I’m always happy to try new pizza places and this did not disappoint; my pizza had a thin, charred base, a sweet tomato sauce and small pieces of molten mozzarella on top. We chose two side dishes – an aubergine parmigiana and tender, well-seasoned meatballs. Both made good use of the same tomato sauce as the pizza.
I was surprised to find Santa Maria fairly easy to book but I suspect it won’t be long before everybody else in the area gets around to going. It’s completely different to Homeslice (Homeslice has 20 inch pizzas with unusual toppings, whereas this is more traditional Napolitano style pizza) but I am happy to have both in the area.
