In just a few decades, Italy has become an increasingly interesting player on the world beer scene. Home to 1,000 craft breweries and brewpubs, the country has an incredible and ever-expanding selection of craft beers. Some are made with ancient grains such as spelled or based on medieval beer recipes. Some craft beers are aged in oak barrels like wine, one even in amphorae.

Number 8 – Ice Cream
Number 8 is Ice Cream. Another childhood favorite of mine. I have fond memories of going to the Thrifty store with my family and getting a scoop of Thrifty brand ice cream. My favorite flavor back then was Chocolate Malted Crunch.
The average American consumes a whopping 23 pounds of ice cream and other related frozen desserts in a year. The most popular flavors are vanilla first, then chocolate. I love an ice cream!
Number one on our list of Italy’s best traditional dishes is pizza. Everyone knows what pizza is, it needs no introduction, but what you probably know as pizza isn’t quite the same as in Italy. Pizza has been around for centuries on the Italian peninsula, but in 1889, when Queen Margherita of Savoy visited the city of Naples, the famous Pizza Margherita was born. The story goes that the Queen was fed up with French cuisine and summoned Raffaele Esposito, a well-known pizza maker, to create an original pizza for her. Queen Margherita approved the tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil pizza. Immediately afterwards, Raffaele Esposito named his pizza Margherita and asked the Queen for her royal assent.
In Italy, pizza is fresh, simple and a decent size, allowing each ingredient to stand out on its own. There are two types of Italian pizza: the Neapolitan pizza “Pizza Napoletana”, which is thicker and smaller, also called Naples-style pizza, and the Roman pizza “Pizza Romana”, which originated in Rome and is thinner, crispier and larger .
