The list of Italian achievements is long and impressive, running the gamut from the glory that was Rome through Michelangelo’s deft way with a ceiling to Andrea Pirlo’s impeccable set-pieces. Among their finest contributions to world culture though is the pizza.
Essentially it’s just bread, tomatoes and cheese, but when ingredients meet oven, a mystical alchemy occurs, creating one of the world’s great street foods.
Today’s Big Deal dishes up an innovative take on this Italian classic in the impressive shape of a 14” Right Royal Margherita from La Fav, handily situated in the heart of Glasgow’s West End, fervent pizza-loving territory. Well, we thought Naples might be a bit of a schlep.
La Fav, a Scottish born business inspired by Italian heritage, has established a cherished place in the hearts of Scots who appreciate a modern twist on a classic.
Pizzas are cooked in custom-built, log-fired ovens which heat to 300 degrees C, ensuring a bubbly crisp base and a distinctive smoky flavour. A pizza from La Fav is certainly a cut above your average fast-food offering.
Available from 3-5pm daily, today’s Big Deal offers a 14” Right Royal Margherita Pizza at La Fav.
