Harrods X Macellaio RC

Harrods X Macellaio RC

Pizza Vs Pissa.
Naples Vs Genoa.
Italy Vs Italy.
Who really is the master of the pizza oven?

Pop down to Harrods any time before February 18th and you can try both!
This pop up collaboration between Harrods and London steakhouse Macellaio RC puts Head Chefs Giuseppe Silvestri (from Harrods Pizzeria & Canti prosecco bar) and Matteo Riganelli (from Macellaio RC) head to head with their menu of three specially designed pizzas.

But it’s not just chef against chef; this pizza war is regional. With Giuseppe pitching traditional Neapolitan pizzas against Matteo’s Genoese and more unusual pissas.
With all six dishes on offer for £19 each, each pizza is big enough to share- although you definitely won’t want to.

With plenty of options for veggies and meat eaters alike, our favourites had to be the Pissa Focaccia al Formaggio (a very thin and crispy focaccia with stracchino cheese) closely followed by the Pizza Salsiccia e friarielli (sausage, fennel & sprouting broccoli). Both however, were very good, so it was a close call okay.

Good thing I have time to go back and try out some of the others, am I right?

Harrods X Macellaio RC is running until the 18th February.

Monday to Friday: 12-9pm; Saturday: 11am-9pm; Sunday: 11:30am – 6pm
