A new brand for the country-wide Tony Macaroni group of Italian restaurants and cafes, specialising in Neapolitan pizza, with sharing beer from 32 Via dei Birrai, the first Italian microbrewery.
There must be a pizza revolution happening in Glasgow at the moment, a plethora of places are popping up, most claiming to serve the most authentic Italian, thin-based pizza to be found, boasting about unique sourdough recipes, Italian-sourced pizza ovens and the like – Mozza is no different, rebranded from Tony Macaroni, though still run by the group, the ethos is simple: authentic Neapolitan pizza with Italian beer to share – interestingly coming from 32 Via dei Birrai, the first microbrewery in Italy, and looking like wine bottles, with a cork which turns into a keyring you can take home. Their claims are founded – the pizza dough is light and the crust wonderfully crisp and full of flavour. Thirteen combinations are available, from the most basic tomato, mozzarella and basil through to an unusual gorgonzola and parma ham, drizzled with sticky fig jam then crowned with chopped walnuts adding texture and crunch. To finish ‘birramisu’ is a must – as the name suggests it’s a beer-based version of tiramisù. the coffee and beer combination works surprisingly well and ends the meal with a fun twist.
