Tradition & Passion

Did you know, Neapolitan Pizza is part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity?

As a proud part of the Verace Pizza Napoletana family of pizza-makers around the world, every element of our pizza-making is in strict adherence with this long-lasting and beloved cultural tradition.

True Neapolitan Pizza is guided by quality and technique, with guidelines for every step:

  • Dough must use only 4 ingredients, a traditional flour, and specialized fermentation process.

  • Pizzas must be Hand-Stretched with a puffy crust called a Cornicione.

  • Pizzas are baked at very high heat in Wood-burning volcanic stone ovens.

  • Traditional ingredients must be used, including San Marzano Tomatoes, Fior di Latte or Bufala Mozzarella, Fresh Basil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

What to try for the authentic experience:

Our guests know it as the Campania, but others may know it as a Margherita with Bufala Mozzarella – this simple, unfettered combination of naturally sweet San Marzano Tomatoes, salty and tangy Bufala Mozzarella, fresh basil leaves and aromatic Extra Virgin Olive Oil best brings to life the history of Neapolitan pizza. 

Want to dive into other traditional toppings?

Try our Hell’s Kitchen Pizza, featuring Hot Dry Cured Coppa and Spicy Calabrian Salami, two types of salumi with long-standing Italian tradition.

Dry Cured Coppa is made from well-marbled pork shoulder, rubbed with Hot Paprika and Sea Salt, and cured in a natural casing, similarly to a Prosciutto. Versions of this salumi have been made since antiquity.

Spicy Calabrian Salami combines the meaty, coarse ground texture of a Soppressata, the fiery Pepperoncino traditional to Calabria, and the flattened, oblong shape found in certain traditional salumi from southern Italy, sometimes referred to as Spianata Calabria.

It's hard to choose just one. Bring a friends and try your way through our 12 specialty pizzas, each showcasing Italian flavors and celebrating traditional products!
