Pizza in Rome {La Gatta Mangione}

Last week I wrote about old school pizza in my hometown and here in Rome.  This week it is all about a modern take on Italian pizza.  

La Gatta Mangiona is in the Monteverde neighborhood above Trastevere, and  has been on my list of places to try for so long it has turned into a on-going joke in our house.  When someone mentions they feel like pizza, we laugh about how we really should get in the car and head up the hill, but inevitably we end up across the street and our neighborhood place. 

Finally, a group of blogger and social media pals organized an evening.  All I had to do was show up.

We drank IPA brewed in Abruzzo with pink pepper and snacked on incredible fried suppli with saffron and asparagus. and crocchette with mint and garlic and pecorino. 

The pizza crust is chewy, Neapolitan style and the toppings choices are creative. We decided on one topped with edible flowers and one topped with crunchy guanciale and creamy ricotta.  We did try a classic margarita for comparisons sake.  

Save room for dessert. The American style portions of dark chocolate mousse and tiramisu are worth the space.
