What is a Roman Pizza?

Roman Pizza known as 'Teglia Romana' or 'Pizza al Taglio'

The modern Roman pizza is made with a unique dough, using a special blend of flours (rice, soy, dried sour dough and strong grain flour). Thank to its high hydration (up to 90%) and long rising times (minimum of 24 hours) it's much lighter and easier to digest than traditional pizza.

 

What is Teglia?

Means baking 'tray or pan' in which the pizza is cooked. The Teglia is made of a special metal called blue steel.

 

 

What is Al Taglio?

Means 'by the slice'. 

 

Roman pizza is the queen of Roman street food. Displayed in glass cabinets, the customer chooses a slice. This is portioned with large scissors, then wrapped in waxed paper to be eaten on the go. Multiple slices can be purchased to take home.
