Our friend Allan who has been living in Florence for the past three years suggested to try Pizzeria Antica Porta, a place loved by locals with few tourists like us who you would think got lost. Located in the outskirts of Florence, on the road to Rome, outside of what used to be city walls, this place might be small in space but it is big in flavor.
We got lucky, had a table quickly and could not wait to try their pizza. We chose two: the Quattro formaggi and the margarita with mozzarella di buffala.
Pizzeria Antica Porta serves thin crust pizza that is nicely crispy, slightly charred and definitely not boring. I hate when you get a thin crust that is under seasoned: it was not the case there. And they put lots of ingredients on it, especially the mozzarella di buffala that is the best on pizza. The Quattro formaggi was also superb: I cannot say which cheese they use but it had for sure a nice balance with Gorgonzola going through.
So this was a nice find. If you are in Florence, I definitely recommend Pizzeria Antica Porta: it might be off the beaten path, but eating there is worth it.
Enjoy (I did)!
