Bonci Pizzarium

Trionfale
Pizza

Tucked away off the northwest corner of the Vatican—making it a perfect stop when visiting the Holy See—this order-at-the-counter pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice) joint has become a pie pilgrimage site. Gabriele Bonci, one of the city’s best bakers and pizzaioli, uses heirloom flour, natural yeast, and slow fermentation to make sure his dough is the most toothsome in town, topping his long, oblong pies with the freshest of largely local and seasonal ingredients.
