Pizza Beppe is the first restaurant in the Netherlands to be accepted by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. It means our pizzas are prepared the authentic Neapolitan way. Great authentic food served in an easy-going atmosphere? That’s amore!
Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, or AVPN for short, is a non-profit organization that promotes and protects the traditional Neapolitan pizza. Founded in Naples, Italy in 1984, AVPN has become a global authority on what it means to make a true Neapolitan pizza.
To be certified by AVPN, pizzerias must adhere to strict guidelines for the preparation and cooking of Neapolitan pizza. These guidelines include using specific ingredients, such as San Marzano tomatoes, Fior di Latte or Buffalo Mozzarella cheese, and Caputo flour, as well as using a special oven at a specific temperature and for a specific length of time.
AVPN also promotes the cultural heritage of Neapolitan pizza, recognizing its importance as a symbol of Italian cuisine and culture. The organization holds events and competitions to showcase the best Neapolitan pizza makers and to promote the art and craft of pizza-making.
AVPN has helped to preserve and promote one of Italy's most iconic culinary treasures, and at Pizza Beppe we're proud to be recognised for making true Neapolitan pizzas.
Only the best is buono enough!
