“But I don’t live in Rome,” you say. Also a common story. Here’s where you’re in luck: You, too, can now be the hero who brings home pizza al taglio, if you’re in Chicago, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, or LA, where ambitious pizza makers, including Roditis at il Romanista, have recently brought the distinctive style to the States. And this is just the beginning. Triple Beam recently added James Beard pedigree to LA's Roman pizza scene. Bonci, the direct-from-Rome al taglio shop now with two locations in Chicago, is aiming for 100 stores in the US throughout the next few years. Meanwhile, there’s an entire school in Miami dedicated to teaching chefs the right way to make al taglio, called the Roman Pizza Academy and spitting out alumni who are opening pizzerias in Arizona, North Carolina, and beyond.
