Characteristics of Pizza NapoletanaPizza Napoletana is made with a soft dough and is cooked in a wood burning oven in about one minute. Because of this, Pizza Napoletana has several distinc-tive characteristics. Pizza in Napoli is soft and foldable and can be considered

wet by American standards, for this reason the people in Napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and a

fork. Blackened char spots on the pizza crust is a tell tale sign of Pizza Napoletana that has been cooked in a blistering hot, wood burning oven.

Each pizza is an individual work of art.

Hand Made OvenOur oven at Settebello was hand made by artisan

oven makers in Napoli, Italy. The floor of the oven is made with Biscotto di Sorrento and each brick is hand

pressed in Salerno, Italy. The mortar holding the bricks together is made with volcanic sand from Mt. Vesuvius. An artisan, hand made oven can properly cook a Pizza Napoletana in about one minute reaching temperatures of around 1000.

What is Settebello?Settebello is the most valuable and sought after card in the popular Italian card game Scopa. The Settebello is the given nickname to the seven of gold.

Pulcinella Pulcinella, often called Punch or Punchinello in English, is a masked clown from Commedia Dellarte and is the unofficial mascot of the city of Napoli.

Vera Pizza NapoletanaThe Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN) was established by a group of pizza makers in Napoli, Italy in 1984. Their sole purpose was

to protect the integrity and defend the origin of the pizza making tradition as it began in Napoli over 200 years ago. The VPN charter requires members to work the dough with the hands, that it be cooked directly on the surface of a pizza oven that is fueled solely by wood. The charter also requires specific types of tomatoes be used and only the use of fresh milk or buf-falo milk mozzarella is acceptable.

A Note About Take-Out Pizza in the United States has become synonymous with take out and delivery. In Italy

pizza is enjoyed directly out of the oven in a pizzeria, not from a box. We strongly recommend (especially if you have never experienced our pizza) that our pizza be eaten

in our pizzeria immediately after coming out of the oven. If that is not possible we recommend re-heating your pizza directly on a baking stone in your oven. 500 degrees

until the cheese bubbles (usually about 2 minutes).
