PIZZA STYLES

NEAPOLITAN PIZZA

Authentic Neapolitan pizza is governed by a strict set of rules laid out by the Association of True Neapolitan Pizza (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana). A focus on traditional Neapolitan ingredients and a skilled pizzaiolo are a must for the baking of true Neapolitan pizza.
