If you didn't already know
pizza a.k.a heaven on a plate is one of our ultimates faves
we usually stick with the classics and party with pepperoni
but its time for these strawberries to venture out of their pizza comfort zone
and where better place to experiment than
LONDON PIZZA FESTIVAL
you read that right… a pizza festival.
The sell-out event was organised by Dan of Young and Foodish and aimed to crown one of 5 UK pizza outlets the ultimate pizza champion...
HELLO PIZZA FRIENDS we think we have something in common…
the love of melty cheese crusty dough and bubbling tomato sauce
even dogs couldn't keep away from the smell of glorious pizza surrounding borough market
so the idea was simple… a slice of each pizza before voting for your fave
First stop, Berthas for a 'Kimcheese'
Mozzarella, house-made kimchi, devon blue cheese on a sourdough base
Our first kimchi experience and one we would like to repeat
Beth tucking right in there
Pizza 2 - Honest Crust
Smoked pig's cheek, kale, chilli, mozzarella, pecorino romano and garlic
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS and unexpected…
we're not the biggest fans of kale but this blew our brains with scrumptiousness!
Just look at that oozy cheese
Not in the competition but some pizza celebs from Naples
hey or should that be bonjourno
can we have some of that please
Cheese + tomato = best friends forever
Pizza 3 - Sud Italia
Buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil, rocket and grano padano
slightly too 'healthy' for us but tasty none the less
what's next Beth?
the man himself
Pizza 4 - Made of Dough
San marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, sobrasada, friarielli and basil...
we actually managed to wangle 3 slides of this one, but ssshh don't tell anyone.
Really yummy… more in our comfort zone than the rest of the bunch
sissys with the same tastebuds
Pizza 5 - Yard Sale pizza
Tender stem broccoli, mozzarella, tomato sauce, manchego, pine nuts and garlic
Riley from inside out would NOT be impressed - us on the other hand?
Honest Crust won our hearts but unfortunately not the competition
Made of Dough won the crown
they were our second faves so we'll let them off
all in all a magical (and very filling) day
can it please be London Pizza festival everyday?
great, we'll be there x
