Welcome to Naples. Harry Kersh: Hey guys, it’s Harry. Claudia Romeo: And this is Claudia. And today we’re in Naples, Italy, in the birthplace of pizza to find out which one
has the best one in town. Harry: So, there are over
3,000 pizzerias here in Naples, and pizza is a huge part of the culture. We’ve used TripAdvisor,
YouTube, social media to narrow it down to a top four. Claudia: We also spoke to a local expert that has eaten hundreds
of pizzas in his life. And he’s gonna give us his take on what a real Neapolitan pizza is. Antonio Fucito: So, pizza from Neapolitan is a kind of ritual. We cannot wait to eat the next pizza. And we just dream about
that thought all the time. A typical, classic margherita is made with tomato sauce, fior di
latte cheese, some basil, and you can add also some pecorino, if you like a more rich flavor. Harry: Now, it’s really warm. It’s really early, but I’m
excited to eat some pizza. Should we go? Claudia: Yeah, let’s go. Our first stop is at Gino e Toto Sorbillo, which is located in Naples’
historic city center. Antonio: Sorbillo, maybe, is
the most social pizza place in Italy and in the
world because the owner, Gino Sorbillo, is very well
known around the globe. He likes to experiment using some biological flour and try to push more in terms of ingredients in terms of atmosphere
in the center of Napoli. Claudia: We joined Gino
Sorbillo in his kitchen to show us how he makes his version of the perfect margherita pizza. Harry: This is a Sorbillo pizza. What’s it look like to you, Claudia? Claudia: Well, it looks incredible. I mean, just like, look
at all the colors in here. I love the fact that
the mozzarella is, like, sprinkled all over, and sort of, like, mixed
in with the tomato sauce. Do you know about the trick that you have to fold the tip? Harry: Interesting, OK. Claudia: I’ve never actually
believed in it, but, this makes it look like… oh, look at the juices coming out. That’s it. Harry: Cheers!
Claudia: Cheers! Just, like, biting into that basil leaf, it’s so refreshing. I love how it’s, like, all one flavor. They all mix in together.
Like, so heavenly. Harry: Yeah, they really do. I got a lot of the tomato, that’s, like, that kind of acidity, sweetness from the tomato
is really, really good. Claudia: The pizza itself
is, like, building up, like, from the actual crust to the tip. So you find the crust,
it’s, like, thicker, and then, of course, there’s this juice. But it’s still, like,
very soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and
then when you reach the tip it’s just, like, all the
flavors coming together and clicking at the same time. And you just reach that, like, perfection. Harry: Next, we head
to Starita, a pizzeria which is run by four generations
of the Starita family, who famously made pizza
for Pope John Paul II in the year 2000. Antonio: Starita is
another historic place. It offers many, many
different kind of pizza. Even the shapes, they have a horn pizza, horn fried pizza, it’s very nice to try. And the owner, Don Antonio,
is a master of marinara. Harry: It seems like there’s
maybe a bit more cheese than we had at Sorbillo. It’s, or at least it’s kinda like, it pulls a bit more. The crust looks incredible. The crust is a bit more, like,
pronounced on this pizza. Claudia: I think this one
looks a bit more uniform, like, all colors are
blend perfectly together. The tomato sauce looks brighter, just, like, looks slightly more red. Wow. That tomato sauce is really kicking in. Harry: Mm-hmm, that hits you. So, as we mentioned at the start, like, this dough has got
such a nice color to it. It’s got that kinda, like,
leopard-spotting going on, which, again, just like,
all of that is flavor ’cause that’s just coming
straight from the oven, straight from the wood going
straight onto the pizza. So, maybe a little bit
more, like, chewy and dense than the one we had before. Claudia: The pizza
toppings themselves, like, they’re quite richer, I think. Apart from the tomato,
like, the mozzarella is just, like, more in volume, so I think you need, like,
a stronger base to hold it, and then also, did you
notice with this one we didn’t flip, we didn’t flip the tip? There was no need for it. I mean, there was still a
lot of juice coming out, slight bit of oil, few drops, so I quite like that,
so I appreciate that. We now head out of the city center to visit Pizzaria La Notizia. Antonio: La Notizia is
far from the center, but it’s a nice place because the owner, Enzo Coccia, is a kind
of a bible of pizza. He knows everything about the pizza, and he has a kind of pizza that tends to have more
high-quality ingredients, so the price is higher than other places, but it’s worth it. Welcome to Naples. Harry: This one, the crust
looks a lot more, like, evenly browned than previous ones, where in the past it’s been kinda, like, pale in some spots and then
quite charred on the other. This is more like an even golden brown, which is interesting. So, one thing they do here, similarly to what they
were doing at Starita is they actually add some
pecorino onto the pizza, which to the sort of the purists might be a little bit controversial, but I’m interested to
see if it kinda, like, adds another layer to
the classic margherita. Claudia: Yeah, I have my doubts because I’m not a big fan of
grated cheese and pizza, especially because there’s
already mozzarella in there, which is, like, the cheese, for me. So, well, let’s see. You don’t judge a book by
its cover, let’s try it. Yeah, you get quite a lot
