Pizza Fest. Naples.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

“Ma tu vuliv a’ pizz” are the lyrics of a famous Neapolitan song directed to a woman who only wanted to eat pizza. Do you only want pizza, too? If so, you should take part in the Pizzafest, Italy at least once in your life.

Everybody knows that pizza was born in Naples and this is why such a “delicious” event takes place in the city. The visitors at Napoli Pizza Village can enjoy different varieties of Pizza, and there are different activities in the city all day/night long.

The Pizzafest is celebrated for 11 days long on a 30000 sqm territory in Naples, which is called the previously mentioned Napoli Pizza Village (map).

Naples holds this event in honor of pizza every year: for 5 to 11 days. The most famous pizzerie from all over the world, compete against renowned local pizzaioli, who set up stands with tables where people can sit and taste different varieties of pizzas. At the end of the week-long celebration, a jury will judge, also by taking into account the opinion of all those who ate at the Pizzafest, the various pizzas and proclaim the best pizzaiolo in the world.

Neapolitan pizza

Naples-style pizza, is a style of pizza made with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. It must be made with either San Marzano tomatoes or Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio, which grow on the volcanic plains to the south of Mount Vesuvius, and Mozzarella di Bufala Campana, a protected designation of origin cheese made with the milk from water buffalo raised in the marshlands of Campania and Lazio in a semi-wild state, or “Mozzarella STG”, a cow’s milk mozzarella.

Neapolitan pizza is a Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) product in Europe, and the art of its making is included on UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage.

While pizza is a traditional Neapolitan dish, it became ubiquitous in the Italian cuisine only in modern times. In Naples every pizzeria makes a decent pizza, and Neapolitans believe their pizza is the best in the world.

Some places display the label “Vera Pizza Napoletana” (“True Neapolitan Pizza”, there is a Pulcinella mask baking a pizza in a stylized Vesuvio) which indicates that the pizzeria follows the standards of The Naples Pizza Association.

Da Michele (map) L’antica Pizzeria “da Michele” does one thing, very well, with high throughput: delicious Pizza Margheritas with a crust which is both thin and chewy. There is usually a queue. Get a numbered ticket from the waiter at the door when you arrive, then wait outside for your number to be called. You can also order pizzas to take away, in a first-come first-served queue.
