Pizza craving? Make sure it is 100% Neapolitan. We tell you where to find it


Few restaurants in the world have the authenticity certificate granted by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, among them, three Mexican sites that you should know as soon as possible.

The Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana seeks to protect the appellation of origin of Neapolitan pizza. In 1984, the most famous Italian pizzaiolos of the time met to dictate the rules of a perfect pizza. For this, they grant a certification to those restaurants that comply with the strict rules of an authentic Neapolitan pizza.

1 . You must use ingredients from the Campania region, Naples such as San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella cheese, and extra virgin olive oil.

2. Its diameter should be 35 centimeters and its bark should not exceed 2 centimeters.

3 . It should be cooked in a wood oven in less than two minutes.

There are 740 locations around the world with this recognition and for the good fortune of many, there are only 3 Mexican places where you can try an authentic pizza.


In a corner in the Jardines del Pedregal neighborhood, in Mexico City is Ardente. It is a family business that thanks to its success also opened in the Countess. Here they work with ingredients of the best quality. It is a must for lovers of discrete but delicious places.

Naples Guadalajara

This restaurant is located at 1045 Rubén Darío Avenue, between Naples Street and Sicily, in front of the Rubén Darío Park. Once there we recommend ordering classic pizzas such as margarita (with Pomodoro sauce, mozzarella, and basil), plus of course many other varieties. For lovers of desserts, we suggest ordering the gianduiotto accompanied by vanilla gelato.

Il Castello Di Frabo Monterrey

In Nuevo León, you will find a building inspired by classic Italian architecture. Their sausages are 100% meat free of preservatives and additives made with the best processing techniques, which of course apply in their Neapolitan pizza.

If your obsession with pizza has no limits and after visiting these restaurants, we recommend you to watch the first episode of Ugly Delicious where step by step they explain everything you need to know about this famous dish.

Which of these three restaurants will you visit soon?
