Tonight a friend invited me out to have a pizza in celebration of a certain recent event in Italy.

My local pizzeria is an unpretentious little place, staffed by the owner, a cook who looks too tiny to be able to manage the enormous pizza oven and a waitress / cashier.  This evening, although the heating was on, the owner was standing around in his warm, flat cap, gazing up at the television in the corner - there is always a television in the corner - when he was not directing customers to, or clearing, tables.  But by golly, the pizza is good, with crusts to die for:

Pizza alla campagnola with tomato, aubergine, artichokes and peas for me

Pizza alla diavola for my companion

Prettily presented salame inglese for us both as dessert

That's a new one to me. I know what Zuppa Inglese is, but what is this?
