Pizzerie Top 2020
2° - Pepe in Grani
Going to Pepe in Grani is an experience that is something more than just a simple evening in a pizzeria. You get to the town of Caiazzo, park not far from the center, walk towards the picturesque old town, following the signs that will lead you to Franco Pepe’s pizzeria. These are the conditions to get to experience Pepe’s gastronomic journey; you must book well in advance, and perhaps strategically choose days and times to avoid long waits.
The “coni” (cones) that open the menu are an explosion of flavors. Wisely paired, they consist of filled fried pizza cones that are light and soft.
The pizzas are divided into: classic, original, seasonal, and the ones from the garden. Starting from the Neapolitan pizza, Franco Pepe has outlined a completely personal style that has made him famous worldwide. The dough, as well as the combinations, make it a perfectly balanced pizza using only simple ingredients.
For the choice of desserts, not to miss is the new entry “Pastiera fritta”: a fried cone with custard, fiordilatte, candied fruit, hazelnuts, cinnamon, and orange; complete with an inscription dedicated to the friend master pastry chef Alfonso Pepe. Among the post-quarantine options, there is also the possibility of booking one of the three tables, arranged in the quiet garden in an area dedicated to the great composer Ezio Bosso.
Impeccable dining room service and fully enforced anti-covid procedures.
