A family history, that of Pizzeria Porzio of Enrico Porzio: a family soaked of pizza tradition, like that of the Pellone family to which Enrico belongs and from which he has learned the trade, mixing together school and wood oven since childhood.
Then, in 1999, Enrico Porzio opened in Soccavo his first take-away pizzeria, which by 2013 has turned into a 70-seat restaurant, a take-away oven just a few distances away, a branch in Warsaw and the planned expansion in Florence and Milan: all of this under the banner of the pizza of excellence.
With the same enthusiasm with which he opened his pizzeria in via Cornelia dei Gracchi in Naples, Enrico tells us about his Napoli Pizza Village.
– What specialties are you going to show on the Lungomare Caracciolo waterfront?
I will propose my Poker, a pizza with four tones of flavor: a slice of Margherita, one of sausage and rapini, a petal of stuffed pizza and one of fried pizza.
– Which tomato you will use for your pizza Poker?
The classic peeled tomato with Mount Vesuvius’ tomatoes.
– Why did you choose a so much varied pizza to represent your pizzeria at NPV?
I chose the four nuances of taste representing the most classic flavors of the Neapolitan pizza art because I like to emphasize the popular tradition of my pizzeria. But above all, Poker is a pizza that surprises for the approach to four pizza cults, joining in this way tradition and innovation, a driving philosophy that has always pushed me to search for selected ingredients.
– What do you expect from the Caputo Napoli Pizza Village 2017?
Not of making a profit from it, this is sure. Indeed, I decided to create within the event my personal “Diversely Pizza Village” and so in the first four days of the NPV I will devolve any earnings to four associations working in sustaining young disabled persons. So I hope that my Poker will sell like bread!
