Mad Pizza is an Italian pizza and pasta restaurant situated in Potts Point. Famed for their thin crust gourmet pizza with premium ingredients, it is typically healthier than your average pizza place. With cute gingham tablecloth and a pleasant, inviting atmosphere - there is no reason not to give Mad a chance. Featured in this review is the bruschetta di pepperonato, the funghi pizza, panacotta and caramel mousse. Unfortunately, I didn't have room to try the pasta.
The bruschetta di pepperonato was different to your usual tomato and herbs with olive oil combination, but tasted great with roasted peppers, onions, feta and herbs. Enough to share between two people, or for one very hungry person, the serving size was ample.
For the main, I decided on a funghi pizza. The smell was delicious and the taste more than matched it. Some of the ingredients included chunky mushrooms, feta, rocket leaves and it had parmesan cheese on top. Satisfying, the thin crust made it fill me up just enough to leave some room for dessert.
The panacotta had a unique texture to it. It was more liquid than the thick texture I'm used to. The strawberries tasted fresh and what tasted like chocolate wafer infused deliciously and made for a delectable dessert.
Topped with a scoop of icecream, this caramel mousse was of a soft and fluffy texture. The taste was not overpoweringly sweet, but balanced.
Overall, Mad Pizza was a pleasant surprise of a discovery at Potts Point. Go there with a friend or even your partner. There are romantic spots available within the establishment. The bruschetta alone is worth going for, as is the service.
