As we belong to the fast-moving generation, there is very less time to cook so nowadays it has become a spontaneous ritual say if you’re having a movie night with buddies what best way then to have pizzas and chilled beer to tag along or maybe you can assert working late night shifts at work what better than pizza as your hunger saviour coming to rescue you. There are numerous occasions where pizza has become an integral part of your food chain consumption but do you actually infer how many categories of pizzas exist or how are eloquently they are prepared?

Being a pizza lover is a very tough job indeed not only you have to have a very specific taste but also comprehend how the different type of crusts makes the pizza the authentic one. Where regular crust is for people who just want to fill up their tummies but in comparison to that of wheat thin crust is suited for the dietary conscious. Pan crust never gets enough applause as much as it needs to, being the complacent and balancing between the conscious and hunger saviour fits perfectly among all.

 ●Neopolitan pizza

 ●Chicago pizza

 ● New York-Style pizza

 ●Sicilian pizza

 ●Greek pizza

 ●California pizza

 ●Detroit pizza

 ●St. Louis pizza

Since its humble beginnings, pizza has gone through numerous transformations to become the dish that so many people know and love today.

Amongst all these are the most preferred one’s for most of the people

1. Neapolitan Pizza

Neapolitan is the original pizza. This delicious pie dates all the way back to 18th century in Naples, Italy. During this time, the poorer citizens of this seaside city frequently purchased food that was cheap and could be eaten quickly. Luckily for them, Neapolitan pizza was affordable and readily available through numerous street vendors.

Variations of Neapolitan Pizza

Today there are three official variants of Neapolitan pizza: 

Pizza Marinara: Features tomatoes, garlic, oregano, and extra virgin olive oil.

Pizza Margherita: Features tomatoes, sliced mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

Pizza Margherita extra: Features tomatoes, mozzarella from Campania, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

Neapolitan Pizza Traditional Toppings:

The typical Neapolitan pizza toppings are fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil leaves, oregano, and olive oil. Since Neapolitan pizza is thin, it isn’t designed to handle the weight of too many toppings. In fact, Neapolitan pizza is so thin that it’s typically eaten with a fork and knife. 

Neapolitan Pizza Baking Suggestions:

Many people will tell you that in order to make “real” Neapolitan pizza, it must be baked in a wood burning oven that’s heated anywhere from 800 – 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, similar to how it was made many years ago. Baking the pie at this high of a temperature only takes around 70-90 seconds to fully cook.

2. Chicago Pizza

Chicago pizza, also commonly referred to as deep-dish pizza, gets its name from the city it was invented in. During the early 1900’s, Italian immigrants in the windy city were searching for something similar to the Neapolitan pizza that they knew and loved. Instead of imitating the notoriously thin pie, Ike Sewell had something else in mind. He created a pizza with a thick crust that had raised edges, similar to a pie, and ingredients in reverse, with slices of mozzarella lining the dough followed by meat, vegetables, and then topped with a can of crushed tomatoes. This original creation led Sewell to create the now famous chain restaurant, Pizzeria Uno.

3. New York-Style Pizza

With its characteristic large, foldable slices and crispy outer crust, New York-style pizza is one of America’s most famous regional pizza types. Originally a variation of Neapolitan-style pizza, the New York slice has taken on a fame all its own, with some saying its unique flavor has to do with the minerals present in New York’s tap water supply.

New York-Style Pizza Traditional Toppings:

New York-style pizza usually features tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Unlike its thin crust counterpart, the Neapolitan, New York-style pizzas can handle a wide range of additional toppings, from pepperoni and sausage to mushroom and anchovies. While this style of pizza can have virtually any topping added to it, it’s common to find pizza lovers topping New York pizza with condiments, like oregano, red pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder.

So next time do remember even if you have 99 problems pizza has got all solutions to it!
