Looking for pizza in Naples

The city of Naples is famous for a lot of things, but the thing most people think of is pizza.

The first ever Margherita is said to have been served at Brandi, Julia Roberts famously had pizza at L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele in Eat Pray Love and Anthony Bourdain himself visited Pizzeria Pellone in 2011.

So I had to check it out.

Sorbillo, Naples The queue at Sorbillo. (Update: This place was bombed on January 15th, less than a month after my visit.)

The narrow alleys smells delicious everywhere I go. The art of creating these dough circles is heavily regulated by the rules from 2004, and even included on the UNESCO list of culture heritage.

“Pizza makes me think that anything is possible”, as Henry Rollins once put it.

Pellone, Naples The queue at Pellone.

However, the queues are simply murderous. Get a reservation in good time, or be prepared to wait a very long time in line.

Pizza in Naples The prize!

But fortunately, when you receive your pizza, everything is forgotten.
