The perfect Neapolitan-style pizza is now within reach, no matter how far you are from Naples. This kit includes everything needed to make a show-stopping thin-crust pizza at home. The secret weapon? The pizza flour is high-protein wheat flour that gives any dough the right elastic stretch for that tantalizingly chewy, crackly crust. Top it off with olive oil, an amazing organic passata, and the Tuscan salt blend for a fragrant taste of the Italian south. This kit is beautifully wrapped, making it the perfect gift for the pizza lover in your life.
This box contains:
Pizza Flour: Make pizza night a success every time with this pizza flour - formulated especially for home pizza-making by a mill in the northern Lombardy region that supplies professional-grade flour to chefs and bakers across Italy. You’ll get restaurant-quality pizza with a soft, supple chew and satisfyingly crispy crust.
Organic Tomato Passata: With a sunny, fresh tomato flavor, this organic tomato passata from Bio Orto is your pantry’s new secret weapon. Hand-picked ripe tomatoes from Puglia, the “heel” of Italy’s boot, are peeled and strained to make this uncooked puree, which is packed in glass jars so no tinny aftertaste can ruin their fresh, vibrant flavor. Tomatoes thrive in the region’s deep southern heat (the region gets, on average, 2,500 hours of sun a year!), which is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. Their natural sugars are concentrated by those long hours in the sun, giving them a well-balanced flavor profile that sings with ripe sweetness and umami goodness.
Lievito Active Dry Yeast Tin: For never-fail rises every time you bake, this dry yeast from Mulino Caputo is the answer. For nearly 100 years, Mulino Caputo has been a trusted flour source for Neapolitan pizza makers and bakers across Italy. The secret is their yeast, which is specially formulated to perform well under any conditions. For short rises or long, this dry yeast consistently delivers results. It’s gluten-free and made using only natural ingredients, making it easier on the stomach than chemically derived yeast.
Tuscan Salt Blend: Created by world-famous Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini, this masterful salt blend is known as Profumo del Chianti (“the scent of Chianti”). Fragrant with sun-dried herbs, including sage, lavender, and rosemary, combined with crunchy sea salt, this blend smells like a walk through the Tuscan countryside, where these plants grow in wild abundance.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP: Every kitchen needs a versatile extra virgin olive oil, and this one from Fratepietro is a stunner. It’s made from a blend of bella di Cerignola and coratina olives grown in sunny Puglia on the Fratepietro family estate. It is well-balanced enough to use in everyday cooking but has a crisp flavor that shines as a finishing oil.
Italian Sunflower Honey: Sunny and warm, this sunflower honey from Brezzo is a versatile nectar that’s equally welcome in baking, breakfasts, and cheese plates. Harvested from the golden sunflowers that bloom in early summer in the central Italian region of Le Marche, this honey has notes of fresh hay, candied fruit, and dried apricots. It’s minimally processed to deliver nothing but pure honey flavor, with no artificial intervention or additives.
