Why VPN Certification Matters

Why VPN Certification Matters

For those of you that have had Neapolitan pizza, you know that there is nothing quite like it. From the thin crust to the savory sauce, Racca’s Pizzeria Naploetana takes pride in being the only VPN certified pizzeria in Colorado. What does this mean exactly? It means that every pizza we serve meets strict requirements that respect the traditional art of Neapolitan pizza making from its preparation to its ingredients and wood-fired cooking technique. With only 85 VPN certified restaurants in the country, Racca’s is truly an authentic pizzeria that values tradition and quality.

But what makes Neapolitan pizza different? Started in Naples, Italy, it has been a distinguished and respected product for more than 300 years. The unique style begins with the dough and its ingredients - a high protein wheat flour and natural yeast, mixed with salt and water. Next comes the methodology. The dough must be kneaded and shaped by hand to the proper thickness. Over kneading the dough or not allowing it to rise properly will affect the thickness. The stone oven is the final component, where the dough must be baked for 60–90 seconds at 905 °F for that soft, tender crust.  

This is then topped with shredded Flor di Latte, our Italian San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh basil and other savory toppings that create that perfect rich flavor. While the toppings are hearty, the thin crust is light so there is always room for another slice. Stop by and try the Neapolitan style that has been a one of the hottest pizza trends in the country.

Expanding A Dream

Expanding A Dream

Spring is a time for new beginnings and though it may still snow in June here in Colorado, Racca’s is celebrating the season with the opening of our third location. We are thrilled to share our story with the Lakewood community and honored that our Denver roots have helped make Racca’s a known and loved destination for date night, friends’ get-togethers and family gatherings. Since the beginning, our dreams have been inspired by that first taste of true Napoletana pizza, made the same way for centuries with authentic Italian ingredients. Now, as we move into Colorado Mills Mall, it brings a smile to our faces to watch a whole new crowd of friends and family experience Pizza Fired by Passion for the first time.

Racca’s has always been the product of passion and the hard work and strategy that it inspires. Training under the best pizzaiolos in the industry, Racca’s founder and owner, Mark Dym, pursued his dream and opened his first restaurant, Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizza, in 2008 in Denver’s Ballpark neighborhood. Word spread quickly about all of our delicious dishes, drinks and desserts, so we opened a second location in Inverness three years later. From there, time really flew. We’ve added a few awards, accolades, and titles to the trophy case; a new name; and now our newest adventure has been expanding into new neighborhoods waiting for a taste of what Racca’s has to offer.

Our Colorado Mills location will serve house favorites in the same charming Italian atmosphere that we’re known for. Colorful and welcoming, it’s the perfect place to try our zesty limoncello chicken wings and catch the next big game. For those of you with a sweet tooth, our Nutella dessert pizza is a classic. Don’t miss our various gluten-free items that are some of our best sellers. With warmer weather comes the chance to enjoy a happy hour drink on our new patio. Take in the al fresco experience of Italian favorites in the fresh Colorado air and see for yourself how our passion has spread!
