Farina – Notting Hill

🎶🍕 Mamma Mia! Here I go again, vegan pizza, how can I resist ya? 🎶🍕

Vegan pizza is taking over our city and you’re not gonna see me putting up any arguments about it! 😍 A Vegetariana here, a Marinara there and a whooooole lotta vegan cheese to go round 🧀 🍕

In preparation for my trip to Naples in July, I popped into @farina_pizzeria’s vegan eatery in Notting Hill to face-plant into their plant-based options 🌱

In keeping with tradition, the bases were thin and the crusts were fluffy although perhaps a little chewy 🤷🏼‍♀️ For me, there was a bit of a herb overload on the marinara and the tomato sauce was a bit too earthy for my tastebuds. I was craving a little more sweetness 😋 The team have said that they’re going to review the herb sitch! 🌿 However, the way the base soaked up the tomato sauce was divine and really gave you a flavour explosion with every bite 🍕

Now, vegan cheese is a contentious one. It can make or break a pizza IMO 🧀 🌱 Some places treat it the same way as dairy cheese and load it on but for me, it doesn’t translate and less is more. In this case, the Vegetariana had the perfect amount 👌🏼 I didn’t spend the whole time wondering how much I had eaten as opposed to how much was stuck on my teeth as can sometimes be the case! The flavours of the capers and olives worked perfectly. Really tasty! 👏🏼
