It doesn’t get any better than gourmet pizza. Let’s not kid ourselves, if you are a true pizza lover, then you’ll want to try them all. Choosing which one to order first can be tricky though, which is why we put together a breakdown of our top four pizzas.
Crudo di Parma
The English translation of the name is “Raw from Parma.” This pizza celebrates the natural goodness of Parmesan cheese and ham from a little town in Italy called Parma, famed for these products. Parma ham is a form of Prosciutto, a famous Italian cold cut from selected pork thighs. It is then covered with soil and a combination of pork fat, salt and pepper. The meat is left to age for 18 months, and this careful process makes it a delicacy; an explosion of flavour that you will never be able to forget.
The pizza is then complimented further by traditional Italian ingredients. Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese that is known for its nutty yet slightly fruity taste. The pizza also features with cream cheese and fresh rocket, all topped with extra virgin olive oil. Taking a bite out of this pizza gives you a small taste of northern Italy—a true sensation that will leave you coming back for more.
This pizza honours Italy’s fine selection of fruit and vegetables. A compilation of sweet and fresh, this pizza is bursting with flavour—a perfect option if you are seeking something vegetarian. Even if a vegetarian option is not usually your first choice, this pizza could still be perfect for you.
It combines earthy mushrooms, zesty cherry tomatoes, juicy sweet corn, fresh spinach, and nutty artichoke, famous in the region of Rome. What more could you want? All these ingredients are then united by the famous Proper Marinade Sauce, and Proper cheese. Vegetarian or not, the Proper Pizza menu has something for everyone, and the Garden Love does not disappoint.
You won’t find a pizza that is more sophisticated or classy than this one, thanks to its elaborate combination of high-class flavours. If you are in the mood to treat yourself and indulge, this is the choice for you. The rich flavours found on this pizza augmented by black truffles; a fine dining luxury, and one of the most expensive edible mushrooms in the world.
This flavour is then enhanced with truffle oil, fresh mushrooms and Pecorino – an incredibly creamy cheese made from sheep’s milk. The pizza’s divine flavours are topped with the famous Parmigiano Reggiano, and crunchy pine nuts, giving it a unique texture. The pizza offers an exquisite and memorable taste, and is a truly exceptional way to celebrate Italian flavours.
Vegetables can be delicious, but for many people, a pizza is only exceptional if it celebrates meat as its primary ingredient! If this is the case for you, you’ll love this pizza, which features Italy’s finest ham and meatballs.
With a garnish of slightly bitter yet sweet cippolini, the ingredients are combined with a special Proper yoghurt sauce. You won’t find a better pizza to celebrate the excellence of Italian produce!
