Men, staring into an oven – or, more precisely, at a pizza. It’s a special moment, though: The first pizza produced by ‘Stranero’.
Alejandro Pérez from Venezuela and Miguel Perra from Italy have been working together for years as pizza bakers and barkeepers. “Within the last years, Wedding has become more and more interesting for us”, says Alejandro. They couldn’t find a pizza place which meets their expectations, though. “So we decided to do it ourselves!”, he says. At Liebenwalder Straße 11, in one of the nicest Kiezes with classical old buildings in wedding, they found an empty restaurant.
The difference? Whole grain wheat flour!
Traditional Italian pizza is the focus of ‘Stranero’. In addition to that, the pizza bakers also include their own ideas. To set themselves apart from other pizza places in Wedding, Alejandro and Miguel offer all pizzas in a second variety, using whole grain wheat flour. ‘Stranero’ almost sounds like ‘straniero’, foreigner. Hopefully, the pizza bakers won’t feel like foreigner in Wedding…
