Pianta pizza

Just checking in to say I went to Pizza Express tonight and had their all-new vegan pizza! It's called Pianta, and the toppings are rocket, spinach, mushrooms, artichokes and pine nuts. The base is a spicy arrabbiata, which might be a bit much if you're not used to spicy food. Overall, I was very impressed; usually I am a bit iffy about simply ordering a pizza without cheese (most restaurants don't offer vegan cheeses) because it's never quite the same, but in this case, I hardly even thought about the fact that there was no cheese because it was so flavoursome. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's the olive oil that gives pizzas their great taste. I'll definitely bear that in mind when topping making my own cheeseless pizzas at home!
