Lasagna is an Italian classic, and it’s universally adored. In Italy, the recipe for lasagna varies depending on the region. Each version is a little bit unique. Some recipes (like Genoa’s Lasagna alla Genovese) swap ragù for pesto, while others (Treviso’s Taleggio Lasagna, for instance) add Taleggio cheese, mushrooms and pancetta to the mix. Lasagna Napoletana, made with pieces of sausage, mozzarella and fried meatballs, takes center stage on the tables of Campania families during the Carnival season.
Overall, it’s fair to suggest the most ubiquitous lasagna recipe is Lasagna Bolognese. This medley of ragù bolognese and creamy béchamel layered between sheets of fresh pasta is both indulgent and completely delicious.
It’s not unheard of for Neapolitan pizza makers to create their own version of “pizza lasagna,” inspired by the elements of the dish. But one pizzaiolo took the idea a step further: Stefano Callegari, a renowned pizza chef, entrepreneur and restaurant owner with eateries dotted across Italy and around the world.
Callegari’s pizza lasagna sets itself apart because it reproduces the classic dish using seven (yes, seven) pizzas topped with meat sauce as building blocks, stacking them on top of each other. Inspired, we asked Ambassador Vincenzo Viscusi (with the help of his friend Antonio) to give the famed “pizza lasagna” a go in his Ooni pizza oven. The result? A delicious tower of decadence.
