Pastizzi are pea or ricotta filled pastries which are the most popular and traditional snack food of Malta.

Pastizzi are popular amongst Maltese people and lend their name to “Pastizzerias” which primarily sell Pastizzi along with pizzas, sausage rolls, qassatat and timpana.

Pastizzi are particularly popular snacks on Sundays in Malta, with vendors all over the islands opening in the early hours to cater for late night clubbers and early morning hunters alike. Locals consider no visit to Malta to be complete without eating some Pastizzi.
