    I'm sitting at Settebello waiting for my pizza and reading the propaganda about some pizza organization that they belong to called Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN) which was established in Napoli, Italy with the purpose of protecting the integrity of a Napoletana style of pizza. VPN requires that their members use only specific raw ingredients to create the pizza dough as well as the method of creating the dough (all by hand, no machines). VPN also dictates how the pizza must be cooked (bell shaped pizza oven powered by wood), the types of tomatoes that may be used as well as the types of cheeses.

    I'm thinking, ok, ok, enough with the marketing effort let's get some pizza. Moments later my Margherita pizza arrives and I feel myself start becoming a fan of the VPN. The aroma was unbelievable, it's obvious that only the freshest ingredients have been used.

    My first bite convinces me even more, the crust was perfection, just the right texture - not too soft and not too crisp. I tasted the fresh basil, tomatos, and mozzarella and I became a convert.
