Vegetarian Love at 800 Degrees Pizza

I absolutely love it when i find a place serving fresh crisp pizza which is true to it’s roots! At 800 Degrees, not only can you choose your own crust, but they have a Gluten Free option too! On the other hand, you can pick a pizza from their set menu and be just as delighted. Their appetizers are unique and to die for! For those who haven’t been to Italy, this is one place that comes pretty close.

Located in Mall of the Emirates, it has a very spacious setting an and indoor and outdoor area with the light coming in through the glass ceiling of the mall during the day. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the service will put you at ease.

I was taken care of extremely well by their chirpy and ever smiling manager. Not only did he oblige to my request of small portions, he also made sure that we had enough time between each dish to relish the flavors.

We started off with the Burrata and the below has 2 kinds. The top has the cherry tomatoes + pesto and the bottom has the beetroot and balsamic. Usually these are served separately. It was served like this only for me to sample it but these flavours are otherwise separate.

The Buratta was beautiful and delicious. Everything was fresh and went very well with the Burrata! I wasn’t a big fan of the beetroot though as i generally can’t digest boiled beets πŸ™‚

Then came the small bites, which were a meal in itself and so different than just traditional garlic bread! My favourite amongst the three was the Fire Feta Cheese Bread.

Salted spicy feta covered the wood fired bread and was super!

Ricotta Cheese Bread

The Ricotta Cheese Bread was more like a flat calzone and was bursting with flavours of olive, sundried tomatoes, rosemary and garlic πŸ™‚

Patate Al Forno

The Patate were another great addition! Roasted potato made to perfection with olive oil, parmesan cheese, fresh parsley and chilli flakes.

The wood-fired pizzas after this were crisp and the fact that they have an open wood fire oven and an assembly line where you can make your own pizza, gives you a sense of satisfaction to see how cleanly your pizza is made.

You can choose your own crust, base, toppings and viola! Vegetarians get special treatment too as seen below πŸ™‚ And they have a Gluten Free Base too for all your healthy hoggers πŸ™‚

Indoor space is huge and so you can sit at the tables in front of the assembly line while they make your pizza.

Their ingredients are FRESH and you can feel that once you bite into your Nepolitan Pizza.

Our crusts were Original Nepolitan – Their signature light, thin, soft and chewy crust made in this Woodfire oven.

For the base we chose:

BufalinaΒ – Buffalo Mozarella, Parmigiano Reggiano, Olive Oil, Fresh Basil and further added cherry tomatoes and olives (but i think without these addtions would be great in itself). The crust was crunchyΒ and the buffalo mozarella was fresh and tasty.

Verde – Green Pie with a Pinenut Basil Pesto base, fresh Mozarella, Parmigiano Reggiano. We further added spinach and sundried tomatoes. I am not a big fan of pesto but this pizza tasted delicious. I could have done without the spinach on top however the sundried tomatoes were a great addition for that extra punch.

And the best part, the dessert was the traditional Tiramisu!Β Soft and soaked in coffee, this was a dessert lover’s dream! Inspite of how full we were, we wiped this out in under a minute! Rich layers of mascarpone helped in making it fluffly and super creamy.

They also have Nutella Pizza for those who want to try something unique!

An array of unique drinks (which i haven’t really found anywhere else in Dubai in restaurants based in a mall) were also available, I opted for the caramel Spuma Bionda which was a bit sweet and something like a non alcoholicΒ root beer.

They also have area to Make Your Own Salad and a variety of Pasta options too to choose from.

If you are interested in buying some traditional Italian oils, sauces and sundried tomato jars, they can be bought here.
