Rudy’s Pizza Napoletana has announced it is due to open in Didsbury in October 2022.
The neighbourhood pizzeria will bring its relaxed dining concept to the former Mad Giant food hall on Wilmslow Road.
Serving the perfect and classic Neapolitan pizza since 2015 from its original Rudy’s in Ancoats, the much-loved pizzeria has since opened more sites, with the brand-new 90-cover restaurant in Didsbury being its fifth location in Manchester.
It follows branches on Peter Street next to Albert’s Schloss in the city centre and in Northenden Road, Sale, and this summer Rudy’s opened another pizzeria in the former Lloyds Bank on 577 Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton.
There are also now branches in Stockton Heath, Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and London.
Born out of passion for pizza, Rudy’s follows the authentic Neapolitan tradition of pizza making, serving classic recipes such as Marinara, Margherita and Calabrese – all originating from Naples, the birthplace of pizza.
Rudy’s dough is made fresh daily using Caputo ‘00’ flour which ferments for at least 24 hours, alongside the best quality ingredients imported from Naples, including San Marzano tomatoes grown on fields next to Mount Vesuvius, and Fior di Latte mozzarella.
All accordance to a truly authentic Neapolitan technique, the dough is cooked in a Stefano Ferrara oven for just 60 seconds – resulting in a soft and light pizza with an airy and raised cornicione (the edge or rim of the pizza).
“We look forward to becoming part of the community in Didsbury,” said Martyn Williams, General Manager of Rudy’s Didsbury.
“We will open our doors this Autumn and the team cannot wait to serve our authentic Neapolitan pizza in this lovely neighbourhood.”
