It’s just a logical step forward for the artisan who has raised pizza making on another level.
Franco Pepe is a legend. Some people even say he’s the best pizza-maker worldwide. Maybe he is. Pizza of this great pizzaiolo, who was born into a family where pizza is made since three generations, is delicious and unique, his ethics is highest you can imagine. He is still doing his dough completely manually, with slow raising for at least 12 hours, without using any technology or electrical energy. His work doesn’t follow strict rules but tradition and intuition, with great attention to the selection and combination of flours, to the humidity level of the day, the temperatures, …
The new restaurant/pizzeria, which is beautifully situated in the old part of Caiazzo in a 17. century building, will offer 92 places and a wonderful terrace with view which can be reserved in advance. Beside pizza there will be on menu also some traditional regional dishes. Also selection of wines and beer will be rich of regional specialities.
Special part of the building will be dedicated to a laboratory where he plans to organise courses in which he will passionately share his rich knowledge and techniques with chefs and pizzamakers from all around the world.
Wonderful new challenges for Franco, his wife Rita and children Stefano and Francesca. I wish them all everything best and can’t wait to enjoy again their excellent pizza. After you try it, you’re enchanted, so don’t miss this wonderful experience!
