eyes opened by Naples
« on: January 30, 2014, 02:37:31 AM »
Greetings forum,

I've made what I considered to be Neapolitan pizzas that I was satisfied with at time, but had my eyes opened by a visit to Naples this winter. I was able to taste several very high quality pies, among an unfortunate number of very mediocre ones.

Now I see clearly that I need to educate myself about what is and isn't possible to replicate elsewhere about this style.

For those of us that have been fortunate enough to go to Naples, it indeed is a very eye-opening experience.  Any particular places you liked or didn't like?

I had several pizzas in Rome while on my own, but in Naples I was part of a cruise ship port tour first to Pompeii and then to Naples for a pizza. So I didn't have any choice in the matter as to where to go. The pizza was good and just about what I had hoped.

I tried several pizzas of different styles in Rome and while some were very tasty, I wouldn't go back again and again.

The most exiting pizza in Naples was from Salvo:

Unfortunately, it is a bit hard to reach, but worth the effort. I also had good luck in a few very small, out of the way places which I passed by chance and would have a hard time locating again.

On the other hand, I tried the several "famous" pizzas in center of Naples, and was not very impressed by any of them - and some were just tourist traps. 

I wonder what else I missed!
