ABOUT US

Pizza is a simple food. Dough, tomatoes, cheese, toppings.

But in the forty years I’ve been passionate about pizza the one thing I’ve learned is that the perfect pizza is not just a recipe, it’s an ever evolving learning experience and obsession expressed in the form of a “craft” and it’s through that craft we express our single most important objective at Pitfire and that is to inspire with a simple food.

Mastering the craft begins with our unique and flavorful crust which has evolved over the last five years to what is best described as “New York meets Neapolitan” in that our pizzas are made with Italian Caputo OO flour but then mixed to a New York Style dough recipe.

We top our pizzas with crushed Italian tomatoes and our fresh mozzarella is locally made right here in Dubai by Italian artisan cheese makers and delivered to us daily. All this Italian influence then comes together in our gas fired New York "deck oven" and hence the marriage between two pizza styles!

We mix our dough daily and proof it for 48 hours producing a crust that is visually handsome, full of flavor and aroma, is soft yet crispy and always funked-up with our non-traditional topping combinations and seasonal specials.

Most importantly our pizza is highly digestible due to our artisan mixing and fermentation processes which allows the yeast to work on the sugars and starches within the flour for 48 hours. Unlike most of the pizza in Dubai you’ll never be left feeling sick, heavy or tired after eating a Pitfire Pizza.

Our sweet Italian fennel sausage along with all of our deserts, dressings and most all of our pizza toppings are house-made daily.

We go to great lengths to ensure that when you choose Pitfire your experience is that of incredible familiar and new flavors, freshness, value and food crafted to inspire.
