Rossopomodoro is a chain specialising in the Naples variety of pizza (thin), with over 80 branches around the world. The Covent Garden outpost is delightfully big, and as airy and light as the pizza bases themselves.The dough here is made in the customary way, which involves being dutifully kneaded then tossed into a wood-fired oven.

Although this pizza had no tomato sauce, it did not lack in flavour...
