At last – true Italian pizza, delivered direct to your home, from Donald Russell. And what pizza!
It will come as no surprise that Donald Russell Managing Director, Tazio Gagliardi, with his Italian heritage, is a pizza aficionado. When he couldn’t wait to get these home, we knew they were the genuine article.
They’re all made in Italy of course – by hand, in the small town of Fregona, Veneto, about 40 miles north of Venice – and are authentically Italian from start to finish. One bite and you’ll be hooked…
The dough is made in the traditional way, using Italian durum wheat and Italian extra virgin olive oil. It’s hand pulled and tossed to be light as air – perfectly thin and with a crisp crust.
Try the classic pizzeria round shape. Or sample the master Pizzailo’s art through our unusual and exciting styles, little known outside of Italy. There’s Barchetti (‘mini boats’), Frusti (part folded) and Rettangolari (rectangular – ideal for sharing)
The sauce is fresh and deceptively simple, like the best Italian cooking. Just Italian tomatoes, with Italian basil, and a little salt. Then come the toppings! Feast your eyes on these ...
Simplicity at its best. Fresh pulped tomatoes, simply seasoned with salt and oregano, topped with torn fresh mozzarella. This is the basis of all our toppings.
Prosciutto e Mascarpone:
Italian style cooked ham, ‘Prosciutto Cotto’, with thin, melting pats of fresh tasting, creamy mascarpone.
Four delicious Italian seasons represented on one pizza! Artichokes for spring, ripe peppers for summer, mushrooms for autumn, and Prosciutto Cotto for winter.
Grilled Mediterranean vegetables – ribbons of zucchini (courgette), thin disks of melanzane (aubergine), and peperone rosso (red peppers).
The classic margherita, adorned with slices of ripe cherry tomato, mini pearls of mozzarella, and fresh Italian basil.
Savour the tastes of Napoli and Roma. You can do all this without having to go further than your own kitchen, as all of these pizzas bake beautifully, straight from frozen in your home oven, in under 15 minutes. So go on - pour the wine and enjoy a slice of la dolce vita!
