  • Published on Jun 9, 2018

    I was going to claim my home made pizzas are the best in the world - then you had to go and do that ... so light and fluffy - very difficult ...
    I should not bring sawn wood and put in the broiler... ahhrghh .. upping the game in attempt to approach PIG - seems very expensive in many ways

    To make the perfect is not how you make it but the ingredients constructed to use it. The perfect mozzarella, the freshest tomatoes, the best wheat.

    Hello Alex, the more I watch you videos, the more I like your channel. You should consider a travel to Brazil. Take some time (a month is a short time to stay here, for example) but the food here would blow your mind. We have so many options, so many cultures and so many styles that you would need to live here for some time. Just consider. :D

    If you are interested in "broccoletto" here in Roccasecca Lazio you can find a very good D.O.P product!!!!! Actually I'm from Naples area and I can also say that for this pizza place you couldn't find better. The kind of research you use to make is wonderful and very interesting!!!!

    Most people think the local pizza they grew up with is the best in the world. I'm sure this place is very good, but so are other local, small pizzerias that use good, fresh ingredients with care.

    The best pizza is the one in the fridge when you’re starving at 2am. And drunk. And you’ve microwaved a couple slices. Some of those slices are scorching hot and a couple are freezing cold. And you think, “Yes! Best of both worlds!”

    This is certainly an impressive pizza! The first one with the two red stripes is my favorite. It looks delicious and pleasant to the eyes!
    I did a TVclip search on “best pizza in the world” and got many different results though. So it seems a lot of people think differently on the matter.

    Personally, the best chefs in the world do not work in regular restaurants. They constantly evolve and learn to do things better without a set recipe to hold them back.

    To answer your question, I'd say it's irrelevant to try to figure out whether they are the best pizzas in the world or not. It would mean that universal taste criteria exist, and we know it's not the case. So it looks like this is your best experience of a pizza, but wait a minute, this one pizza you shared with this girl you had a massive crush on (and who hopefully became your girlfriend later on) was also the best pizza in the world at this very moment!
    Let's remember cuisine is about tastes, people and experience. Let's try not to rank everything!
    Excellent video by the way

    Is this the best pizza in the world? I think that when food is created in a way that gives you Joy and also troubles you because the beauty of it is so overwhelming, the answer is very simple. I've never tasted that pizza, but of it makes you FEEL like that, it must be the best pizza in the world.
    Following you and cooking.

    I live between Neaples and Caiazzo and i tried numerous times both Neaples' best pizzas and Pepe in grani's.
    First of all what does it mean best pizza? For people like me, grown up with basically full access to top tier pizzas, the "best" pizza is quite difficult to define becouse of all the different falvours and species. For example a classic argument would be that a certain pizzeria has the best margherita, or the best pizza fritta.
    Of course those kind of arguments are very dependent on personal taste and preferences about cooking process, in fact there are a lot of people in Campania that like a more crispy pizza instead of a soft one.
    Said that, lightness of the dough and quality of the ingredients are clearly an objective factor .
    Therefore is difficult to say that Pepe In Grani has the best Pizza. But considering the quality of the products he uses, considering the lightness of his pizza, considering the colorful and surprising menu, that easely is the most rich and brilliant of many other menus from other pizzerias, i can say that Pepe in Grani could easely be the best Pizzeria.
