guide to the best pizzerias in the world

“Our pizzas possess a delicate quality, featuring a thin, expertly-crafted crust prepared in either a gourmet or classic fashion. They are not only flavorful but, most crucially, exude an unmistakable Neapolitan authenticity. Attempting to enumerate the merits of what undoubtedly ranks as one of Vienna’s finest pizza offerings may be a challenging task. Despite the possibly misleading name, our location isn’t nestled between Piazza Dante and Piazza Plebiscito; rather, we are situated in the very heart of Vienna.

Stepping into Francesco Calò’s pizzeria embarks you on a gastronomic voyage that commences with the montanara topped with tomato sauce, basil, and pecorino cheese, and culminates with pasteria  napoletana and sfogliatella, two iconic symbols of Naples.

Our menu showcases a wide array of both classic and gourmet pizzas, all prepared with long-fermented dough and a high hydration ratio. On the beverage front, the art of pairing pizza with wine stands out as a distinguishing feature of this establishment. Each item on our menu is thoughtfully paired with wine, adhering strictly to DOC, DOP, DOCG, or IGT classifications. Our staff, fluent in both German and Italian, wholeheartedly dedicate themselves to providing a superb dining experience from the moment you walk in until you leave. This dedication is especially evident on weekends, when, due to expected wait times, we offer Prosecco to help you pass the time.”

6th national championship pizza doc

The 6th DOC Pizza World Championship, held from 11 to 12 November 2019 in Nocera Inferiore in the province of Salerno, Italy, recently came to an end. The young Italian Francesco Calò won the desirable prize “Pizza Doc in the World-Miglior Pizzaiolo Italiano nel Mondo” (“DOC Pizza in the World – Best Italian Pizza Chef in the World”).The competition lasted for two days and among more than 360 participants from all over the world, Francesco Calò prevailed in 3 competition categories: A fantastic competition for the Neapolitan pizza – the best thing about it is that there is a hidden jury, which guarantees transparency and credibility, because the jurors only get to know the pizza producers after they have judged the pizza, i.e. during the prize-giving ceremony. This means that the judgement referred only to the pizza and not to the pizza chef. When the tasks were completed, the talented Francesco Calò was awarded the prestigious prize “Pizza Doc in the World – Il Miglior Pizzaiolo Italiano nel Mondo”. Francesco Calò founder and MD of “Enopizzeria Via Toledo” in Vienna, in the heart of the eighth district.
About eight years ago he was seized by a passion for the Neapolitan pizza and since then all his efforts and aspirations have been directed towards perfecting his technique: what he offers is a pizza that is rooted in the Neapolitan tradition, but with moderation and purpose, a pizza that takes into account the fresh wind of change. The use of the best raw materials and its dough with a very high moisture content give its pizza an unprecedented lightness and digestibility. The knowledge that Francesco, the southern Italian, is now the ambassador of the DOC pizza in the world, and that he is an excellent representative of Italian culinary culture, makes us proud. Not only the numerous satisfied guests say this, but also the facts: he and his team have already won many awards. We consider ourselves lucky, because the Enopizzeria Via Toledo is really a piece of Naples in the heart of Vienna, and now we are prouder than ever to have the world champion in our city: DOC Pizza Champion in the World! Chapeau, Francesco!
