The pizza at 4 euros, “a brick of dough with a puddle of tomato”: Flavio Briatore scandalizes the Neapolitans

Criticized precisely for the salty prices of his pizzas, Flavio Briatore attacked this week the famous Neapolitan pizza. Neapolitan pizza is the mother of all pizzas. Dough, mozzarella, tomato, a few basil leaves (sometimes anchovies or black olives). And that’s all. In the streets of Naples, it is sold for three or four euros in most cases.

A dish with low production costs, therefore, a pillar of popular cuisine anchored in the daily lives of Neapolitans. Since 2017, the art of making Neapolitan, artisanal, traditional pizzas by Neapolitan pizza makers has even been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Quite a symbol, therefore, that the billionaire Flavio Briatore has just compared to a “dough brick with a puddle of tomatoes”. IIt is impossible for the businessman to take €4 pizzas out of an oven that do not correspond to this unflattering description.
