    The 3rd Annual Boston Pizza Festival is set to make a splash this year with pizzerias from New England and Naples, Italy confirmed to provide the pizza.

    Get ready pizza lovers. The Boston Pizza Festival is back in town this weekend and it’s going to be tasty.

    The festival is the largest consumer pizza event in New England, according to event organizers. It will feature 30 of the top pizzerias in the region, including Regina Pizzeria and Fiorina Pizzeria. Multiple pizzerias from Naples, Italy, will also be serving pizza at the festival.

    The directors of the festival, Raffaele Scalzi and Giancarlo Natale, started the event two years ago to showcase Boston’s best pizza and show off their Italian roots.

    “We have an impressive roster of pizzerias representing the best Boston has to offer, along with some Raffaele and I handpicked coming to us straight from Italy,” Natale said.
