My girlfriend and I went to Vieja Lira a few weeks ago while in Oaxaca, and I'm still talking about the pizza. It was the thinnest crust I have ever seen, and it was absolutely delicious!!! If you need a break from traditional Mexican food for one night in Oaxaca, this is the place to go. Great atmosphere, wonderful selection of wines, delicious homemade hot sauce (for the bread and the pizza!) and the best pizza I have ever had. Living in Toronto, we have quite an ample array of Italian restaurants to choose from, but Vieja Lira takes the cake (or pie, in this case). I will definitely be returning for more pizza on our next trip to Oaxaca. In the meantime, I've asked my girlfriend to look up thin-crust pizza recipes to try our luck at it at home. I wish her good luck...that's a hard pizza to beat! And the toppings were incredibly fresh and delicious. We got ours with arugula and prosciutto, a great topping combination if you ask me: my girlfriend got her veggies, and I got my meat! A must for Italian food lovers in Oaxaca!!!!
