Amore Pizzeria is owned by us, Paulo and Carmelina Benfeito, we have 3 wonderful kids. And lots and lots of passion for family, friends and Pizza!
Una fetta d’amore
Latin passions run deep at Amore Pizzeria, with Portuguese, Italian and Sicilian influences creating the perfect ambience around the focal point and heart of our pizzeria, our traditional wood burning pizza oven.
Nothing compares to the flavour and aroma of pizza cooked in the traditional way and every slice really is “a slice of love”.
Pizzaiolo (Pizza Chef) Paulo is a skilled artisan when it comes to all things pizza and you can see him in action creating your pizzas using time honoured methods and recipes, handed down over generations.
Beware though! He loves sharing his pizza passion and knowledge and has been known to give the occasional impromptu (guest participation may be required) lesson in pizza making whilst cooking!
Thought pizza was solely an Italian speciality? It’s also a traditional dish in Portugal and a firm favourite with pizza connoisseurs for its spicy Moroccan and North African influences.
In fact, Pizzaioli Paulo’s Portuguese mamma’s extra special Piri Piri Chicken recipe is so incredibly popular with our diners, it’s one of our most frequently requested toppings. If you’re looking for something a little hotter and spicier, our selection of Portuguese inspired pizzas will soon have your taste buds tingling.
