The 10 Best Pizzerias in Rome
What better place to eat pizza than in the heart of its founding country? Italy’s love for pizzas can be seen on every street corner of the country’s capital, where pizzerias dominate the street view. Although many say the best pizza is found in Naples, some of Italy’s most distinguished pizzaioli (pizza-makers) are found in Rome, constantly striving for excellence and innovation. Roman pizza is characterised by its really thin crust, which is more crispy than other styles. Although most pizzerias in Rome are very proud of Roman pizza, you can also find the Neapolitan style if you want to see what all the fuss is about.
Romans usually start off their meal in a pizzeria by ordering fritti, delicious fried treats such as suppli (rice ball), potato croquettes, fried zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella and salted cod fish (baccala). Although you will find an excellent selection of wines in Rome, pizza is generally accompanied by beer. When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
