That is until you stumble upon Doppio Zero.
Why should I visit Doppio Zero?
If you’re looking for pizza bay area, look no further than Doppio Zero.

How is Neapolitan Pizza Made?
There are certain specifications that must be met for a Neapolitan Pizza to be considered authentic - both in regards to the ingredients and the method of cooking. For example, the pizza base must be made from 00 Flour, to create the perfect, thin, and airy crust that has become synonymous with Neapolitan pizza worldwide. At Doppio Zero, this flour is imported directly from Italy to the bay area kitchen.
Neapolitan Pizzas must also be cooked in a wood-fired oven for between 60-90 seconds. This means that the oven must also be at a high temperature, allowing the cheese to melt in such a short time. However, it's also important that the crust does not burn or overheat. Not only are all of the Pizzas at Doppio Zero cooked in a wood-fired Pizza oven, but they’re also prepared by highly-trained Italian Chefs which means that your taste buds are in for a treat!
Once cooked, Neapolitan Pizzas must also be topped with fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil which must be applied in a spiral motion over the top of the pizza. Both ingredients are included to add an extra touch of flavor to the Pizza.
