Here at the Time Out Paris offices, we’ve porked out on the city’s best jambon-beurre, then surrendered to a croissant coma. Now we throw ourselves headlong into a new taste test – that holy trinity of tomato, basil, mozzarella – the margherita pizza.
It’s not most people’s go-to order (let’s admit we’re all too greedy for such minimalism) but it remains a reliable benchmark for judging a good pizza joint. And with more hipster pizzerias in Paris than you can shake a rolling pin at, it seems the need to cut the wheat from the chaff has never been greater.
Marked out of twenty on dough, toppings, appearance and general taste, you'll never need to a bad pizza again. And of course, all margheritas were munched straight out of the oven – because no self-respecting fan eats one cold.
