One can believe in a bag of spices and yet. This is not so. This little clear bag is actually a pizza! If you can’t believe your eyes (and your taste buds), we can understand. This culinary creation is the work of Italian chef Valerio Braschi. It is at his restaurant Ristorante 1978 that the chef regularly offers disturbing gastronomic experiences. Lasagna in a tube of toothpaste or even a liquid carbonara shooter, Valerio Braschi is not afraid of anything.

This time, the chef tackled another monument of Italian gastronomy: pizza. At the risk of outraged Italians (who, by the way, ranked the worst “crimes” against Italian cuisine a few months ago), the idea of ​​recreating pizza in a far from conventional form intrigued us. So how could he concentrate all the flavors of a pizza into a plastic bag, itself edible?

The pizza bag, the pizza of the future?

To achieve this gastronomic experience, Valerio Braschi uses rice paper for his transparent bag. “I was thinking of heat sealing these edible rice papers. You have to be careful because they are much thinner and more delicate than the rice paper usually used to make spring rolls and should be stored in a dry place.“, says Valerio Braschi to lovers of fine cuisine. What about the taste of the pizza then?

Three ingredients are reduced to powder: the classic grilled edge of the pizza (…), so it gives the palate the typical burnt aroma of this cuisine; very good tomato cream with garlic, which we dry and stir; and fresh oregano that has been dehydrated before grinding“, he explains. All these flavors are reminiscent of the traditional alla marinara pizza recipe. All this in an absolutely atypical form that will probably surprise more than one. It looks less gourmet than the 834 cheese pizza, but it’s an experience to discover, isn’t it? ?

Since February, the chef has been offering his pizza in a fully edible bag to customers at his Ristorante 1978 as an appetizer. “You don’t need to order the tasting menu to enjoy it. This is a gift we want to offer all guests as a welcome, a way to get off to a good start and have fun“. We don’t know about you, but we’d love to try! Like any culinary trompe-l’oeil, we’re once again impressed by this pizza bag.
