Let us look at the best varieties of this dish that one should eat once in his/her lifetime.
Neapolitan Pizza is the first ever type of Pizza ever made which originates back to the 18th Century. The invention of this delicious dish was in Naples, Italy. What’s interesting to know is that this food was made for poor people as it was cheap. Neapolitan was reasonable, affordable and was plentily available.
Today the different types of Neapolitan are-
Made from Tomatoes, sliced mozzarella, basil and extra amounts of olive oil
Made from garlic, oregano, virgin olive oil and tomatoes
Neapolitan Margherita extra
Made from bazil, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella from Campania and extra loads of virgin olive oil
Otherwise known as deep dish Pizza, it gets its name from the city of origin. When during the early 1900s the Italian migrants settled in Chicago, they were on a lookout for something as delicious as the Neapolitan. However, instead of creating the same type of texture, the migrants went for a transformation from thin to the thick crust and gave a name of Chicago Pizza. This dish looks similar to a pie and has mozzarella lining the dough. It also includes loads of other stuff in its crust such as vegetables, meat, and olive and crushed tomatoes. Today, mostly the topping consists of beef, onion, mushrooms, sausage and tomato sauce.

This pizza was brought to America by Sicilian immigrants in the early 19th Century, which became quite famous during the time of the Second World War.
