Umbra student Amy Larson throws a pie in the oven at the legendary Pizzeria Brandi

It tells you something when you look up a pizzeria on Wikipedia and it doesn’t have its own page, but but appears under the rather larger subheading “History of pizza.” This is the case for Pizzeria Brandi, the neopolitan pizzamakers that are heralded as having created the classic pizza margherita: tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil.

Last week, we had a blog post about the Amalfi coast trip that Umbra organized, but we just got a copy of the picture of Amy Larson putting a pie in the oven. The only problem is that she’s suspiciously good at it; as anyone who’s gone to the Umbra pizza workshop [YouTube video] knows, pizza all’italiana is not the easiest thing in the world to make. Maybe she’s been practicing? Either way: Amy, that is awesome.
