Pizza is a superlative pleasure. It is more and more an essential necessity for the tradition-hungry palates. It is so much essential that a simple gluten intolerance must not prevent from enjoying it. Marco Amoriello, three times World Champion for gluten-free Neapolitan pizza, knows all this very well. From Saturday, June 17th, he will be with his trademark “Dal Guappo” on the waterfront of Lungomare Caracciolo for the Napoli Pizza Village.
When Pizzeria Dal Guappo was born and what are its specialties?
Dal Guappo is a gastronomic reality that exists since 1988. The pizzeria, which at the Napoli Pizza Village will represent the area of Benevento, is located in the municipality of Moiano. This is a project strongly wanted by me, Marco Moriello, and to which I have devoted myself with passion for the last 29 years.
Banner of our brand is the gluten free pizza. Gluten-free dough has become our ideal trademark and pride since the nineties and Dal Guappo has been three times crowned as World Champion in this category.
What is the origin of this particular specialization?
In our family, and in our team, we have some cases of celiac disease. However, love for taste and pizza has managed to overcome any obstacle. And so we have tried, and found, the right formula to let even gluten-intolerants to have the opportunity to eat a pizza of excellence. This introduction lets us imagine that your legendary gluten free pizza will be certainly among the specialties you will bring to the Lungomare Caracciolo. Yes, exactly. We will show our “thoroughbred” at the Napoli Pizza Village. Between the 50 ovens on the waterfront, one is there specifically to bake gluten-free pizza: that will be mine.
Which products did you choose to dress your pizza?
We mostly want to exalt the tradition, so we chose the Margherita pizza as queen of the event. The stock of seasoning is ready and, as prescribed by the TGS pizza specifications, I will use the San Marzano classic tomato from Ciao Pomodori.
Considering those premises, how do you imagine the Napoli Pizza Village that is already around the corner?
The Napoli Pizza Village is a national-level event. The square is a dish that delights, but also an artwork. There will be plenty of true lovers of pizza, and I hope that each of them will be able to satisfy their needs, having fun in the wonderful setting of the Gulf of Naples.
