D.O.C Pizza and Mozzarella Bar has been on my radar for a while now. I'm not sure where I first heard about it but I know that I always say I will visit it when I'm in the Lygon area but inevitably forgot. I'm glad that I finally tried it as I will be a returning customer for sure. Unlike some of the other supposed Italian places along Lygon, the pizzas here are stunningly simple and delicious, tasting like the thin crust pizzas that I had in Italy on my holidays recently.
We had the Assortment of Cured Meat Platter to start. A large wooden board help an assortment of prosciuttos, bresaola, salami and ham were accompanied by a beautiful mozzarella. I really liked all the cured meats and the salty meats went perfectly with the creamy mozzarella.
A simple Porcini Mushroom Pizza was elevated with some truffle oil. The crisp base was a highlight, in contrast to some soggy bases of pizzas from other places.
My favourite part of every meal, dessert, was a major highlight. The Goats Cheese Tiramisu sounds strange but was extremely delicious. It was so smooth and creamy and one of the best Tiramisu I've eaten.
The service was simple and relaxed, with the waiters giving their most Italian service, constantly saying "prego". The ambiance was equally relaxed, with convivial diners enjoying their night. I would definitely be returning to sample some of the other pizzas as they all looked extremely delicious.
