Buffalo Pinsa Margherita

Index

The most famous of pizzas needs no introduction, however this new luxurious take on the classic, using two varieties of mozzarella, zingy basil oil and the crisp & airy pinsa base, really does add a lustre to this old Queen’s crown.

Diners are generally looking for more quality in return for their loyalty and this margherita delivers, in great crispy forkfuls. 

There are some really lovely Buffalo Mozzarellas made in the UK now – and Buffalicious in Somerset is our favourite so far!
