On Friday night M and I decided to head down to our favourite wood fired pizza place which happens to be only 1 minute down the road from us in Heidelberg. We hadn’t been for a while so a visit was overdue.
We ordered a medium pancetta pizza and a large Amici (yes we’re big eaters). The pizzas there are always fantastic and this was no exception. Beautiful thin bases and good quality toppings really make a difference.
We were seated next to the stone wood fire oven which let off a beautiful warm glow and could see the flames flickering, reflected in the window.
The pancetta pizza was delicious and mild and the ingredients complemented each other beautifully – gooey brie cheese, pancetta, asparagus.
Next up was our Amici pizza – a classic combination of ingredients. They were out of salami so substituted spicy sausage (which I actually really liked), along with ham, mushrooms, capsicum and olives. We’ve got quite a taste for spice so we were given a little cup of oil with fresh chillies in the bottom to spice it up – they could just as easily use store bought hot sauce but this was a lovely little touch.
The best thing about Pizzeria Amici is that the ingredients are always fantastic quality and the dough of the base is 'just right' to create a nearly faultless pizza.
Mmmm... I feel like some more right now!
P.S. As mentioned in my previous post, I only decided half way through our meal to start this blogging adventure - so please excuse the shots of half eaten pizza!
