It twists and softens under Nabil's expert hands. It stretches and contorts to become as light as air. At La Cerise sur la Pizza, pizza pastry takes the cake.
What is it ? A tiny pizzeria run by native Marseillais, tucked away between two brick walls and topped with a station clock. Our advice: settle down in full view of the pizzaiolo, winner of France's Acrobatic Pizza Championship, and watch him toss, spin and stretch his dough in true Napolitain style. Friday nights you'll even find him outside on the pavement, weaving his magic. Stir up your appetite with the aroma of rocket and mozzarella... better still, tuck in your napkin and savour one of his heavenly oven-baked pizzas, cooked to perfection. If Marseille is like this every night, maybe it's time to pack your suitcase ?
