When it comes to food, if the Italians do it, it becomes acceptable. That’s why when we heard about Laboratorio Pizza’s ‘pizza fritta’, fried pizza, we were overjoyed to discover that it was a Neopolitan street food classic. Guilt (almost) eliminated! This heavenly dish consists of toppings between two layers of pizza dough before being deep-fried until crispy. If this image made your heart (or arteries) flutter as much as it did ours, you’re in for a treat. The stylish surrounds of this hip Shoreditch restaurant will make you feel like you’re enjoying a refined and sophisticated meal in a real Italian ristorante, as you stuff your face with deep-fried carbohydrates.
But don’t fear! There are a range of imaginative, fun and creative toppings to add to your pizza fritta, as well as a range of elegant starters on the Laboratorio Pizza menu. We can’t resist going for the classic Pizza Fritta, topped with pork crackling, ricotta cheese, fresh provola with a touch of tomato and black pepper. Tasty, filling and beautifully multi-dimensional. Starters include recipes and produce fresh from the Naples area. Particularly recommended is the octopus bruschetta; taggiasca olive, basil, Amalfi lemon, Piennolo tomato on crusty Italian bread.
