Quattro Staggioni (four seasons in English) is something that you would not find at your regular pizza place. This pizza sounds too much more like a sampler if you ask me but I remember enjoying it some years ago in a long lost restaurant in a different country. This is all that I usually need to start digging information about a specific recipe, so here it is. It is divided in four sectors with different ingredients, one for each season. Probably Italians thought of this one too but for some reason I cannot find any lore about it, maybe is a closed guarded secret or they don’t really care too much about it. However, there are some basic rules regarding what ingredients go with what season, for example: spring belongs to cooked ham (prosciutto cotto) and black olives, summer goes with artichokes and anchovies, autumn with tomatoes mixed with mozzarella and finally winter, simply mushrooms. Personally I got lost when reading about artichokes because I don’t really like them but then I thought, “dude, you’re a foodie, grow a pair” so I went on with it, with some changes of my own of course.
