Atlanta, GA, June 27, 2018 – With a multitude of fantastic pizzas in the U.S., The Food Network has named Atlanta’s Amalfi Pizza as one of the Best Pizzas in America’s Biggest Cities. The feature focused on the top spots for a good pie in the 52 largest cities in the country, including Chicago and New York City. The article noted about Amalfi Pizza, “The pies are traditional, sometimes to the point of obscurity, like with their Carnavale pizza formed in the shape of a star with a ricotta-stuffed crust. It might sound like something dreamed up for Instagram, but it’s actually a special occasion pie served in Italy during Easter.”
“This feature speaks directly to our commitment to bringing an authentic product to our customers, ” said founding partner Stephen de Haan. “Along with other notoriety from Zagat and the AJC, this acknowledgement speaks to the hard work and dedication of our team.”
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Amalfi Pizza is a traditional Neapolitan pizzeria centered around two 6000 pound wood-burning brick ovens imported from Italy. Amalfi Pizza offers an authentic Italian menu that includes Neapolitan-style pizzas as well as authentic appetizers, fresh salads, traditional pasta dishes and savory desserts. Originating in and the true pizza of Naples in the 1600s, Vera Pizza Napoletana is 12 inches or less in size, made from simple fresh quality ingredients from the Campania region of Italy and cooked at temperatures in excess of 900 degrees in approximately 60 seconds. In addition to traveling to Naples and throughout the entire region to find the best ingredients, the operating partners Stephen de Haan and Greg Grant staged with the Italian Pizzaiolo Maestros at Pizzeria Mattozzi, established in 1830, and Pizzeria Da Attilo. This apprenticeship, along with studying in the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, allowed their passion for food to develop into the skills necessary to bring this historic, simple, and beautifully executed street food to Atlanta.
