If you can forgive the pun, you'll find authentic Neapolitan pizza, cooked in the wood-fired oven (a Stefano Ferrara oven, hand built in Naples, no less) at this Jesmond pizzeria - for its first few years Cal's was in Heaton, but shifted in 2016.
Harden's survey result
Fans of this puntastic pizzeria may be going OTT when they hail it as “probably the best pizza in the UK”. But Jesmond-born former joiner Calvin Kitchin and his brother Kerry take their trade seriously – their “good-value pizzas” are accredited by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana and cooked in a wood-fired Stefano Ferrara oven imported from Naples.
Jesmond-born Calvin Kitchin and his brother Kerry have achieved cult status amongst fans for their “authentic Neapolitan pizza, with no frills”, which has earned Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana accreditation – one of only two awarded in Britain.
