Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza has announced it will bring authentic Neapolitan pizza to Sheffield in June 2022.
Rudy’s Sheffield will be a relaxed neighbourhood pizzeria situated at the former Lonestar Site on Division Street, in the bustling heart of the City Centre.
Creating light and classic Neapolitan pizza since 2015, with the original Rudy’s situated in Ancoats, Manchester, the pizzeria has since opened sites in Leeds, Greater Manchester, Soho, Liverpool and Birmingham.
Born out of passion for pizza, Rudy’s follows the authentic Neapolitan tradition of pizza making, serving classic recipes such as Marinara, Margherita and Calabrese – all originating from Naples, the birthplace of pizza.
Believing Neapolitan pizza to be the best in the world, Rudy’s dough is made fresh daily using Caputo ‘00’ flour which ferments for at least 24 hours, alongside the best quality ingredients imported twice a week from Naples, including San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella.
For Rudy’s, it’s all about the pizza and following the authentic Neapolitan technique. The dough is made fresh on-site every day and cooked in wood-fired ovens for just 60 seconds, all in accordance with Neapolitan pizza tradition, leaving it soft and floppy with a leopard patterned cornichon (crust).
Victoria, General Manager of Rudy’s Sheffield said: “We’re really excited to bring Rudy’s to Sheffield and get to know the local community. It won’t be long before we are able to fire up the oven and serve delicious Neapolitan pizza. As a team, we can’t wait to become part of city life.”
The original Rudy’s pizzeria opened in Ancoats, Manchester in 2015, with Rudy’s Sheffield the 11th member of Rudy’s famiglia.
To mark the occasion Rudy’s is giving you the chance to try a Neapolitan pizza on the house. There will be 5,000 pizzas up for grabs, all you have to do for your chance to get yours is sign up on their website and they’ll be in touch closer to the opening date – rudyspizza.co.uk/sheffield.
