La pizza the true story from naples
The pizza was born amid the poverty and exuberance of Naples. The classic Margherita and Marinara pizzas are linked not only to the city's fresh produce of tomatoes, garlic, buffalo mozzarella, olive oil and basil, but also to its history, religion, mythology and street life. This vibrant and colourful book is a celebration of the Neapolitan pizza and of the city itself. Over 200 photographs evoke the street atmosphere, from the vespas that swish by to the pizzerias where dough rises and wood burns in the wood-fired ovens. Featuring all the classic authentic pizza recipes, La Pizza also includes some wonderful new ideas, all based on genuine southern Italian ingredients.
