How We Make The Best Pizza In South East London

La Cucina di Ina – Traditional Italian Restaurant in Croydon, South London

If you are looking for the best pizza in Southeast London, try La Cucina di Ina! We are a traditional Italian restaurant and local pizza takeaway in Croydon serving South East London. La Cucina di Ina makes authentic Italian pizza with fresh ingredients, a special dough, and a classic Italian gas oven.

Let’s explain how we make our pizzas and why they are so delicious.

The Dough

The secret of La Cucina di Ina’s pizza is the dough. The dough is made with high-quality flour, water, yeast, salt, and olive oil. The dough is then left to rise for 48 hours, which gives it a lighter and more intense flavour. The long fermentation process also makes the dough easier to digest and more nutritious. The dough is then stretched by hand, without using a rolling pin, to preserve its texture and airiness.

The Toppings

At La Cucina di Ina, we use only fresh and authentic Italian ingredients for our toppings- no shortcuts! All our products are sourced from Italy, such as the mozzarella, the tomato sauce, the olive oil and much more. You can choose from a variety of toppings, sauces, and cheeses to customise your pizza.

You can also try our special dishes, meat, fish, or different pizzas from the menu every day. We have a small blackboard where we add new and seasonal options and dishes.

The Oven

We have a big pizza oven with gas, imported from Italy. The gas oven gives the pizza a crispy crust and a soft centre, with a smoky and aromatic flavour. The oven can reach high temperatures, which allows the pizza to cook quickly and evenly.

The oven also has a stone base, which ensures that the pizza is cooked uniformly on all sides, giving it that classic “leopard mottle” and crunch.

The Result

The result is a delicious and authentic Italian pizza, with a thin and crispy base, a soft and airy edge, and a rich and balanced topping. La Cucina di Ina’s serves the best pizza in Southeast London (at least we think so!), and you can enjoy it at our cosy and friendly restaurant, or order it online for pizza delivery or takeaway.
