Pazza for Pizza in Rome

Pizza is without a doubt one of the worlds most popular Italian foods. The Italian pizza was born in Napoli, where the classic Margherita was invented as a tribute to their queen, using the colours of the national flag. Now, different variations of the pizza can be found in each region of Italy. The Napoleons stick to their tissue thin centre and thick, bready crust, while the Romans like in thin and crisp throughout or, taking quite the opposite approach, adorn focaccia bread with their favourite pizza toppings. The benefit of being in Italy’s capital city is that you can find all styles of pizza in one city. Here are a few of my favourite places to buy pizza:

Forna la Renella

Here you can find wonderfully light, salty and olive-y focaccia bread topped with tasty prosciutto, courgette, quality mozzarella, courgette flowers, anchovies, bursting sun-dried tomatoes and woody mushrooms, amongst many, many more.

My Local Bakery

Nothing was better than coming home from a night out in the early hours of the morning and popping into the bakery for fresh from the oven pizzette – a thick pizza base topped with rich tomato sauce, delicious eaten as it is or customised and heated up at home.
