Vera Pizza Napoletana

True Neapolitan Pizza

Our Story

It starts in a small palazzo on Via Tevere—a street in the heart of Naples where our family story begins. Throughout childhood and to this day, we have spent countless summers on Via Tevere, where we quickly learned about the importance of food in the Neapolitan way of life. Of the utmost significance is the iconic pizza, which has become the symbol of Naples. Pizza Napoletana is lauded for its rustic simplicity, its traditional wood-fire cooking method and its celebration of Neapolitan ingredients. Our goal is to honour our family heritage and the tradition of pizza-making by serving up la vera pizza Napoletana
the true Neapolitan pizza.

Via Tevere is proud to be member #399 of the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (AVPN).

AVPN certification ensures and protects the authenticity and traditional cooking method of Neapolitan pizza. This is done by ensuring the pizzeria has the proper equipment (dough mixer, Carrera Marble prep top, woodfire oven), as well as proper dough-making, stretching, topping and cooking techniques.

True Neapolitan pizzas are made with double zero flour, San Marzano tomatoes from the Campania region, and fior di latte (milky fresh mozzarella). In Naples (as well as according to VPN guidelines), basil is placed on top of the pizza prior to cooking. The dough must be hand stretched with no added mechanical support (no rolling pin or stretcher) and must be cooked in a woodfire oven.

Neapolitan pizza will have minimal toppings for a balance of flavour and the crust is expected to be lightly charred, slightly chewy, and soft in the centre. In true Neapolitan style, our pizzas are brought to the table uncut and can be enjoyed with a knife and fork or by hand. Come join us soon to experience la Vera Pizza Napoletana.

Food Truck

What is a Neapolitan SALTIMBOCCA?

In short, it’s a “pizzeria sandwich”. The bread is baked in our 900° woodfire oven where it takes on the characteristics of Pizza Napoletana—soft, yet charred with the classic fire-roasted spotting. The bread is then loaded with meat and cheese, roasted over the fire and finished with fresh tomato and crisp arugula.
