What’s pizza al taglio

There are all sorts of pizzerias and pizza restaurants in Rome. Roman and Neapolitan, focaccia and pinsa, but the most convenient, especially if you’re just trying to have a quick bite, is pizza al taglio. In these joints, pizza is usually sold by weight, always freshly prepared and reasonably priced. Pizza al taglio is the most common type of pizzeria in Italy, and can be found from Genoa to Venice and from Milan to Rome. Pizza al taglio is the place to go for a quick lunch, or to order giant pizza pies for special occasions and, of course, this is where local kids go after school to grab a piece of pizza bianca (no toppings) or sweet pizza with Nutella.

In this post we’re going to talk about one place in particular located in Trastevere, called La Boccaccia. La Boccaccia is a great place with a large selection of steaming-hot, delicious, mouthwatering pizza. Pizza here is cooked the roman style and the cooks put their hearts and souls in every single pie. This place is adored by the locals, but very often overlooked by tourists.
