It's Pizza Week at HUNTERhunter!
Well it's a HUNTERhunter self-proclaimed pizza week, and that's as good a reason as any to write an article about pizza, and pizza alone!
I LOVE pizza. I mean, what's not to love? It starts with a good base and then pretty much adding whatever you like to it! Pepperoni, mushrooms, goat's cheese, pumpkin, prosciutto, rocket, maple syrup, tomatoes, olives…ok I'm getting a little carried away. Can you tell I haven't eaten lunch yet?
It's my ultimate favourite food and with all the pizza places currently in Newcastle it seems that I am not alone. Where is your favourite place in Newcastle to get pizza?
Here are a few of our favs:
These guys are the real MVP's of Newcastle when it comes to authentic Neapolitan pizzas. It's all about bringing the food back to basics with an emphasis on a few key Italian ingredients.
Set within the inner streets of Cooks Hill, The Ori as it's known, is the perfect place for a casual few beers with friends and some delicious tasting pizza!
The name means "Mother Dough" in Spanish and is the creation of two teachers who met whilst working in Spain. You will find Masa Madre in Wickham, and don't forget to bring a bottle of vino with you as this place is also BYO.
Pizza Kiosk- Merewether Surfhouse
What better way to end the day than sitting beachside with an Italian wood fire pizza and a bevy in hand. Look at that view!
Crinitis are stepping the whole pizza game up in Newcastle with 0.5, 1, 2, and even 3 metre pizzas and basically every different topping option under the sun.
This place had me at their interiors and was quickly cemented as my new favourite place after trying their Four Formaggi pizza which includes a crème fraiche base, Italian buffalo mozzarella, gorgonzola dolce, feta and grated parmigiana…holy delicious!
This industrial style interior is the perfect combination of sophistication meets relaxation. Whether you decide to sit in the restaurant or enjoy a drink in the bar side over a pizza, you can't go wrong.
