Hello Friends !

I was wondering if anyone new of authentic Napoli (Naples) Style Pizza in Toronto or something close to it. I believe the authentic restaurant usually get certified by “The Verace Pizza Napoletana Association” (http://www.verapizzanapoletana.org/vp...)

Thanks very much !

Jen

  1. Bot sure about certified places, but the owner of the Danforth Pizza House is from Naples, and makes a darn fine pie. The plce is widely discussed on this board if you do a search.

    1. Not sure if it's authentic. Or even close.
      There was a place I used to order from sometimes years ago named Napoli Vince's.
      Good pizza. May have closed, I really don't know.

        Thanks, but none of them is even close.

        Just found that “il fornello” (http://ilfornello.com ) used to make Naples style pizza and it was certified, but it seems they changed the style…

        Actually, the Italian government is so sensitive about protecting its culinary heritage, even pizza is strictly regulated. Authentic Neapolitan-style pizza must use double-zero flour (that refers to how finely it's ground). The dough must be made only with salt, yeast, flour and water. It must use San Marzano plum tomatoes. It must be a certain variety of fresh buffalo mozzarella. The pie must be baked at a high temperature (more than 800 degrees F.) in a wood-burning oven.

        Anyway, I’m still looking for one.

          I suggest you try Trio! up on Yonge Street. It is relatively new, and have an amazing wood burning pizza over. If I remember correctly, they had a really good Napoli pizza.

            "The pie must be baked at a high temperature (more than 800 degrees F.) in a wood-burning oven."

            That is the basic problem with most chain outlets in T.O. - the over door is opened so often the temperature is not maintained and the end result is a doughy undercooked pie.
