Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: Back on the Food Tour of Italy, we have the famous Italian pizza. This man is a master pizza-maker of Pizza Di Matteo in Spaccanapoli, Naples. I would recommend this as being one of the best pizzerias in Naples in terms of location (right in the university district), price and quality. As you can see, even the pizza-maker loves his pizzas.

In terms of pizzas, there is an intense rivalry between Naples and Rome as to who made the first pizza and who now makes the best. I am biassed towards Naples of course, but agree with Wikipedia that it was at Pizza Brandi in Naples where the Pizza Margherita in Italy's tricolours was made for the Spanish/Neapolitan queen in 1889. The traditional ingredients of the Pizza Margherita are basil, San Marzano tomatoes (grown on the volcanic foothills of Mt Vesuvius) and the buffalo mozzarella from the Campi Flegrei and Salerno. Washed down with a cold beer (Nastro Azzurro of course) life does not get much better than this.

ITALIANO: Siamo ancora nel "Giro del Cibo Italiano" alla Pizzeria Di Matteo a Spaccanapoli, Napoli. Ovviamente questo guaglione piaciono le sue pizze ;) La Pizzeria e una dei migliori di Napoli nei termi di locazione, il prezzo ed il gusto.
