Staying true to Italian heritage and in keeping with the strict guidelines set by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN), we at DeSano Pizza Bakery only use the highest quality Italian ingredients when creating our Neapolitan pizza. Flown in weekly from Napoli and Campania, these special ingredients are used in our family recipes and have been perfected over the generations. From handpicked San Marzano tomatoes to fresh and creamy Mozzarella di Bufala, see for yourself what goes into making our traditional pizza Napoletana.
Authentic Neapolitan pizza requires exceptional Italian flour for the dough. Tipo “true” 00 wheat flour combines the finest grind with just the right amount of protein, producing the perfect crust.
Mediterranean Sea Salt
The prized sea salt of Cervia comes from the historic salt flats in Emilia Romagna. Coined the “Pope’s salt” for centuries, this raw sea salt has a special sweetness, making it ideal for cooking and sprinkling on our pizza.
San Marzano Tomatoes
These meaty, bright-red tomatoes have a sweeter and stronger flavor than their cousin, Roma. Grown in a small town outside Naples, these delicious gems are the only tomatoes used in true Neapolitan pizza.
Mozzarella di Bufala Campana
Highly prized for its rich and creamy flavor, this fresh curd cheese is crafted from the milk of water buffalos living the good life in the Southern Italian countryside.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Intense in flavor, fragrant in aroma, this pure Italian olive oil is made with the finest olives, each hand-selected and pressed with care.
Considered the “king of herbs”, fresh basil is an essential ingredient for the VPN Pizza Margherita.
