More on the Neapolitan Pizza debate

An article appearing in The Telegraph has sparked the interest of the boys at Slice a few days after my original post regarding the issue.  The debate is an interesting one as the pizzerias throughout Naples aren’t even entirely sure about what is considered an authentic Neapolitan pizza as some believe that the size regulations are irrelevant, while some feel that bufala mozzarela isn’t the best cheese to use, which has sparked a debate over the legitimacy of the VPN.  Will people flock to only VPN approved pizzerias from now on?  Most likely not and going to an unapproved pizzeria will most definitely not spoil your experience, so the EU ruling essentially has protected a single perspective on what is considered to be an authentic Neapolitan pizza.  Below is a video that foolishpoolish linked in the comments section of the Slice article, which discusses at greater lengths the debate about authentic Neapolitan pizza.
