Wood-Fired Pizza at Via Napoli

Orlando: Italy Pavilion, Epcot

Opened in the summer of 2010, this pizzeria and gelateria serves blood-orange-juice coolers, fried arancini (rice balls), and pizzas pulled from giant wood-burning ovens designed in Naples. The mozzarella is flown in from Italy (as are, often, the servers), and the pies are made in strict adherence to Neapolitan pizza rules, with San Marzano tomatoes and a crisp, charred crust.
