Man does not live by bread alone.  There's also tomato, cheese and pepperoni.

Pizza Brewer, I am SO glad you posted that link.

The picture of the place selling the street pizza (that the writer liked even better than Da Michele and Trianon) was a place that I stumbled upon while I was lost wandering around Naples.  I took a bunch of pics of this place, and a few other pizzerias in the same area, but unfortunately they were all deleted by my wifes cousin :'(

I thought the mini pizzas there were absolutely amazing, and now I have a visual (and a name I think??) to remember for next time.  That place also had amazing fried calzone.

Marco, is that the name of the place written on the front of the cart? 

If I remember correctly that pizzeria tasted similar to Costa, like they might have been using that other (non Caputo) flour, and possibly a starter culture.

Scott,

That is the name of the pizzeria in front of the cart, however the majority of pizzerie, starting with Port'Alba, have similar cart to sell pizza in the morning to Students and Market worker and shoppers.

I would like to add that the mentioned article is full of errors on hystoric dates, locations and quotes. Probably the guy is not a professional journalist, but is that type of misinformation that contribuite to the confusion about Pizza Napoletana... (e.g. The Queen Margherita visited Naples in 1889....)

Actually he is (or was) one of the main food writers for the New York Times.

I purchased a full-sized pizza from one of these carts and was then trying to figure out how to eat it, eventually taking little nibbles around the edge until I saw a local fold it in half and eat it while walking down the street. Worked for me! So good!

During my visit to Naples, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Everyone I talked to was so passionate about food, especially pizza. If I lead a good life, perhaps I'll be a Neapolitan in the next.  :angel:
