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, Giada’s favorite spicy Calabrian chile paste for a dash of heat, and fragrant Sicilian oregano picked right off the stem. This kit is beautifully wrapped, making it the perfect gift for the pizza lover in your life.
This box contains:
Pizza and Focaccia Flour: Stone-milled in a complex process that combines old-fashioned integrity with modern precision, this hearty wheat flour is best for yeast-raised doughs like pizza, focaccia, and ciabatta, with just enough protein to ensure an elastic stretch that will rise beautifully and won’t deflate in the oven. The Quaglia family has been dedicated to flour in all its forms since 1914 when Giuseppe Quaglia built his first mill on the river Adige.
Organic Tomato Passata: When you’re desperate for the sweet, summery flavor of a ripe tomato but they’re just not in season, reach for this passata. Its highly prized, silky-smooth, luscious texture is an uncanny match for grated raw tomato. It’s more elegant than your typical canned tomato puree and will perk up even the darkest days of winter.
Dried Oregano: Oregano is a versatile, fragrant herb that is a true staple of Italian cuisine. It’s indispensable in sauces, vinaigrettes, marinades—you name it. This organic oregano is grown on a small family farm in Sicily and dried right on the branch, so there's no doubt about what you're getting.
Calabrian Chile Paste: The quintessential Italian pepper, Calabrian chiles are beloved around the country for the lively, flavorful heat they bring to any dish. This paste of fresh chiles crushed and preserved in olive oil is a must-have for any spice lover’s pantry.
Organic Ogliarola Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Graceful and golden, this organic Ogliarola olive oil from Bio Orto is a love letter to Gargano, a highland sub-region of Puglia where it is made. Mild and fruity, with a velvety softness and just a touch of spicy and bitter notes held in perfect harmony, it’s a mellow stunner that will make a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal. This oil is made only using Ogliarola olives, a variety also known as Paesana, which is a Pugliese favorite. It is a bit of a chameleon and expresses the terroir of each region where it is grown, developing vastly different flavors depending on its surroundings.
