Who knew there was a pizza certification comparable to the Michelin star? Well, there is! It’s a designation awarded by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) and there is only two restaurants in Lisbon recognized with this distinction…Mercantina in the Centro Comercial de Alvalade and Mercantina in Chiado.

Mercantina is Neapolitan through-and-through. First, it uses only Italian products such as San Marzano tomatoes, Italian flour, Italian cheese (mozzarella, ricotta, gorgonzola, pecorino and parmigiano) and Italian meats (prosciutto di parma, bresaola, mortadella, spicy Napoli salami, coppa ). Secondly, they imported a Stefano Ferrara pizza oven from Naples. It was so large and heavy, the streets of Lisbon had to be closed in order to transport and deliver the oven.
