The classic ingredient of Sicilian pastry? Almond, of course! Pizzuta is the highest quality almond in the world & the most delicate. Blooming in the heart of winter, thriving only at the bottom of hills that are close to the sea.
It is the Italy's most prestigious almond and it is grown in South eastern Sicily.
Pizzuta refers to the physical shape of the almond, which is pointy and very flat. It is exceptionally fruity, almost cherry-like, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Almond extract tries to recreate the Pizzuta's sweetness, but nothing can compare to the almond itself.
