The mysterious origin of the 4 Formaggi pizza

The 4 Formaggi Pizza, or Four Cheese Pizza, has a history that dates back to the very roots of pizza in Italy. Although there is no clear consensus on its origin, it is believed that the recipe comes from the Campania region, home of the renowned Neapolitan pizza.

Some say that this delight began to delight palates in small family pizzerias before gaining popularity nationally and internationally.

Legend has it that the 4 Formaggi Pizza was born out of the creativity of a pizzaiolo.

It is said that, when faced with the difficult choice of which cheese to use on his pizzas, he decided not to choose and combined four varieties, giving life to this delicious masterpiece.

The ideal pairing

Don’t forget to pair your 4 Formaggi Pizza with a good glass of Italian wine for a complete experience.

Italian white wines from Triveneto are renowned for their fresh, fruity, and aromatic qualities, making them an excellent match for light dishes like salads, pastas, and, notably, pizza.

Specifically, the 4 Formaggi pizza complements these wines exceptionally well. The blend of creamy, mild cheeses with sharp, salty varieties enhances the citrusy and acidic notes of the wines, creating a perfect pairing.
