We are incredibly excited to share that we have been named as the UK'S 1st Certified Pizzeria on the road by the The Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (AVPN).
The Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) is an international organisation officially established in 1984 by a group of Neapolitan people representing some of the oldest families of pizza makers, seeking to cultivate the culinary art of making Neapolitan pizza. The association was officially established by the Italian government as a denomination of control (DOC), a designation that made AVPN a legal entity able to give special designation to pizzerias meeting strict requirements that respect the tradition of the art of Neapolitan pizza making.
AVPN accreditation is a challenging and long journey for a pizza maker. The organisation’s Neapolitan method of making pizza has been certified by UNESCO as “Intangible Cultural Heritage”. Pizzerias face a series of theoretical and practical assessments and inspections whilst making traditional Neapolitan pizza in order to become certified and must follow the strict international regulations.
We couldn't be prouder of this certification and what it represents. This is a significant milestone for our pizzeria and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers and suppliers for such overwhelming support.
