Charlotte’s Top Dining Destinations: Pizzeria Omaggio
"Since day one, the Regina Margherita Pizza has been the most popular pizza to be ordered at Pizzeria Omaggio, as well as the dish for which they are best known. Where many places fall short on the basics of this pizza, Pizzeria Omaggio shines. With a light, airy thin dough, this pizza is topped with a base of high quality tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella, baked until golden brown, and finally topped with fresh basil leaves and extra virgin olive oil as garnish; the pizza comes in a personal size, about 10-11 inches. Due to it being such a classic dish in Italy, Pizzeria Omaggio says its establishment would never dare modify the recipe; they feel it would be disrespectful to the craft and the history of the pizza."
