You guys have probably all seen on social media that PickyWops – a west London pizzeria – has recently gone 100% vegan! How awesome is that?! As soon as I heard, I knew I had to check it out, so earlier this week I was super excited to head there with my mum to try a couple of their delicious pizzas!
We met the lovely owners, Cristiano and Andrea, who explained to us that they decided to make PickyWops 100% vegan to align with their values, as they both recently became vegan themselves. They also explained that not only is PickWops now a fully vegan pizzeria, but it is also the first (and currently only) one to specialise in alternative dough. I absolutely love this super unique concept and it was so cool getting to choose from the 6 alternative bases offered at PickyWops: hemp, multigrain, burned wheat, kamut, turmeric and spirulina.
Every single pizza on the menu looked insanely delicious so we had a really hard time choosing which ones to order. We eventually decided to order 2 pizzas to share: the vegan parmigiana on a burned wheat base and the today special on a turmeric base with a vegan almond ricotta stuffed crust. Yep, you read that right an almond ricotta stuffed crust!
Believe me when I say that these pizzas were absolutely incredible, like the best pizzas I’ve ever eaten! The toppings were all finely chopped so they flavours fused together perfectly and the parmesan sprinkled on top was the perfect finishing touch. Oh, and btw, the almond ricotta stuffed crust was heavenly!
Not only are the pizzas at PickyWops kinder to the animals and the planet but they also taste absolutely delicious, so I really can’t recommend that you check them out enough!
Head to the PickyWops website to read the full menu and for more details on opening times so that you can plan your trip to pizza heaven. I’m already planning my next visit and which pizza/base combo I want to try out next!
