British Barbecue Season, Basilico-Style

The return of the sunshine to Britain can only mean one thing – barbecue time. However, as we are all well aware British weather can be rather changeable, so we recommend having a back-up plan. If you want to experience the enjoyment of BBQ flavours without the risk of cold winds derailing your plans turn to Basilico for a pizza-themed alternative.

Tutto Salami – Even if the weather has forced you to abandon your plans of an afternoon of outdoor dining, it doesn't mean you have to do away with all classic BBQ foods. The 6 Nations pizza is topped with salami, spianata piccante, chorizo, pepperoni, and speck, five cured meats that are good enough to rival any hot dog cooked al fresco.

 

 Pollo Tricolore  – Barbecuing food gives it a distinctive smoky flavour. If you're looking for a pizza that replicates this we recommend our Pollo Tricolore. Topped with smoked chicken, smoked mozzarella and roasted red peppers, this pizza will give you that great BBQ quality without the added irritation of getting smoke in your eyes. If you're looking for something a little more vegetarian-friendly, our Vegetarian pizza is generously topped with slices of roasted aubergine, courgette, and pepper, for that same grilled flavour without the meat.

 

Vegetarian Antipasti – Barbecues can be a disappointing affair for vegetarians, but with our selection of vegetarian antipasti, they don't need to miss out on the Basilico BBQ fun. A selection of Italian cheeses, asparagus, olives, marinated button onions, artichoke hearts, porcini mushrooms and roasted Mediterranean vegetables provide a much tastier option than the traditional token veggie burger. If you're looking for something with a little more of that classic barbecue flavour, why not try our grilled vegetable selection, served with crisp bread?

 

Quinoa Salad – No summer get-together would be complete without a fresh salad to make the barbecue feel that little bit healthier. Don't compromise on health or flavour with our quinoa salad. Mixed with greens, beetroot, and butternut squash this side salad will make sure you get all your vitamins and nutrients while being a tasty addition to your pizza BBQ menu.

 

What better way to wash this all down than with a couple of chilled bottles of Birra Moretti? If you're after a gathering with a little more celebration, why not pair your pizza BBQ with bottle of our fruity and floral prosecco for a relaxing gathering, whatever the weather.
