Why pizza in Buenos Aires? Let’s go back to the roots of Buenos Aires. Between 1857 and 1940 more than 3 million Italians immigrated to Buenos Aires. In that time it was around 45% of the population. That’s why Italian food is well integrated into the lifestyle of Buenos Aires. Pasta, strong coffee and pizza! But said between me and you: sometimes the pizzerias lost their true Italian roots.

What’s the difference between an Italian made pizza and a Buenos Aires made pizza?

To make it short: Buenos Aires’ pizza topping is all about cheese, more cheese and tons of cheese. While Italian pizza is slightly more gourmet style if you make the comparisons. More ingredients that you find on a Buenos Aires pizza are ham, paprika slices and, yes you guessed it, cheese. The toppings are rarer. Cocktail sauce and eggs.

Another fact, the crust of Italian pizza is thinner. In Buenos Aires they love more a thicker crust.

In our list of the best pizza in Buenos Aires we see more to the Italian style pizza’s. However, we will mention where you can go for an authentic Argentinian pizza.
