Witnessing pizza emerge from an oven that was painstakingly built as the oven at Varuni Napoli is akin to witnessing a great artist sling paint onto a canvas or a wall. You've long surpassed the realm of just dough, sauce, and cheese -- You've stepped into the realm of real pizza.
Luca Varuni built Varuni Napoli on the foundation of his culinary youth spent in southern Italy. Whether its an individual ingredient or a fully-executed pizza, you will leave with an appreciation for how Luca and his team build flavor around this menu daily.
I caught up with Luca on a Sunday afternoon and left wanting to hear his story five more times -- over a pizza, and another, and another.... I hope you enjoy our conversation.
Also, make your plans now for a weekend brunch as the team just rolled out a killer brunch menu.
Recorded at my trusty table on the patio of Krog Street Market during a bustling Sunday afternoon
