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:
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
