Neapoliitan Style Pizza

17:53

Neapolitan pizza is the classic Italian pizza made with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.The dough for this pizza is kneaded by hands rather than machines.and also the pizza is made by stretching the dough.Neapolitan pizza is soft ,elastic and fragrant after baking and taste very flavorful.





I also added some mushrooms and olive, but the classic Neapolitan pizza is served without so many toppings.The main variations are pizza marinara ,pizza margherita and pizza margherita extra.This is my last post from  San Francisco's take out's Arinell Pizza.
