When it comes to pizza and pizzerias, most people naturally first think of Italy. Just across the Adriatic sea, however, Croatia has a lot to boast about when it comes to this dish, and it’s being more and more recognised on an international scale.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Zagreb pizzeria Franko’s Pizza and Bar has become the very first Croatian pizzeria to be ranked on the list of Europe’s top fifty pizzerias, writes the Plava Kamenica portal, often read by Croatia’s many food lovers.

These lists are compiled regionally, and this Zagreb pizzeria is in 47th place in the European selection. Belgrade’s Majstor and Margarita, which is in 43rd place, and Ljubljana’s Verace in 35th place are also on the list from Croatia’s neighbouring countries.

The list of the best European pizzerias this year includes 28 countries, and last year it was won by Kalò di Ciro Salvo Pizzeria from the British capital of London, while this year, first place went to Peppe Pizzeria from Paris.

The list is, quite expectedly, dominated by French and Spanish pizzerias, but this recognition for Croatian pizzas is a fantastic bit of publicity and promotion for the country which has become very well known for its rich and extremely varied gastronomic offer over the years, especially since the late Anthony Bordain visited.

On top of that, the fact that it is a Zagreb pizzeria and not one based down on the Adriatic coast is excellent recognition for continental or ”green” Croatia, as tourism away from the coast gradually attracts more and more curious foreign visitors.
