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 & Focaccia Flour: Stone-milled in a complex process that combines old-fashioned integrity with modern precision, Petra’s pizza and focaccia flour is best for—you guessed it!—raised doughs like pizza, focaccia, and ciabatta. From the fourth-generation millers at Molino Quaglia, it’s a perfectly calibrated flour that ensures an elastic dough that will rise beautifully and won't deflate in the oven.
Tomato Passata: When ripe tomatoes aren’t available (sadly, that’s most of the year!), this passata from Puglia’s Masseria Dauna is ready to step in. Passata is not your everyday tomato puree; it’s made with fresh tomatoes, instead of cooked, which gives it an elegant lightness of both flavor and texture. It’s as if you had freshly grated, peak-of-summer tomatoes at your fingertips all year round.
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.
