Sorry for the lack of updates lately. At the moment i am in New York visiting family, so there will be a USA post coming in the next two weeks. This post however is about one of my visits to Roso Pomodoro in Balmain. It’s a bit out of the way if you are used to eating out in the city, but it is well worth the trip over to Balmain. There is one pizza on their menu that i didn’t get a chance to get a photo of. Nutella calzone!
Garlic pizza crust $9.50 – Fresh garlic on a pizza base, even with the pungent garlic you can still taste the soft slightly chewy dough.
Funghi Pizza – Tomato, Italina Mozzarella and field mushrooms $19 – Mushrooms, mushrooms, mushrooms. The mushrooms were slide really thing allowing them to cook through and absorb all the oils from the cheese.
Prosciutto Pizza – Tomato, Italian Mozzarella and Prosciutto $22 – Just a really simple pizza with prosciutto.
Capricciosa Pizza – Artichoke, olive, pancetta and mushroom $20 – I would almost call this a supreme pizza, it had almost everything on it. There are only a few olives scatter on this pizza, so if your dinner crowd likes olives be prepared to fight for your share of the olives.
Della Casa – Spinach Parmesan, Italian Salami and hot salami, Italian Mozzarella $24 – At first i was hesitant about this pizza, i thought the spinach would be wilted but as you can see in the photo above, they put the spinach on after the cook it. Yeah, i know, you probably think I’m not all that bright. Of course thats how you would make a spinach pizza. The pizza was a refreshing break from all that mozzarella cheese.
Prawn pizza – Prawns, garlic and grape tomatos $26 – Unfortunately this pizza is not available on the regular menu, you have to get lucky to find it on the specials menu. This pizza is white pizza, no tomato base, it works well with the garlic and the prawns. The grape tomatoes add just enough acidity to cut the fattiness of the cheese.
