Great news for pizza lovers in Stockholm: the authentic flavors of Argentine pizza and empanadas have arrived in the city! Salta Pizza, conveniently located at Lindhagensgatan 139A, near the picturesque Hornsbergs Strand, is bringing a slice of Buenos Aires to the heart of Stockholm. Argentine pizza, a staple of Buenos Aires’ rich culinary culture, is more than just a meal; it’s a representation of Argentina’s diverse gastronomic heritage.
Renowned for having the highest density of pizzerias in the world, Buenos Aires boasts a staggering annual consumption of around 14 million pizzas. This popularity underscores the special place pizza holds in the city’s heart. The origins of Argentine pizza trace back to the late 19th century with the wave of Italian immigration. These Italian influences have since evolved, giving rise to unique pizza styles like the pizza de molde, known for its thick, fluffy base and generous cheese topping, and the pizza a la piedra, notable for its thinner, crispier crust.
At Salta Pizza, you’ll find these classic Argentine styles alongside a variety of toppings, from the traditional mozzarella to the napolitana and calabresa. Each option offers a distinct taste of Argentina. A must-try is the combination of pizza with fainá, a chickpea flour pancake that has become a beloved tradition in Buenos Aires, reflecting the influence of Italian, particularly Genoese, immigrants. The menu also features local specialties like the fugazzeta, a double-layered pizza filled with cheese and onions, and the pizza de cancha, a unique cheese-less variant topped with a seasoned tomato sauce.
These pizzas not only tantalize the taste buds but also tell the story of Buenos Aires’ culinary creativity and adaptability. The arrival of Salta Pizza in Stockholm marks a new chapter in the city’s gastronomic landscape, offering a taste of Buenos Aires’ beloved pizza tradition. Whether you’re a long-time fan of Argentine cuisine or eager to try something new, Salta Pizza promises an authentic and delicious experience.
