I rarely to stop talking to my colleague Mario pizzaiolo, Roman Rome, I'm always fascinated by all the anecdotes and stories that made me on this fantastic city and all the stories that happen with the many tourists visiting the capital. If you get to read my previous article “I'll give you a pizza” you will understand the reason for the many laughs we have. One of the most important things I learned from him and Roman culture, is preparing the classic Roman pizza, the one commonly found in all the pizzerias in the city and that Mario and all Romans also call scrocchiarella. Never been more appropriate term for this. The Roman pizza style “scrocchiarella” it does not refer to particular ingredients for the filling, but to a type of pizza, white or red that is, thin and cooked in a non-aggressive in the wood oven, from birth to a pizza thin and crunchy. Much of the credit crunch is due to the use of seed oil that makes the pizza crisper than with extra virgin olive oil that makes the pizza soft (Neapolitan style), and since the writing of the disks of dough which must be very thin.
You get a good Roman pizza with the home oven gas or electric closely following our recipe.
