Grab A Slice At These Naples FL Pizza Restaurants

Naples vacation rentals may be the thing that draws in vacationers, but what keeps visitors coming back to the seaside Floridian city is an unexpected enterprise: pizza. Very, very good pizza. So while Naples beachfront rentals, golf courses, and dolphin sightings might appear to be the lure to this bustling town lining the Gulf of Mexico, the real star of the show is the thing for which its sister city in Italy is known. 

The pizza offered in Naples, Florida, is a subsidiary of flatbread dishes that originated in Naples, Italy, traditionally made with ingredients like milk from a water buffalo or tomatoes grown in the shadow of the infamous Mount Vesuvius. Though the pies offered in this Floridian paradise are made with more local – and reasonably attainable – ingredients, it still means that these pizzas are made with the freshest ingredients and with a true heart for food.

So grab a glass of vino, put on some comfy flip-flops, and get ready to read about the best pizza that Naples, Florida has to offer.

By putting things on a pizza that wouldn’t normally belong, like potato salad or black beans, Twisted Sheep pushes the boundaries of what it means to eat specialty, one-of-a-kind foods. As the restaurant founder says himself, “We’re not here to fit in, we’re here to stand out!” That attitude definitely makes Twisted Sheep one of the best Italian restaurants in Naples FL.
