The Perfect Pizze

Call it the Napoli

Ask for salty anchovies

Aged pepperoni

Smoky  mozz

Sweet tangy tomato sauce

fresh basil leaves

combined

and place in a

Untreated oak and Birch wood

one thousand degrees of fire

oven

baked

baked for seconds

sixty

but no more

and eat

drenched in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius

but only in Naples

where they call it the Romana.
