From Mondays to Thursdays, La Strada has an irresistible 1-for-1 pizza takeaway promotion. A pizza typically costs about 25 bucks so you're getting 2 pizzas for about 25 bucks. It's really a no-brainer. The BF and I have been wanting to try this out since I found out about the offer, so after running errands one evening, we decided to head to La Strada to takeaway their pizzas.
We got the Prosciutto di Parma e Rucola ($26), with mozzarella, tomato, parma ham, rucola and shaved parmigiano. La Strada will pack the toppings separately in a plastic container so the rucola and parma ham remain cool and crisp. This was divine. I love how the slightly bitter rucola balanced out the saltiness of the parma ham. And boy, were they generous with the parma ham, look at those gorgeous ribbons of cured meats!
The Prosciutto cotto di Funghi ($24) with Italian gammon ham and a trio of mushrooms (oyster, porcini and button varieties) was classically simple but very yummy as well. Mushrooms were fresh and the shaved premium ham was salty and good.
I'll definitely be back.
Update 18 July 2012: La Strada has closed its shutters.
