Our Story

Everybody loves pizza, there is no doubt about it. But not many people know what real pizza is. Pizza was invented in Naples in the 19th century and the first pizzas consisted of tomato sauce, garlic and some oregano-very simple. Unfortunately, people view pizza as something unhealthy and greasy. It is not, the true pizza is the Neapolitan Pizza made from flour, water, yeast and salt. Add some fresh tomato sauce and some fresh mozzarella and here you have it. Simple, healthier and delicious.

The dough needs to rest at least 48 hours!

Napizza seeks to promote a healthier pizza and tries to bring back the Neapolitan traditional Pizza Making by using a wood fired oven, a traditional dough recipe and a Master Pizzaiulo (Pizza Chef).

Our Dough is made from water, flour, yeast and salt. We mix the flour with the yeast which transforms the the sugar of the flour into ethyl alcohol and carbonic gas. The Dough needs at least 48 hours to rise in order to be light and easy to digest.

Our Oven, is a wood fired oven and it cooks the pizza at over 450 *C in less than 60 seconds.

Our Pizzaiulo has over 20 years of experience of pizza making. Mixing passion and professional secrets to make the best pizza each day.
