What is Neapolitan / Napoletana Pizza?
According to Wikipedia Neapolitan pizza (Italian: pizza napoletana) is made with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. It must be made with San Marzano tomatoes, which grow on the volcanic plains to the south of Mount Vesuvius, and mozzarella Campana, the DOP (PDO in English) version can be made with buffalo mozzarella cheese, ‘Mozzarella di Bufala Campana’ made with the milk from water buffalo raised in the marshlands of Campania and Lazio in a semi-wild state (this mozzarella is protected with its own European protected designation of origin).
Artisan Pizza Napoletana is in Island Harbor, Anguilla. Tucked away, this place is a hidden gem that has tourists and locals alike coming back for more and more of the great pizza and other tasty Italian treats.
The Brick Oven
What makes the Pizza so good is the fact that it is baked in an authentic brick oven. There is no doubt that authentic brick oven pizza is a notch above anything else. The brick oven is not only used for pizza and many travelers love other dishes like the authentic calzones that are also made in the brick oven.
