Owners Gabriel and Kimberly Amador met, fell in love, and married while living in the birthplace of pizza - Naples, Italy. After settling in Albuquerque, they wanted to bring their passion for Naples and “Vera Pizza” into their family owned and operated restaurant. Upon mentoring with Roberto Caporuscio (At NYC’s #1 and #2 Zagat rated pizzerias), and being certified by Italy’s Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani (APN), the Amadors opened Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria, which is New Mexico’s first and only certified Pizzeria.
“At Amore, we serve Pizza Napoletana, which is the traditional Italian style, hand made and fired for you to watch in our open kitchen. Our dough, made in house from 00 flour imported from Naples, is risen overnight, then hand stretched and fired in our traditional brick oven, which is also from Naples. Every food item on our menu, including our fresh mozzarella, bread, sauces, and vinaigrettes, is made in-house, using the best ingredients available, both locally and imported. We feature aged Italian meats, and local organic produce. Come experience New Mexico’s first and only certified Italian pizzeria, in West Downtown. Buon Appetito!” –Gabriel and Kim
