If you live in Fullerton and are dying for some authentic pizza, look no further than the now open Fuoco Pizzeria Napoletana. After three generations of the Pizzaioli family, the authentic fire baked Pizza Napoletana has been perfected. “Fuoco,” or fire, is one of the most important elements that is needed in making the Pizza Napoletana.
The fire of their hand-made ovens burn at 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, fueled by the key object, wood. Their specially crafted oven is a conception of love and passion from master artisan, Stefano Ferrara. Hand-crafted near Naples, Italy utilizing Santa Maria bricks from the Campania region of Italy and Biscotto di Sorrento from Sorrento, Italy, and the volcanic sand from Mt. Vesuvius, this oven is capable of withstanding the intense temperatures required to make this exceptional creation.
The recipe for this unique pizza originated from Napoli. The specifications and traditions implemented over 200 years ago still stand today. They are very proud to uphold these standards and bring the taste of Italy to you.
A pizza Napoletana is created from soft bread which is naturally leavened using a vast amount of time and very little yeast. This makes for a pizza that is easy to digest and light. The baking process results in a somewhat charred and airy crust full of smoky flavor, but interestingly takes only 90 seconds to make.
The only way to present these authentic flavors is by bringing all of the main ingredients from Italy. These essential components include Caputo flour, San Marzano tomatoes, and extra fine double zero “00,” both from Napoli. A trained pizzaiolo, or pizza maker, is the key to bringing the oven and the ingredients together as one making an authentic pizza, which is why this pizzeria is proud to carry this tradition into the third generation and is a family of pizzaioli.
When you are eating at Fuoco Pizzeria Napoletana, guests should start their meal off with such Italian favorites as Prosciutto e Mozzarella, Insalata Della Casa, and Involtini Ai Sapori which is sliced prosciutto crudo wrapped around fresh mozzarella cheese. Enjoy pizza favorites like Bufala pizza, Salciccia e Friarielli pizza, Funghi e Salciccia pizza, along with calzones, and paninis. Now, finish your meal off with Italian desserts like Nutella Pizza, Spumoni Bomba, and Limoncello Flute.
So, if you love the authentic taste of pizza straight from Italy then you should try out Fuoco Pizzeria Napoletana.
