'Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana'

We have been an accredited member of the AVPN since 2015.
The art of Neapolitan pizza making gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 2017,
Aperitivo is very proud to be the ONLY restaurant in Leichhardt to be certified by the AVPN (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana). As a member, we must abide by specific rules when creating an authentic Neapolitan pizza.

The dough must be worked by hand, and cooked directly on the surface of our traditional domed Neapolitan pizza oven, fuelled by wood. Only soft-grain flour, fresh yeast, water, and sea salt may be used for the dough, and only Italian plum tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, extra-virgin olive oil and fresh basil or dried oregano may be used for the toppings.
