Pizza lovers looking to celebrate Burns night should head along to La Favorita on Leith Walk this month.

To celebrate our national bard and one of Scotland’s best known dishes, the restaurant is set to introduce a haggis pizza to their menu.

The 12- inch pizza is topped with a large helping of haggis and includes red onions, sliced potatoes, mozzarella and a drizzle of whisky to complete the meal.

The Burns Night celebratory pizza will be available from La Favorita restaurant on Leith Walk and across La Favorita Delivered venues for in-store, delivery or collection at the price of £13.95 and available from January 13th until February 2nd 2020 (inclusive).

Vittoria Group’s Executive Chef, Spencer Wilson said: “I felt it was important to celebrate this Scottish tradition with a classic haggis pizza but in La Favorita style!

“Using potato and onion works well with the haggis and then – just to lift the flavour a little – a drizzle of whisky at the end. What better way to toast Robbie Burns.”

The award – winning pizzeria and Italian restaurant from Vittoria Group revealed a new look in November last year showcasing a stylish, modern design after an extensive makeover.

The menu also underwent a makeover, with the addition of pasta dishes that balance authentic flavours with modern and distinctive ingredients. These sit alongside classic, rustic Italian meal that will to vegetarians and vegans.

La Favorita on Leith Walk opened in 2005 and quickly became famous for authentic, freshly made pizza cooked in wood-fired ovens – the way Italians believe pizza should be served.

The haggis pizza will be available to order online from 13th January here.
