Pizza Fella on Vicar Lane opened just two years ago, in December 2016. Having perfected his authentic pizza-making skills at a pizza school in Naples, Head chef and owner, Miles Robinson decided to bring his authentic wood-fired pizzas to the city of Leeds.
Originally, Miles made and sold his neapolitan pizzas from a van by touring the north and satisfying hungry crowds at regional events, festivals and celebrations. Now, he has a permanent home for his business in the centre of Leeds and it really is the place to go if you’re a die hard fan of this Italian classic.
Pizza Fella’s primary focus is on creating and serving exceptionally good quality pizza made using traditional methods and locally sourced toppings where possible. This is not a swanky pizzeria so don’t expect candlelight and starched napkins. It’s a relaxed, no frills restaurant in Leeds, offering a superb selection of freshly prepared pizzas served alongside a range of handpicked Italian wines and beers.
All of their pizza bases are made using just 4 ingredients – caputo flour, yorkshire water, salt and yeast before being appropriately topped and cooked in their traditional wood-fired oven. Their menu is considerably shorter than those of the large pizzeria chains. Pizza Fella serve just nine varieties of neapolitan pizza but the menu has been carefully thought out to ensure there is something to suit everyone’s taste and most dietary requirements.
