The best ingredients make the best pizza!
San Marzano Tomatoes, a variety of Plum Tomatoes, are considered by many chef to be the Best Sauce Tomatoes in the world. The Story goes that the first seed of the San Marzano tomato came to Campania in 1770, as a gift from the Kingdom of Perú to the Kingdom of Naples, and that it was planted in the area that correspond to the present township of San Marzano. They come from a small town of the same name near Naples, Italy and were first grown in volcanic soil in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. The bulk of San Marzano tomato growers in Naples are families, each with their own little plot, maybe one acre.
Simply put, Antico Molino Caputo makes the best Pizza Flour. Hand grown in the valley of Campania, the flour is harvested each fall and then stored until the warm months of June and July when it is taken from it’s hull. Human hands shuck the wheat and allow the centuries old mill to press and grind into a flour that can be found only in this area of Italy.
Our Italian built wood burning oven is the heart and soul of our Pizza. It’s the scorching heat this oven generates that makes the pizzas taste so great. These oven are hard to tame, but even harder not to love. A TRUE ITALIAN wood oven is a dynamic living thing, constantly in flux. The way the oven stores the heat, the smoky flavor imparted on the pizza from the wood, and the speed at which it cooks are all the keys to producing a Neapolitan style Pizza.
