ECO Pizzeria

Eco Pizzeria is one of Clapham’s local favourites.

It was established on Clapham High Street over 20 years ago and has created a fiercely loyal following from locals and visitors alike.

The family owned restaurant has been recently renovated, with its walls being taken back to their original red brick shell dating back to when the building was originally built. The combination of modern and rustic interior design creates a welcoming atmosphere with Italian roots present throughout. At the heart of the restaurant is a handmade, wood burning oven decorated in brightly coloured orange tiles. This guards the open plan kitchen adding to the authentic pizzeria feel.

ECO ECO But pizza certainly isn’t the only thing Eco is cooking up. ECO Homemade rosemary and chilli oils top each table to allow a custom made burst of flavour to be added by each diner.

This homemade chilli oil filled with dried chilli flakes really packs a punch. Although it is absolutely delicious, taste at your own risk as it is seriously spicy! ECO

I first tried the restaurant’s special of pork cheek with mashed potato & red wine jus.
The meat was sumptuous and tender with incredible flavour combined with creamy mashed potatoes.
An incredibly decadent dish that was far from anything I’ve tried at any other pizza place in London.  ECO

To accompany such a hearty dish, I thought a fresh, light salad would go nicely.
Summer dieters, look away now as this was far from your couple calorie dinner dish.

An asparagus and poached egg salad with baked sourdough topped with melted mozzarella, pancetta, baked mozzarella wrapped with San Daniele, mixed leaves and house dressing was a naughty but delicious combination.
The ingredients paired perfectly and the flavour was outstanding.

A proper salad if I’ve ever seen one!

Sitting in the presence of a roaring, wood burning oven makes it almost impossible to not order a cheesy, hot pizza. The combination of smoked aubergine and pepper with burrata, baked garlic and basil pesto was simply irresistible.

Fresh, melted burrata is my dream pizza topping and it went beautifully with the smoked aubergine and peppery basil pesto.
Dare I say, this may be my new favourite pizza combination.

ECO ECO Although I was filled to the brim, it was insisted I try the restaurant’s best dessert of triple chocolate mousse.
Having put up a real fight as I always do when it comes to dessert, I gave in.

Layers of milk, dark and white chocolate mousse where beautifully spread on top of a biscuit base and topped with a tart, sweet strawberry.
Several spoonfuls of this was more than enough as it was incredibly rich, but so good.

ECO Overall, this was a great find.
A cheerful little local spot with great food and lovely interior.

If you go, promise me you’ll try the smoked aubergine & burrata pizza and tell me what you think!
