Vero Amore served the only pizza in Tucson made by following the strict guidelines set down by Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is the official arbiter of pizza made in the official Neapolitan way. This means the pie is baked in a wood oven (at a perfect 800 degrees), using 00 flour (finely ground), San Marzano plum tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella, basil, salt and yeast. The technique is also regulated: The dough is hand stretched using a marble slab. This is all supposed to result in a practically perfect pizza.
It’s all good! Add to the list of places. Lunchtime (13:00) on Thursday the place was basically empty. Split a pizza and the Prosciutto Caprese, add a glass of Karly “Pokerville” Zinfandel. I want to go back for dinner tonight!