of the pecorino, actually. Harry: I quite like it. Do you like it? Claudia: Yeah, it’s not too bad, like, I had it with, like, a lot of my, the basil leaf on my slice, and they blended together quite well, like, the basil and the pecorino. Harry: Yeah, I was gonna say
it’s a lot more, like, sharp compared to just mozzarella, which can just kinda blend
into the sauce and other stuff, so you actually get, like,
a cheesier taste with it. Claudia: Yeah, first bite
is definitely cheesy. What do you think of the crust? Harry: I think it’s good. It’s got more chew to it than, say, Sorbillo did, but I quite like it, it’s chewy, and, again, it’s useful ’cause
it just holds things better if it’s got a bit more,
like, strength to it. Claudia: It’s quite interesting
because, I don’t know, if you notice, like this one has, like, it’s quite similar in terms
of, like, the way it looks to Sorbillo’s, but then
its texture is quite, like, it’s just another game. Like, it’s much more uniform and, like, it has a stronger bite,
which is definitely slightly harder I would say. Harry: Next, we head to our final stop. Antica Pizzeria Da Michele. It’s known for its huge pizzas, and it shot to fame when it was featured in “Eat Pray Love,”
starring Julia Roberts. Antonio: La Michele, of course, is very famous for the
movie “Eat Pray Love,” but also for its style. It’s called in Italian “a ruota di carro.” It’s like wagon wheels. It means nothing in English, but it means that the, it’s so big, it’s bigger
than the plate behind pizza. Harry: This might be
the best-looking pizza that we’ve had today. I think in terms of,
like, they’ve really got the kind of leopard-spotting on the crust just really perfect. It’s a lovely golden-brown color, then you’ve got a lot of
these charred spots going on. The distribution of the
cheese looks quite good, and you’ve got the basil as well. It just all looks very picture-perfect. Claudia: Yeah, that’s true, and I also like the fact that you can see, like, the tomato sauce sort of, like, fading into the crust in here and getting, like, sort of orangey. Yeah, I agree. Like, you know, if you want an Insta shot, this is your pizza. Are you channeling your
inner Julia Roberts? How much of a relationship
are you having with this pizza right now? Harry: I’m, like, in a
committed relationship with this pizza. We’re thinking about
buying a house together. Claudia: Yeah, yeah, I like this a lot. Harry: I was also, I was
interested to hear that they don’t use olive oil here, they use soy oil instead. You get the kind of
texture that we’re used to, but I think, I mean, I can definitely
taste a bit more of kinda the mozzarella, I think, and the tomato as well, so I
think it’s a pretty good idea. Claudia: Yeah, definitely, there was no oil at all in
the bite that I just gave, it was really just, like, all the juices from the mozzarella and the tomato. Really couldn’t taste the oil. Harry: Yeah, I think the crust definitely isn’t quite as doughy as
we had it at La Natizia. I’ve had to bring the flip
back to kinda make sure that it doesn’t fall apart on me too much, but it’s good. It really is, it’s less about the crust, more about the toppings and, like, the freshness of the tomato. Claudia: Now it’s time for us to decide which pizza is the best of the best. So, here we are, we’re standing in front of Mount Vesuvius, which is Naples’ iconic volcano, and it is time to pick our winner. Harry: We’ve eaten some
amazing pizzas today, and picking a winner is
gonna be really tough, but I’m fairly confident in my decision, so I think we should see what we picked. One, two, three. Ah, OK. Claudia: Oh, yeah, I see why
you’re going for that one. Harry: OK, we’ve got a split. So, let’s see if one of us can convince the other to come around. So, why did you like Starita so much? Claudia: Well, the reason
why I like Starita was, like, because Don Antonio was, like, really, really bringing the vibe, like, up to the next level. Like, it was such a nice
character, and he’s, like, among our top four and is, like, really making, like, a (chef’s kiss), out-of-this-world product. And I also, yeah, I also liked the fact that he
put olive oil on top of it, which is something that
Da Michele doesn’t have. Harry: So, you make some very good points. I went for Da Michele because it just kind of had
everything that you would expect from a traditional Neapolitan pizza joint. The vibe in there was great as well, it was very traditional, you
had the kind of tiled floors and tiled walls. It still looked the
same as it did back when Julia Roberts had a
relationship with her pizza back in “Eat Pray Love,” so I think, kind of, if you’re a tourist who’s coming to Naples and
looking for a Neapolitan pizza, I think that would give you maybe the best, like, touristy experience. Claudia: Wouldn’t you say that, like, maybe Da Michele was what Starita is now about, like, 20 years ago? You know, when, like, the
owners were still, like, actually there making the pizza, you know, you were getting in and you were welcomed by, like, the old guy that was, like, very
passionate about their work and then they were showing
you around, you know. To me, that is, like,
really, really important, to have not only the product, but also, like, the person
that makes it, that likes, really really strongly loves it, and is still kind of, like,
there looking after tradition. Harry: I think I’m gonna
have to agree with you. I think if you want a
really authentic experience, Starita’s the place to go, just because Don Antonio
loved what he did so much. It really did show, and the pizza had olive oil, which apparently is a
deal breaker for Claudia. Claudia: Yeah, no olive oil, no party.

