Snackshot Of The Day: Handmade Mozzarella At Pizzeria Bianco In Phoenix

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking. Today's Snackshot is a photo of an insalata Caprese from the famed Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix.

You've heard about the pizza at Bianco for good reason, but one of the great things about the pizza, and the restaurant in general, is its adherence to the proper presentation of good ingredients. A good example is the pictured creamy handmade mozzarella served with local tomato, basil, and extra-virgin olive oil. Caprese insalata has to be one of the most prevalent options on Italian restaurants around the world. Still, it's so easy to do wrong. Not so at Bianco. Simple ingredients speak for themselves. If you don't get the idea as conveyed by this photo (taken April 8, 2011), you should make the trip yourself.
