To me pizza is just not pizza, if you don’t like pizza you have no idea what i’m talking about but if you do i’m sure you know what I mean. There are lots of different types of pizzas out there and I’m not talking toppings. I’ll order from different restaurants depending on the “pizza mood” i’m in. With what we’ve been going through this year I’ve been a lot more in the ”all dressed” corner pizzeria mood than the individual more elaborate ones. I have to say that it all changed a month ago after I had the Foie Gras pizza from Pied de Cochon a month ago.
I had heard many good thing about Bottega and it was on my list to try but times been what they are, all plans are on undefinite hold. Like I mentionned in a previous post on the other hand it gives us all the opportunity to try out lots of restaurants from the comfort of our homes.
Bottega offer both pizze bianche (no tomato sauce) and pizze rosse (with tomato sauce), For my first experience I decided to go with a pizze rosse and pick the Diavola. The the Diavola is San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, salame and chili flakes.
I can confirm tha they make a very good pizza, it was a nice and soft thin crust very bread like. Reminded me of some pizza’s I had in Italy, good portion but not too filing. All the ingredients were tasty and fresh, only down side, and that’s more on the delivery part, it could have been a bit warmer. I put it few minutes in the oven on low heat to warm it up but that was a preference, it was not cold on delivery. I had to try something else too so I orderd and arrancino (yes I can be a glutton). It was also very good and not too much, bigger than some mini anrancini’s you see in some restaurants but smaller than the Sicilian’s ones that are almost a meal.
If you’re in the mood for a more gourmet pizza experience that still offer the classics I would recommend you give them a try .
