The sliced pizza is a typically Roman product and now you can find in all Italian cities. The consistency and the dough are different from those of the classic pizza you eat on the plate. Not all Americans have clear ideas about this difference but there is a Roman pizzaiolo who has been living in California for many years and has opened a successful pizzeria by the slice and you can listen to the explanation in the interview below!
