It’s sad when a member of your family gets a bad name for doing nothing other than being himself.
I feel the pizza is a bit like this. You may have seen the press on the hot dog stuffed pizza and the hamburger stuffed pizza…
In Naples there is a whole different battle going on. The pizza puritans feel it’s sacrilegious to put anything on a pizza other than fior di latte (cows milk mozzarella from Campagnia), tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil.
In their view, pizza is a poor man’s staple that shouldn’t be complicated with gorgonzola or, God forbid, even a truffle. Even our own annual homage to Scottish asparagus as a pizza topping would be frowned upon.
All of this aside, we love celebrating the humble pizza in all its forms. While our building doesn’t permit a proper wood fired oven (and we don’t want one of those ‘dancing’ pretend electric varieties), we do have some simple rules:
After all this careful preparation, our pizzas are baked directly on the stone floor of our Italian stone-based ovens.
Our pizzas may not be Neapolitan but they are as close as you can get without an easyJet direct flight from Edinburgh! Come and put us to the test. Pizza – the original Love Happy Food?
