Jim Lahey's Margherita!

Aw, here we go! Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery/Co. fame showed the readers of New York magazine how a he makes a pizza Mergherita a while back. Be still my heart! This handsome pizzaiolo/baker/writer/sculptor can make me a pizza any day of the week, just shape it like a heart if you're into it Jim. You know what I'm sayin'. ;-) <3

VPN Makes A Margherita!

VPN Americas President Peppe Miele makes a Pizza Margherita.  Miele's  Antica Pizzeria was the first restaurant in the US certified by the A.V.P.N. in Naples, Italy.

Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN) is an international trade association, founded in Naples, Italy, in 1984 with the intention to promote and regulate the culinary traditions and nuances of the Neapolitan pizza. They do this by setting and maintaining a strict set of rules for making Neapolitan style pizza. Those rules regulate everything from the flour used to make the dough to the cheese to the oven/fire in which a pie is baked.
