Best Neapolitan pizza in Las Vegas is a designation we share proudly. We appreciate all the support from the locals that made this possible. While we have the best local Neapolitan, we’re discussing the origins of the pizza itself.
The Neapolitan pizza was invented in Naples. Before the seventeen hundreds, flat breads weren’t topped with tomatoes and at the time didn’t resemble what we identify as pizza. While tomatoes were brought to Europe in the 16th Century, they were believed to be poisonous until the late 18th Century. It was then that the traditional flatbread was topped with tomatoes and became extremely popular. In a Naples pizzeria, baker Raffaele Esposito is credited with creating what we call the Margherita pizza. Made with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil leaves, this is actually now known as the classic Neapolitan pizza!
As mentioned above, Neapolitan pizza is only made with simple, fresh ingredients, including basic dough, raw tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, basil, and olive oil. Other toppings found in America are not allowed on this style. Another defining characteristic is that the pizza typically has more sauce than cheese, which makes it difficult to serve by the slice. Instead, Neapolitan pizzas are often smaller and closer to a personal-sized pizza. Also, the pizza is cooked at an extremely high temperature, usually 800 to 900 degrees F, for under 90 seconds.
