“if our pizza isn’t the best pizza you have ever had, we’ll give you your money back”- doesn’t get much better than that folks…this place has everything going for it – the pizza (of course), the location at 2 Heather Street is seriously cool AND do you know the back story?
Briefly, the son of Sal (the New York originator of these superb pizzas), Brian Leo ,was convinced to come down to Auckland. Sal himself was nearing retirement and with a little coaxing from his mother and sister – Brian agreed to relocate and be head pizzamaker at Sal’s in New Zealand.
It’s worth re-iterating what Sal’s NZ owners wrote about Brian on their Facebook page in April, “this guy has the sauce running through his veins like few others, been slingin’ dough since age 5 1/2… these days we like to refer to him as the Roger Federer of pizzamakers. Arrived in New Zealand January 31st 2009, we’d like to think a better place for it…” Yummy story, yummy food.
