You’re Doing It Wrong: Joe Cicala Teaches Us How To Eat Real Neapolitan Pizza


Brigantessa8

So you guys know all about Brigantessa by this point, right? Joe Cicala‘s new place on East Passyunk? His ode to Neapolitan street food and super-authentic pizza?

Yeah, well apparently what he’s trying to do at Brigantessa (which includes, among other things, being the first DOC-certified Neapolitan pizzeria in Philly which involves following a whole bunch of rules made by Italians to govern what is and is not a proper pizza) is confusing some folks. So he’s put out a video all about his oven, his pizzas, the right way to make a Neapolitan pie and the right way to eat them. In addition to being instructional, it’s also full of slo-mo pizza porn and lots of loving shots of that imported pizza oven, so be aware: Maybe don’t watch it until after you’ve had lunch.

So there you go–everything you need to know about what goes into making a serious Neapolitan pizza, and what goes into eating one. Bet you didn’t even know you were doing it wrong until you watched this, did you?
