                                           THE BEST PIZZA IN NEW ZEALAND    



After 13 years in the Italian Navy, emigrating and opening a small local pizzeria in New Zealand was perhaps was a journey full circle, connecting Francesco back to his time working in his Uncle’s small pizzeria after school, and his Italian passion for good food. We caught up with New Zealand’s own Napoli pizza chef and 2015 Pizza Champion Winner, Franscesco Acri from Settebello in New Lynn, Auckland, to learn about making the best pizza.

    ( Pizza is probably one of our first experiences of falling in love with ‘international’ cuisine. However a significant number of us pizza lovers have never had the blessed opportunity to experience authentic pizza. Pizza originating from Naples, Italy in the late 18th Century – Pizza Napoletana.)

  A beautifully consistent, super thin base  A 1-2cm crust, ‘cornicione’, with springy, light aeration, soft      and gently chewy.
