About Me:

 

Having grown up in Slovenia, I made the most of enjoying the flavour and learning the techniques of the classic cuisine originating from neighbouring Italy. I know what good, authentic pizza should look and taste like and the mission of Dan The Pizza Man is to pass that on to you.

I make the component parts of my pizza using traditional recipes and methods then top them with the quintessential pizza ingredients. Although my pizzas would still be considered a treat, the fresh Mediterranean inspired ingredients create a healthier alternative to many other take-away options. 

While you will always be sure to find me serving up the finest pizza and sharing my passion with you, sometimes my wife Ellie will also be there to welcome you and keep you company while I'm preparing your meal - we hope you enjoy our family focus. For us, family extends to our local community that we love! We have weekly pitches at Lord's Walk and Lakenheath Sports Pavilion, and as the business grows and we get to know each of you more we hope to become a source of positive community spirit for everyone. After all, what goes better with good food than friendship!

Home Made, Hand Stretched

I take great care in creating fresh, hand made dough every morning, stretching it by hand before topping with my own recipe tomato sauce. Next a tried and practiced variety of additional ingredients get their time to shine; fresh vegetables, rich cheeses, juicy meats or tasty fish all get their time to shine, but never steal the show. And, of course, No pizza is complete without a generous sprinkle of fresh mozzarella cheese.

pizza wood fired for flavour

No taste quite compares to the smokey kiss of a real wood fire, that's why wherever I pop up, you'll be certain to see me with my wood-fired stone-oven.

Passion For Our Planet

Climate change is the biggest challenge our global community faces and Dan the Pizza Man wants to help. That is why I support Ecologi, a UK organisation which plants trees around the world to help reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. See their website https://ecologi.com/about for information on all the great projects they are involved in. Dan the Pizza Man's "forest" currently has 50 trees growing in it - already offsetting 1 tonne of carbon dioxide! I pledge to plant at least 50 trees a month, plus any that customers ask to plant too. At a price of only 12p per tree, please let me know when you order if you wish to donate.
