Some say Italy looks like a boot but to me all I can see is pizza.

 

Okay, so there may be a few more things that remind me of Italy such as pasta, gelato, gondolas and leaning towers but for now pizza is the only thing on my mind and in my stomach.

 

It all began in 2012, just off the Grand Canal in Venice.

 

 

This photo was not taken in 2012 but it is a perfectly dramatic addition to the post.

As I walked down the street past the souvenir stalls and gelato bars the scent of pizza wafted up my nose and lead me to Quanto Basta.

 

Or in other words….

 

The home of the best pizza in the world!.

 

Of course I couldn”t pass up the French fries and bacon pizza.

 

Yes, you read that correctly, French fries and bacon…. ON A PIZZA!

 

Still in disbelief that this masterpiece is real.

Whether you are in Venice or curled up at home I 100% recommend this combination of food.

 

How could you say no!?

How could you say no!?

 

To be honest, anything involving bacon is never disappointing… especially donuts.

 

Almost 4 years later and I finally returned to Venice in search of the best pizza in the world once again.

 

Think about a child’s excitement the moment they walk into Disneyland… This is how I reacted to finding Quanto Basta after being lost in maze that is Venice for most of the day.

 

I wasn't exaggerating!

I wasn’t exaggerating!

 

Not all dreams come true though as they had run completely out of French fries! How dare they!

 

Now, think about a child’s disappointment as they are leaving Disneyland….. this is how I felt about this no French fry ordeal.

 

This didn’t stop my search though! I may not have been reunited with the best pizza in the world but I did stumble across a close second which was pretty much the same pizza but without the french fries.

 

What it lacked in french fires it made up for in size and deliciousness.

I bet you think Quanto Basta couldn’t get much better than owning the top two pizzas in the world but you would be mistaken as it is also the owner of some of the best gelato I have ever had the pleasure of eating too. not to mention some pretty impressive looking crepes which I will be coming back for because after the pizza and gelato I was in a pretty intense food coma.

 

Melting in my hands while it melts my heart and soul.

Quanto Basta has it all (including my heart) and if you ever get the chance to go I promise you that is won’t be your only visit because just like me you will never get enough!
