Not woodfired but still wonderful sourdough pizza on a beach!. My lovely family have to put u with my foodie obsessions, so that even on holiday, I’m looking out for lovely foodie experiences for us to share, and in the South West we are blessed with lots of options to make this fun for me and my young family. This was a real find that we stumbled across at West Beach, Porthmeor at St Ives down in sunny Cornwall. My eyes lit up when I saw the sign for West Beach Bakery, especially that they did a wonderful selection of sourdough Pizza at a very reasonable £6-7 a pop. You can eat your pizza at their beach side tables or they’ll give you the pizza in a box for you to take down to the beach a few yards away. We went for a Prosciutto, mushroom and taleggio cheese which was a perfect balance of salty umami flavours, and a mozzarella, tomato and basil which was wonderful in it’s simplicity and a good test of a pizza joint. Cooked in electric pizza ovens, I was surprised at the depth of flavour from the sourdough, which made for a stunning crusty pizza in the Napoli style. Sat on the white sand beach with the azure cornish sea in front of us, it was a truly perfect meal. They also do some stunning loaves, great coffee, cakes and ice cream. Cheers Marcus
....how dare they produce such a good looking pizza that wasn't wood-fired....in all honesty it looks the "dogs bollocks"......and is no comparison to the stuff i see come out of the commercial chains in my area.
