Going on a Pizza Tour, Any suggestions?

Hi, in a month I will be on the Almafi Coast with a friend for two weeks. I want to sample pizzas in different towns this time, anyone know of good pizza places? Some small or family owned ones would be nice. Thanks.

Naples has the best pizzas in the world, we went to the oldest pizza place and it was very good, but I have forgotten the name. Maybe someone else knows.

You will find many good places for pizza in Naples but that is away from the Amalfi coast. In general stick to the places where the locals go. One place I could mention is "pizza margherita" in salerno (this restaurant has a place in Naples as well at riviera di chiaia).

Anna di Palazzo.<BR>They claim to have invented the pizza Margherita.<BR><BR>See also http://www.thefoodmaven.com/guide/naples_pizza.html

You don't &quot;throw&quot; pizza dough. That is why pizza in Napoli is so good--they spread the dough by hand. In the U.S., we use bread dough to make pizza, which is thicker, and is thrown up in the air. The secret to any great pizza, however, is a stone oven heated by a wood fire.

Naples has the best pizza. If you're in the area, try Leon d'Oro, address: Piazza Dante 48. A whole pizza margherita was only about 4 euros.
