Fugazzeta is a highly appetizing pizza made with soft dough and topped with onion stuffing, cheese, and herbs.

Fugazzeta is a type of Argentine pizza, which originated in Buenos Aires. It is believed that it was first made in the 19th century by Italian immigrants. Initially, it was just a simple pizza with cheese and onions, but with the passage of time, some variations were added in its making process.

The Fugazzeta’s dough is made from high-quality flour, yeast, water, sugar, and salt. The dough is kept aside for 24 hours, which helps the gluten develop and makes it soft and fluffy. It is then shaped into a rectangular base, and at this point, the onion stuffing is added. The stuffing comprises fried onions, oregano, and oil. And on top of the stuffing, generous amounts of cheese is added. You can choose mozzarella or provolone based on personal preference.

After the assembly of all ingredients on top of the base, it is baked in the oven for some time, until the cheese is bubbling and the crust turns golden brown. Once it’s out of the oven, it’s cut into a rectangular shape and it’s enjoyably consumed.

Now that we got you through the dough and stuffing, let’s talk about the different variations of Fugazzeta. One of the most popular versions of Fugazzeta is Fugazza con queso. This type of pizza is without stuffing; only cheese and onions are used. Another popular version of Fugazzeta is Fugazzeta rellena. This breakfast pizza recipe is stuffed with Provolone cheese, ham, and olives.

Now that we’ve gone through the making and variations of Fugazzeta, let’s talk about where best to try it in Argentina. One of the most famous places in Buenos Aires is El Cuartito, which has been serving Fugazzeta since the 1930s. It’s a small pizzeria located in the centre of the city, with a traditional touch and excellent service. Another local favorite is La Mezzetta, which, besides serving Fugazzeta, also serves ‘Fugazzata’ – which is a calzone stuffed with Fugazzeta.

In short
