Why Londoners Love Authentic Italian Pizza

London is a city that loves its food!

And when it comes to pizza, traditional Neapolitan pizza is a real favourite.

Lots of restaurants serve slices of authentic Italian heritage, but one that really stands out is Cinquecento Pizzeria. We think we serve the best pizza in London, and there are plenty of reasons why!

Our secret? A treasured dough recipe handed down from Nonna.

But what makes Londoners fall in love with authentic Italian pizza?

Let’s dive into the reasons behind this love affair!

Authentic Ingredients: A Taste of Italy

Londoners love authentic Italian pizza because it offers a true taste of Italy, thanks to high-quality ingredients. Authentic Italian pizza relies on ingredients that meet strict regulations, such as the Denomination of Protected Origin (DOP).

This means that key components like San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella are certified and genuine.

At Cinquecento, we go the extra mile by sourcing our ingredients directly from Italy. This dedication guarantees that each pizza brims with the freshness and rich flavours that only authentic Italian ingredients can provide.

Londoners appreciate this commitment to quality, knowing that every bite is a faithful representation of Italian culinary tradition.

Traditional Pizza-Making Techniques: Crafting Perfection

Londoners love Neapolitan pizza for many reasons, but one of the things that really gets them excited is the traditional methods used in its creation.

They love the craftsmanship and authenticity of these techniques.

At Cinquecento, we use wood-fired ovens, which give our pizzas a unique smokey flavour and creates the perfect crust that is crisp yet chewy. This method is difficult to replicate with modern ovens, which adds to the allure of our pizzas.

Our dough is made from 00 flour and allowed to rest for up to 48 hours, which gives it a fluffy and airy texture.

This careful preparation results in a dough that is both light and flavourful, which Londoners have come to love. The combination of traditional techniques and high-quality ingredients results in a pizza that stands out for its authenticity and taste.
