
