Danielle Haslip, a member of the training team, prepares dough for a pizza at Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, which is scheduled to open this Wednesday in Red Deer. The Alberta-based restaurant chain markets its pizza as authentic to that produced in Naples, Italy, with ‘00’ Caputo flour and tomatoes from Italy, as well as whole milk mozzarella. The dough is hand-stretched and pizzas baked in bell-shaped ovens at about 900 F. Famoso’s other offerings include sandwiches, salads, gelato, tiramisu and specialty coffees. Located at 5016 51st Ave., the former site of the Blockbuster video store, the Red Deer restaurant has seating for about 80, plus a patio.
