In Hiroshima, Zona Italia’s not the only Italian in town. And Pizza Riva is no young pretender, offering a great selection of traditional Napoli-style wood-fired pizza, with the oven itself imported from Naples. And that authenticity has not gone unnoticed. In July 2012, Pizza Riva’s chef Shuhei Ooka was awarded first prize at the debut international Pizza Napoletana Olympics held by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) in Naples. The standard range of pizzas can be found here, from fresh ingredients like buffalo mozzarella, artisan-cured salami and prosciutto to fresh basil and rucola. According to many, the pomodoro sauce is also without an equal.
