A Guide to Tasty, Traditional Pizza From Italy

Welcome, food explorers and connoisseurs of all things delicious! Today, we’re journeying deep into the heart of Italy’s culinary tradition. At Trattoria Toscana, we pride ourselves on bringing you the authentic flavors of our homeland. And what could be more quintessentially Italian than pizza?

The Birthplace of Pizza

Pizza, as we know it today, originated from the vibrant streets of Naples, Italy. This traditional pie from Italy is a symphony of simple yet high-quality ingredients, each playing its part to create a masterpiece of flavor. It dates back hundreds of years and has become an iconic dish enjoyed the world over.

At Trattoria Toscana, we honor this time-honored tradition with every slice that passes our ovens. Our special recipe is made from scratch and features only the finest ingredients – like Italian flour, traditional Campania tomatoes, and extra virgin olive oil.

Understanding the Crust

In traditional pizza from Italy, the crust is more than just a base—it’s a canvas that holds the artwork of toppings. Our dough is made fresh daily, using high-quality semolina flour and pure water, just like in the old country. It’s then hand-stretched and baked to perfection, resulting in a thin, crisp crust with a slightly chewy interior.

When it comes to toppings, less is more in Italy. The beauty of Italian pizza lies in its simplicity and the quality of its ingredients. Freshly crushed tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, aromatic basil, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil are all it takes to create a classic Margherita. But at Trattoria Toscana, we also love experimenting with other traditional ingredients like prosciutto, arugula, and gourmet cheeses.

Pairing Your Pizza

One cannot talk about Italian cuisine without mentioning the wine. A slice of piping hot, wood-fired pizza topped with fresh ingredients and a generous drizzle of olive oil, paired with a perfectly chilled glass of wine, is a match made in heaven. At Trattoria Toscana, we take pride in offering an extensive selection of meticulously curated wines to enhance our dishes’ flavors. 

From crisp whites that refresh the palate, elegant reds that beautifully complement hearty pasta dishes, and sparkling wines that add a touch of celebration to any meal. Our wine collection is sure to delight even the most discerning wine connoisseurs.
