Pizza? Did someone say pizza? A half metre long pizza? Really? oh and don’t forget the Prosecco darling!
La Favourita, one of Edinburgh’s pizza hot spots have just launched their 1/2 metre pizza and Prosecco Thursdays.
Every Thursday at La Favorita you can devour a half-metre pizza between two, with your choice of 8 toppings while sipping on a bottle of the finest Italian Prosecco.
The pizza is hand-stretched and fire-baked. Served to your table on long boards, perfect for sharing between two or a group of friends. The best part is their pizza stands – large cans of tinned tomatoes! Love it!
Between our group of 4 we ordered the following toppings :
VEGETARIANA – Tomato, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, mushroom, grilled courgette, mixed peppers. I enjoyed this the most. I loved the sweetness from the tomatoes and the peppers, the teared lumps of mozzarella and the grilled courgette was soft but held its shape.
DIAVOLINA – Tomato sauce, mozzarella, spicy Salami Ventricina, mushrooms and hot red chilli. This was a little too hot for me. The toppings are generous though.
TRICOLORE – Tomato sauce, mozzarella, roasted free-range chicken breast, rosemary-infused roasted potatoes, sliced pancetta, basil pesto. Enjoyed the taste of this pizza too. The potatoes added a different layer of flavour and the chicken strips were large and juicy (nice that they weren’t overcooked or dried out in the oven).
