Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana is one of only a few pizzerias in Arizona that hold the distinction of recognition as Verace Pizza Napoletana (true Neapolitan pizza), accredited by the institution back in the city of Napoli and the region known as Campania. As history has displayed, pizza as we know it today in America comes from Naples, the birthplace of the original margherita pizza. Though it is not often possible to visit Campania and the Parthenopean city, if you are staying at one of the magnificent properties from Scottsdale Rentals, Pomo Pizzeria is only minutes outside of your doorstep.
True Pizza at Pomo Pizzeria in Scottsdale
The proprietors and restauranteurs at Pomo hail from Campania, and in fact, they even imported the actual wood-fire ovens from the old country to use here in the desert! As mentioned above, the simple, yet flavorful Margherita Pizza features red sauce (made with San Marzano tomatoes of course), then topped with real mozzarella cheese and basil. The Bufalà Verace is the same as the Margherita; however, this one uses real Bufalà di Mozzarella cheese. The Toto Sapore uses prosciutto, arugula, shaved parmesan and mozzarella; it comes highly recommended for those who love this particular Italian cold cut. The classic sausage and mushroom, or the Ortolana made with bell pepper, zucchini and eggplant, will satisfy both meat-eaters and vegetarians. The list goes on and on. Everyone at the table when you’re at Pomo Pizzeria will stay happy with the amount of authentic variety. Moreover, for something different, try the Pizza Romana; this square pizza uses a denser dough, however, you can top it with almost anything you wish.
Pasta & More
Of course, an Italian eatery would not be complete without a few dishes dedicated to pasta. At Pomo Pizzeria in Scottsdale, the handmade pasta comes in all types of shapes and colors, yet the flavors and sauces reflect the traditions from the old country. The Gnocchi Sorrentina features soft potato gnocchi, marinara sauce, mozzarella and basil, while the Lasagna al Forno offers an authentic Bolognese sauce, béchamel and parmesan cheese. For something not often seen on Italian menus, the Gramigna Boscaiola blends a creamy sausage sauce alongside cremini mushrooms and parmesan cheese into a wonderful masterpiece.
