If you’re still arguing about whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza, you might want to look away. After all, once you’ve heard about this London pizza chain’s latest over-the-top pizza creation, the fruit’s presence on the pie will seem rather tame in comparison. That’s because Pizza Pilgrims are taking the very fabric of the pizza and how it is eaten and flipping it on its head. Their latest limited-edition special is none other than the bonkers, ridiculous, downright goo-tastic, fondue pizza.
Now, pizza may already be all about the melted cheese and the goo-ey cheese pulls, but this is a whole new beast. It starts with the brand’s 72-hour double-fermented, slow-proved and hand-stretched dough. This is topped with much more than just a scattering of Fontina cheese fondue and mozzarella, pooling into a pizza-topping pot of fondue. And no, we don’t recommend picking this molten-cheese-covered behemoth up with your hands…
Now, what use is a fondue without something to dip in said fondue? Pizza Pilgrims is a step (or ten) ahead of you, though, as they’ve already thought of that! Each ‘La Fonduta’ pizza comes with a side of fried potatoes and pickles to dunk into the cheese-y goodness.
Have I ever before craved pickles with my pizza? Not particularly. But will I be able to rest until I’ve tried this concoction? Also No!
As if pizza wasn’t already dangerously enticing enough for the lactose-intolerant – because let’s be honest, when has our lactose intolerance ever stopped us from loving cheese? – now Pizza Pilgrims have gone and drowned the whole thing in even more melted cheese… Cheese may hurt my stomach – but it hurts so good!
With a cold snap set to hit the country again soon, this fondue pizza may be just the winter warmer we need! Pizza Pilgrims is bringing the Alps to their pizzerias, minus the cold.
Fun fact: this isn’t Pizza Pilgrims’ first fondue pizza. Back in 2020 the pizzeria partnered up with the Cheese Bar for another fondue pizza special.
The ‘La Fonduta’ pizza special is now available from all Pizza Pilgrims locations, until the end of February. Head here to find your nearest Pizza Pilgrims location and dive face-first into the fondue.
