In the heart of Naples, the Condurro family began what would become a long history of great pizza producers in 1870. Michele Condurro, Salvatore's son, mastered the family art of pizza making, which he acquired from the legendary Torre Annunziata masters who were professionals in the preparation and kneading of pizza dough, as well as the cooking of pizza.
