Cal’s Own

What is it?

Cal’s Own is the the first authentic Neapolitan pizzeria in the north of the UK, and the go to place for anyone that would take a poke in the eye over a frozen thin crust margarita. The restaurant made the short trip from Heaton to Jesmond a few years ago and expanded its fanbase of connoisseurs.

Why is it smashing?

Deep in the kitchen at Cal’s Own there is a Stefano Ferrara wood-fired oven shipped over from Naples and capable of cooking a pizza in less than 90 seconds, so never let anyone tell you fast food can’t be authentic, wholesome and outrageously tasty.  Oh, and they do peanut butter pie.
