AUTHENTIC pizza from NAPLES
fresh and simple
In 1926 Naples Football Club was formed. And the people of Naples are just as passionate about their pizza as they are about football.
Pizzeria 1926 is the sister restaurant of Locanda de Gusti owned and run by chef Rosario Sartore and his wife Maria.
Rosario grew up in Naples where pizza was, and still is, eaten every day as an inexpensive and filling meal.
FRESH AND SIMPLE
All the ingredients used at Pizzeria 1926 are fresh and simple. The very best varieties of tomatoes, burrata, mozzarella, sausage, flour and olive oil are imported from Italy, whilst meat, seafood and vegetables are sourced as locally as possible.
After World War II, food was scarce, and a regional variation of the pizza was developed in Naples - the pizza fritta. It's a delicious filled pizza that's deep-fried instead of oven-baked.
On Sundays in Naples, enterprising local women would operate pop-up pizzerias on the pavements outside their homes serving pizza fritta.
