Scream for Pizza opened its doors in 2014 after its owners, Alex and Victoria, quit their jobs as cruise ship workers to pursue their true passion: pizza making. They enrolled in the famous La Notizia pizzeria, where they learned everything they needed to know about making authentic, Neapolitan pizza.
Today, their restaurant has received several awards and is featured in several magazines like the Times Top 25 Woodfired Pizzas in the UK or Olive Magazine’s List of Best Pizza Restaurants in the UK. Owners Alex and Victoria have had much success and continue to grow and find ways to better serve their customers.
We were curious to learn more about why this Newcastle-based restaurant is a resident and tourist favourite. We’ll share what we found in this detailed review.
Why Did We Choose Scream for Pizza in Newcastle?
Two words stick out when we think of Scream for Pizza in Newcastle: passion and hard work.
