Who are we?
Formally the York Pizza Company Limited. We rebranded at the back end of 2017 and are trading as Dough Eyed.
We turn out proper, Neapolitan style wood fired pizza. You’ll find us at Piglets Adventure Farm in the Play Baaarn and we’re also at The Fox on Holgate Road on Thursdays and most Fridays. We also have a converted vintage Rice horse trailer for our event catering.
We care about our pizza…. as much as it is a commercial venture with the aim of turning a profit we’re also massive pizza geeks 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 capital 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.
Our dough is home made from the finest stone ground Italian flour and is fermented for 24 hours in the fridge. This allows the dough to develop slowly and makes for a tasty, bubbly, blistery crust with charred spots known as leopard spotting.
Everything else we use is top quality. Our tomato sauce is simply quality San Marzano DOP 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 and a sprinkle of quality extra virgin olive oil.
