Who can resist the call for a good pizza? None of us – which is great news for this fresh and exciting partnership between renowned L’Arte Pizza & Focaccia and Wine Connection Cheese Bar. Together, they’ve joined forces to bring the masses gourmet, handcrafted Romana pizzas crafted by Chef Radostin Kiryazov. Chef Rado, with over 30 years of experience perfecting the art of pizza making, has risen to become one of the world’s finest pizza masters, earning numerous prestigious accolades along the way.

Romana pizza is unlike any other pizza. It comes in a rectangular shape with a thicker and crunchier crust, quite distinct from its more familiar round and doughy Neapolitan cousin. Yet, it is precisely this crispy, airy foundation that provides such immense satisfaction.

For this collaboration, in addition to L’Arte Pizza & Focaccia’s regular menu, three mouth-watering offerings have been exclusively crafted for the Wine Connection Cheese Bar.

VERDICT: Sharing a pizza is typically a fun occasion or a matter of practicality sometimes. And frankly often times the pizza takes a supporting cast role either because it is our usual delight, or it is not that memorable amid a lively table filled with laughter and conversation. But rest assured, this pizza is bound to spark oohs and aahs.  Drop by the Wine Connection Cheese bar to experience it in person, and if you are feeling indulgent, consider pairing it with a nice glass of wine.
