Debunked Myths You May Have Believed About Pizza: Part 2!
If you had fun reading our first article and are back for more, here is a new set of freshly baked pizza myths (see what we did there?) for you to feast your eyes on.
1 – You can order freshly baked pepperoni pizza in Italy
Pepperoni pizza is one of the most popular and loved flavors in the world, by children and adults alike. However, many people do not realize that pepperoni pizza is an American thing. If you order pepperoni pizza when you are on vacation in Italy, the waiter will take your order to the kitchen, but you will receive a pie that is not exactly what you will expect.
Pepperoni sausages do not exist in Italy. There are many different types of Italian sausages available in Ita;y, but no pepperoni. However, in Italy, peperoni literally translates into bell peppers. So if you offer a pepperoni pizza in Italy, you will receive a pie topped with bell peppers instead of the familiar round sausage slices.
2 – Mozzarella di Bufala is the best cheese for pizza toppings
Another myth says that only this specific type of mozzarella cheese should be used on pizza. However, this is untrue, like all the other myths you have read about here. mozzarella di bufala is a cheese that has a higher water content than other types of mozzarella. It will produce a soupier pie.
Keep in mind that there is no “best” cheese to be used for pizza. Depending on the type of pie you want to eat, there are various types of toppings and cheeses that you can add to your pie to customize its taste, texture, and flavor.
3 – Fresh dough is better for pizza
When it comes to the dough used for pizza, most of the time pizza experts recommend the use of day-old (or sometimes even two-day old) dough. The reason for this is that allowing the dough to ferment will also allow the flavor to develop in the dough. The fresh dough will be bland and boring because it will not have time to have the yeast ferment yet.
Pizza is known all over the world, therefore there are myths about it in every corner of the world where it is enjoyed.
