A Review of La Favourita 1/2m long pizza

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).

VESUVIO – Tomato sauce, mozzarella, spicy Salami Ventricina, free-range chicken, peppers, red chillies & jalapeños. Again another spicy one that I took a bite from and even spicer than the Diavolina with added chillies and jalapenos. If you like it hot, then this is the one for you.
The pizza dough is light and thin with those lovely little well cooked bits on the outer edges. You can see where the dough has risen in the heat and blistered. The tomato sauce thinly covered the bases and most of the cheese is melted and gooey.
The Prosecco is bubbly and slightly sweet, very drinkable.
So round up the lads or gather the girls for a Thursday night ‘Prosecco & Pizza’ feast. it’s £40 and will easily feed 2 people. Available from 4pm-10pm every Thursday exclusively at La Favorita Restaurant on Leith Walk.
Thank you to La Favourita for the invite, the pizza and the prosecco!
