Before to suggest you some of the best pizza restaurants where you can eat a nice pizza, here there is a short introduction describing the main kinds of pizza you can eat in Rome:
It ‘a round pizza with soft dough and high-sided (ledge) known as high. The “high” pasta is due to air, which during the phase of manipulation of the dough moves from the center outwards.
Classic Neapolitan dough is not allowed any kind of fat,only water, flour, yeast (beer or natural) and salt.
The cooking of the Neapolitan pizza, finally, is always and done exclusively through the use of the wood stove and then never using other cooking methods such as the oven. The pizza is one of the most common dishes in the world and is present in almost all restaurants and local Italian cuisine abroad.
It’s a round pizza very thin, low and crispy. The dough is made with wheat flour type 00 or 0, water, yeast (or sourdough), olive oil (or to get pizza crisper using seed oil) and salt in proportions such that it is tough and consistent, so often make it necessary to prepare with a rolling pin.
It’s a kind of pizza to ancient origins but which in recent times is spreading; of oval form, it is made with composed dough of soft wheat flour, soybeans and rice, with a high degree of hydration (75% of water compared to flour) and a leavening long (up to two days), making it highly digestible and light.
