Roman-Style Pan Pizza Making Videos

Sometimes called Pizza in Teglia or Pizza alla Teglia in Italian, this style of pizza is popular throughout Italy these days. However, it’s generally considered to have originated in Rome Italy.

Roman-Style pan pizzas are frequently prepared in large sheet pans and are sold by the (rectangular) slice in Italian bakeries and pizzerias. They are the pizza most associated with ‘to-go’ pizzas in Italy. Unlike some other pizza recipes, no guidelines have been associated with this kind of pan pizza. However, these tend to be the characteristics:

  • short edges (the crust is not tall, like the Neapolitan pizza crust for instance)
  • height and hydration vary: some ‘Roman’ pizzas are short like a short focaccia, while others are tall and soft like the recipe we show in our pizza making video above!
  • edge to edge toppings
