Neopolitan Pizza

N.B: Neapolitan pizza is vastly different than other styles of pizza; the individual pizzas are best suited to one person, and are meant to be eaten with a knife and fork, not sliced. While we are happy to slice your pizza, be forewarned-it’s not going to be easy to pick up and eat with your hands! The molten center of the pizza is considered a delicacy in Naples, and eating the pizza from the outside in is what we recommend. Try it the traditional way, and we think you’ll agree!
