This year again, the best pizzeria in Europe is French, and even Parisian! And it’s still thanks to chef Giuseppe Cutraro. His restaurant Peppe was re-elected this Thursday, May 12 “Best pizzeria in Europe 2022” in the prestigious Italian ranking 50 Top Pizza which makes its list of the best pizzerias on the continent every year. Open since January 2020, Peppe Pizzeria is located on rue Saint-Blaise. It very quickly conquered pizza lovers, so much so that Giuseppe Cutraro opened a second address within the 5e district of the capital, Casa di Peppe (222, rue Saint-Jacques). This year, Giuseppe Cutraro was also crowned “Best Chef Pizzaiolo 2022” by the international jury of 50 Top Pizza. A prestigious title that confirms the talents of the former Executive Pizza Chef of the Big Mamma Group, who had already been elected “Pizza World Champion Chef 2019-2020” in Naples thanks to a recipe based on yellow cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, Parma ham, provolone, grilled almonds and fig jam.
Three other French pizzerias appear in the list of 50 Top Pizza. This is 400° Laboratorio (which takes the 17e place in the ranking), Guillaume Grasso (in 23e position), and IMPerfetto (in 40e position).
