Sometimes a piece of heaven can be as simple as a fabulous pizza caprese by the side of a pool. No one goes to such lengths making pizza as Executive Chef Nick Mastrascusa, who oversees the BeachTree restaurant at Four Seasons’s Resort Hualalai. Of course, it’s hard to beat the perfect combination of mouth watering pizza and the fabulous ocean view on the Big Island of Kona, Hawaii. This might just be the best pizza in the world. Well, that’s my opinion!
Chef Nick flies in “OO” flour all the way from Italy. The flour is ground from winter wheat grown in northern Italy, and is the secret to the light and airy dough. The pizza comes out of the the brick oven with air pockets bursting with flavor. It’s topped off with sliced “WOW” island tomatoes picked from a nearby farm each morning, sliced fresh basil from the hotel’s herb garden and long slices of Parmesano Reggiano. Now, that’s a first class pizza!
