Domenico Crolla and his “Portrait Art Pizza”
Domenico Crolla “Portrait Art Pizza”
Domenico Crolla is an Italian pizzaiolo born in Glasgow, United Kingdom with a big passion for art and food. When he decided to combine the two, he created “The Portrait Art Pizza”.
On February 2013, I received a lovely surprise on Facebook – Domenico Crolla had created a “Portrait Art Pizza” of me! So here I am, among many great celebrities such as Sophia Loren, former president Barack Obama, Frank Sinatra, the legendary Marylyn Monroe, and even Pope Francis, to name just few.
I asked Domenico what inspired him and he said: “I was inspired by the sculptures made with fruits and vegetables so I challenged myself to create something unique with pizza”.
All of Domenico’s pizzas are edible and if you are in Glasgow make sure to visit his Pizzeria ORO and say hello for me.
Here a funny coincidence, Domenico wanted to create a Pizza with the iconic FIAT 500, so he use a portrait of a red 500 and only few weeks later he realize that the woman on the window was me. Double the honor for me.
