What could be better than a freshly baked pizza with a bottle of red in a cosy Italian restaurant? Well, a freshly baked pizza in the shape of a heart of course! To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Rossopomodoro, London’s branch of one of Italy’s best loved pizza restaurants is offering you the chance to give your pizza a romantic twist this year, a heart-shaped creation bursting with love.
Last week I had the opportunity to actually make my very own pizza at the Rossopomorodo X Aurora Stories Bloggers Pizza Masterclass I hosted. Bringing together a group of London’s bubbly fashion and lifestyle bloggers, we spent an evening mixing, kneading and of course eating 😉 We learnt how to make the best pizza dough, the importance of pizza in Italian culture and even how to make a loaf of bread out of our creations. Let me tell you, it was carb overload perfection. The evening started with canapés of proscuitto and olives, resulted in a main of pizza and pasta, and ended in a generous helping of calda calda (Italian doughnuts drizzled in Nutella…Yes, try not to dribble too much!!)
It was so great to have the opportunity to work on this little project with Rossopomodoro. because funnily enough when I lived in Milan it was one of my favourite pizza places in the city! Thank you to everyone who came and made the evening as warm and lovely as the food. And a big thank you to Sascha, a great photographer friend of mine, who helped me in taking some fabulous snaps during the evening – here you can see a mixture of our pictures. I did try to take a few myself, but realised that my camera was slowly becoming engulfed by a layer of pizza dough. Not good… But totally worth it 😉
Remember, if you do get to Rossopomorodo on Valentine’s Day, ask for their special heart-shaped pizza. Not only will it be delicious, but you’re guaranteed that it’s made with love!
