Some might say there’s too many pizzerias in Manchester but when it comes to top pizzas in Manchester, particularly of the Neapolitan variety, the city is split between Rudy’s and Chorlton’s Double Zero. For those who can’t enough of the latter’s beautifully-puffed up crusts and gorgeous toppings (all pizzas are sprinkled with parmesan, which gets a thumb’s up from us) then you’re in luck as the restaurant on Barlow Moor Road is set to expand by opening a new location within the Manchester city centre.
Announcing the news on social media of a brand new location, the pizzeria said: ” We’re really happy to share with all our customers that we will be expanding to Fountain Street in Manchester City Centre. We are over the moon and will be giving you updates on when we will be opening at some point over the coming months and we simply can’t wait.
“Massive shout out to @lef_tsotour for this piece of photography of our beautiful city centre and thank you so much for allowing us to use your stunning photo in honour of announcing this beautiful news. This wouldn’t of been possible without all of our customers that have continued to support us over the 8 years since we first opened.”
The eight-year old Chorlton institution, Double Zero, prides itself on authenticity from the dough, which is made on-site daily using only four ingredients, to the wood-fired oven brought in from Naples. Plus, the pizzeria is a go-to for the gluten intolerant since its one of very few pizza restaurants in the Manchester area which offers freshly made gluten-free pizza and garlic bread.
Double Zero is also home to the Mezzaluna, half calzone, half pizza with ham, mushroom and mortadella it’s the hybrid you never knew you needed. A date of when the new Double Zero restaurant opens on Fountain Street, not far from the likes of Manchester food and drink spots Six by Nico and Black Sheep Coffee, is yet to be announced but stay tuned for updates.
