Yet to visit Pupatella, The Maxwell? The signs in the window that read “PIZZA ADDICTS ONLY” and “EVERYTHING IN MODERATION…EXCEPT PIZZA” tell you just about everything you need to know about this cozy storefront pizzeria in the Bluemont section of Arlington.
This is definitely a place that has a sense of humor, but it sure does take pizza seriously. Enzo Algarme, the head pizza maker at Pupatella, was born and trained in Naples and is committed to the principles of making Neapolitan pizza. That means using imported buffalo mozzarella and San Marzano tomatoes, making fresh dough daily with simple and wholesome ingredients, and baking pies in an ultra-hot wood-fired oven for just a few minutes.
Yelp reviews call Pupatella one of the best places in the DC area to get an authentic traditional margherita pizza, so step up to the counter and order one of Enzo’s signature pizzas, or design your own combination of sauce, cheese, meat and vegetable toppings.
