Rugby Refreshment- Our New Six Nations Pizza

Pizza and sports- a classic tried-and-tested combination. What could be better than enjoying the game from the comfort of your home with great food and a few like-minded sports fans? This Saturday marks the final three matches of the six nations.

This annual international rugby tournament sees six European teams compete against each other over six weeks. This weekend Scotland will play Italy, France will be against Wales, and Ireland will go up against England.

With an 18 point lead, England has already won the championship but a win this weekend would see them achieve a grand slam. As well as winning a grand slam with a win on Saturday, England would also succeed in surpassing New Zealand's current 18 game winning streak so this final game will come with a lot of pressure for the English men.

To celebrate the occasion we have created a special pizza, one that perfectly combines the classic tastes of England while staying true to our ethos of using authentic Italian ingredients. Our Six Nations Breakfast will feature fior di mozzarella, pancetta, cumberland sausage, mushrooms, free range egg(s) and roasted cherry tomatoes to create a Mediterranean twist on a traditional full English.

If you are tuning in to the England final this weekend at 5 o'clock why not get into the celebratory mood with a group of friends and our special pizza to make a real event of it? Add a side of pizza twists or a selection of antipasti, and a nice bottle of our prosecco DOCG to get in the festive mood. Or alternatively, uphold the traditional combination of rugby and beer with a couple of bottles of Birra Moretti. Whatever you do, let Basilico help bring the rugby atmosphere to your home.
