We don’t know about you, but we find it hard to resist a really good Neapolitan Pizza. Authentic Neapolitan pizzas are typically made with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella cheese, fresh herbs, garlic and sea salt. And then it’s cooked in a wood-fired oven. After cooking, fresh basil can be added to the top of the pizza. Simply delicious!
There’s a ton of information online if you want to make the pizza yourself from scratch And if you’re seriously interested in learning how to make an “authentic” Neapolitan Pizza, you can always take a course at Tony Gemignani‘s International School of Pizza (he’s a 9-time World Pizza Champion).
