MrWildy's Personal Introduction to Mamma Pizza
Okay, I have to confess that I chanced upon Mamma Pizza while arriving into Oslo jetlagged and wanting to find a decent eating place near the waterfront. Mamma Pizza ticked those boxes as it was highly ranked on TripAdvisor (#23). There was outdoor seating and it was a lovely evening with the sun about to set. And I love pizzas of course.
History of Mamma Pizza
Mamma Pizza was opened because Luca and Davide Zannini wanted to bring the authentic taste of Italy to pizza loving Norway. Born and raised in Bologna, they spent their childhood in their grandmother’s kitchen; the “Mamma” who inspired it all. Hiding under her table, stealing pieces of mortadella to snack on, they learned the true Italian secrets of cooking.
What I ordered
We started with some drinks, and I ordered a Negroni while M ordered an Aperol Spritz. This was my first order of Negroni in Norway, and this was the better Negroni as compared to the one I had at Mathallen. For the pizzas, we decided to order a Formaggi Pizza and a pasta to share. The waitress was nice enough to recommended adding some tomato sauce since the pizza came rather dry.
Both the pizza and the paste were delicious, and we literally cleaned the plates up. There was also a nice casual atmosphere with Mamma Pizza, and I think it would be one of those places I would return to visit if I visit Oslo again.
