When it comes to pizza, it seems there are no shortages of debates. New Haven vs Chicago style. Can you use a fork to eat your pizza? What toppings are allowed on a pie? This list goes on and on. When it comes to food this good, it’s okay to debate. One topic that’s been up for debate for a while now is red pizza vs white pizza. Let’s put them together head to head.
Red Pizza: A red pizza is quite simply, pizza that has crushed Italian tomatoes. The classic Neapolitan pizza of which Pepe’s is famous for focuses on a few core ingredients, one of which is crushed Italian tomatoes. This type of pizza is a classic throwback to times where you made the most of what you had on hand.
The red pizza is a great pie to enjoy simple, quality ingredients done right. Sauce, cheese, and crust combine to make a pizza worth traveling for.
White Pizza: White pizza is any pizza made without tomato sauce. Think of our famous white clam pizza for example. What it lacks for in crushed Italian tomatoes, it makes up for in other quality and tasty ingredients. White pizza is great because you can focus on the textures and taste of the other ingredients used. Oil, cheeses, and meats pop out on white pizzas as they are given a platform to stand on.
Compared to red pizza, you can really get a full taste on all the other flavors of the pie.
