[Thoughts on the Table – 66] Introducing Giuseppe D’Angelo from Pizza Dixit

Giuseppe from Pizza Dixit

This episode’s guest is Giuseppe D’Angelo, the author of Pizza Dixit, the blog on Neapolitan pizza in the world. Born and raised in Naples, Giuseppe made a mission for himself to discover the best Neapolitan pizzerias around the world. In doing so, he investigates how pizza makers outside of Naples can obtain an excellent product by operating on the variables they still can control, such as the dough, the oven, and the choice of ingredients, starting of course from tomato sauce and mozzarella.

During the episode, Giuseppe tries to define what Neapolitan pizza *is*, a controversial topic even within Naples itself, by stating what Neapolitan pizza definitely is not! He also describes how modern pizza ovens can approximate the results of traditional wood-burning ovens while helping pizza makers comply with city regulations.

You can follow Pizza Dixit in both English and Italian on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

  1. I listed to the truth about Neapolitan Pizza while shopping this morning. I don’t know why but it put this in mind:

    Heaven is where the police are British, the cooks are French,
    the mechanics German, the lovers Italian and it’s all organized by the
    Swiss.

    Hell is where the chefs are British, the mechanics French,
    the lover’s Swiss, the police German and it’s all organized by the Italians
