The wall menu at the great Naples pizzeria-friggitoria Di Matteo saves the best for last: The 27th of 27 listed selections is pizza fritta ripieno, a Neapolitan street food classic.
The puffy golden saucer of “stuffed fried pizza” is traditionally filled with provola and ricotta cheeses, pork (cicoli or salume) and a little tomato sauce.
In Naples a friggitoria is a purveyor of fried foods and snacks. A classic pizzeria e friggitoria such as Di Matteo merges the arts of baking and frying.
Di Matteo was the third stop on my one-day Neapolitan pizza crawl. You can see highlights of that day in my video: 8 Naples Pizzerias in 1 Day & 2 Minutes
