Pizza is of course one of the favorite foods of Italians, it’s the queen of the table. A recent study found that one in two Italians prefer it to any other dish! There is no doubt, therefore, that it is one of the most loved, requested, and prepared foods in every corner of the planet. Visiting Rome and enjoying a delicious pizza is always a real pleasure, but even more so when it is made with your own hands.

Experience Rome through its world-renowned cuisine
For us Italians, food is synonymous with conviviality and sharing, and pizza lends itself perfectly to this feeling of community. Eating pizza with your partner, friends, or family means spending carefree and fun special moments.
But, why does everyone like pizza? Pizza is a dish with a thousand faces and for all occasions. It is a practical food that can be eaten just as quickly as street food, or for lunch and dinner at home. It is a very simple dish but it can be enriched to your liking.
There is not just one type of pizza. In fact, the truth is quite the opposite. Pizza can be prepared in different ways with particular tastes and creative combinations, and because of this, it can satisfy our desires for each and every moment. We can either change our minds, or fall back on an old reliable favorite every time, such as Margherita, Diavola, Capricciosa, Boscaiola, Marinara, Napoli, and so on…
Pizza’s strength lies in the ingredients used: the dough is rich in carbohydrates which, when cooked, positively stimulate both the palate and the brain, almost creating an addictive effect. This effect is further enhanced by the cheese or cured meat proteins, which stimulate pleasure receptors. In addition, the red of the tomato or the bright color of the vegetables gives that chromaticity to the pizza that adds a further factor of joy.
