What? One of my favourite concepts revisited: the Sweet Pizza.
Made with a thin Italian bread-style base, this particular variety lacks the exciting toppings of Custard and Fruit that I’ve sampled on other Dessert Pizzas here in London.
Nevertheless, the principle still floats my boat.
Artisinal bread impregnanted with Raisins and covered in a scattering of Sugar?
Alas, its simplicity didn’t quite work in its favour, despite the nice balance of flavours. The reason? The base itself.
You see, without the distraction of various toppings, the success of this dessert was almost entirely dependent on the bread, which was so tough and dry it actually hurt to eat it.
Never before has my mandible had such a work out: a few bites in and I was already feeling the pain of lactic acid in my jaw muscles.
Now don’t get me wrong, Ogglers. I’m all for burning off calories in order to justify seconds (or even firsts) of desserts and cakes.
Burning off facial tissue however?
No, thank you, Pizza Dolce
How Much? £1.30 for a pretty big slice (more than enough to get two jaws screeching)
Filling me softly. Not.
