Pizza may have been invented by the Italians, but Laguna Niguel residents prefer their pie with a Greek twist.
When asked what the customer’s favorite pizza is at New York’s Upper Crust Pizza in Marina Hills, manager Alex Ceballos said without skipping a beat: “The Greek.”
Well, Italy isn’t THAT far from Greece.
The Greek features olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, parmesan cheese – so far, not too crazy – and feta cheese, red onions, oregano and artichoke hearts.
Just like mama used to make!
Selling most of their pizzas by the slice, Ceballos said he makes at least a dozen Greeks a day.
“That’s the one everybody orders.”
So Laguna Niguel, instead of mangia, mangia, we say: φάτε φάτε!
