There are several types of pizza that exist. Pizza types vary depending on their origin and the culture in which they are made. For instance, mozzarella cheese and tomatoes are the basic ingredients used in making genuine Neapolitan pizza. Authentic Neapolitan pizza should also contain wheat flour, salt, brewer’s yeast and water. Genuine Neapolitan pizza dough should also be kneaded by hand or with the use of a low-speed mixer. There are three types of Neapolitan pizza: pizza marinara, pizza Margherita and pizza Margherita extra. These three variants differ in small ways but all are made with extra virgin olive oil and tomatoes.
