Sheffield Best Pizza Spots
With National Pizza Day coming up on February 9th, we scoured the streets of Sheff to get a slice of the action. Here’s our pick of five of the best.
Picture House Social
Importing the finest ingredients from Italy, PHS keep things simple with just a few core ingredients: San Marzano tomatoes, 00 grade flour, and fior di latte cheese, finished with fresh basil. Blasted for mere minutes in a 500°C oven, they believe it’s all you need to serve up pizza perfection. And whilst you can’t go wrong with their classic Margherita, other popular favourites include the nduja and salsiccia Napoli pizza or their prosciutto, rocket and balsamic reduction offering. Add a portion of arancini or meatballs to your order for a veritable Italian feast.
Nether Edge Pizza Co.
You may have sampled some of Nether Edge’s finest at the likes of Headley’s Café, The Norfolk Arms, The Cross Scythes, Horse and Jockey or The Greystones, but it’s at their residency spot and home of Peddler (92 Burton Road) that exciting things are happening this year. Over the past year they have been renovating a building down there and have now been granted a restaurant, collection and delivery license. With a special Italian wood fired oven on its way, there will be more chance to enjoy their Sheff themed menu, from Crookes Crab to Meersbrook Meaty, Heeley Hot and beyond.
Made with the best Italian Caputo flour and slow-proved for a minimum of 20 hours, the pizzas at Proove in Broomhill are baked in a wood-fired oven to create the perfect Napoli style crust, known as ‘leopardo cornicione’. Favourites include the verdure – courgette ribbons, roasted peppers, red onion, olives, tomatoes and mozzarella, or the bel paese, which combines ricotta with fior di latte mozzarella, fresh cherry tomatoes and shaved parmigiano reggiano, dressed with homemade basil infused oil, and topped with prosciutto, for that little bit extra.
Craft & Dough
An arm of the award-winning Milestone group, Craft & Dough make use of the restaurant’s allotments to create innovative pizza concoctions. From a seasonal pesto, charred leeks, fennel and brie topping, to spiced lamb, harissa and fresh tomatoes with pomegranate seeds and labneh; you know you’re in for something special at any one of their three venues. Try for yourself at their Kelham Island, Eccy Road or Campo Lane venues.
Whether you want to create your own from their roster of veggie, cheese, meat and fish toppings, share a platter of mini pizzas with pals, opt for one of their hot and spicy creations like the Kingston 5 (jerk chicken, red onion, reggae reggae sauce and mozzarella) or simply chow down on a classic Neapolitan or Florentina; Bloo88 have all bases covered with their jam-packed pizza menu. And don’t forget to check out their starters and sides – we recommend the Stromboli morsels, comprising of hand-pulled dough stuffed with chorizo, prosciutto and salami, served with sour cream and sweet chilli.
