Ever since I went to school in Rome as a teenager and had pizza bianca for lunch I have loved this simple piece of pizza bread and I faithfully come back to my favourite bakery on Campo de’ Fiori in Rome to get my hot piece of pizza bianca or rossa right out of the oven whenever I can. Make sure to put this on your itinerary next time you visit Rome.
There are always many customers and you have to fight your way through and catch the attention of the sales staff. When you then stand outside again with the pray in your hands, you almost cannot wait to go the few hundred meters to Piazza Farnese where you can sit in the shade in front of Palazzo Farnese and sink your teeth deeply into this treat.
Pizza bianca (white pizza) is simply a pizza without any topping, just cripsy dough, salt and olive oil. Rossa on the other hand is topped with tomato sauce, no onions, garlic or herbs – just tomatoes, salt and olive oil- heavenly!
