At Brigade, we make our neapolitan pizzas the same way they were made 200 years ago.

What is neapolitan pizza?

Of all the different kinds of pizza, only Neapolitan pizza, is defined and governed by an official group called Vera Pizza Napoletana from Naples Italy. For more than 300 years Real neapolitan pizza have been governed by these rules. Our owner and chefs, Grace and Jean-Daniel are both VPN certified and are committed to bring you the real Naples experience.

A Neapolitan Pizza is by definition 12” in diameter, very thin, soft and moist in the middle, with leopard spots and slight charring around the crust. Eat like a true Neapolitan! They enjoy their pizza with a fork and knife, then dip their crust in the pool of cheese and olive oil.

Meet our wood-red ovens.

A really good Neapolitan pizza can only be achieved in wood burning ovens made by the artisans in Naples Italy. Our ovens are specifically made for cooking authentic Neapolitan pizzas. Each brick of our oven is hand made using volcanic clay from Mt. Vesuvius. Our ovens are specially designed to create and hold temperatures up to 1000F. Only with the high and intense dry heat of wood burning can you create that perfect Neapolitan lightly charred crust.
