Pizzeria Violetta in Kenmore Serves Authentic DOC Napoli Pizza

If you’re looking for authentic, D.O.C. Napoli-style pizza in Kenmore, one restaurant name always seems to come up. Pizzeria Violetta on Wongabel Street is proud of its reputation as a D.O.C. Napoli pizza establishment, and it has made efforts to maintain this reputation over the years.

The first thing you’ll notice when you step inside Pizzeria Violetta is this big, white tiled oven marked with the words “D.O.C. Napoli” on the front. The restaurant has an open kitchen so diners may actually watch how their orders are prepared.

Now, this custom-built wood-fired oven is what makes every pizza order taste just like the ones served in Naples, Italy.  

D.O.C. means “Denominazione di Origine Controllata” and it’s the highest standard for defining the authenticity of Italian food or wine. A D.O.C. Napoli seal of approval means that the pizza prepared in this restaurant passed the strictest Neopolitan standard.

With this wood-fired oven, Pizzeria Violetta can ensure that the temperature stays at 204°C (400°F) to allow for the pizza to cook in 90 seconds. However, it’s not just the specially-designed oven that brings authenticity to the dishes as Pizzeria Violetta also makes use of the best ingredients imported from Italy.
