We now offer free Wifi in both our Nunhead and West Norwood sites. So you can crack on with whatever you need to crack on with while knocking back a flat white or hoofing down a sourough pizza.
LONDON SOURDOUGH PIZZA & CRAFT BEER
We use predominantly British ingredients and follow the seasons, particularly with our monthly specials.
Our charcuterie is from CANNON & CANNON who are ambassadors for a new wave of British producers creating superb cured meats using animals that have been ethically and sustainably reared.
We believe that superior ingredients make all the difference. Take our tiny, delicate LILLIPUT capers for example or the 35 DAY, DRY AGED RARE BREED BEEF that adds so much more flavour.
We use our sourdough starter (or mother) plus organic British white and rye flour to make our dough. We then leave it to ferment (rise) for at least 48 hours and often more, much longer than normal.
This gives a much deeper flavour and makes it easier to digest as a lot of the “work” to break down the enzymes has already been done before you eat it.
We stretch it by hand and then cook it in our wood fired oven at around 400 degrees. This all results in a really flavoursome dough with a great texture and chew.
There are tomatoes, then there are SAN MARZANO tomatoes and then there are SAN MARZANO DOP tomatoes.
Similar to champange, these must adhere to a strict criteria and must be grown in the San Marzano region. They are pretty much the best tinned tomatoes money can buy.
They are not cheap but give an amazing balance of acidity and sweetness that makes them worth it.
FIOR DI LATTE MOZZARELLA
Contrary to popular belief buffalo mozzarella does not make the best pizzas. What you need is FIOR DI LATTE which is made with cows milk.
We use the freshest we can get our hands on and ours comes from South London. The higher fat content means this behaves perfectly when introduced to the very high heats in our wood fired oven.
It melds with the tomatoes resulting in a pinkish sauce rather than just ending up with lumps of cheese, giving a deliciously balanced mouthful.
WHY FOUR HUNDRED RABBITS?
We love fermentation. The Aztecs also revered the process and worshipped both a goddess of alcohol and a god that discovered fermentation. According to aztec folklore these two got it together one night and created many offspring known as the 400 rabbit gods or centzon totochtin.
These rabbit gods lived the good life, constantly going to parties and getting into mischief, alcohol was involved more often than not.
At Four Hundred Rabbits we celebrate fermentation and two of the best things it has given us, pizza and beer. We think eating and drinking with friends and family should always be fun, and about good times. Much like the 400 rabbit gods did.
