This Is As Tasty As Pizza Can Get!

Umami is known as the fifth flavour (the others being bitterness, sweetness, saltiness and sourness). It is best described as savouriness and is prevalent in anything from anchovies, parmesan, mushrooms, tomatoes, cured meats and much more. While largely unheard of in the west a couple of decades ago, it was already well understood and thoroughly explored in various Asian cuisines - particularly Japanese food. 

For our Umami-Bomb pizza, we have gone all out on umami-rich ingredients. We have added an anchovy sauce to our passata, mixed parmesan with mozzarella for the top and added serrano ham and a splash of mushroom ketchup on top of that (Worcester Sauce would be a good replacement if you didn't have mushroom ketchup). To contrast with all this, there are a few sweet caramelised onions, chillis and capers, to balance all the salty, rich flavour. 

Low-Calorie Pizza

Low-Calorie Pizza With Maximum Flavour

As you can imagine, this is a flavour sensation - hitting your tastebuds from every angle. It's adaptable too... if you don't like anchovies, you can leave them out -maybe add a little more parmesan to keep up the intensity of the umami hit. 

If you are looking for something a bit different, but that still makes TOTAL sense, you've got to give this pizza a try!
