Wowsers, what a year!
At least Ladro & Ladro TAP will be open everyday except the main public holidays, right through the holiday season. To be be frank, without all your support, we’re not certain we’d have made it to Christmas this year – so thank you. Thank you for supporting us through takeaway only, buying goods from our Ladro Supermarket & Bottleshop, and most of all for dining with us the last six weeks. We’re so glad to be back doing what we love and can’t wait til 2021 ticks over.
Have a safe, feast filled and laughter riddled holiday with all your favourite people – but if COVID restrictions are keeping you apart, just know we’ll be thinking of you.
Lots of love,
Vegan mozzarella at Ladro.
Who doesn’t love pizza? Stupid question, of course everyone does. But for some of us, a delicious cheesy pizza is a disaster waiting to happen, for others omitting dairy is simply a lifestyle choice. Now those who can’t eat dairy and those who choose not to, can enjoy feasting on a Ladro pizza without missing out….on the chesse!
Ladro has introduced an amazing handmade vegan mozzarella to the menu, available in both Fitzroy and Prahran for your pizza feasting pleasure.
What’s the cheese?
Traditional mozzarella is made from buffalo milk and cows milk, hand formed into milky balls of curd – when fresh it’s hard not to eat them like apples! Okay, so vegan mozzarella it’s not made from buffalo or cows milks and doesn’t have that same stringy, stretchy, cheesiness we all love, but we reckon it’s the next best thing to the real deal. Our vegan mozzarella is soy based and melts like real cheese with the consistency of real mozzarella. Queen Margherita would be quietly chuffed and happily serve our vegan mozzarella on her namesake pizza.
If you want to experiment making your own vegan cheese, take a look at Julie Piatt’s book “This Cheese is Nuts”.
Feed Me Vegan Menus?
Ladro can also offer vegan Feed Me Menus based on our extremely popular Feed Me $45, $55 and $65 per head options. Simply inform us when you book your next function or event at Ladro and we will devise a seasonal menu for your entire group. Our pizza dough is vegan, as long as you are ok with yeast. We don’t use any animal products in preparation of the Ladro pizza dough and embrace traditional slow proving methods develop our award winning Roman style pizzas. Roman pizzas, unlike their Napoli cousins, are thinner and crispier with an ‘al dente cornicione’, or firm to the bite pizza edge/ crust.
Gluten Free Pizza
We also offer gluten free pizza at Ladro in Fitzroy and Prahran. Our gluten free pizza dough is made in the same traditional method as our conventional pizzas, with yeast and a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, from soya, tapioca, corn and rice flours. We introduced gluten free pizzas 6 years ago at Ladro due to the high incidence of gluten intolerance amongst the Italian population. So if you happen to be a gluten free vegan, we’ve got all the bases covered!
