Best pizzas outside of Naples

Don't go to any pizza place - choose the best.

What is so special about the pizza in Naples?

Neapolitan pizza, or pizza Napoletana, is a type of pizza that has its origins in Naples. It is made of fresh ingredients from the area of Campania like pizza dough, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and olive oil. The pizza is then baked for 60 to 90 seconds  in a minimum 450°C stone oven with a wood fire. The result is a fluffy, doughy and cheesy pizza that is slightly watery in the middle because of the fresh ingredients. Luckily, there are pizzas in other cities as well that are just as good as the pizza from Naples. So, we created a list with best pizzas outside of Naples that are really special:

1. Baest in Copenhagen (@baestcph)

Christian Puglisi and his team are sourcing organic produce of the highest quality and sustainability and transforming them into a truly excellent pizza. A place where the best Danish, local, sustainable and organic produce is combined with Italian craftsmanship. Instead of importing mozzarella, Baest makes it own their own by hand with the best raw milk and stretching it several times a day.  They only important a 500°C wood-fired custom made oven from Naples, which was built for them.

2. PST in Tokyo (@pizzastudiotamaki)
