Did you know Naples is the home of pizza?
I was also told that there is no bad pizza in Naples, every place you go you will leave with a happy smile on your face.
Well, I didn’t exactly intend to put it to a test as I had only a single chance to have pizza there, that’s why we picked Brandi Pizzeria.
This place is one of the oldest pizzerias in Italy, and legend says it was where the very first Margherita pizza was ever made, a gift for Queen Margherita that was visiting the city.
Of course, while in Naples we couldn’t miss this one!
Nothing inventive here, we were super traditional with our choices:
- To share: Vesuvio salad – smoked buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, olives, and mixed leaves.
- Hubby: Capricciosa pizza – tomato, cheese, mushrooms, peas, and cooked ham.
- Mine: Margherita pizza. (of course, right? 😜)
As you can immediately see, the Neapolitanian pizza has a different crust from the Romanian one.
The base is thin but the borders are fluffy and doughy, more like a bread texture.
It also has a generous amount of tomato sauce.
How did I find the pizza?
Well, personally, it was THE BEST PIZZA IV’E EVER HAD! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Everything was super delicious: tomato sauce, that buttery fresh mozzarella, the uber fluffy dough. YUM, YUM, YUM!
Just a side note about this pizza, different from the Romanian one, eating the whole thing is a very hard task.
The fluffy dough takes a lot of space in your stomach, so manage what you eat in order to finish your plate! 🙂
I also got excited and tried a shot of Limoncello, a traditional Italian liquor.
Super strong but it leaves a pleasant lemon flavour in your mouth. Recommended!
The place is small and located in a very busy area, so try to book in advance or arrive a bit earlier during peak hours.
Service was good and pizzas were on our tables very quickly.
Definitely, a must go while in Naples.
