Wood fire oven pizzas @ Red Tomato Pizza

Red Tomato Pizza has been that rustic looking pizzeria in the corner of Barsha which we always wanted to visit but always spotted it after we had our meal in Barsha. So, this time, a long pending bookmark was finally visited.

Red Tomato Pizza is located in the bustling food lane of Barsha, in line with the Citymax Hotel. 1 look & the rustic woodwork invites you in. The place has the charm of a family run pizzeria in the villages of Italy.

The small wooden tables & chairs with the lighting is set up for a photographers delight on still photography.

The wood fire Oven & the pizzas being rolled up in front of you is a feature that I would want all the Pizzerias to provide, you end up ordering Pizzas even without craving for it (not that we didn’t crave ).

We were treated with prompt service at the start with a very friendly staff whose recommendations were truly good. Only point of contention being that we had to wait a lot for their attention once the place filled up.

We were served a portion of their bread with garlic butter with the bread travelling from the heat of the oven to our table in a jiffy. The garlic butter was truly a great spread for the bread while we waited for our pizza & pasta.

We went in with the Staff’s recommendation on the Pasta & had a Fusilli Salsa Rossa with Roast potatoes on the side & a Pizza Pollo Ardente.

The Fusilli was al dente while the sauce with its tomatoes, fresh basil & a hint of chilli hit the right notes. Good but not spectacular.

The Roast potatoes with the sauteed burnt garlic was a smash hit & recommended as a side on every Mains here.

I dislike cherry tomatoes on my pizza as they weigh down the pizza as time passes by & the highly tart flavour somewhat disturbs the balance of the pizza. But, the Pizza Pollo Ardente eliminated both those concerns. The Pizza base could have been crispier but a good pizza nevertheless.

The Tiramisu was soft with the ladyfingers well soaked without it being too sweet. At a point, I felt I was having a souffle with the lightness of the mascarpone cream inside.

The meal for two costed us 160 Dhs which is a reasonable pricing for the food we ate.

Finally, I would say, visit this Pizzeria if you are in Barsha for an Italian homely setting & watch it being done pizzas.
