Blogsy was a little “pitchy” yesterday. Hopefully tonight the photos will upload seemlessly.
When last I wrote we were on our way to St. John Lateran’s Archbasilica. But visiting Rome is hungry work so once we arrived we stopped to eat at the nearest pizzeria, which turned out to be “King SNCC Di Ahmed H. & C.”; so real authentic. But Mark Bittman recently said in the NYTimes tha tRome abounds with good pizza so we gave it a try.
And it was worth it by a mile. The pizza was sold by weight so we ordered six inches of ham and cheese and three inches of potato and cheese. With a 1.5L bottle of water we came in under €8.00.

Pizzeria Tonde da Asporto was the D/B/A.
This fine pizza received two Traggis. The potato pizza could have used a little more salt.
To cleanse our palate we stopped at the closest gelatoeria where I got a vanilla and chocolate swirl. Jenelle ordered a fragola (strawberry) gelato which she pronounced as “fradg-ee-OH-la” but she was immediately correctly by the Asian fellow behind the counter…”FRAG-o-la”
It was rather small but still a bargain at €3.20 for both.
Up next we headed across the street to the Archbasilica.
This is the back door.
