Buona Forchetta South Park

About Us

Buona Forchetta started in 2011 as a craving of Matteo’s to bring some of his native Italy to our adopted home of South Park. We found the perfect corner and built the perfect oven. Since then, we’ve strived to deliver an exceptional and authentic Italian experience to our customers keeping our focus on the simple recipes that Matteo grew up on. We owe a huge “grazie” to our neighbors who have joined us on this awesome journey, and we hope that you will continue to be part of our story.

 

Our Star Oven

Our golden baby, Sofia, was made by the maestro Stefano Ferrara.All Stefano Ferrara ovens are made by hand using materials that are capable of withstanding the high temperatures typical of Neapolitan pizza-making, which is anywhere from 700 to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The crown and dome of his ovens are made with hand-pressed bricks, while the floor of the oven is formed out of Biscotto di Sorrento clay from Italy’s Sorrento region; these specifications ensure the uniformly retained heat so important for baking Neapolitan pizza.

A napoletana pizza is made with a soft dough and takes about two minutes to cook in a wood fire burning oven. because of this, pizza napoletana has several distinctive characteristics. pizza in napoli is soft and foldable and can be considered “wet” by american standards. for this reason, the people in napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and a fork. blackened char spots on the pizza crust is a tell-tale sign of pizza napoletana that has been cooked in a blistering hot, wood burning oven. each pizza is different and is an individual work of art, passion and dedication.
