Ciao and the specialties of Gigino Pizza a Metro at NPV 2017

Da Gigino Università della Pizzza is a sheer reference point for Campania region in terms of pizza in its more material sense, the one in which the dough disc does not change only depending on the dressing, but also according to the “length of the hunger”. Indeed, the pizza by the meter is not round, and you choose its length. This preparation method was even patented in the 1960s. Giovanni De Simone defends the colors of what is now a true University of Pizza, both for the skill of its pizza makers and for the courses dedicated to the White Art that are regularly held in this pizzeria of Vico Equense.
We could not miss the chance to have a chat about the Napoli Pizza Village  2017 with such an ancient pizza institution.

– What specialties are you going to show on the Lungomare Caracciolo waterfront?
At the Napoli Pizza Village I will introduce a pizza by the meter with provola cheese and lemon rind, together with the great classic of “Gigino Pizza a metro”: the Margherita pizza by the meter.

– Which tomato will you use for your pizza?
The rules for dressing a pizza by the meter are the same for the classic pizzas and the ingredients are the same prescribed by the TGS pizza specification for the Margherita pizza. For the Margherita by the meter, then, we use the classic peeled tomatoes of Mount Vesuvius.
– Why did you choose this pizza to represent you at NPV?
Because it is our strong suit. It is for this pizza that our customers have given us the honorary title of University of Pizza: you have to taste to understand the differences.

– What do you expect from the Caputo Napoli Pizza Village 2017?
The Napoli Pizza Village 2017 is a special edition: an affirmed format, but with a renewed timeline. 10 days to taste our pizza by the meter both at lunch and dinner seems to us to be a wonderful showcase to make known even more all over the world the goodness of this specialty.

Ciao and the specialties of Dal Guappo at Napoli Pizza Village 2017

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.
