My limited understanding of Italian grammar is that, unlike Spanish or
English, the genitive pronoun can occur between the article and the noun,
whence the famous aria in Don Giovanni, "Il mio tesoro". Hence, we would
have "a mia pizza" for regional varieties in which "la" > "a", so the
article would not be contiguous to the noun.
