Pizzeria Apollo – Diavola

Pizzburgh, Uncategorized

Diavolo. El Diablo. The Devil. Satan. Belzebub. Mother in law. Many names, for the same, demonic being. One needs all the help you can get in order to fend off its charms. It’s spicy, spicy charms. You’ve seen it in menus before. In pizzas all over the world. Diavolo has always been a word for caution. Try if you dare. That kind of scary warning is not for the faint of heart.

What is one to do? I guess you could do much worse than enlisting the help of Apollo, the God of (according to Wikipedia, I sure didn’t know this) “music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more”. And that’s where Pizzeria Apollo comes in, by crafting a deliciously devilish take on the classic Diavola recipe, which is indeed very, very spicy, but also so deliciously baked that you won’t care too much.

They might be hidden, but trust me, loads of chilli in there! Pizzeria Apollo - Diavola

They might be hidden, but trust me, loads of chilli in there!

A recent newcomer to the Hackney foodie scene, Pizzeria Apollo comes thundering down from Olympus with the thinnest crust you can possibly imagine, and some very strong and flavorful ingredients (spicy sausage, mozzarella and some evil, EVIL chilli), make for some damn fine Italian cuisine.

So next time you’re in Hackney, hankering for some spicy Italian times, head to Apollo for some fiery good ones.

Slimy? Or, should I say, Spicy? Yes, very spicy! Also very slimy. But yes, spicy indeed.

Satisfying? Worthy of Zeus, Poseidon, Hades… the whole gang.
