Macro Topped Phoneographic Phlatbread Pizza

Pizza with Macro Toppings | ©Tom Palladio ImagesWhat does an artist start with when he/she begins to create another masterpiece? A blank canvas, a palette of colors and a brush, right?

And what does one begin with when creating a homemade pizza pie? Rolled dough (the canvas), a cutting board of toppings (color palette), and a spatula or spoon (the brush).

Whether in the kitchen or the studio, every creation starts out from scratch, just an idea that slowly but surely takes shape and eventually is phramed or devoured on the spot.

This being the MACRO‘s turn in the weekly Phoneography Challenge, I’m relying on my strong suit, phood photography, to visually show, via an iPhone 5, the steps involved in creating one of my delicious, mouth-watering, homemade phlatbread pizzas.

You be the judge, but don’t you think it’s suitable for phraming?

Written by The Palladian Traveler

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. They’re all marvelously tempting. Love your title, and it’s terribly hard to select my favorite. Food (Phood) photography is truly a challenge, and you do it so–o-o-o-o well. Plus you are obviously a seasoned Italian cook. Being a vegetarian, pesto pizza is a regular. Also enjoy your various perspectives on the steps to the grand finale. YUMMY!!!!!!!!


  2. Your color palette is quite lovely, as is your phinished masterpiece. Definitely suitable for phraming by your lens, then on to phurther enjoyment with a glass of red. Bravissimo!
