Does anyone really need encouragement to eat pizza? Someone thought we did and so just like that, pizza month was created! Originally started in the 1980’s, pizza month brings people together to celebrate their love of the delicious food and here at Littleover Lodge, we couldn’t be more excited! We believe that pizza is for every occasion! Comforting, warm, filling and just so so good, we just can’t get enough pizza. We love pizza so much that we have our own pizza restaurant in Derbyshire attached to our popular hotel.

Even 2000 years ago cheese made everything better. However, pizza, as we know it today, is a result of the discovery of the tomato in the Americans and then its return to Europe in the 16th Century.
The conventional format of pizza that we know and love today started in Naples when tomato sauce was added to flatbread. Not surprisingly pizza’s popularity escalated quickly and was almost exclusive sold from open-air stands and pizza bakeries. A traditional that some still keep today
