Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria is Albuquerque’s first and only certifiably authentic, hand-crafted, wood-fired Neapolitan pizza. Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria is owned and operated by Gabriel and Kimberly Amador. It’s a family restaurant that is certifiably, authentic Neapolitan — the only hand-made, hand-stretched, Neapolitan pizzeria in the state.
“The idea was born of a chance meeting in 1999, between a Navy girl from Kansas and a guy from Seattle at a party on Pinetamare Beach in Naples, Italy,” Gabriel explains. “As we fell in love, married, and started our family, Kimberly and I realized the romance and passion of Naples had to play a part in our dream of building something together as a family.” Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria is a combination of many things we love: a hand-made, healthier style of pizza, Naples, family and our pride in all things local.”
The Amadors are trained, certiﬁed and mentored by Roberto Caporuscio, Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani President. APN certiﬁcation is the highest certiﬁcation for pizza chefs in Italy, and is only obtained in Naples, Italy or New York City. Gabriel and Kimberly traveled to NYC to work and train with the star chef at both of his establishments:Keste Pizza & Vino, and Don Antonio by Starita, respectively rated number 1 and 2 best NYC pizzerias byZagats.
