Johnny Di Francesco started making pizzas when he was 12 and opened his first pizza shop in Melbourne at the ripe old age of 18.
Any good pizzaiolo knows that a quality pizza starts with the dough. It’s a thoughtful, evolving and time-consuming process. Di Francesco realised this and decided to go back to the basics, taking a course with the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, a Naples-based international association of which he has since become the Australasian principal. Later, he opened 400 Gradi and then was crowned number one at the 2014 World Pizza Championships in Parma, Italy.
Now he's bringing his famous margherita and more to Adelaide.
