More about Neapolitan style pizza:
While the benefits of a Mediterranean diet are well documented, it's not until you travel to southern
Italy that you discover how healthy the people appear. We don't know if it's because Naples is the
birthplace of both espresso and pizza, but Neapolitans exude energy. While we are not nutritionists,
there appears to be some fundamental reasons why that diet is healthier than others -- specifically
how Neapolitans make and enjoy their pizzas.
1. Crushed Tomatoes: One thing that usually surprises our customers is the answer to what's in our
tomato sauce: Our sauce is simply crushed tomatoes we import from southern Italy– nothing else. Just
pick up a jar of tomato sauce in the store and it's shocking how much stuff is in there besides tomatoes.
2. Dough: It is no secret that our dough recipe is top secret! While it contains only flour, yeast,
water and salt it is a very complicated recipe and scientific process. We are passionate about making
dough from scratch every day and committed to the old world standard of dough making.
3. Ingredients: We take pride in using fresh, natural, non-processed "whole" ingredients. All of our
vegetables are received fresh and prepped daily. We source all of our meats and cheeses from purveyors
dedicated to quality above all else. Our prosciutto from Parma, Italy is made using a centuries old
technique and our sausage is from a local family run whole hog producer. At Punch, we don't cut corners
and purchase ingredients based on quality first.
When people come to Punch for the first time many are surprised by the difference in the amount of toppings
compared to traditional American pizza. Neapolitan pizzas are designed to be light and are offered as a
first course in Naples rather than a main course. After eating an American pizza you are usually left feeling
heavy and maybe a little guilty but after eating a Neapolitan pizza you actually feel good and even energized.
The classic pizza of Naples, Italy is the Margherita. This pizza is made with only fresh mozzarella, crushed
tomatoes, and fresh basil. When this “simple” pizza is prepared and cooked properly it is one of the most
delicious things in the world. We like to use this pizza to measure our competitors because this pizza doesn't
lie – you can tell almost everything about a restaurant's commitment to quality on how the classic Margherita tastes.
