When in Vietnam, eat pizza! Ok… I understand if Italian isn’t the first chow you search for in Saigon but if it is -like it was for us- please check out Pizza 4P’s. It shouldn’t be a surprise that we had most of our meals planned, and this restaurant came recommended by three friends. When I was told that they make their own artisanal cheeses in a farming village an hour away called Don Duong, I was sold. Burrata, anyone?!
If you allow me to pick a pizza, 9 out of 10 times I’ll order Quattro Formaggi. So I did. (The other 10% is usually a mushroom variety of the sort) Anyways, the 4 cheeses were mozzarella, house-made camembert, gorgonzola and parmesan. Taya got to choose the next pizza and she selected what would have been my 2nd option, Flower Pizza. Sounds so unusual, right?! Check out all the edible flower toppings: pumpkin flower, leek flower, telosma cordata, sesbania grandiflora, and the daylily flower. I had to Google some of those to make sure the menu wasn’t fooling us! Who knew. For our last pizza, the boys agreed on Burrata Prosciutto. I’m no dough-making expert, but I do know that their wood fired oven probably has something to do with the yummy crust. I will eat the entirety of my crust if and only if it meets all of the following: chewy, thin, soft yet still crispy and foldable. Needless to say, all plates were empty by the end of our meal. If that’s not enough to convince you to visit, come because the owner is so rad that he aims to bring peace to the world through… PIZZA! Platform of Personal Pizza for Peace, in case you were wondering about the 4P’s.
