You want a pizza me?

To celebrate a love of pizza and travel, what better way than to combine the two! Here we take a look at the best authentic pizza to try whilst on your travels:  

Italy = The Calzone

Originating in Italy calzone is a variation on the typical Italian pizza with a twist. The circular dough is folded in half and then stuffed with regular pizza toppings looking just like a pizza folded in half. The dough of a calzone is traditionally made with a mixture of flour, water, yeast, salt and olive oil, once the dough has been made it can be stuffed with a mixture of cheese, meats and vegetables - yummy!

Chicago = The Deep Dish

Deep dish pizzas are often referred to as the Chicago pizza, the home of the deep dish. It's a very thick pizza with an extra deep crust, with a centre often filled with extra tomatoes, cheese and other toppings of your choice. Unlike other pizzas, the deep dish is designed to be eaten with a knife and fork!

Lebanon = Lahma Bi Ajeen

A Lahma Bi Ajeen is a Lebanese pizza which translates to meat with dough. The pizza is very unique consisting of a flatbread base and a mixture of spicy ground meat toppings.  Lahma Bi Ajeen is one of the very few cheese-less pizzas.

Italy = Margherita

The Margherita is another popular pizza originating from Italy, with history suggesting it received its name when an Italian Queen was visiting Naples. A typical Margherita is very thin and topped with fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil, sea salt, garlic and Mozzarella. The Margherita itself is a very simple pizza to make but the ingredients must be fresh and of high quality.  The base must also be cooked quickly at high heat.

Italy = Neapolitan

The Neapolitan is another pizza popular in Italy, as with many Italian pizzas, it's made from fresh ingredients and has certain characteristics. A Neapolitan pizza is much smaller in size with a slightly doughy centre. They are cooked at a very high temperature for less than 90 seconds and topped with more sauce than cheese.
