More than just another pizza restaurant, Cavalli Pizza in McKinney is serious about “the perfect pizza.” Clara and Paolo Cavalli have stayed true to their Italian heritage and commitment to pizza perfection.
Having undergone a rigorous certification process set forth by the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association in Naples, Cavalli’s is the first restaurant in Texas to be awarded this standard of excellence that outlines exact specifications for making authentic Neapolitan pizza.
That’s good news for pizza lovers. It means you’ll always get a traditional pizza cooked in a wood-burning oven at 900 degrees with fresh, all natural, non-processed ingredients.
And that’s not all. The dough must be hand-worked, no larger than 11 inches once cooked with a raised edge crust of about an inch, and a thin center. It must be soft and easily foldable. Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?
The Cavalli’s have also scored big with a top-quality ambiance. The restaurant is Italian traditional and exudes warmth from the second you arrive. There are two dining areas and a wine bar that contributes to a standout dining experience.
What I found to be the most interesting (and unusual) is their community engagement through Twitter. Here’s what I mean:

@CavalliMcKinney Not yet. But it’s in our plans. Around here, when we eat out we wrap it into an article about the restaurant for our site.

It’s safe to say that perfectly prepared pizza, a warm and inviting ambiance, and community outreach go a long way. Add a wine bar, other Italian dishes and a happy hard-working staff, and you have perfection.
You have Cavalli Pizza.
