Pizza making

The world's first true pizzeria, "Antica Pizzeria Port'Alba", opened in 1830 and is still in business today in Naples. Pizzerias in this era usually included a large brick oven, a marble counter where the crust was prepared, and a shelf lined with ingredients. Contemporary Neapolitan pizzerias are prepared in the same way they were 100 years ago.  In 1889, Rafaele Esposito of the Pizzeria di Pietro e Basta Cosi (now called Pizzeria Brandi) baked pizza especially for the visit of King Umberto I and Queen Margherita. To make the pizza a little more patriotic-looking, Esposito used red tomato sauce, white mozzarella cheese and green basil leaves as toppings. Queen Margherita loved the pizza, and what eventually became Pizza Margherita has since become an international standard.

Neapolitan pizza is still widely regarded as the best in the world, probably because of the fresh ingredients available to Neapolitan pizzerias: herbs, garlic, and tomatoes grown in the rich volcanic ash of Vesuvius, and fresh mozzarella from water buffalo milk.

Hence, guests will see expert Pizzaioli (makers of pizza)  assembling the entire pizza on a marble counter right before the customer's eyes and showing them how to make a real Neapolitan pizza, building up a little demonstration just for them.

Hence, guests will see expert "pizza-makers" showing them how to make a real Neapolitan pizza, building up a little demonstration just for them.
