Authentic Italian pizzeria launches in UK

Radio Alice, named after an Italian pirate radio station, is a new pizzeria that's just opened in London's Hoxton Square.

The brand has been brought to the UK by brothers Salvatore and Matteo Aloe, who already have five well-respected restaurants in Italy.

The pizza dough is made from mother yeast and ancient stoneground flour, and once the base is cooked, it's sliced and then the toppings are added. Their style of pizza was dubbed Berberem, which is the name of the Aloe's Italian chain.

The brothers have teamed up with Emma King, a co- founder of Gail’s Bakery, to add a modern twist to traditional, organic and slow food ingredients. There's a short menu of piccoli (small bites), like Burrata, black pepper, oregano, and Fennel, orange, caciocavallo salad. Pizzas comes with combinations toppings such as Gorgonzola, speck, honey, fiordilatte, walnuts, and Prosciutto di Parma, burrata,orange infused oil, fiordilatte.

For sweet treats there's Bourbon vanilla gelato, anise biscuit, and Mandarin, tonka bean sorbet.

The wines are Italian and organic, including a bag and box wine from Libera Terra. Also, there's the brothers' own beer, La Bassa, made in collaboration with Brew Fist in Italy.
