Neapolitan Wood Fired Pizza

Our Story

It was February 2013, two friends (Ryan and Peter) took a trip to Palermo, Sicily and on a slightly drunken evening stumbled into a local pizzeria.

The warming, rustic, soft and cloudy disk of wonderment, adorned with high quality toppings accompanied with amazing wine changed everything they knew about pizza.

That pizza sparked an idea that soon became Little Furnace. The best-known pizzeria in Liverpool.

What is Neapolitan?

Neapolitan pizza has been called the originator of ‘pizza’ as we know it today. It is of such cultural importance to Italy that it has been given UNESCO ‘intangible heritage’ status. This means that strict rules have had to be laid out that a pizza has to fall within in order to qualify as ‘Neapolitan Pizza’.

Neapolitan is soft and cloudy rather than thin and crispy, and traditionally cooked in wood-fired ovens.

Our Menus

We offer both a traditional and vegan menu with a wide range of delicious options.

Our drinks menu includes soft drinks, local and Italian beers, cocktails and our favourite selection of wines.

We also have gluten free options available at our Smithdown Road site.

Takeaway & Delivery

Our pizzas are best eaten freshly prepared ‘in house’. If they don’t reach your mouth within 7 minutes of leaving the oven they ‘lose a bit of magic’ (but are still delicious nonetheless).

We do offer takeaway in person from Smithdown Road but we don’t accept pre-orders. This is so we can do our best to guarantee that ‘fresh from the oven’ result every time.

We also offer local delivery via Deliveroo.
