Taste a true Neapolitan experience with your family and friends at Piatto Pizzeria.
Their passion is a true Neapolitan Experience, and in our world, authenticity is big. Their pizzaiolo use ingredients and procedures regulated by the Italian governing association (VPN)—so you experience a “true” pizza like you would find in the energetic pizzerias in Naples, Italy (but without the airfare).
THE VPN EXPERIENCE
Our Process + Certification
Piatto’s pizzaiolo have been carefully trained and are accomplished at making authentic Neapolitan pizzas. We use ingredients and procedures instituted by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN), a special Italian governing association, with a mandate to preserve the traditional methods of “true” Neapolitan pizza-making. Piatto was the first pizzeria in Atlantic Canada to receive the prestigious VPN certification. Here’s how it works:
It all starts with Tipo 00 flour (extremely low in gluten). Its fine, silky-smooth texture is key to the indescribable lightness of the Neapolitan crust. The only other ingredients are fresh yeast and sea salt. Once proofed, our dough is hand-stretched on marble countertops (no machines; no rollers), just as it has been in Naples for over 200 years.
San Marzano tomatoes (bright and naturally sweet) originate in the volcanic soils of Mount Vesuvius and must be used in “true” Neapolitan pizza. We add fresh, hand-sliced Fior di Latte mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil, creating a delicious flavour and intoxicating aroma. After 90 seconds in a 900°F wood-fired oven, the cornicione (crust) displays its distinctive black blisters, and signals it’s ready to serve.
