While there, we ate lots of tasty pupusas, the country’s national dish. We were tipped off about a pizza version, the PuPizza which we all enjoyed!
On the way up to San Salvador Volcano (aka El Boqueron), we passed what looked to be a very interesting pizza shop called Squisito. After visiting the volcano, we decided to stop by for lunch.We were really impressed with their open kitchen setup. One of the pizzaiolos was busy balling dough as another manned their pizza ovens.We went upstairs and were again impressed by the nice sit down dining area!Once the pizza arrived, we couldn’t wait to dig in. The Margherita pie looked good. The sauce was very tasty and I would’ve liked for them to have gone a little lighter on the cheese. The only thing I could’ve lived without were the slices of tomato which I removed.The undercarriage was solid and the pie was nice and crispy.Their hot oil added subtle heat and nice flavor. It made me think of some tasty pies in Connecticut…Next up was the pepperoni pie. While the pepperoni was on the mild side with little flavor, it didn’t really bother us. The fresh flavorful sauce added tons of flavor and the cheese was just right.
I didn’t expect to find good pizza in El Salvador so I didn’t bother looking into it prior to our trip. I’m not sure if we found Squisito or the pizza found us this time. Regardless, we all enjoyed this pizza surprise during our trip!
Squisito is located at Km 16 Calle al Boquerón in Santa Tecla, El Salvador.
