Otto Pizza

Otto Pizza

Pizza you say, whats so special about pizza? Well… this pizza is not like the others. Made from cornmeal these pizzas are a lot more filling that your regular pizza and a lot less greasy.
This is the only cornmeal crust pizza restaurant in the UK. The pizzas have a lot more toppings on them, and have a different selection to your usual, the special when we went was fig and pancetta absolutely gorgeous.

Introduced to us by Jackie who has met these guys before and interviewed them, she explained to us that we wouldn’t need more than two slices. We all looked at each other and thought she was crazy- she had previously that day been telling us she had forgotten to eat meals. In the end 3 of us went for the taster- 6 slices all different flavours, and Jackie chose her two favourite slices. You can order individual slices or a whole pizza and anything in-between.

So we tucked into our slices, enjoyed the atmosphere and each others company. By the time we were on our last slices we were quite glad we had listened to the advice- 2 slices really was enough.
However we did manage to find a little bit of space for dessert- cookie sandwich; two home made cookies sandwiching ice-cream.

Christmas Pizza- A little bit late I know, but still.

Just before Christmas a group of us who contribute to the Young and Poor had our Christmas dinner at Fire and Stone. For those of you who don’t know the restaurant it specialises in very odd pizzas. For example, curry on pizza. Their standard pizza menu is divided up into continents, and the toppings are what you would expect to eat in that continent.

Thier Christmas special pizza had Turkey, gravy, roast potatoes, stuffing, cranberry and brie toppings. Even to those who that didn’t sound nice to- we were all intrigued!

So we booked a table for the restuarant in Sptialfields market, bought our own crackers, and sat down for some festive fun.

As is always the way with this group their was lots of giggling and laughing about silly things. We had a selection of their starters including calamari and crispy wonton king prawns which were very nice.

The pizza was so much better than I imagined it to be. It just worked. I was a little bit aprehensive about what the combination would taste like, but also quite excited as I love Christmas dinner, and I love pizza. And it didn’t dissapoint.

The gravy was spread like you would normally spread tomato puree on the base, and then thin slices of turkey layered up like cheese or pepperoni. The cranberry sauce and brie complimented it really well and made sure that it didnt taste too dry.

Sadly this pizza is only a Christmas special, but if you like the sound of these combinations it is definately worth a visit.
