So, we asked around the team to find out where to find the best dine-in pizza places in Leicestershire and of course we had the pineapple on a pizza debate..... who doesn’t!
So, here are our top five...
Martin Bros. Micropizzeria – Clarendon Park, Leicester
This lovely Neapoli eatery scored highly with the Italian members of our head office team.
Pas heads up our bar and loves it for its authentic Naples style and simple but flavoursome ingredients, he wasn’t the only one in the team with Martin Bros. sitting at the top of their list.
The pizza we love: Margherita, with added burrata
Beer match: Tank Lager pairs wonderfully with this topping as it's light, clean and crisp.
Bradgate Arms, Newtown Linford
This fine country pub, next to Leicester's beautiful Bradgate Park was given a big thumbs up by those with children or grandchildren, like Michelle in our office team. What better way to encourage little ones to enjoy a nice walk than to finish it with a delicious pizza, the stone-baked thin-crust pizzas served here do not disappoint.
The pizza we love: The Newton – Ham and pineapple
Beer match: American Pale, the citrus character works well alongside the meat making an interesting combination and the zesty carbonation cuts through the sweetness in the fruit.
Peter Pizzeria, Leicester City Centre
This popular pizza joint, prides itself on its authentic, traditional, Neapolitan pizza and was loved amongst us for its array of quirky toppings. It also got a big thumbs up from the tomato haters amongst us as they let you choose between a tomato or non-tomato base. It seems not everyone in the team is a fan of a tantalising tomato base on their pizza.
Pizza we love: Divola - Tomato sauce, smoked mozzarella spicy salami and fresh chilli for the no saucers amongst us Caprese – Cherry tomato, mozzarella, rocket, Parma ham. Parmesan shavings and olive oil
