The expert pizza masters worked the dough, rolled it out and seasoned it according to the best Italian tradition, with Campania tomatoes, fiordilatte mozzarella and a basil leaf, then cooking them.
Kadriye and the other children finally had their dream come true, enjoying pizza for the first time! A small but great symbol of cultural integration and peace in a land unfortunately marked by conflict.
We at Eataly are proud to have contributed to fulfilling the dream of the children of Urfa and to have brought pizza to the Fertile Crescent, where agriculture was born, for the first time. But we didn't stop there!
The chefs of Eataly Istanbul offered free baking, bread and pizza lessons at Harran University in Urfa, again in collaboration with Dreamstalk.
The goal? To help small villages become stronger and more economically independent, following the principles of sustainability and, why not, a passion for cooking and good food.
