Pizza man topping his own success.

IT'S been a hit with Geordies for several years, but Newcastle restaurant Cal's Own has now topped that with world heritage status for its authentic pizzas.

This week UNESCO added the art of the Neapolitan pizza maker to its list of "intangible cultural heritage of humanity".

Neapolitan pizza-making was one of 33 traditional practices from around the world that were added to the organisation's list of "forms of expression" that are of importance to humanity.

And while the streets of Naples turned into a party at the news, there were also celebrations closer to home. Calvin Kitchin's Jesmond pizzeria, Cal's Own, is one of just two in the UK to be accredited by the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association for its Neapolitan pizza. Calvin, the first British person to be accepted, said: "It's just amazing for us. The UNESCO status is incredible."
