Rudy’s! Why have I not reviewed this before? Who knows? This is one of the best pizzerias in town. The best of course being Alicia’s but that is so far away that I seldom go. Rudy’s is an excellent alternative in town centre and is moments away from St Phillip’s. A true gem in town which deserves more visibility.Since deciding to do a review of this wonderful eatery, I returned to Rudy’s again. We have five pizzas below which I hope will make the case for this eatery. Some of them are specials which are no longer available.
SAN MARZANO TOMATO, FIOR DI LATTE, PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM, BASIL, OREGANO, SEA SALT, PARMESAN & GARLIC OIL.
This rather blurry photograph is the Portobello, which combined the beautifully creamy fior di latte with portobello mushrooms, the profound earthy almost meaty texture of the mushroom making for a very satisfying mouthful.
Holly opted for one of the specials which I cannot quite remember. It seems to be close to the Parmigiana whose ingredients are below:
PARMIGIANA*** 9.20 SAN MARZANO TOMATO, FIOR DI LATTE, ROASTED AUBERGINE, PECORINO, BASIL & E.V. OLIVE OIL
Aubergine, fior di latte, peppers, nice pesto sauce, the whole thing was just delicious, balanced, the acidity of the lemon in the pesto contrasted very well with the meatiness and flavour of the aubergine. Terrific pizza.
SAN MARZANO TOMATO, FIOR DI LATTE, WILD BOAR SALAME, N’DUJA, ROQUITO PEPPERS, PARMESAN, FRESH CHILLI, BASIL & E.V OLIVE OIL
I had the cinghiale which was a boar salami pizza with some rather spicy peppers. The nduja was just delicious and added a richness and almost smokiness to the overall flavour. An excellent pizza. I ate 3/4 of it in one go!
Another pizza from the special menu. This was one with pumpkin, basil and fennel sausage – the combination actually brought tears to my eyes. This was an explosively flavoursome, brilliantly balanced. Quite unbelievable. An autumnal treat.
Overall this is an incredible eatery and I believe the photographs of the pizzas speak for themselves. Do go either in person or a takeaway. They also do cook at home pizzas which I have made use of on many occasions.
