Pizza Fella

After a long break from blog writing I am back! What better way to kick things off again than with a blog about possibly my favourite food- pizza! I’m a sucker for a good Neapolitan pizza and have tried a fair few, with my love for it starting after going to Pizza Pilgrims in Covent Garden. But I’m always looking for new ones to sample. Being based in Leeds for university means I have had many pizzas from ‘Rudys’ which have been amazing every time , but I wanted to broaden my pizza horizons. So I tried a new restaurant this week called Pizza Fella, located in Leeds City Centre, and it did not disappoint.

The restaurant itself had a chilled, stripped back vibe which I loved and being able to see at the pizza oven from our table was a bonus. I went for the salami Napoli pizza, with a San Marzano tomato base, Fior de Latte and thin, circular slices of salame, basil and extra virgin olive oil. The key to a great Neapolitan pizza is the quality of the ingredients and this is where this pizza excelled. When researching Pizza Fella before I visited I was really impressed by the effort they put in to buying authentic Italian ingredients to use on their pizzas, with their San Marzano tomatoes being grown in Campania and their Fior de Latte originating local to Naples. The taste of these authentic ingredients is what really shone for me. The San Marzano tomato base provided perfect sweetness and the Fior de Latte was both milky and acidic. The salame had a beautiful fennel flavour and the oil it released through cooking had a rich flavour that spread across the pizza. Overall, it was amazing and it challenges Rudy’s for the best Neapolitan pizza in Leeds City Centre…

I would strongly recommend for everyone to go out and try some different Neapolitan pizzas. They truly are the best pizzas and even the simple Margherita is enough to blow your mind and make it extremely difficult to return to a Dominoes.

Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks as I am back posting more meal ideas (with students in mind) that are both delicious and affordable as well as looking into the history of some of our favourite foods!
