Who are we?
Formally the York Pizza Company Limited. We rebranded at the back end of 2017 and are now trading as Dough Eyed.
We make proper, Neapolitan style wood fired pizza. You’ll find us at The Fox on Holgate Road in York on Thursdays and most Fridays. We also have a converted vintage Rice horse trailer that we built ourselves for our private event catering.
We’re pizza geeks! As much as it is a commercial venture and we need to turn a profit we’re also massively into pizza and we want our clients and their guests to enjoy some of the best pizza they will have ever tasted.
Neapolitan Style Pizza
Our speciality is Neapolitan style pizza. This style comes from Naples, the birth place of pizza in Italy. Neapolitan pizza is typically a thin base with a soft puffy crust. Our pizzas are not crunchy and rigid. They’re simple and light with very fresh high quality ingredients. Typically a Neapolitan pizza is cut into quarters. You then fold the slice in half to make it rigid enough to eat. In a restaurant scenario it’s nearly always eaten with a knife and fork.
Our dough is home made from the finest stone ground Italian flour and is fermented for a minimum of 24 hours. This allows the dough to develop slowly and makes for a tasty, bubbly, blistery crust with some charred spot.
Everything else we use is top quality. Our tomato sauce is simply quality San Marzano tomatoes which are crushed to a spreadable consistency with salt added to taste. Our cheese is a quality cows milk mozzarella known as For Di Latte. Our charcuterie is high quality Italian. The bulk of our pizzas are finished with fresh basil, a generous pinch of grana padano and a drizzle of quality extra virgin olive oil.
