I need to tell you, my food weakness is pizza. Every now and then I make it at home, always trying some low carb recipes and playing around with different toppings. This is totally fun and I love it!
However, when I spot a really good pizza place I make exceptions to my diet routine, allowing me to indulge once in a while with a good and traditional Italian pizza, and this is the case with Albero-di-lemone Trattoria, in Sutherland, Sydney.
Their pizza is so good that’s worth every gram of gluten and refined carbs in it. But, before you go all sad and think this is not for you, hold on a minute! There is a gluten free crust available, not to mention delicious risotto and salad options. They also have specials every day, with different flavours for pizza, risotto and salad that are not on their regular menu!
We (Hubby and I) had been there several times, so the following photos are a collection of dinners, ok? 😛
Normally we get for the entree:
- Buffalo mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, chilli e basil (GF)
- Garlic and herb pizza
Their pizza serves well two people, leaving room for an entree or a dessert. The risotto, however, is HUGE and I advise you to not get anything else in case this is your choice. Below a few things we already tried:
- Margheritta: the classic mozzarella, tomato e basil pizza.
- Napoli: olives, anchovy, capers e pesto.
- Risotto: roasted pumpkin, prosciutto, fontina, oregano. (GF)
Hmm, I dream with this risotto every now and then…
About their pizza, the crust is very crunchy and thin enough. Toppings come in a good quantity, they use very good quality ingredients and their tomato sauce is fantastic!
I highly recommend trying their special pizza flavours! We had it a couple of times and we absolutely loved.
