The Best Pizza in Newark DE
There’s nothing quite like pizza. People love pizza and will argue over what type of pizza is the best. However what makes the best pizza is a matter of opinion.
Personally, I love all types of pizza. I really think I could live on pizza and coffee.
Before we get into the Newark Delaware Pizza scene, let’s take a look at the different types of pizzas.
Types of Pizza
Neapolitan Pizza is often considered the" original pizza”. It was brought to this country by Italian immigrants. The dough is made with a special wheat flour that makes the crust crunchy and thin. Unlike many other pizzas, this pizza doesn’t pile on the toppings. The addition of minimal toppings is done to keep the crust crisp. Typical toppings include tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and basil.
Chicago Deep Dish Pizza is thick with toppings and has a medium crust thickness. This pizza requires additional cooking time because of the thickness. This pizza is known for the cheese which is usually placed on the bottom and the other toppings are added on top of the cheese. The sauce is placed on the top layer. You’ll usually need a knife and fork to enjoy this one!
Sicilian Pizza is normally made in a rectangular shape. The crust is thick, and the pizza is a great choice for a crowd because it’s often large. It’s popular to top a Sicilian pizza with a stronger cheese than one would normally see on a pizza. Alternately, some Sicilian pizzas are topped without the use of cheese. This is known as tomato pie.
California Style Pizza is known for the out of the ordinary toppings. If you’re interested in toppings that include things like goat cheese, BBQ chicken, broccoli, or even salads… this is the pizza for you! Dessert and breakfast pizzas are considered California styled.
New York Style
New York Style Pizza is made to be folded in half, which makes it easier to eat for people on the go. Because it’s made to be folded, the toppings aren’t piled on like some pizzas. The crust is typically thin and crisp.
While there are several other pizza types, they are variations of one of the above-styled pizzas with a change in toppings or crust design.
