Quattro Formaggi, ANY four cheeses?

jumpingmonk | Aug 22, 2008 01:51 PM

I was just wondering if anyone else is a bit ticked off by resturaunts (particualry pizza parlors) who offer pizza described as Quattro formaggi which consist of mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan and a foruth cheese that is NOT gorgonzola. Yes I know its ligusically correct to call such a pizza four cheese but to me quattro Formaggi isn't quatro formaggia if it has no gorgonzola. Plus most of those forth cheeses are insipid choices like romano (okay I guess) provolone (so-so) or shapr cheddar (ick) I even once live near a greek/italain resutruant that used feta (ugh?) so what does anyone else think on the subject?
