Pizza may have originated in Italy, and America may have taken them to the next level with supersize slices and whole pizzas bigger than a dining room table, but here in the UK, they certainly are a firm favourite. And there is nothing better than a traditional stonebaked pizza.
Why We Love Pizza
From a young age, many people have been ingrained that pizza is a great food to enjoy. A slice of heaven some will say. But why do we love it so much?
There is a scientific reason as to why we love pizza, this is serotonin. While it might be seen as overloading with carbs, these carbs actually promote serotonin production, which is the feel-good hormone. So scientifically, pizza is good for you.
The second reason is that it comes with a wide variety of different toppings. So whether you are pro pineapple on pizza or not, there is always a topping that will suit your taste buds.
They are easy to share. Even though some of you may not want to share! You can always order a selection of pizzas, and sides, then share with everyone so you get a taste of everything.
Why Stonebaked Pizza Is Best
Thin crust, thick crust, stuffed crust, cheese crust, double decadence there are so many options for the base of your pizza.
Many of the pizza’s that we have here in the UK are sent through an oven on a conveyor belt. Cooking as they travel through, before being tossed into a box and delivered to your door. Others are thrown into an oven on a round baking tray with little holes in the base. Not at Littleover Lodge they aren’t.
Here at The Littleover Lodge, we have invested in a fabulous stone oven, ensured that our chefs are trained, and developed some incredible taste combinations. Why? Because stonebaked is best, that’s why.
So why is it better than the rest? The hot stone surface allows for an even cook across the base of the pizza, and throughout its core. Evenly cooking the thin dough, and melting the cheese to perfection. Is your mouth watering yet? Ours is.
