ITALIANNIES has introduced seven new pizza flavours with its 7 Wonders of Pizza Promotion, which will be available at all Italiannies restaurants nationwide until Oct 31.
The new pizza varieties are Sicilian Pizza, Seafood Pesto Pizza, Barbeque Smoked Duck Pizza, Spicy Smoked Duck Pizza with Buffalo Mozzarella, Baby Shrimps Pizza, Roasted Chicken with Hot Sauce Pizza and Roman Vegetarian Pizza.
Italiannies regional manager Andrea Rossi said: “The pizza during this promotion will feature rich toppings harmoniously prepared together with other fresh ingredients on Italiannies’ traditional artisan thin pizza crust that comes fresh from our coal-fired brick ovens.
“Semolina is used to make the dough of the seven pizzas offered, giving it a crispy and chewy texture.
If you like anchovies, perhaps the Sicilian Pizza (RM24.90) is for you. It comes with grilled chicken, anchovies, Parmesan and Romaine lettuce topped with Sicilian dressing.
Seafood lovers can opt for the Baby Shrimps Pizza (RM34.90), which has sautéed baby shrimps, arugula and lemon wedges.
There is also the Seafood Pesto Pizza (RM39.90), with Cajun-spiced prawns with a pesto base, topped with tomatoes, chopped yellow and red capsicum, mozzarella cheese and arugula.
The pesto was good enough to be enjoyed on its own. This pizza was one of the favourites at our table during the food review.
Another favourite is the Barbeque Smoked Duck Pizza (RM35.90) with smoked duck breast a barbecue base topped with peaches, onions, chilli flakes, mozzarella cheese and arugula.
New, rich toppings make Italian delights irresistible.I love the barbecue base and the combination of peach, cheese and onion.
“We tried other fruits such as apples and pineapples, but found that peaches best complement the pizza,” said Rossi.
Next, we were served Spicy Smoked Duck Pizza with Buffalo Mozzarella (RM39.90), which was topped with sliced smoked duck breast, mozzarella, fresh red chilies, arugula and Pomodoro sauce.
“The mozzarella is sourced from a buffalo farm in Langkawi,” added Rossi.
One of the must-try pizzas is Roasted Chicken with Hot Sauce Pizza (RM39.90), topped with roasted shredded chicken with hot sauce, marinated black bean, tomatoes and arugula topped with mozzarella.
It was funny to see some of us at the table, including yours truly, sniffing the pizza to guess why the pizza had such a Malaysian aroma.
I have never tried pizza with marinated black beans, but when paired with roasted shredded chicken and mozzarella, this one seemed like a match made in heaven.
You would be wrong if you expect the Roman Vegetarian Pizza (RM31.90) to taste bland just because it is vegetarian.
The flavourful pizza is topped with fresh spinach, tomatoes, Kalamata olives, artichoke heart and fresh garlic topped with mozzarella with an alfredo base.
Usually, I am not a big fan of alfredo, but I love this combination.
Throughout the promotion period, Italiannies will offer one of the classic Italian desserts, a creamy panna cotta, with your choice of strawberry, mango or peach sauce.
Customers will receive a complementary glass of Mountain Dew Pitch Black, which is a citrus grape flavour, with any order of the pizza and purchase the second glass bottomless at RM5++.
Rossi hopes to excite pizza lovers nationwide with these new and exciting speciality pizza.
