Normally when you think of pizza, you automatically think savoury. The combinations of tomato and cheese are endless. From the classic margherita to the more daring-diavolo spice, all pizzas I’ve ever known and loved, have been savoury. So, when the option to review Share a Slice’s dessert, sweet Easter-themed pizza came up, I hopped at the chance.
Share a Slice are a social enterprise. This means that, as a company, they want to make a change for social benefit, and in this case, Share A Slice are looking to combat hunger through a buy-one-donate-one scheme, meaning for every pizza bought by a customer, they make and donate one to those in need. A great initiative, and a fantastic alternative to the corporate pizza companies who are only driven by profit.
While they’re a social enterprise, they aren’t limiting themselves in any way – with a selection of 9 savoury pizzas to select from, including a vegan option, the range of choice is fantastic. And with their temporary Easter themed pizza, they’ve added another string to their bow. From a quick look at their website and Instagram, I could see it was some sort of chocolatey, pizza goodness. Oh my! Yes please – sign me up.
It arrived promptly on Easter Sunday, accompanied by its savoury sister, the Double Chorizo (San Marzano tomato base, fior di latte mozzarella, spicy sausage chorizo, magno picante chorizo and fresh basil) that I had also ordered. After a quick reheat in the oven (I popped mine in at 200 degrees for 3-4 mins and it was perfect), my partner and I made quick work on the main course and couldn’t wait to delve into dessert.
I carefully reheated the sweet treat at the same temperature and time as our first pizza – although, please remember NOT to place the nest of eggs into the oven too, luckily we remembered just before it went in! It turned out a right treat.
If, like me, you enjoy Nutella on toast, this dessert will be right up your alley. Warm, melty Nutella atop pillowy soft pizza dough and a sprinkling of Biscoff crumbs. Absolutely divine! At first I thought the size was a tad on the small side – around 2/3rds the size of the main pizza – but it was perfect. Not too much, and not too little for the two of us to enjoy. My only criticism would be the chocolate nest was not the tastiest in my opinion – it was a little dry, and the chocolate quite bitter. The texture seemed a little off (somewhere between shredded wheat and crispy noodles), but while it wasn’t my favourite, the overall effect was delightful!
So, if like me you think: Pizza dough? Delicious. Nutella? Good. Biscoff crumble? Glorious. Edible basket of Mini eggs? Yum! All to help fight hunger in homelessness? Count me in. Then this egg-stravagent dessert is for you.
Available for a limited time only, so buy now via Uber Eats or Deliveroo in and around South East London. An egg-cellent recommendation to round off your Easter.
