Before the chef's left Naples they had to go and taste some authentic Napolian pizza. The restaurant that is pictured above, is set with the beautiful view of the coast. The pizza was prepared by certified pizzaiolo's, that have perfected the art. You must become certified, to be considered a pizzaiolo/a. Becoming a world class pizzaiolo requires commitment and training in the tradition of Italian artisan pizza making. It is an art and is classified as one in Italy. There are many different styles and preparations of pizza throughout the Italian regions, making the chef's journey very enjoyable and educational. Trying all the different styles to bring the authenticity and tradition to Winter Park.
The pictures below are from Sorrento, Italy. Sorrento is a small town wonderfully located over white steep cliffs and offers a fantastic view over the Bay of Naples. Brandon and Matt were headed to Sorrento to see "one of the most famous products of the Italian gastronomic tradition." The pizza "a metro" which means a long and rectangular pizza. It can be several meters in length. A bright invention "patented" by Gigino Dell'Amura, who at the beginning of the thirties established the bases for the transformation of the historical family bakery in the biggest Pizza-Restaurant of the world, whose fame spread beyond the national borders. A new name has been added to the primary one, "The University of Pizza", suggested by the variety and deliciousness of the pizzas produced in this Pizza restaurant. It was once said that " It's impossible to explain or to tell about the secrets of such success if you have never had the pleasure, at least once in your life, to taste, one of the most unexcelled, superhuman pizzas!"
