Nicola Rexha for Pappa Roma
The Di Bosco for Pappa Roma in South Kensington, London, was crowned the National Pizza of the Year 2017.
Rexha’s Signature Pizza Di Bosco – which means ‘From the Woods’ – was praised by the judges for its seasonality, high quality and perfectly balanced flavours.
“We usually cook by the season in the restaurant and we’re in mushroom season, so for Di Bosco we used wild mushrooms, truffle, stracciatella and 24-month aged parma ham,” says Rexha. “All of the toppings are top quality and chosen in the right season and weather, so that’s the inspiration behind it. And I just really love truffle.”
