Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, we've got, um, a question I can't answer because I've never been to Rome. Anyone out there wanna chime in? --The Mgmt.

Warmest Regards,

------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Janet,

It would help if you told us why you're asking. Is this for budgeting ahead of a trip to Rome? Is it just for research?

Pizza was originally a peasant food--a flatbread topped with whatever was on hand. As such, it's been my experience that it's relatively affordable wherever I've traveled. I haven't been to Rome, so I can't speak for price there, but I'd imagine it's not going to break the bank.

Additionally, from what I understand, Roman pizza is often baked in long rectangular strips and you can simply order as much of the pie as you want. In that case, I've heard it's priced by length. So determining a price depends on how much you'd order.

Anyway, there are people reading this with much more knowledge than I have. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Hasta la pizza, Adam
