Amore Debuts the Official Neapolitan Pizza of New Mexico United
The Amore United has toppings that honor New Mexico United’s already-iconic black and yellow shield.
Albuquerque, NM – Shoppers at the December Nob Hill Shop & Stroll packed the New Mexico United store on Central Avenue, stocking up on jerseys and hoodies. As they made their way into and out of the store, they got a taste of a new way to celebrate the USL team’s first and future seasons: with official NMU Neapolitan pizza.
Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria, the only certified Neapolitan pizzeria in New Mexico, was there to announce the new Amore United pizza. Topped with blackened chicken and corn, the Amore United honors NMU’s black and yellow shield, with red and green chile adding a kick of holiday spirit, New Mexico-style.
The Amore United is now available at Amore’s two Albuquerque locations, in Green Jeans Farmery and West Downtown. Amore United will also be available at Amore’s future third location at Tin Can Alley in Northeast Albuquerque, where the Amore team just installed a new pizza oven imported from Naples, Italy.
Amore is a proud sponsor of New Mexico United. Earlier this fall, the two organizations collaborated on a fundraiser for the local nonprofit New Day, launching an initiative that raised awareness and money for New Day’s services for troubled youth.
“It’s from coming together that positive changes happen in our community,” said Gabriel Amador, owner of Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria. “That means partnerships with local organizations, but it also means just sharing some pizzas, and getting to know the people you’re sharing them with. We’re thrilled to debut our Amore United pizza not only because it’s — admittedly biased judgment here — really tasty, but also because it represents the message that NMU has spread throughout our state. Somos Unidos.”
“At United, we often talk about metaphorically creating a bigger economic pie for the entire state,” said Ron Patel, Vice President of Ticket Sales & Partnerships at New Mexico United. “In this partnership with Amore, we not only get to partner with a great local company to grow that economic pie, but we also get to, quite literally, make a delicious pie! We can’t wait for our fans to try this unique, collaborative dish.”
