Italian pizza is definitely one of the most coveted meals out there. In recent years, it has been able to reach almost all the far ends of the earth because of its delicious taste and unique texture. But an authentic Italian pizza is not just a delicious dish, it is the celebration of culinary art at its finest. However, to get the best Italian pizza, you need to master the following:

1. The base

The base of a pizza is one of its most important components of the dish, and so it must be done the right way. It is the base that gives the pizza its texture, and that houses the other ingredients together giving it that delicious taste. So, what does the best Italian pizza base look like? An authentic pizza base is thinner, lighter, crispier and tastier than what most people might be accustomed to getting in some supermarkets and pizzerias. Getting the base right requires lots of practice. But once the right formula is gotten, the battle is half won.

2. The sauce

You need high-quality ingredients to make the best Italian pizza. And when it comes to the sauce, you will need fresh peeled tomatoes, preferably San Marzano tomatoes, blanched with salt, virgin olive and fresh basil for an authentic taste.

3. The cheese

Cheese plays a crucial role in the texture and taste of a pizza. Except for a few notable exceptions, you can’t really call it a pizza unless it is loaded with cheese- preferably the flavoursome mozzarella di Bufala cheese. No wonder mozzarella is often referred to as “the glue that holds the pizza together.” Its stretchy, melty, and tasty qualities make it a crucial component of an authentic Italian Pizza.

4. The toppings

Having taken care of the base, the sauce and the cheese with prowess, we complete our pizza puzzle with the toppings. This is probably the only part that allows some creativity. While the traditional Italian pizza resorts to some fresh basil leaves as topping, you can flirt with textures and flavours depending on your mood by adding other ingredients like provolone, black olives, Italian sausage, mushrooms, tuna etc.

The best Italian pizza is simply a culinary masterpiece, one that relies heavily on a component not mentioned above- the experienced hands of a pizza chef. You can delight your taste buds with this masterpiece at Casa Tua. Get in touch with us for more information.
