Pizza maker Steve Speciale, who owns the Pizza Verace restaurant in Quebec City, offers authentic Neapolitan pizza in his establishment.
The latter is such an institution that it entered UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage on December 7, 2017.
The techniques for cooking it are taught in schools in Naples, but some apprentices can also learn this art in Neapolitan families.
“It’s a know-how that we want to protect and that we want to offer people through what we do,” explains the pizza maker.
Steve Speciale and his troupe are among the few in Canada to be recognized by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. He received his training in Italy.
Besides, all the ingredients in his restaurant, apart from the mushrooms, come from Italy.
His team consists of Luiggi Coronella, Pietro Davino, Riccardo Cassella and Giovanni Campisi. Together, they have over 60 years of experience making pizzas in the city of Naples.
