A street food tradition
Be careful when you look for the best pizza in Rome, because you have to split your research in two parts: the classic round one or the ‘pizza al taglio’, which is basically a squared slice of pizza to have in different tastes. Romans are masters of pizza al taglio, one of the most common street food to find in the Eternal city. I am launching a super family tour with pizza included in Rome! Ready to go?
Pizza al taglio, where to go
Pizza shops, ancient bakeries, long levitation, salad and sweet tastes combined together: the best pizza in Rome is hard to find, because they are all so good! Let’s start from the sliced one, which is the most delicious! In Testaccio area there is the local market, Mercato Testaccio, where you can find definitely one of the best pizza in Roma, at Casa Manco , a temple of sweet and sour tastes mixed with great flours. At Mercato Centrale in Termini Station, don’t miss one of the real masters of pizza, Gabriele Bonci, which has a nice corner full of bread and delicious pizza made by pure marine salt and fresh seasonal ingredients; Bonci’s headquarter, though, is Pizzarium at Via della Meloria, here you see the full display of all the pizza and bread you can dream on. If in the centre, don’t miss Zazà, a tiny tiny shop in Piazza Sant’Eustachio perfect to taste the authentic roman tradition.
