Basili – Finchley Road (Takeaway)

It was one of those Fridays where I just couldn’t imagine cooking. My work permit renewal application had just been approved, and I thought a bit of a celebration was in order. Maybe my flatmate would want to go out to dinner! But then it started raining. Hard. And the idea of even walking down the street seemed reprehensible.

Delivery pizza was the only solution.

We decided to go with Basili and their Pizza Napoli: tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, italian spicy pepperoni, roasted chorizo, olives, prosciutto crudo and basilico pesto sauce. Om nom nom. The pizzas came in three sizes: 10″, 13″ and 18″. We went with the large.

Being a Friday, we knew the delivery would take a while – probably an hour, maybe more. With the rain, we were prepared for even worse. But above all odds, the pizza was delivered in under 45 minutes.

We opened up the box, and gasped. It turns out 18″ is a really f’ing huge pizza.

^^ We put a battery, a pair of tweezers and a 50p coin in the box to show the relative scale ^^

And the taste? It was pizza – it had chorizo, it had pesto. By those points alone, it had to be good. Not the best I’ve ever had, by far. But it hit the spot. And it was definitely gone in one sitting :)
