Best Pizza in Naples, Italy Travel Food Video Transcript:

We have just arrived here in Naples and we are in town on a mission. Our mission is simple. To eat as much pizza as possible. Pizza was my favorite food growing up and we are visiting Naples the birthplace of pizza (Neapolitan pizza). We’ve got two days here. Our goal is to try and hit up five different pizzerias. We’ve searched the best of the best. We’re going to visit them all and then we’re going to rank them and let you know what our favorite one is. Let’s eat pizza.

We are now approaching our first pizzeria of the day. It is just down the street. We’re going to be eating at L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele. It is one of the most famous pizzerias in the whole city because they filmed a scene of Eat, Pray, Love here with Julia Roberts when she comes to Naples to devour pizza.

We’re going to be ordering two kinds of pizza. We are planning to go for the margherita and marinara.

Wow! Is one way to describe that pizza experience. So it was delicious. It was amazing. It was huge. It was crowded.

It is time for our second pizza of the day. We have come to Port’Alba which has the distinction of being one of the oldest pizzerias in all of Naples. This one dates back to 1738.

Third pizzeria here in Naples and right now yes we’re at Di Matteo. There is a huge crowd. At Di Matteo they are really popular for their street food. Like street pizza. We got a fried pizza and I got al forno which is in the oven – basically a folded margherita. Calling it portafoglio because it has been folded in four.

Pizza number 2 at Di Matteo was the fried variety. Pizza frita. It cost 1.50 Euros.

This is our forth pizzeria here in Naples called El Pizzeria Dal Presidente. We ordered the pizza margherita and a fried one with salami, pomodoro and two kinds of cheese.

We are at pizza place five of five at a place called La Cantina Dei Mille right by the train station.

We are feeling pretty stuffed. 10 pizzas in 2 days. That is a lot of pizza.

That was an insane pizza taste test in Naples. We got to try the best pizzas in the whole city (pizza Napoletana) and that makes me happy because I love pizza. We hope you guys enjoyed following along on this pizza adventure in Naples (pizza Napoletana). Ciao.

This is part of our Travel in Italy video series showcasing Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine.
