What is traveling without food? In every travel, there’s sightseeing, meeting new people, and let’s not forget about the endless amounts of social media posts. However, the best part of all is the food. Without it, there is no authentic travel experience. Food doesn’t just have to satisfy hunger, it can also serve as a whole new enjoyable experience that you wouldn’t have otherwise had. Food has the ability to shape your journey and define your memories.

Devouring a slice is a process that involves all the senses: the aroma coming from the oven, the sight of the molten cheese, the feel of the cornmeal crust in your hands, the sound of the crunch as you bite into it, and of course, the taste — that unparalleled combination of dough, sauce, herbs, and cheese.
