Whenever I get pizza, I tend to go for the marinara or anything with lots of vegetables with no cheese. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of fake cheeses that weirdly taste sweet to me – I would rather go sans cheese and taste all the amazing ingredients (if you’re in London, you’ve got to try Franco Manca for the best marinara ever) or have a homemade nut cheese on top.
00 + co really stood out to me as their menu is so inventive and uses lots of interesting ingredients. Although they all sounded so delicious, I settled for the margarita with homemade cashew mozzarella on top. OH MY GOD. I really can’t even describe how good it was. I haven’t had a margarita in about 2 or 3 years and this totally made up for it.
The dough was crispy but doughy and cooked perfectly with bits of Maldon salt on top for extra flavour.
The tomato sauce was perfectly balanced, sweet and salty and actually tasted of truly ripe tomatoes.
And the main star of the show – the cheese. In my opinion the consistency was more similar to that or mascarpone than mozzarella, but it was to die for. My mum didn’t even realise that there was no dairy in this pizza until I told her after and saying she was completely shocked and speechless is an understatement.
I couldn’t recommend 00 + co enough, it’s definitely my favourite pizza spot in New York (well… Manhattan, because there are apparently some spots in Brooklyn that I need to check out next time like Vinnie’s and Screamer’s). If you have a chance, definitely go! Whether you are vegan, vegetarian or meat eater, I have no doubt you will be pleasantly surprised by this place!
