Authentic Italian Ingredient Pizza

The Finest Ingredients Make the Finest Pizzas

Since 1970 the Crolla family have built an enviable reputation that has made their name synonymous with the highest standards in great Italian food. Their experience, knowledge and attention to authenticity brings you the true Italian pizzeria experience without compromise.

That’s what La Favorita delivers every single day.  Their ‘pizzaioli’ use the freshest, authentic ingredients and an Italian-built wood-fired oven to turn out delicious thin-crust pizzas. All laden with the best combinations of Italy’s most mouth-watering toppings.  The Italian flavour is in the cooking too. The 300 degree centigrade heat in their custom-made, log-fired Italian oven gives their pizzas a special crispiness and unmistakable smoky flavour.

As well as being famed for our pizzas, La Favorita also serves up a delicious selection of gourmet pastas, healthy fresh salads, antipasti, grill items and fabulous desserts, all prepared to order by our experienced chefs.

Sourcing the Best Pizza Ingredients

At La Favorita we’ve always used the best ingredients for our pizza and pasta.  For example our ham comes from Brescia, our Parmesan from Bologna, tomatoes from Campania and flour from Padova.

Our dough is made with authentic, Italian, ingredients and no additives.  Our pizza dough is prepared by our Master Pizzaiolis and left for 48 hours to naturally mature before use.  Our promise is that we never freeze our dough, it’s always fresh.

And we are proud that our pizzas are extra light and crispy, as well as low in salt and gluten because we use our own flour made to a special recipe.

Special Dietary Requirements?

Not a problem! For customers with dietary allergies or sensitivities, La Favorita makes life easy with a wide range of gluten-free pizzas and pastas, nut free and lactose free dishes, as well as vegetarian dishes clearly indicated on menus.  And for additional reassurance, the kitchen brigade place a small Italian flag on gluten free dishes to confirm that the order has been taken correctly.

Our philosophy is simple… to offer food sourced with an eager eye for provenance and quality, offering a genuine taste and experience of Italy!
