What is Neapolitan Pizza?

Neapolitan pizza is considered by many to be the world’s best pizza style. Invented in the late 1800s in Naples, Neapolitan-style pizza offers a delicious morsel of history with every bite.

Neapolitan pizza is defined by its crust, which is slightly crispy on the outside and wonderfully chewy within after a 90-second turn in the oven. Margherita pizza – topped with tomatoes, basil, and creamy fresh mozzarella – is the most popular Neapolitan pizza, but there are tons of variations available near you on Slice.

With the creation of the Neapolitan pizza, the modern pizza as we know it today was born. Grab a slice of history and a slice of delicious Neapolitan pizza.
