Skulduggery in the pizza world is alive and well in South London.
The lesson learned by Sodo Pizza in Deptford is that the best pizza recipes are highly coveted and best kept a secret.
Replication is the highest form of flattery and the Sodo team isn’t overly bothered that other restaurants are running with its old recipe, formulated in 2014.
Sodo’s current recipe has been improved over the years, but of course there’s no telling quite what changes have been made.
This pizza is the best I’ve had in a very long time.
Dough made with sustainable and local ingredients and none of the nasties in there.
Flour from north London, salad from Essex, burrata from west London and mozarella made in the UK.
This is a local and sustainable food success story, if ever I heard one.
Sodo uses long ferment sourdough, an ancient bread-making method, which breaks down gluten and starches in flour to make it easier to digest and nutrients more readily available.
Pizza is a favourite across the capital so how do restaurants set themselves apart?
A menu with quirky names is a good start.
How satisfying it was to order a Jon Bon Chovy.
Known as a Romana in many pizza places, anchovies and black olives are a winning combination.
