Michelin guide pizza by maestro Enzo Coccia
Maestro Enzo Coccia
Michelin Maestro Enzo Coccia, a “Pizzaiolo with an identity, a brain and a soul” brings his award winning pizza exclusively to Little Pyg in Dublin.
His authentic Neapolitan pizza is acknowledged as one of the best globally by outlets such as The New York Times, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal to name just a few.
His passion for creating authentic Neapolitan pizza began as he followed in his father’s footsteps in their family pizzeria. From his life long experience in pizza making, to undertaking a Masters degree, launching his own Pizza Consulting School, and opening an award winning restaurant, La Notizia, in Naples – he has excelled in the industry and is renowned for blending traditional Neapolitan techniques with fresh, innovative ingredients to create truly unique and flavour-rich pizzas.
Now, Little Pyg is delighted to bring “Maestro Enzo Coccia’s legendary Neapolitan pizzas to Dublin’s Powerscourt Townhouse Centre”. What makes our pizzas even more special? All our authentic Italian pizzas are bursting with flavour from fresh, high quality ingredients and unique recipes, but with at least 50% less calories than the standard Neapolitan style pizza.

About Our food
Here at Little Pyg, we are passionate about bringing people true authentic cuisine in a unique garden setting in Dublin’s Powerscourt Townhouse.
“300 years of Italian technique” go into our pizza making process and this is evident in the sumptuous authentic Neapolitan style pizzas, served by our specially trained chefs and Michelin Maestro Enzo Coccia.
Even better, each of our exceptionally crafted pizzas contain at least 50% less calories than a standard Neapolitan pizza, whilst being acknowledged as among the world’s best in terms of taste and authenticity.
Every step of our pizza making process is monitored to ensure only the best quality pizzas are served in a truly distinctive and lush garden setting.
From our “spectacular oven built on-site from scratch brick by brick”, and how we prepare this wood-fired oven for use, to the specific temperature the oven must maintain, the quality of the oil and toppings used, the traditional methods of checking the freshness of ingredients such as Mozzarella, the dough making and flipping process, as well as the very precise time each pizza must cook for (55 seconds each) and so much more, we ensure that each customer’s pizza earns its’ world class title.
