Fatto a Mano to open perm pizzeria in London next month

This June, Brighton’s Fatto a Mano will launch Fatto Pizza & Beer in King's Cross, serving up Neapolitan pizzas alongside craft beers from some of the best small independent breweries in the UK and Italy.

After having established itself in much-loved local spots in the seaside city of Brighton and Hove, as well as becoming a firm favourite at BoxPark Croydon and BoxPark Shoreditch, Fatto a Mano is now laying permanent foundations in the capital.

With an unpretentious focus on simple, quality produce and fast, friendly service, the King’s Cross pizzeria will offer a menu of pizzas, six beers on tap and more in the fridge.

The menu will feature classic pizzas including Margherita, Diavola and the Neapolitan favourite, Salsiccia e Friarielli, alongside a range with modern toppings and a monthly pizza special. Vegan pizzas include Fatto a Mano’s homemade Tomato & Olive ‘Nduja. As with all Fatto a Mano pizzerias, the dough will be made fresh every day and proved for at least 24 hours.

Ingredients have been carefully selected from a handful of small suppliers, including the Fior Di Latte Mozzarella, sourced from a family-run business in Campania, who Fatto a Mano have used since first opening their doors in 2015.

Craft beers on tap will include Fatto Bionda Pilsner brewed by Harbour Brewing Co of Cornwall; Joosy Hazy Pale from fellow Brightonians, UnBarred; and KBirr’s #cuoredinapoli APA. Sharing bottles will be served from a collection of Italian craft breweries.

Founder Rupert Davidson noted, “Fatto Pizza & Beer matches the best of pizza and independent craft beer, keeping it simple with a short menu. Pizzerias in Naples have served pizza and beer as the perfect combination for over half a century - we can’t wait to bring our take on this to Kings Cross.”
