Una Pizza Napoletana – Authentic Naples Style Pizza East Village NY

East Village New York
Una Pizza Napoletana is a minimalist restaurant that celebrates the art of pizza making. On the menu you’ll only find 3-5 ingredients including buffalo mozzarella, olive oil, 2 types of tomatoes, salt, garlic and basil. That’s it! Don’t even think about asking for any meat toppings for these pizzas because Pizza Napoletana wants you to enjoy the simplicity and the powerful flavors from these select ingredients. All pizzas doughs are handmade and baked in their wood oven which creates a great crunch in the crust and imparts a rich smokey flavor. I tried the Margherita (san marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh basil, & sea salt) and the Filetti ( fresh cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, fresh garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh basil, sea salt ). Both were amazing but on the Margherita, the san marzano tomatoes were a little more liquid and made the pizza a little runny. The Filetti on the otherhand was perfectly done with the fesh cherry tomatoes. I would definitely recommend the Filetti for all you pizza purists. Enjoy!
