ABOUT NEAPOLITAN PIZZA

Neapolitan_3

What exactly is Neapolitan pizza? “Neapolitan” refers to anything done in the fashion of Naples, a port city in southern Italy. Pizza is arguably that city’s greatest contribution to the world. And while pizza has been made there in some form for centuries, the tomato-topped pies we enjoy came into fashion in the late 1800s when a pizzaiolo (pizzamaker) honored Queen Margherita with a patriotic pizza featuring the colors of the Italian flag: red (tomato), white (mozzarella) and green (basil).

The tradition of Neapolitan pizza is preserved today by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, or Vera. This organization, headquartered in Naples, certifies that pizzerias all over the world uphold the traditions of Neapolitan pizza making.

Ingredients: The dough must be made with type 00 flour, the sauce from San Marzano tomatoes, and the cheese must be fresh buffalo- or cow-milk mozzarella. We use house-made cow-milk mozzarella.

Oven: The pizza is cooked in a wood-burning oven at about 800 degrees.

Technique: The dough is kneaded by a low-speed mixer. The crust is stretched by hand, and the pizzas are cooked in 90 seconds
