Nestled on the enchanting cliffs of Positano, Italy, you find yourself surrounded by the breathtaking panoramic views of the Amalfi Coast. Today, you're about to embark on a culinary journey like no other—a private Neapolitan pizza class set in this idyllic coastal paradise.

Your day begins by meeting your driver at your Positano hotel. It's your private driver, ready to escort you to the location of your pizza-making adventure. As you wind along the scenic coastal roads, anticipation builds for the hands-on experience that awaits.

Upon arrival at the panoramic location overlooking the Positano coast, you're greeted by your private pizza chef, a master of the craft who holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the perfect Neapolitan pizza. With the azure waters as your backdrop, you're captivated as the chef begins to unravel the rich history and legend of the pizza Margherita.

As the story goes, in 1889, the pizza Margherita was created to honor Queen Margherita of Savoy during a visit to Naples. The patriotic colors of the pizza—red tomatoes, white mozzarella, and green basil—mirrored the colors of the Italian flag. This iconic pizza not only delighted the queen's palate but also captured the hearts of pizza lovers around the world.

Inspired by this tale, you dive into the pizza-making process under the expert guidance of your chef. From hand-stretching the dough to meticulously layering on the freshest ingredients, you learn the artistry and precision required to achieve the perfect pizza.

With a variety of toppings at your disposal, you unleash your creativity, crafting personalized pizzas that reflect your unique taste preferences. As the pizzas bake in the wood-fired oven, filling the air with tantalizing aromas, you gather around the table to indulge in a feast fit for royalty.

The meal begins with a selection of local appetizers and cheeses, perfectly complemented by regional wines that accentuate the flavors of the Amalfi Coast. Each bite is a symphony of flavors, a testament to the culinary excellence of this vibrant region.

As the sun begins to set over the shimmering waters, you conclude your gastronomic adventure with a sweet finale—a delectable dessert paired with homemade limoncello, crafted from the sun-kissed lemons of the Amalfi Coast.

With hearts and bellies full, you bid farewell to your private pizza paradise, knowing that the memories of this unforgettable experience will linger long after the last slice is savored. As your driver escorts you back to your hotel in Positano, you reflect on the magic of the day, grateful for the opportunity to immerse yourself in the timeless art of Neapolitan pizza-making amidst the beauty of the Italian coastline.

F.A.Q.


 

  • How is Neapolitan pizza different from other pizza?


Neapolitan pizza, or pizza Napoletana, is renowned worldwide for its distinctive characteristics and centuries-old tradition. Here's how Neapolitan pizza differs from other types of pizza:

1. Authenticity: Neapolitan pizza is deeply rooted in tradition and must adhere to strict guidelines outlined by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) to be considered authentic. These guidelines dictate everything from the dough's ingredients and preparation to the pizza's cooking method and toppings.

2. Dough: Neapolitan pizza dough is made from just four basic ingredients: flour (typically highly refined Italian "00" flour), water, salt, and yeast. It is hand-kneaded and left to ferment for a minimum of 8 to 24 hours, resulting in a soft, elastic, and slightly chewy crust.

3. Shape and Size: Neapolitan pizza is traditionally round with a raised edge, or cornicione, and a thin center. It is typically smaller in size, usually around 11 to 12 inches (28 to 30 centimeters) in diameter, to ensure even cooking in the high-temperature wood-fired ovens.

4. Toppings: Authentic Neapolitan pizza is minimalist in its toppings, focusing on quality over quantity. The classic Neapolitan pizza, Pizza Margherita, is topped with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese (usually Fior di Latte or buffalo mozzarella), fresh basil leaves, extra-virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Other traditional toppings may include marinara sauce (tomato, garlic, oregano, and olive oil) or variations with anchovies, capers, or olives.

5. Cooking Method: Neapolitan pizza is cooked in a wood-fired brick oven at very high temperatures, typically around 430-480°C (800-900°F). The pizza cooks quickly, usually in just 60-90 seconds, resulting in a blistered and charred crust with a soft and tender interior.

6. Certification: Authentic Neapolitan pizzerias may display the AVPN certification, indicating that they adhere to the association's strict standards for ingredients, preparation, and cooking methods.

Overall, Neapolitan pizza stands out for its simplicity, quality ingredients, and adherence to tradition, making it a beloved culinary icon not only in Naples but around the world. Its unique characteristics set it apart from other styles of pizza and contribute to its enduring popularity among pizza aficionados.
