IMG_1056-0.JPGI’ve come to realize that I have little to no self control when it comes to Italian pizzas, and my waistline proves it. For the past eight weeks Spencer and I have enjoyed incredible cuisine in restaurants across Tuscany and southern Italy.  While driving through Ponte a Serraglio, in the Bagni di Lucca area, we noticed a small white building advertising “pizza by the slice”.  Spencer and I made the short walk a few days later from our hotel and were welcomed inside by Albano Fini.

His small restaurant, Bar Forno Artigianale, features fresh breads, pizzas, biscotti and serves beer and wine. Spencer and I planned to order just a slice each, but when Albano offered to cook up a fresh pizza for us, my will-power went out the window.

Spencer asked for a pizza with salumi piccante (America’s version of pepperoni).

Albano offered us a plate of cookies while he prepared our lunch then a few minutes later brought out a pipping hot pizza to our table.

The crust had just the perfect crunch and softness for my non-culinary trained taste buds.

Spencer gave his two thumbs up stamp of approval as well. We brought home our three remaining slices and promised Albano we would be back soon.

If you are in the Bagni di Lucca area, don’t pass up a slice of Albano Fini’s pizza.
