PODCAST- Dish on the Dish - Luca Varuni's margherita pizza
Eric Cash/CL FileThe simplicity of a margherita pizza demands the highest quality ingredients and that's where Varuni Napoli excels. Per owner Luca Varuni's exacting Italian hand, the Neapolitan pizzeria's version of this classic pie features dough made from imported doppio zero flour and filtered water. Stacked with fresh mozzarella, fragrant basil and locally sourced sweet tomatoes, it's cooked in a custom-tiled Stefano Ferrara oven and served with love.
On episode number four of "Dish on the Dish", a podcast spinning off from our biannual 100 Dishes issue, we'll hear from Varuni himself (and his oh-so-charming Italian accent) about the classic pizza pie, available at Varuni Napoli in Morningside as well as his new kiosk at Krog Street Market.
