At Padrone we have elevated pizza making to an art form.
Hand built for us in Verona, Italy, our wood-fired pizza oven is at the heart of our creations.
We use the finest Italian ingredients - 00 flour, homemade tomato sugo and 100 percent mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella.
Our slow-rising dough is hand stretched and baked at up to 500c to create a thin and light pizza.
It's said pizza dates back to the 5th century BC when Greek settlers founded Neapolis 'New Town' and brought with them 'pita' bread.
It evolved into pizza - a peasant meal in Naples where bread baked on stones in a fire was used as a plate and topped with anything from cheese to olives.
In 1889, Italian Queen Margherita tried her subjects recipe and loved it so much that a restaurant owner made a special pizza in her honour.
He topped focaccia bread with red tomatoes, white mozzarella cheese and green basil to match the colours of the Italian flag.
The classic 'Pizza Margherita’ was born and the world's love of pizza began
