Rudy's Pizza Napoletana will open their doors on Monday 13th March bringing authentic Neapolitan pizzas to the people of North Leeds. The relaxed neighbourhood pizzeria with over 100 covers, will be situated on Otley Road in the bustling heart of the area offering interior and al-fresco dining.

The popular pizzeria has been serving the perfect and classic Neapolitan pizza since 2015, gaining a cult following from its original Rudy’s in Ancoats, Manchester; with Headingley being their third Leeds pizzeria open seven days a week. Bookings are now open.

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.

Rudy’s dough is made fresh daily using Caputo ‘00’ flour which ferments for at least 24 hours, alongside the best quality ingredients imported from Naples, including San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella.

All accordance to a truly authentic Neapolitan technique, the dough is cooked in a Stefano Ferrara oven for just 60 seconds – resulting in a soft and light pizza with an airy and raised cornicione (the edge or rim of the pizza).

Steve Mutlow, general manager said “We look forward to opening our doors on Otley Road from Monday 13th March. The team have loved serving our Neapolitan pizza in Leeds and we hope this new site will be another welcoming addition for the city.”

Rudy’s Headingley will be open 7 days a week from 12pm – 8pm. Follow @wearerudyspizza on Instagram for updates.
