DeSano Pizza Bakery won the Eater Pizza Week 2014 ‘Best Pizza in Nashville’ title for its authentic Neapolitan pizza. DeSano uses only the freshest Italian ingredients to craft true artisan pizza.

After a three-round voting process, DeSano Pizza Bakery was crowned with the title of Eater Pizza Week 2014 'Best Pizza in Nashville.’

Eater Nashville is a division of Eater, a website that covers restaurants, bars and nightlife in major North American cities. More than 2,400 votes were cast in the final round, which narrowed down the competition from 18 Nashville pizzerias to the top five.

Known for its authentic Neapolitan pizza, DeSano Pizza Bakery was founded by Scott DeSano and has been a popular spot for locals and visitors alike since opening its doors in Nashville in 2012.

“We use only the finest ingredients and follow a strict preparation process,” said Scott DeSano, founder and owner. “It’s rewarding to be recognized for our dedication to crafting top-quality Neapolitan pizza.”

In order to make the best pizza in Nashville, DeSano’s has all-natural, fresh ingredients flown in weekly from Naples and Campania, Italy. The savory pizzas are baked in 10,000-pound, 900-degree ovens, which were imported from Italy and named after Italian saints. Another key to DeSano’s success is the use of family recipes that have been passed down and perfected through the generations.

Some of DeSano’s most mouth-watering menu items include:

  •     The Margherita pizza, made with Campania-grown San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, basil and garlic
  •     The Napoletana pizza, made with broccoli rabe, sausage and buffalo mozzarella
  •     The Marinara pizza, made with San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, oregano and Pecorino Romano
  •     The Vesuvio calzone, made with spicy salami, prosciutto, pepperoni and garlic
  •     A selection of hand-made cannoli and biscotti, plus imported gelato
  •     And more!

One of the restaurant’s most unique attributes is the time it takes to cook the Neapolitan pizza. Each pizza is fired for less than a minute because of the extremely high oven temperatures, making DeSano an excellent option for grabbing a bite on the go. Due to the pizzeria’s popularity, Scott DeSano opened a DeSano location in Charleston, S.C., in 2013, and recently opened a massive West Hollywood location in February.

“I think people love DeSano Pizza Bakery because, not only do we bring them the authentic taste of Italy, but we bring them the feeling of an Italian family, too.” said Scott DeSano. “We have communal tables and an open floor plan where you can see your pizza being made, so the atmosphere is perfect for a meal with family and friends.”
