A popular snack for all Islanders. You’ll come across them in most bars or from special pastizzi take-away places – usually hole-in-the-wall affairs with a small metal oven by the doorstep. Pastizzi are small, diamond-shaped packets of flaky pastry stuffed with either fresh ricotta or a mushy pea mixture. Sometimes they are slightly spicy and made from shortcrust pastry.
