Pizza is one of the most revered foods in the world, and the Italian classic is available almost anywhere. But while regular toppings like pepperoni, ham, and pineapple have all become staple ingredients that are loved the world over, there are some pizza joints that are getting more creative. In fact, a lot of Italian restaurants nowadays are offering their own fresh new takes on some of the old Italian favourites. The great thing about these triangular slices of heaven is that pretty much anything can be used as a topping, and this has led to some groundbreaking new pizza ideas over the years. Let's take a look at some exciting new flavours to try next time you order this delicious delight.
1. Roast Squash
Brewstone is one of the best-loved eateries in Swansea thanks to its combination of craft beers and stone-baked foods. They are known for having some highly innovative pizza toppings on the menu, which is why customers keep coming back for more. One of the stand-out options is the rarebit pizza with bacon and creamy leeks, but for this list we have opted for the healthy roasted squash pizza just because it is so original. For those who fancy a refreshing change from the norm, this is one of the best locations in the city.
2. Italian Lamb Pizza Pie
Calzone is one of the most enjoyable ways to eat a pizza, but it is still quite a rarity on menus in Italian restaurants. At Mamma Mia on Princess Way, however, there is an exceptional calzone offering which is an absolute must-try for anyone who claims to be a pizza lover. This Italian Lamb Pizza pie is a stuffed pizza filled with mint and spicy lamb, which comes accompanied by a light and refreshing sour cream dip. While there are other calzones on the menu such as the Calzone Piccante, this one steals the show for us.
3. Beef and Gorgonzola
ASK Italian on Wind Street aims to deliver a combination of traditional classics along with more contemporary and experimental dishes. The pizza section of the menu is home to some mouth-wateringly tempting options such as the vegetarian Caprina, which is covered in soft goat's cheese and juicy tomatoes. But the dish which really shines is the Beef and Gorgonzola pizza. It's covered in slow-cooked pulled beef, which melts in the mouth, and works perfectly with the strong blue cheese. In addition to these great flavours, it's also topped with chestnut mushrooms and caramelised onions.
Pizza Express is one of the most popular Italian chains in the UK, and it has risen to this level by constantly providing fresh takes on the Italian classics. One of the most unique options on the menu today is the Fiorentina, which is covered in spinach and black olives, as well as a free-range egg. This on-trend option is extremely healthy and above all, incredibly tasty.
