Fuoco Pizzeria Napoletana

TRUE PIZZA NAPOLETANA<br /> <br /> OPEN FOR JUST LESS THAN A YEAR, FUOCO Pizzeria Napoletana in Fullerton is already drastically changing the way OC residents think about pizza.<br /> <br /> Seven days a week, from 11 a.m. until it runs out of dough, Fuoco serves authentic, thin-crust pizzas made with high-quality ingredients imported from Italy and prepared with methods true to those practiced in Naples for 200 years.<br /> <br /> For approximately 60 seconds, the pizzas are given a quick bake in the 1,000-degree wood-burning oven, in which each one is not only fully cooked, but also completely transformed. The crust is light, airy, luxuriously soft and chewy, but a slight char, creating a flavor profile that is unique and balanced.<br /> <br /> The Margherita is a clear standout for its simplicity and classic combination of tangy tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella and fragrant basil. Prosciutto, fresh figs, arugula, shaved parmigiano, ricotta, and truffle and olive oils are just a few of the toppings found throughout Fuoco’s pizza menu, which also features calzones and paninis.<br /> <br /> Dig in with a knife and fork or tear them apart with your hands to enjoy an authentic Italian experience right here in OC!<br /> <br /> 101 N.
