In Italy, the food is very good, and there are many kinds food. The most common food in Italy is pizza. Usually, you eat pizza in the evening because at lunch, the chef does not cook it.
There are many types of pizza: margherita, capricciosa, marinara, napoletana, quattro formaggi, and in every pizza, there are different toppings or ingredients. For example, in the pizza margherita, there are only mozzarella chesee, tomato, and basil, and unlike the Philipine pizza , the Italian’s pizza is only salty, and in fact, the first ingredient for pizza is tomato, but there are other toppings such as fish, salad, ham, potato, sausage, and more, but the principal ingredient is tomato because when it does not has tomato, the pizza is not good. But this is only in a regular resturant. In a pizzeria, a shop only for pizzas, there are many types of pizza with some ingredients. My favorite pizza are margherita, diavola, and quattro formaggi (four cheese).
One other common food in Italy is pasta. Pasta is a favorite Italian food, and all Italian people eat pasta. In fact, many people in Italy are fat because the people’s first job is eating. There are many types of pasta and many ingredients as well. But unlike pizza, pasta can have all kinds of ingredients that goes well with it such as mussels ,tomato, and pesto. My favorite pastas are carbonara, amatriciana with mussels.
Pasta can be mixed in soup, can be prepared with meat, can be cooked with vegetables, and this food is very popular all over the world. For example, I see so many restaurants here in the Philippines that serves pasta. But the real Italian pasta is carbonara and amatriciana. These have meat but carbonara has meat but no tomato, and amatriciana has meat with tomato. Pasta can have different types: penne, bucatini, farfalle, and in the market, the common factory of pasta is Barilla.
In every lunch or dinner in a restaurant, there is dessert. The Italian people like salty food and sweet food, such as tiramisu and creme caramel. These are the popular food in my country.