    I'm sorry, but because of my love of protein in my every meal, that pizza is boring and just full of carbs.
    If I wanna eat that piece of carbs by myself I would at least load it with bunch of meat AND chicken to get the protein.

    Um….no. She said the cheese is spread all over. Its not. The cheese nor the basil is spread all over. Look at that whole rim of sauce between the cheese and the crust…..nothing there. One problem I saw, and maybe this would help, putting the spread out dough onto the cooking pale before adding the sauce and cheese and other toppings. That way the pizza pie keeps its shape and toppings dont shift around.

    Not including 50 Kalo by Ciro Salvo in this list, the Naples restaurant ranked 3rd best in Italy (behind Pepe in Grani and Masanielli – in Caiazzo and Caserta respectively) and the London restaurant ranked No. 1 in Europe, makes this vid simply invalid. Not that Notizia and Sorbillo are bad, on the contrary they are indeed great pizzerias, but Michelle is pretty basic and only famous because of the movie "eat, pray, love. And it makes me wonder if I should disregard the rest of your "best of" vids as well.

    I've been to Don Antonio by Starita in NYC and that was the best pizza by far I've ever had in NYC. Bests any of the other places I've been to and I've been almost everywhere.

    Thank you for narrowing this down to only one pizzeria. I’ve always been terrified knowing that when I finally made my way down to Napoli, I might have to eat more than one pizza!
