CHILLI TOMATO PIZZA AND LOBSTER CALZONE
JAMES MARTIN: HOME COMFORTS, BBC2
To make pizza "properly and for real, in Italy they use San Marzano Tomatoes"
Coppola San Marzano Tomatoes were featured on BBC2, in James Martin: Home Comforts.
Coppola San Marzano Tomatoes of Agro Sarnese-Nocerino PDO are very sweet, plump and finely textured, with a subtle amount of acidity. These tomatoes are PDO (protected denomination of origin) variety and are grown and packed seasonally in Campania in an area between the provinces of Naples, Salerno and Avellino, which is known for its fertile volcanic soil, high water table and ideal Mediterranean microclimate.
Ernesto Coppola Sr. first started producing these San Marzano Tomatoes back in 1952, and it was with this product that he launched the Coppola cannery in Mercato San Severino.
These classic tomatoes still remain the perfect base for a tomato sauce, which makes them the top choice of the best Italian chefs, international chefs and pizza chefs.
