Our Must-Try Pizza Topping Ideas
Of course, you have come to Murati’s to seek out the best pizza topping – after all, we are known for our delicious, freshly made and prepared pizzas! So, we have put together a list of our favourite pizza topping ideas to get your taste buds tingling and give you some food for thought.
As all pizzas at Murati’s are made fresh, you can add or remove toppings to your prefered taste, and we love creating weird and wonderful customised pizzas! Take a look at our favourites, and why not head into one of our restaurants in Milton Keynes to give them a try?
By far, the most popular types of pizza toppings are ones that involve meat, and with a wide selection, we don’t blame you! From the delicious parma ham to spicy salami and much more, there are an abundance of meaty creations you can enjoy. When adding meat to your pizza, it is important to beautifully compliment the flavours with chilli, garlic, onion and even more meat! For example, spicy chicken and beef go down a treat, especially when paired with another layer of heat from jalapeños.
We know your tastebuds will be tingling at the thought of pizza, so let’s dive into the best meat pizza toppings you will ever have!
1. The Luganica: Italian Sausage, Garlic, Spinach & Chillis
The best way to get the full taste of Italian cuisine is to try out Italian sausage on your pizza. An Italian sausage is a pork sausage that has been seasoned with various herbs, with the primary ingredient being fennel. Depending on the recipe, Italian sausage can be spicy or mild, so be sure to ask our team if you’re unsure what type of Italian sausage we have! To complement the herbs and flavours in the sausage, we highly recommend chillis, as it can bring out the herbs and spices in the sausage even more. Toning down the spice, we enjoy adding sauteed garlic spinach onto the pizza for a contrasting flavour that packs a punch. You can try your hand at cooking up your own Italian sausage using this fantastic recipe from The Daring Gourmet!

Our classic calzone is brimming with signature Italian ingredients and served with a pomodoro dip; a traditional sauce created using tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and a dash of sugar to balance the flavours.
