Essential Qualities to Look For In The Perfect Pizza Pie

Pizza Chicago 16

Pizza is a delicious meal that nearly everyone enjoys. But if you think that all pizzas are equal, you are mistaken. Pizza is always good, but truly great pizzas come from only the best pizzerias. Here are a few things to look for if you want to make sure you are ordering the best pizza pie possible:

  • The Right Toppings

A real Chicago style pizza will have piles of tangy tomato sauce and creamy mozzarella on top of real, hand-tossed pizza dough. You should also be able to find toppings like pepperoni, sausage, peppers and olives on the menu. The best pizzeria will have plenty of options for carnivores and vegetarians alike.

  • Fresh Ingredients

The ingredients, all the way from the flour in the dough to the olive oil and the mozzarella cheese, should be fresh and delicious. How can you expect to have a perfect pizza without perfect ingredients? Your favorite pizzeria should have dairy-fresh cheese, garden-fresh tomatoes and no wilting veggies.

  • Properly Cooked

You want the best pizza to be cooked to a crisp. The cheese should be melted, the crust should have some crunch to it, the toppings should be well-cooked and the whole thing should be served piping hot.

  • Delicious Taste

In the end, what makes a perfect pizza perfect is really up to you. Choose the toppings you like and give it a try. A great pizzeria will blend all of the components into a masterfully crafted pie that will please any aficionado’s palate.
