DINNER: Drift Pizza

Their commitment to crafting the perfect pizza is a labour of love. Each one of their wood-fired pizzas is a testament to the artistry and dedication that goes into making them truly exceptional. They start with the basics, using only the freshest yeast and Italian pizza flour to create a dough that is tender and flavourful. Their skilled pizza makers hand-stretch each dough ball with precision, ensuring that every pizza takes on its perfect shape. The magic happens when they top these dough canvases with the freshest ingredients and slide them into their seasoned wood-fired oven. As the pizza bakes, the subtle aroma of wood smoke fills the air, a characteristic you won’t find in any store-bought pizza.
