Rudy’s has the announced the arrival of its latest restaurant, which will open in Stockton Heath this spring.
The new pizzeria will be the seventh in the Rudy’s portfolio and seems to be part of a new approach for owners Mission Mars of opening in suburban locations.
Previously, the focus had been on opening city centre restaurants in other large cities. The original Rudy’s opened in Ancoats in 2015, which was followed by another one on Peter Street in 2018, and three more sites in Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds.
Similar to their most recent opening in Sale, which opened towards the end of last year, Rudy’s in Stockton Heath will be more of a neighbourhood pizzeria.
On the menu will be Rudy’s authentic Neapolitan style pizza, including favourites like Marinara, Margherita and Calabrese.
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.
The pizzas are cooked in specially built wood fired ovens for just 60 seconds in accordance with Neapolitan pizza tradition, leaving it soft and floppy with a leopard patterned cornichon (crust).
Beth Sinclair, General Manager of Rudy’s Stockton Heath said: “I’m really excited about living in Stockton Heath and getting to know the area more.
“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 meet the locals and neighbours and become part of town life.”
