nkdpizza kind does what it says – its naked as in natural, made from the freshest of ingredients made on site daily.
For instance their dough is hand stretched and made from 10 grains (oats, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff, spelt, tapioca and two kinds of wheat), prebiotic agave fibre and probiotics, because they believe this balanced mix helps you feel nicely satisfied without the bloating and lethargy you might feel after a processed pizza. I’m just going to go with – it’s a healthier version and almost guilt free (haha!)
Everything was delicious. The dough on all the pizzas was tasty, soft, light and fluffy. The cheese was superb – nice and stringy and a good dough to cheese ratio; but I’m just going to let all the photographs speak for themselves.
Starters : Pesto Focaccia topped with mozzarella, parmesan & fresh pesto.
Sesame Sriracha Wings : Chicken wings tossed in sriracha chilli sauce and toasted sesame seeds. They also serve up barbecue chicken wings which are tossed in their house barbeque sauce with fresh spring onions.
Pizza 1 : Margherita pizza with their fresh tomato sauce, fresh basil, mozzarella bocconcini. Simple and plain but absolutely delicious. Those big puddles of mozzarella are cheese heaven.
Pizza 2 : Sweet Heat pizza with sriracha sauce, mozzarella, piquillo peppers, red onions, mixed peppers, fresh jalapenos and pepper pearls. This one is suitable for vegetarians and is hot!
Pizza 3 : Mediterranean pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, artichokes, mixed peppers, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes and pesto. Suitable for vegetarians.
Pizza 4 : Tri-colore pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, roasted chicken, nduja, pesto and spring onions. This ones for you if you like a little spice!
Pizza 5 : Pepperoni pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. I was never a fan of pepperoni until I tried this, and I’d say it was my fav of all the pizzas.
Pizza 6 : Hawaiian pizza with tomato sauce, fresh basil, mozzarella, smoked bacon & fresh pineapple. Now some might not like fruit on their pizza but I’m a massive fan.
Pizza 7 : Omnivore pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, smoked bacon, salsiccia sausage, mushrooms, kalamata olives and mixed peppers
Pizza 8 : Calabria pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, calabrian pepperoni, nduja, piquillo peppers and pepper pearls. Another one if you like to feel a little fire from your food.
Pizza 9 : Smokehouse pizza with barbecue sauce, mozzarella, roasted chicken, smoked bacon and red onion.
They can do Gluten Free pizzas but only on the larger sized pizza bases; they have some nice salads if you feel the need to balance out the goodness and their cold drinks are Cawston Press.
