As I post this, I’m cramming everything in the suitcase ready for my Italian trip with Emma. We are flying off to Milan this evening for 4 days, followed by a week in Lake Como. I absolutely love Italian food (I do seem to say this about most food nations, but I really do mean it this time).
So in the spirit of all things Italian, here is a quick post about pizza at Homeslice, from Saturday night. It’s a new addition to Neal’s Yard, following on from their mobile wood fired oven in the court yard of London Fields Brewery. The pizzas come in 20”, but you can get some by the slice too – there are more traditional toppings, along with more left-field offerings such as bone marrow, or oxtail and horseradish cream when we were there.
We chose a 20”, split half and half with the salami dolce (crispy, slightly sweet salami, tomato, Mozzarella and fresh rocket), and the garlicky mushroom, ricotta and pumpkin seed. Both were lovely combinations with the smoky blackening of the wood fired oven, but a little sloppy to pick up. The giant pizza was plenty for 3, and bit of a bargain at £20 – the slices are £4, which is the same price as a glass of prosecco, which they sensibly have on tap. So, a quick and cheap place to pop in for pizza.
I may have had enough of pizza and prosecco when I come back to England (if that is actually possible - I’m doubtful), but will return with some Italian tales and photos.
