Denmark might be better known for its open sandwiches than its pizzas, but that hasn’t stopped Copenhagen-based pizzeria Mother building up a loyal Scandi following. Billing itself as a simple, Neapolitan pizzeria, the folks at Mother serve up wood-fired sourdough slices made with purified seawater in the base (it makes them lighter, apparently). And now that feather-light salty sourdough is on its way over to London – set to touch down in Battersea Power Station, to be precise.
Mother’s first outlet outside of Denmark (AKA the Mothership), the London menu will feature tried and tested favourites. We’re already lusting after an organic sausage and porcini number called the Pizza Porcella, and a little fella called Burning Love – made with potatoes, fried onions and røget spæk (that's Danish smoky bacon, FYI). Carbs on carbs and bacon? We’re definitely on board.
Mother will be at Circus West Village at Battersea Power Station. Opening mid-July. For details of Mother’s opening date, see @Mother_ldn.
