Who likes Pizza? Do you think you are a Pizza Expert? Are you beyond an expert? Are you a Pizza God?
I was lucky enough to be deemed a Pizza God for one evening and with great power comes great responsibility.
Pizza Pilgrims along with Zomato teamed up to run this special event, where eleven bloggers congregated together to decide what would be the October guest Pizza.
Below are the nominees:
The P.L.T. (by Matteo) White pizza with provola & porchetta, dressed with fresh romaine lettuce and sliced beef tomatoes
The Mellow Yellow (by Dario) Ricotta infused with saffron, fried courgettes, provola & Parmesan bread crumbs.
Zucca, I am your father (by Fabio) Pumpkin puree base, rosemary, provola & pancetta
Bumblebee-Tuna (by Giada) Margherita with tuna, sweetcorn, black olives, sliced red onion, parmesan & basil
Sausage & Mash (By Alessio) Sausage & Mash Pizza White pizza with Italian fennel salsiccia, onion & porcini gravy, mashed potato, basil & parmesan
And the winner is...
Zucca, I am your Father, by Fabio. This was my favourite and the pancetta and pumpkin based stood out for me. The Pizza Pilgrim dough too was amazing on every Pizza and its light and fluffy texture gave it an authentic and fresh feel.
We were probably Pizza'd out at this stage, but there was time for desert.
The owners James and Thom stumbled upon this during their trip to Italy to learn about Pizza. This was the dough with Riccota and Nutella. It was lovely and both sweet and salty. Amazing night and amazing food..
Lucky me. I got to try a lot of food and meet a lot of new people and some great bloggers. It was good to hear about all the places they have been to eat and learn a bit from each. Do check out their sites.
