Do you know that there are thousands of pizza types? Pizza was made for the first time in Italy. Margherita, cheese and tomato pizzas are liked by most of the people. The non-veg pizzas such as spicy chicken pizza, barbeque chicken pizzas etc are also famous in the Italian restaurant in Soho. Pizzas can be distinguished on the basis of method used in making them as well as on the crust.
Different kinds of pizza based on how they are made:-
This is the first pizza made in the 18th century Naples, Italy. This pizza was so cheap at that time that a poor person could also afford it. The ingredients used in making this pizza are cheese, garlic, oil and a flatbread with tomatoes. The Neapolitan pizza is usually eaten with a knife and fork because it is very light in weight. Nowadays you can find various variants of this pizza like Pizza Margherita extra, Pizza Marinara etc.
This type of pizza is common in London restaurants. The New York Pizza is also thinner as Neapolitan pizza but can handle the weight of many toppings. The condiments used by the best Italian restaurants in London to add flavor are garlic powder, red pepper flakes, oregano and Parmesan cheese. You should not eat this pizza with a fork.
This pizza is square in shape and contains tangy tomato sauce and focaccia-like-dough. However, there are some cool restaurants in London where you will get this pizza with cheese toppings. The best part of tomato pie is that you can eat it even at room temperature. This pizza generally features a bread with sauce, ground beef etc.
This pizza is also known as deep-dish pizza invented in Chicago. The thing that makes it different from the other pizzas is that the topping is placed below a layer of tomato sauce. The ingredients used in making this pizza are green peppers, onion, pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage and ground beef. Some restaurants also sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the pizza.
As its name suggests, this pizza was created by the Greek migrants. This pizza has its own style unlike Chicago and New York. In this pizza, you will find a tangy tomato paste having a strong flavor and topping is done with cheddar cheese and a blend of mozzarella. Greek pizza is also thicker thus able to handle a wide range of toppings.
Types of pizza on the basis of crust:-
This type of pizza can be topped with many condiments. The thickness may vary from a 1/8 to ¼ inch. The crust is usually rolled out on a chopping board and configured into the pan’s shape.
