Following is a transcript of the video.

Caroline: LA isn’t always well-known for its pizza, however it is about to be.

Sydney: This is so accurate.
Caroline: This is so true.

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele. L’Antica? L’Antica?

Sydney: L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele.

Caroline: Sydney, we are in Hollywood today! And there’s an automobile. So.

Sydney: We’re inside the coronary heart of Hollywood…

Caroline: Because the best pizzeria, one of the pleasant inside the world, is commencing up right here in Los Angeles. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele!

Sydney: You did it. You did it. I’ve found multiple spots that I like in LA for pizza. But as a long way as Neapolitan-style, I don’t know. I suggest, there are true spots, but I’m excited to attempt something, like, from the source, from the motherland.

Caroline: Michele Condurro opened L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele in Naples in 1870. The Condurro Family handiest provided pizza options at the menu: Margherita and marinara. After five generations, this legendary Naples group has stored its menu equal.

It’s claimed to be one of the first-rates in Naples and was additionally featured in “Eat Pray Love” starring Julia Roberts.

I’m in love. I’m having a courting with my pizza.

Michele: They used to keep the pizza within a unique way, so the pizza that they made a hundred and fifty years ago. So the manner that they stretch the pizza, the way that they cook dinner the pizza, it is the same. So you need to be very, very, very careful of the manner so that you need to touch the dough a certain manner. You have to circulate the dough in a certain way. I went there, and I labored there in Naples. And I said, “OK, I know a way to make pizza. It’s no longer a big mystery.” After a few minutes, I found out, “Oh, something is inaccurate right here. What’s, what’s occurring?” It’s extraordinary, you know, and after that, I begin step by step to discover ways to make the pizza in their manner.

We are uploading all of the elements from Italy. So mozzarella came from Italy, and it’s miles the same that they use in Naples. Even the tomatoes came from Italy from Naples. The same logo, the whole thing is the identical: the flour, the entirety.

Francesco: Any pizza that Michele makes and all our other pizzaiolo in our different places have a template on how those pizzas are coming. It’s no longer a bit of apple you find in a grocery store all vivid and exquisite. Maybe you get a squared one. Maybe you purchased an elongated one. It’s just how the pizza wants to pop out with the way he’s stretching it.

Caroline: If I may want to describe the odor if the odor could translate via the digital camera.

Sydney: That’s why you need to take a photo for Instagram, Caroline. OK.

Like, what are you doing? Have I taught you not anything?

Caroline: You can send it to me.

Sydney: There’s greater sauce than I idea there would be. There’s greater cheese than I notion there could be.

Caroline: It’s a lot oilier than I concept it would be. Did I say that proper, “oilier”?

Sydney: So are you a basil-slice man or woman or no basil?
Caroline: Yeah, I love basil. I love the entirety on this.

Sydney: I’ve seen online which you devour Neapolitan-fashion pizza like this ‘reason it’s like kinda moist so that you want to, like, turn that, you need to turn it internal like that, and you may kinda do that New York-style thing. Yeah.
Caroline: Oh.
Sydney: Kinda like helps it live together a little bit so you can without a doubt use one hand. OK.
We do not curse on this display, however, I don’t know what else to say other than holy s—, that is so right.

Caroline: This is so accurate.
Sydney: What I love the most is just like the char you get from the actual wood-burning oven. Like, the bottom of that crust you taste, you flavor all of the pizzas which have come before it. Do you realize? This pizza is sensitive. It’s mild. It is certainly one of the high-quality I suppose I’ve ever had.

Caroline: Mhm.
Sydney: You ate that in like 30 seconds.
Caroline: Yeah.
Sydney: I mean, it’s well worth doing.

Caroline: I don’t know how they found a way to kinda work with LA’s, I guess, environment, but this dough may be very ethereal, and it kinda similar to, you don’t must chew as a good deal. You should not put as much effort into devouring this thing.
Sydney: Well, because they, they use just a tiny bit of yeast and that they allow the dough to sit down in a single day. I assume that, like, loss of managing it’s miles what makes it so delicate and mild and airy and delicious. I suppose, like, when you overwork something, that’s when the dough will become honestly difficult. When the alternatives it up, it’s like a touch baby seal. It’s like a bit floppy toddler seal. You just, like, “bloop,” and it is all “bloop.”
