Did you know?
Even though there is a wide range of different pizza styles in the Grand-Duchy, multiple Italian restaurants in Luxembourg take their inspiration from the Neapolitan style pizza. It has known such a remarkable success, that there is an Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, a non-profit organisation, which classifies all the ingredients necessary to create the original Neapolitan pizza. Key features of this pizza are their soft and soft crust with dark spots because it is usually baked in a hot oven. Have a look at their website to re-create a real pizza napoletana at home!
