Hello and happy Sunday guys! I’m back with another foodie post. I am loving eating in various places and then writing these mini guides. Today’s Manchester post is all about pizza. Over the past couple of months I’ve visited a few cool pizza spots across the city. Pizza for me is an easy no-fuss food choice and I just cant say no to pizza!
Starting with a night at Mackie Major back in August, where Honest Crust pairing different pizzas with wines selected by Reserve Wines. We went with friends and between the four of us we shared six very unique pizzas, while tasting three different wines that complemented the pizza flavours. I have to say some of these pizzas had some really unique toppings that really stood out. Two of my favourites were the white wine & clams pizza and the dessert style pizzas that had blackberries, ricotta and peanuts topping. This was a one-off night, but since it was such a success they are putting on another night, this time pairing beer and pizza with Blackjack brewery. I would highly recommend going if you can.
This is a new place that’s only just opened up in the Northern Quarter, near the cat cafe. They are the first independent pizzeria in Manchester that is run by Italians, four friends. The menu is very simple and classic, it’s split into 2 sections - pizzas with a tomato base and pizzas without the tomato base, Rosse or Bianche! Me and Joe had one from each section and shared them to try something from each menu. Both were so delicious, light and tasted amazing. For me this place tops any of the other pizza places I’ve tried so far. I would suggest trying this place out soon before everyone finds out and the wait for pizza becomes like Rudy’s.
So many people suggest Rudy’s when you ask where to go for pizza in Manchester. It’s number one for most people and it didn’t disappoint. I had a girly evening out a few weeks ago and pizza seemed the easiest and tastiest thing to eat, plus I really wanted to try Rudy’s after being highly recommend. I nearly always order a Margherita as you can’t go wrong with a classic like that. The pizza at Rudy’s had a light base, was soft and tasted like a margherita should. All the other girls enjoyed their pizzas and we even took doggy bags home as the pizzas are so big. I would highly recommend this place but be prepared to wait up to an hour to be seated, once seated though and ordered the pizzas come super quick. You can also bring your dogs along :)
Last on my pizza list but not least is Crazy Pedros. This place is by far the most fun with a character called Pedro branded across the building. The pizza toppings are pretty crazy, some you wouldn’t think to put on a pizza like mini hamburgers, fried chicken and waffle to name just two of the different toppings. As I was only ordering it by the slice I went for the classic Margherita again and a coke, as you can see in these photos. As I only had a small taster of what they have to offer I’m planning on going back to try the Pizza Nachos, which has a whole pizza chopped up and thrown into the nachos. Sounds amazing!
I’ve loved tasting all the various pizza, it is one of my favourite things to eat for ease and taste. If you have any suggestions of any other places to try, not just pizza places let me know.
