Mamma Dough, Brixton


Whilst travelling the USA, I learned the importance of high quality ingredients. The quality of an ingredient affects the taste of our food and it also affects our health. Since being back in the UK, I've been much more aware of where my ingredients come from and I've been thinking more about locally sourced food that help to provide better quality meals. Bhav and I (he’s is a bit crazy for a good slice of 'Za' - his words not mine!) went to visit Mamma Dough in Brixton. Mamma Dough pride themselves on their locally sourced ingredients, from the flour in their dough to the barley in their beers.

We visited on a Friday night and I was expecting a bustling restaurant packed with people but the restaurant was quite empty. It had a nice decor with wooden fixtures, simple furniture and a view of the oven and the chefs making the fresh pizza bases. The waitress helped me to choose my classic Mozzarella but the twist of Buffalo Mozzarella (which she promised had a delicious flavour). The Pizza (as most thin Italian pizzas) was cooked fast and was with us within minutes. The smell of the Pizza was mouth-watering and the first bite was delicious. It had a light base with a well-cooked crust and the ingredients provided a wide range of flavours. The cheese was tasty, the fresh basil was subtle but added another dynamic to the pizza and the chilli oil on the side gave the Pizza a kick that made it almost perfect. The only thing in my mind that let the Pizza down was the tomato sauce which was just a little too basic and didn't leave much of an impression, although I still can't complain about the overall great Pizza.

There are many Pizza joints popping up but I think that Mamma Dough is definitely here to stay. With a nice style and an appetising Pizza it makes for a nice lunch or dinner. If I do go again, I'll be tempted to experiment with more interesting ingredients the restaurant has to offer.
