Types Of Pizza

The word “pizza” comes from the Latin word pinsa, meaning flatbread (although there is much debate about the origin of the word). A legend suggests that Roman soldiers gained a taste for Jewish Matzoth while stationed in Roman occupied Palestine and developed a similar food after returning home.

Pizza is a culinary delight, and has been for years! Whether it’s a Friday night on the couch, or a high class restaurant, you’ll find pizza on the menu! Such a diverse dish for any occasion, below is a description of the types of pizza:

Neapolitan. Normally cooked in a wood-fired or brick oven, good Neapolitan pizza emerges with an extremely thin, bubbled crust. Slightly charred areas will offer hints of bitterness to offset the sweet-tangy flavor of tomato sauce and the licorice flavor of julienned basil. Scattered pieces of fresh mozzarella accent, rather than cover, the tomato sauce.

A Neapolitan pizza is never served by the slice, and rarely comes out pre-cut. The New York style pizza is like the Neapolitan one, while it is larger in size and the toppings on it are more, because it’s often consumed by more than one person, while the Italian original pizza is eaten by a single person only.

The Hawaiian style pizza is made with bacon and pineapple, and is very popular in the United States and Australia. It is actually not from Hawaii, rather given an adopted name because of the pineapple topping of the pizza.

No one would have ever predicted the popularity of pizza when first introduced to places like USA and Australia. Arguably and generally accepted as originally from Italy, and introduced to the rest of the world, pizza has become a favourite and gourmet dish for much of the population. Dressed up or down, the pizza is a taste sensation!
