Knead to know - 4 different pizza styles

Watch your feet, I'm about to drop. Some. Knowledge.


In all honesty, there are definitely more than 4 different styles of pizza. These are just the 4 that appeal to me the most and ipso-facto, the 4 that I'm gonna sling some spiel about.


1: The Neapolitan


The style that we try to emulate. This softer, chewier style goes back to 18th century Naples, Italy. Back then, the less fortunate residents of this seaside city looked for food that was cheap and quickly eaten. Luckily for them, you couldn't (and still cant) move for it on the streets of Naples! Its high hydration is what gives you its signature light and airy crust. As the dough proves, the yeast creates the air pockets which get delightfully puffed up once it hits the heat, thanks to the large amounts of water turning into steam and creating those puffy outer crusts we love so much. It's also why the tip of a slice is traditionally a little limp. The lightest style of pizza you could ever enjoy.
