Any pizzeria can be measured by ordering these Roman favorites: 'Margherita' or 'Napoli' pizza
Italy is famous for pizza but once you arrive in Italy, you’ll soon realize that who has the bragging rights to the best pizza is hotly debated. The contenders? Rome and Naples. The best way to find the winner? Try as many as possible!
In Rome though, stick with “Roma” style or “bassa” meaning, thin crust. Try either the Margherita or Napoli to taste the quality of each ingredient: the dough, the tomatoes, and the cheese!
ANTICO FORNO ROSCIOLI
Via dei Chiavari
Near Campo de’ Fiori
This is technically a bakery, not a sit down pizza joint, but a great place to grab a lunchtime slice of pizza on the go. Roscioli is famed throughout Rome for its amazing strips or fresh yummy pizza – just indicate how much of the strip you want, they weigh it, wrap it and off you go! Also has a great selection of cakes, breads and other hot food. They have a small seating section in the back or tables outside to lean on while you munch! They also have an amazing bistro, with fabulous food and an incredible wine list just around the corner!

Vicolo Savelli, 13
Near Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori
"Se vuoi na pizza, dillo!" If you want a pizza, then say so! This is my top choice for thin, crispy Roman pizza. The waiters are spirited, the prices are right, and the fried appetizers (don't miss the fried zucchini flowers!) are to die for.
