Picsa: renewed Buenos Aires pizza

On a corner in Palermo, with tables on the sidewalk and a façade that dresses in the colors of the Albiceleste, Picsa offers a renewed version of the authentic Buenos Aires pizza. It is baked in a mold and wood-fired, with a high, spongy dough, with crispy edges and plenty of cheese. The particularity is in the raw materials and techniques used. The buns are made with selected flours, high hydration and many hours of natural cold fermentation, resulting in much tastier, lighter and easier to digest. The menu features 11 varieties, some more classic and others newer, offered whole, in halves or by the portion. The favorites are the Napo (San Marzano tomato sauce, special house cheese mix, roasted cherry tomatoes, “snatched” garlic and fresh basil leaves), the Ham and Morrón (San Marzano tomato sauce, cheese mix, cooked ham, parmigiano cheese and roasted bell peppers) and the Calabresa (San Marzano tomato sauce, mix of cheeses, artisanal nduja and pickled chilies). For the more adventurous, the Mexican is suggested (mozzarella, shredded roast, mature cheddar, stewed black beans, Mexican chili peppers and fresh cilantro).
