Yes Michelle – the best pizza place in the world
“Da Michele” is not only the first pizzeria, but also the place that is said to make the best pizza. It opened in 1870 and has since continued to make pizza for tourists and locals alike every day.
In 1870, the Condurro family began to write stories about the long tradition of cooking pizza, right in the center of Naples. Michele Condurro, Salvatore’s son, perfected the family recipe and opened his first pizzeria in 1906. In 1930, the pizzeria moved to Via Cesare Sersale.
To this day, 5 generations of pizzerias have kept pizzerias alive, strictly following Michele’s grandfather’s instructions: no “junk food” type ingredients can be found on their plates.
Basically, the secret lies in the use of natural ingredients and the traditional yeast method of the dough used.
