BIG MAMMA GROUP
Old-school Italian trattoria style
Gloria Trattoria and Circolo Popolare have now been transformed into Italian Delis and Caterers with Click & Collect. The grocery will stock products direct from their producers, such as the Parma Ham, the great olive oil from their restaurants as well as flour and yeast. Plus, the magical vino from their winemakers and a selection of homemade cocktails. As for catering, expect a mouth watering selection of antipasti, hot piatti, indecent dolci, including Burrata with pesto heart, The Big Lasagna, Gnocchi cacio e pepe, the famous Tigramisù and XXL Cookies. There are also ‘Fresh Do It Yourself’ pasta kits with all the greats you need to prepare their insane Mafaldine al tartufo. And of course, pizza.
The best Neapolitan pizza in central London
Pizza Pilgrims Victoria is offering deliveries via Deliveroo. Order their Aubergine Parmigiana – oven roasted aubergine in a slow cooked tomato sauce, with baby plum tomatoes, fior di latte mozzarella. A pizza with a meaty aubergine parmigiana consistency, without any meat at all. Like your pizza spicy? Try the legendary Nduja (pronounced en-doo-ja) – a spicy sausage from Calabria – with the consistency of a pate (they even spread it on toast in the south of Italy). A combination of 50% pork belly and pork cheek, alongside 50% Calabrian chili – it is a fiery, meaty winner of a pizza topping. Other favourites include the Napoli Salami and Sweet Peppers that gives a real meat hit but without the heat of Nduja, paired with oven roasted sweet peppers. If you’re feeling creative, order The Frying Pan Pizza Kit.
