Machu Pizza

You can get pizza in just about every restaurant in Peru, it seems (spaghetti, too). Well, at least in the tourist towns. I´m not for this kind of least-common-denominator cuisine, but I have to say when your stomach isn´t right, it´s great to have a simple option to keep yourself fueled.

Winner for best pizza and best restaurant name on the trip goes to Machu Pizza in Puno, a place around the corner from the hotel crammed with locals. Their pizza comes with a hot salsa for dipping, as well as a "creamy garlic" dip—basically a garlic ranch dressing. Not bad!

(Machu Pizza is at Jr. Tacna No. 279 at about Jr. Melgar, only about 5 blocks from the Plaza des Armas in Puno...and only about three blocks from the Hotel Hacienda, a proper hotel where we stayed for about $40/nite for a triple, including breakfast.)
