I had never thought that avocado would go well on a pizza, but after going to Mamma’s Pizza, I can safely say that it tastes incredible.
Situated in the bustling Grassmarket area, Mamma’s is a great place to have lunch or dinner and there is a fantastic selection of different pizza toppings. It’s great a great place to sit outside in the sun and have a bit to eat, or with Scottish weather being as unpredictable as it is, retreat inside and look out the window from the warmth.
The toppings range from the usual fare such as mushrooms or extra cheese (there are four different types, and rather oddly feta goes great with pizza!) and go on to more exotic ones. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could have cactus, or if you have a sweet tooth, you could have chocolate or even marshmallows! Mamma’s is a great place for sharing food, and it would go down excellently if you took your family or friends. The staff are very friendly, and the background music is always something good.
Even if you aren’t a pizza lover, Mamma’s serve other dishes. These are mostly pastas, and I have it on good authority that the lasagne is to die for. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food, and after going once, you’ll find yourself looking forward to returning! I usually plan my trip about a week before going and then look forward to it for the entire week!
