What does your name Impasto 48 mean?
Impasto is the Italian word for dough and the 48 stands for the hours we leave our dough to proof before we use it to make pizzas. This is ‘The secret behind the pizza’ .
What is ‘The secret behind the pizza’?
It’s in our name ‘ Impasto 48’ . We use our secret sourdough recipe for our pizza bases. This gives a crisp light and chewy texture to each pizza. We only use the finest quality natural ingredients in our dough; Flour, Water, Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Salt. We source a lot of our ingredients directly from
Italy to keep our pizzas as authentic as possible. For example we use Zero Zero flour that is sourced directly from a small family run mill in Italy. They have been milling flour for 4 generations. The only other secret ingredient we use is the ‘48’, this is the time we leave our dough to proof. This allows the dough to breath and become light, you’ll notice the difference after your first bite.
Where did you get your pizza oven?
It was handbuilt by a family run company in Italy, that specialise in the handcrafting of traditional artisan pizza ovens. They hand make all their pizza ovens using traditional methods, such as handmade Sorrento clay bricks . They merge these traditional methods with modern technology
such as our Spitfire gas burner and our rotating oven floor.
How much did the pizza oven cost?
Let’s just say it was worth every cent. You can’t cut corners with the pizza oven.
How big are your pizzas?
We have two size options, our medium which is 10” these are made to be enjoyed by one person. Our large is 13” which is made to share. We hand make each pizza so the size and shape can vary very slightly.
Is there any egg or dairy in your dough?
No, there is no egg or dairy in our dough.
Do you have gluten free pizzas?
No, unfortunately we don’t currently offer gluten free pizzas, this is because we only have one pizza oven and can’t guarantee that the pizza would be safe for coeliacs. We do have other gluten free dishes available. Check out our menu on our website or ask one of the team.
Do you have a vegan pizza?
Yes we do, check out our menu on our website or create your own vegan pizza. Our dough and sauce are made only using plant based ingredients. So if you fancy it add your own vegan toppings from our selection of vegetables.
