Naples EDITOR'S PICKS
All that Pizzaz with UNESCO Neapolitan Pizza-making
Arguably Italy's most iconic and well-known food export, pizza has reached the far corners of the globe, with regional or national variations and adaptations to the much-loved dish. But have you heard of the art of "pizzaiuolo" (twirling the dough then baking it in a wood-fired brick oven)? If not, you're not alone, as it is little-known outside of Naples. That might soon change, though, as UNESCO has given this quaint traditional craft world heritage status! Get a taste of world heritage now!
Mamma Mia! Did you know?
🍕 The traditional Neapolitan pizza-making craft made its way into UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage list in 2017.
🍕 The pizzaiuolo craft is handed down from generation to generation.
🍕 It includes the social ritual of songs, stories, and gestures that take place between "pizzaiuoli" (pizza makers) and diners in working-class Neapolitan neighborhoods.
🍕 Traditional Neapolitan pizza has two classic versions: margherita (tomato, mozzarella, oil, basil) and marinara (tomato, garlic, oregano, oil).
🍕 Fan of pineapples on pizza? Locals weigh in and say it's a no-no!
