The Mayfair Pizza Co, London
Mayfair Pizza Co is nestled in Lancashire Court, one of London’s most famous districts. The restaurant serves a range of Italian dishes, including a rustic pizzas, which have been created by Executive Chef Michael Lecouteur, formerly of Bird of Smithfield and Smiths of Smithfield.
The first time I stumbled upon the narrow streets of Lancashire Court, I was with scouring the Mayfair streets with fellow bloggers as part of a competition to win a place on a press trip to Hong Kong. As I literally ran through the streets of Mayfair, past thousands of fashion revelers enjoying the Vogue Fashion Night Out, a huge smile emerged across my face as I wound through the nooks and crannies of Lancashire Court.
A few years later I was back, but this time to sample the Bloody Mary pizza at the Mayfair Pizza Co. Now, I’m a self confessed Bloody Mary hater; but before you go asking why on earth I would want to subject myself to it in pizza form, I’ll tell you why – despite tomatoes being one of my favourite foods (anything with a tomato base is a winner in my eyes), I can’t stand tomato juice. Tomato sauce on pizza, however, is a different story. Call me weird…
It was the tomato base that intrigued me as it was billed as Belvedere Vodka, Tobasco and Worcestershire sauce. The pizza was also topped with cherry tomato, celery leaf (definitely one for celery lovers), wild rocket, horseradish, celery sale and smoked peppercorns. I didn’t read the menu properly and when it arrived was sad to see no cheese; but of course, it wouldn’t be a true representation of a Bloody Mary if there were slices of mozzarella masking the authentic flavour combinations. Fear not, though, as if it’s cheese you want, there are a couple of other options on the menu that do include cheese – the Bloody BBQ and the Bloody Superfood pizzas.
If it’s not Bloody Mary pizza you want, there are loads of other pizzas and dishes to choose from, including pasta, meat and fish.
Pizzas range from £8 – £16 (all Bloody Mary pizzas are £12)
