Neapolitan recipes

Naples can be a bit of an intimidating city to the average tourist. It’s an assault on the senses, packed with bustling crowds, scooters zipping around the streets at breakneck speeds and the constant background noise of car horns beeping away. But none of that stops throngs of visitors making the pilgrimage to this historic city every year – after all, this is the home of pizza we’re talking about.

Our collection of Neapolitan recipes proves that while Naples made its culinary name for pizza, there’s plenty more delicious dishes to get your teeth stuck into. If you’re after the perfect crust, check out master pizzaiolo Franco Pepe’s pizza dough recipe, then try and replicate some of his most famous creations (‘Tomato whim’ is a fantastic example). Fancy something more robust? Ragù Napoletano isn’t just a great sauce for pasta – the slow-cooked joints of meat are lifted out once cooked and served as a separate course after the primi. Lasagne di carnevale is perfect for special occasions and takes the beloved dish to new heights, while Pastiera Napoletana is a sweet cake baked for Easter celebrations across the whole of Italy.

If you can’t face the hustle and bustle of Naples itself, then these recipes give you a chance to bring a little bit of the city’s idiosyncratic charm into your own kitchen. And while it may take years of practice (and a very hot wood-fired oven) to get your pizza close to what the masters produce, there’s plenty more to taste from Campania’s capital city. Also, don't forget to take a look at our Campanese recipe collection for even more delicious dishes from the rest of the region.
