Making The Perfect Make Neapolitan Pizza

Red Neapolitan flour is a structured flour with high protein. Made from a selection of the highest-quality grains, it is characterised by high extensibility, excellent volume during baking and softness. Using this flour will ensure your pizza is light, airy delightful. 


1000 g Farina Napoletana “00” sacco rosso (Neapolitan Flour)

670 g Water

28 gr of salt

3 Dry brewer's yeast

Mortadella Bologna I.g.p.

Semi-liquid Stracciatella "d'Andria" sauce

Curly Endive salad

Drops of Calabrian DOP vanilla olive oil

Citrus Timut pepper


1. Starting the Dough

Begin by combining all the water, salt and about 10% of the flour in a mixing machine. Start mixing, then add the yeast followed by the rest of the flour gradually.

2. Kneading the Dough

Allow the dough to knead for 12 minutes at a low speed and then for an additional minute at a higher speed.

3. First Rise

Let the dough undergo its initial rise in bulk for 24 hours at a controlled temperature of +4°C.

4. Forming Dough Balls

After the first rise, portion the dough into balls weighing 230 grams each.

5. Second Rise

Allow the dough balls to rise at room temperature for 5 to 6 hours, or until they have doubled in size.

6. Baking the Pizza

Bake the pizza in an oven preheated to 390°C for approximately 2 minutes.
