The Virtues of Vegetarian Pizzas

There is a widely-held misconception that vegetarian pizzas are boring- not at Basilico.

We offer a range of meat-free pizzas that will appeal to even the most die-hard of carnivores. We use a combination of ingredients that taste great as well as providing healthy options for the pizza-lovers amongst you.

Portabella Spinaci: Inspired by the classic vegetarian dish of stuffed mushrooms this pizza does things a little differently- beginning with a white base made of cream and grated grana cheese. This smooth sauce is then topped with spinach, caramelised red onions, ricotta and portabella mushrooms, to create a dish that champions a classic combination in a warming and filling pizza. Mushrooms are high in iron, calcium, and protein, making sure you hit your macronutrient goals, even without meat- while spinach is chock-full of iron and a whole range of vital vitamins and minerals.

Vegetarian: If you're looking for something that satisfies while providing a host of healthy benefits, look no further than our vegetarian pizza. With roasted aubergine, courgette, red onions, and fresh tomatoes, this pizza is rich in fibre, and vitamins A, C, B1, and B6 meaning it is good for your health as well as your taste buds! Aubergine is a superfood, full of the antioxidant nasunin, which helps to promote efficient brain functioning. Courgettes have also reached super status, in part due to their heart-friendly levels of potassium.

Pizza Sicilian: Artichokes are also up there amongst some of the healthiest vegetables, high in antioxidants, fibre, and folic acid. We have paired them with goat's cheese, sun-blushed tomatoes, red pepper pesto and basil as well as roasted peppers, which are high in vitamin C and beta-carotene and known for giving your skin a healthy, sun-kissed glow. The result is a pizza that is as good for you as it is tasty.

We pride ourselves on providing options that allow everyone to enjoy authentic Italian food. As well as creating a range of exciting vegetarian pizza options, we also provide the option of using vegan cheese, so that everyone can enjoy the taste of fresh, authentic, wood-fired pizzas.
