Quality products, a crispy and soft dough and passion: this is the secret of the pizza chef at Pizza è Bella.
Here is a recognition that will interest many of us! The Italian site 50toppizza has just released the ranking of the 50 best pizzerias in Europe as it does every year. We’re talking about Neapolitan pizza here.
And in 5th place, there is a Belgian restaurant! This is Pizza è Bella, located Place du Sablon, with its cute little terrace just in front of the bus stop! This small-sized pizzeria, which is often very crowded with eaters, was ranked 24th last year, a nice comeback!
The jury’s criteria take into account the cooking of the pizza dough, the crispness of the crust and the freshness of the ingredients.
This is what the 50toppizza jury said: “A complete and coherent expression of the Neapolitan style can be found in the center of Brussels. This is, in short, the experience you can expect in this well established restaurant where traditional Neapolitan dishes, especially those based on seafood, are accompanied by well made and well risen pizzas, baked in a wood oven. From classic pizzas to more personalized and gourmet ones, you can feel the Neapolitan influence. The same goes for the service, which is attentive, professional but also cheerful and informal. It is also possible to eat outdoors. There is a good selection of beers, including Italian craft beers, and Italian labels. However, very few brands originate from the Campania region. “
Neapolitan pizza is distinguished by its light and soft dough. ” All the products found on our pizzas come from small producers in Campania, Italy.“, Stefano Napoli, owner of the premises, explained to SoSoir. Fresh mozzarella with buffalo milk, tomatoes from Vesuvius or even use of Culatello di Zibello, an Italian charcuterie from the Province of Parma at 150 € per kilo, make these pizzas true concentrates of taste.
Note that the place will double its capacity in a few weeks. And then open in Louvain and Antwerp.
