Making an Impact in the Community
Tutta Bella works within its communities in many different ways, reflecting the myriad schools, organizations, and causes that are close to the hearts of neighbors, co-workers and guests. The company engages in larger fundraising and community events, as well as ongoing partnerships companywide with organizations, such as Food Lifeline and Amara.
Tutta Bella has a “focused community partner program” where each location connects with a local non-profit to get deeply involved (food donations, volunteering, training/mentoring, cross-marketing, etc.) with the organization to help them support their mission.

Biannual Cultural Immersion Tours
Every two years, Tutta Bella founder Joe Fugere takes a group of managers on a trip to Italy to experience the country as he did when he apprenticed as a pizzaiolo in Naples. This fully-paid excursion allows them to meet suppliers, connect with their accrediting body (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana), and learn more from local, Italian community members about culture and food. Their last trip was in April 2016 and they have a multitude of stories and photos to VPN Certification.
In 2004, Tutta Bella became the first certified Neapolitan pizzeria in the Northwest. Tutta Bella is certified as “true Neapolitan pizza by the cherished accrediting body, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN). Tutta Bella pizza follows strict adherence to the culinary discipline of the VPN – from the preparation of raw ingredients to the cooking method in an approved wood-fired oven. Only organic pomodoro di Napoli and fresh mozzarella, herbs, and yeast are permitted.
