  • When in Italy, the food item I wanted to eat the most was of course pizza! But just like New York and Chicago, there is a great pizza rivalry as well between Rome and Naples, Roman pizza vs Neapolitan pizza. One uses olive oil on the crust one has a pizza police.
    So I decided to try out both for myself by dining in Rome Italy and then traveling down to Naples.
    Here's where I went:
    1. Florida Pizza
    2. Di Matteo
    3. Sorbillo
    4. Dal Presidente
    5. La Pratolina

    There is no rivalry between Naples and Rome pizza. Pizza is from Naples and it is NOT only served with mozzarella and tomatoes.

      But you can eat pizza without dairy on it, i mean you miss out quite a bit, but you can still enjoy it! I wouldn’t want to be celiac and come to Italy... that’d be quite sad...

    You didn't taste Roman pizza. You tasted fast food. You should have tried real paper thin Roman style pizza. What you had was like going to taco Bell vs having a real Roman pizza. Next time try baffeto.

    There is not even a blody reason to make this comparison. Naples invented the pizza , Naples makes the one and only.
    Rome invented many other stuffs. But that is not a pizza. It's a focaccia. Full stop!

    TOP KEK Month ago

    the first pizza you had in Rome was "pizza al taglio" which is fastfood pizza in Italy. It can be good in some places but it's not "real" pizza, that should have the classic round shape. The main difference between roman and neapolitan pizza style is the dough, roman one being the standard kind you find everywhere in Italy with thin and crispy crust, the neapolitan one being less spread out, with big edges and more bread-like, kind of hard to find outside of Napoli. By the way, Sorbillo got bombed recently :sad:

    To all Americans watching this video. That's a REAL Italian pizza. All your Chicago's or new York's styles pizzas are NOT pizzas but fake ones. You can call your fake pizzas pies, puddings, tortillas or any name else but they ll never be real pizzas.

    Pizza is absolutely my most favorite food ever! I could eat pizza every day for the rest of my life and I would be happy! I mean come on! You’ve got bread, sauce, meats, veggies, and cheeses! No utensils needed! You can even have breakfast pizza and dessert pizza! I might love pizza a bit too much, lol! I can’t help it though! It’s just so damn good! 😄❤️🍕❤️🍕❤️🍕👩🏻‍🍳💋😉

    I don't know... I'm a pizza lover and have consumed many pizza's in my 60 years. I've been to both Rome and Naples and hung out with my Italian friends from there. They are purist pizza connoisseurs and believe the only "TRUE" pizza is Neapolitan pizza... just dough, sauce and cheese... period. So it was the only kind I had while I was there. It was very disappointing. I ate it a few times from different places that they claimed were "the best" in Italy, I was not impressed. They may have invented it, but in my opinion, we perfected it. I'll take American pizza any day of the week.
