Vast numbers of Italians settled in Buenos Aires during the end of the 19th and start of the 20th century, leaving an indelible influence on the city's culture and cuisine, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the incredible number and variety of pizzerias in the city.
While the original recipes came to Buenos Aires from Naples, the city's large Genoese population also had an influence in popularising the dish, particularly in La Boca neighbourhood, and while the first recipes were true to traditional Italian pizza, soon a clear "pizza porteña" began to emerge, heavily influenced by sfincione, a speciality from Palermo in Sicily. The typical pizza in Buenos Aires is prepared "al molde" - a deep-pan style that uses extra yeast to create a thicker, more spongy dough, and is topped with very generous amounts of cheese.
But today in Buenos Aires you can find pizza and pizzerías to suit all tastes, from traditional neighbourhood favourites to upmarket restaurants. Many traditional pizzerias have a space to eat standing up at the bar (popular with people ordering a quick portion of pizza on their way home from work) and a more formal restaurant seating area with table service.
