Pizza Locale Rotterdam

Pizza Locale opens its first restaurant in Rotterdam

The founders of Pizza Locale opened their first restaurant in İzmir (Turkey) five years ago. Nowadays there are 30 pizzerias in Turkey and Azerbaijan. The first location in the Netherlands is now open at the Karel Doormanstraat.

Pizza Locale stands out with unique flavours. Next to savory pizzas with Soujouk and Smoked Ribs there are also sweet variants with M&M’s, Nutella, or Toblerone and fruit like strawberry and banana!

The beginning of Pizza Locale

The story begins when the founders were struggling in corporate life. They wanted to end the misery and the escape plan was to create a happy place where intimacy is key and guests are always welcomed as family.  Pizza Locale opened its first store in October 2015 in İzmir, Turkey.

Pizza Locale has since transformed into a fast Casual dining movement. By using non-frozen, high-quality ingredients and placing more toppings as competitors for reasonable prices it distinguished itself in Türkiye, Now it wants to branch out globally.

The dough is specially prepared and is rested for hours. The pizza is spread with a tomato sauce with a secret recipe. For the toppings, local charcuterie can be used be also Aegean artichoke. That way they’re able to combine international taste with local flavors.

Also on the menu are salads and sweet pizzas with chocolate or fruit.
