These dishes are most often ordered at lunchtime by students, office workers and representatives of other professions. What is common between pizza and Ossetian pies? The advantages and disadvantages of each of these dishes?
Pizza - is it an ineptly made Ossetian pie?
The legend says…
Once, after the ancient Greeks, the legions of the Roman Empire reached the coast of the Caucasus. The warriors and their bosses were delighted with traditional Ossetian pies. According to them - it was the perfect food for long grueling campaigns. Hearty pastries have not spoiled for a long time and retained their high nutritional qualities. In addition, the advantage of Ossetian pies was a large number of variations of the filling. What did the dinner of the Romans not only hearty, but also varied and tasty.
Cooks of the Roman army brought the secret of Ossetian pies to their homeland, in Italy. But, whether the Italians did not have enough skills, or the ingredients of the Mediterranean have no such characteristics as Caucasian water, flour, herbs and spices. But, having failed to create pies similar to Ossetians - with a thin layer of text above and below, Italian chefs created a pizza, where the thinly rolled dough serves something like a pillow for the filling.
However, the contents of the filling has also changed. Its basis was what was left unfinished in the evening - the remnants of sausage or seafood, cheese, vegetables, and sometimes fruit. And it is not surprising - after all, at that time the Romans were little known, and therefore unique Caucasian spices were practically inaccessible - imeretinsky saffron, utsho-suneli and fresh coriander. And without them, as well as without real homemade cheese, real Ossetian pies cannot be cooked!
