Antica Pizzeria E Cucina located at 226 Morphett St, Adelaide is celebrating their new menu item by giving away 100 FREE Pizza Pockets (Meatball and Eggplant Parmigiana) on June 8th 2017!
Here at Adelaide Food Central, we just had to rush in and take a look at their new take on an Italian classic. Antica is introducing four kinds of Pizza Pockets into their menu, Meatball, Pulled Pork, Fried Calamari and Zucchini, and Eggplant Parmigiana.
All of the pizza pockets are stuffed to the brim with fine and unique ingredients in Antica’s famous pizza base pocket. The pizza bases are soft and fluffy, with a slight chewiness any pizza aficionado will enjoy. Crispy in all the right places, the pockets make these $10 takeaway options an easy lunch to grab on the go, as well as being well presented and a great size to fill you up!
For the first Pizza Pocket… Pulled Pork! The Pulled Pork inside has a slight smokiness to it, and is tender, succulent and easily falls apart. The red cabbage in the dish adds a needed depth of crunch to the pocket, topped with light and refreshing mint.
The Fried Calamari and Zucchini delightfully merges Italian cooking with lightly battered calamari that’s been fried to perfection. Rocket is mixed throughout the pocket that provides a fresh balance to the meal; mixed in with a slightly heated mayo that really makes this seafood combination work in harmony.
The very classic Italian Meatball Pizza Pocket is filled with well-seasoned meatballs and a variety of cheeses. The dense meatballs have a high meat ratio that works well with the tomato rich napolitana sauce, the sharp shavings of parmesan and the chewy cheese encased in the pocket.
Last on the pocket menu is the Eggplant Parmigiana. Thin slices of delicate eggplant are wedged between thick slices of buffalo mozzarella for an amazing Italian vegetarian experience. The basil in the parmigiana adds a burst of mintiness with every bite.
These pockets are quick to eat, filling and perfectly portable for those CBD workers looking for a twist on the classic Italian lunch. The Pizza Pockets are $10 for takeaway, located at Antica Pizzeria 226 Morphett St, Adelaide.
