1 Prince Edward Road in Berwick-upon-Tweed has the honour of being the home of the town’s finest pizzeria. This is Pizzaiolo, where the art of the perfect pizza is realised one pie at a time. There is something distinctive about a Pizzaiolo pizza, it always has the authentic flavour of Italy in it. There is an art to making perfect pizzas, an art which is practised by the chefs at Pizzaiolo. The pizza dough is left to slow-rise for a minimum of twenty hours. Then the finest ingredients, not least the sauce of fresh tomatoes with fresh basil and a topping of tantalizing buffalo mozzarella, are placed on the base and baked in a traditional stone oven. Only the best ingredients are used at Pizzaiolo.

Order your favourite pizza medium, large or square. Choose from a wide variety of gourmet pizzas. Perhaps the moreish meatiness of The Godfather will convert you to the delightful combination of homemade meatballs with red onions, sun-dried tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and a hoisin glaze. Have the Padana, a celebrated vegetarian pizza, and savour the melding of goats cheese, spinach and caramelised onions, finished with a garlic oil and balsamic glaze. From Sweet Chilli and BBQ pizzas to classics like the Napoli, there is something for the adventurous foodie and the purist alike.

Pizzas are the main attraction at Pizzaiolo, but there is much more coming out of this kitchen of inspired chefs. The salads are delightful, bursting with fresh flavours and brought together with Pizzaiolo’s own balsamic and olive oil dressings. Have side of Dough Balls topped with garlic butter and a lip-smacking sauce of your choosing. There are also Pepperoni and Mozzarella Dough Balls, and, for a sweet after, Milk and White Chocolate Dough Balls. Other side dishes include mini pizzas and French fries.

Save some space for dessert. Have the Bananarama, a banana and mascarpone combination with caramelised honey on pizza dough. Or maybe you’re just in the mood for some toothsome Banoffee Pie ice-cream or Irn-Bru sorbet.

Pizzaiolo’s carefully selected wine and beer list, will have you sipping just the right grapes from regional Italy, whether you want red, white or rosé. Have a Peroni if you prefer or sup a think Oreo Shake down to the last addictive mouthful.

Pizzaiolo has a specials board, so keep an eye open for daily treats and weekly deals.
