Pizza alta in teglia

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pizza alta in teglia, also known as Roman-style pizza, is a traditional Italian dish that originated in Rome. The term “alta in teglia” refers to the fact that the pizza is baked in a deep rectangular pan or tray, which gives it a unique shape and texture.

The history of pizza alta in teglia can be traced back to ancient Rome, where flatbreads topped with olive oil and herbs were commonly eaten. However, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that the modern pizza as we know it today was invented in Naples.

Pizza alta in teglia, on the other hand, was developed in Rome during the mid-20th century. The rectangular shape of the pan was inspired by the Roman focaccia, a flatbread that is similar to pizza but does not have toppings. The dough used for pizza alta in teglia is different from the dough used for Neapolitan pizza. It is usually made with a higher hydration level and a longer fermentation time, which results in a lighter and airier crust.

Today, pizza alta in teglia is a popular dish in Rome and is commonly sold in pizzerias and bakeries throughout the city. It has also gained popularity in other parts of Italy and around the world, thanks to its unique flavor and texture.

Pizza alta in teglia can be topped with a variety of ingredients, including tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, vegetables, and cured meats. However, it is usually served with just a few simple toppings, such as tomatoes, garlic, and fresh herbs, to allow the flavor of the crust to shine through.

In addition to its delicious taste, pizza alta in teglia also has some nutritional benefits. The crust is made with high-quality flour, which provides a good source of carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Toppings such as tomatoes and vegetables also provide vitamins and minerals, making it a relatively healthy meal option when consumed in moderation.

Overall, pizza alta in teglia is a delicious and unique dish that is beloved by many Italians and pizza enthusiasts around the world. Its history and tradition make it a true Italian culinary experience that is worth trying for anyone who loves pizza.
