This is our second time at Gigi Pizzeria in Newtown. Last time it was us and Rachel as her husband couldn’t make it because of an emergency operation. This time though, we all made it. Eventually.
Gigi Pizzeria is one hip vegan pizza place in Newtown and their pizza is quite a hit even among the meat eaters. Well, they must be doing something, right?
This was their special for that particular day and I have no idea what the ingredients were but it was quite tasty. That’s all I have to say about that.
I know what this one is because we had the same one last time. It is called Funghi e Radicchio (Swiss brown mushrooms, garlic, dairy free blue cheese, parsley, radicchio, & roasted walnuts, extra virgin olive oil).
As for the dolci (desserts), we had:
Tiramisu di Gigi (above). Coffee soaked homemade Savoiardi biscuits layered with plant based Marsala cream dusted with cacao.
Torta all’arancia (above). Orange almond & polenta sponge served with orange candy & fresh berries.
Pastiera di gigi (above) which is orange blossom whole wheat & candied citrus tart.
