UK Pizza Guide

Pizza is loved the world over. But is pizza exceptional the world over? It depends on where you look. These days, it is essentially a universal topic. There are mediocre pizzerias everywhere and there are outstanding pizzerias everywhere. So anywhere you go, you can find a pizza shop to suit your tastes. England, for instance, has several exceptional shops in various cities. To name a few, Brighton has Pizzaiola, Cambridge has Cherrybox Pizza, Trowbridge has Pasquales, London has Franco Manca and Bournemouth has Vesuvio.

Most of these have some very original and perhaps what some may call, odd
combinations. Pizzaiola`s menu is a good example of this. Their "Al Tonna" pizza includes tomato sauce, oregano, mozzarella cheese, olives, garlic and tuna. Their "Marinara" is identical to the "All Tonna" but with the addition of prawns and nchovies. However, they also implement more familiar topping combinations such as the Hawaiian with ham, mozzarella, pineapple and tomato sauce and the Pepperoni, or "Meat Feast".

Cherrybox Pizza has a few more familiar options, although they also have equally less mainstream menu items as well. One that is particularly unique is the "Peking Duck", topped with shredded cucumber, mozzarella cheese, shredded duck and Chinese hoi sin sauce. Another unique item is the "Moroccan", made with a hummus base and topped with shredded lamb seasoned with cumin, raisins, mint yogurt sauce, red onions and mozzarella cheese.
 

While Pasquales is specially known for its excellent garlic bread, Franco Manca is known for its sourdough crust pizzas. Their menus are seasonal and their summer options and pie names, are simpler. Their most distinctive pies include the "Number 3", with buffalo ricotta cheese, courgettes and basil with their organic specialty "Franco and Lloyd Somerset Pecorino" and the "Number 4" with buffalo ricotta cheese, home cured Gloucester Old Spot ham and wild mushrooms.


Vesuvio distinguishes its daytime menu from its nighttime menu, with a larger variety of pizzas on the nighttime menu. Unlike the others, they serve a full menu with pasta and side dishes. They share Pizzaiola`s Marinara pie, along with a couple of others that overlap with other distinguished pizzerias. However, they offer a unique "Pizza Vulcano" with mozzarella cheese, tomato, spicy Italian sausage, olives and the option of either dried or fresh chili. The "Pizza Parma" is also unique, featuring prosciutto, wild rocket, shaved Parmesan, cherry tomatoes, olives and fresh basil. There is also the "Pizza Paesana" with tomato, onion, mushrooms and egg.

As you can see, specialty pizzerias are not limited to Italy. You do not have to go far in the UK for unique or "standardized" delicious pizza.

Those looking to enter the pizza industry can even gather inspiration from these pizzerias, simply by viewing these recipes online, though tasting them is a finer experience. You can even search for a catering equipment supplier online.

Whether you are just a pizza enthusiast or looking to enter the business, finding delicious pizza can be a quick click away.
