Shocking QPR: Pizza Romana


#41

Drove by tonight, looks like the place has closed for good. Too bad, I was a fan but never any foot traffic whenever I went.


#42

Oh noooo. Kid will be gutted .


#43

yeah, I drove by there twice a week around 6pm for 2 years and rarely saw anyone in there…no parking on LaBrea 4-7pm…they made a very good pizza


#44

still didn’t see much of a difference from Neapolitan style pizza…when I hear Roman style, to me and many others, it means al taglio style like Il romanista and Triple Beam


#45

aside from al taglio, in Rome youll find very thin and crispy crusted pizza as the round pizza romana tonda. this pizzeria romana had a different version which wasn’t as crisp.

i’ve also had awesome and long Roman Pizza Alla Pala


#46

yeah, Ive never seen pizza that thin…but I still didn’t really see any difference between Pizza Romana and Neapolitan style pizza…


#47

it was a hybrid definitely leaning toward napoli. they were Romana mostly just in name


#48

thats what I thought


#49

and i think it was managed by people from genoa area


#50

sorry to hear that they’re closing, but not surprised. PR was more or less a hobby for the owner as most of his time and energy is spent on the Divine Pasta wholesale business.

… the Romans predicted the title of this thread centuries ago on their manhole covers (albeit a bit dyslexically):


#52

In my experience the Roman style differs from Neapolitan most when comparing the outer edge crust thickness (Neapolitans are generally puffier and thicker, and Romans are thinner)…

Ah crap. I mis-read that - You meant the store called Romana!

Loud applause
