Pizzaluxe Manchester Arndale, Food Court, Manchester Arndale, Manchester, M4 2HU – Visit Now
The Arndale has had many fresh faces and new favourites over the years and the latest newcomers Pizzaluxe may be the next big thing for Manchester. Already popular in Leeds and London, owner Paul Goodale has made the move to bring his pizzas to a city that loves the Italian staple. Their new branch is the hot new thing on the block, bringing together elements of a chic bar and the appeal of a high-end restaurant, Pizzaluxe is a breath of fresh air.
So what makes the pizzas here so luxurious? For one, their bases are made from a 96-hour sourdough with the same mother being used since Day 1. That huge proofing duration means that the dough itself has no residual yeast, so you can say goodbye to the bloating you would usually experience after a session of pizza indulgence. In addition to that, the pizzas are lathered in a delicious homemade tomato sauce after being pressed to the perfect size. If you have a sneaking suspicion that your pizza is missing an inch or two, you can check for yourself too.
Pizzaluxe is also worth a visit for their sublime cocktail menu
On each table is a QR code to order from, but on closer inspection, you will find that each table has a built-in tape measure for you to ensure that you have gotten all 13″ you asked for. Their menu features pizzas topped with the usual suspects of mushrooms, chicken and chorizo, but also unique sides like their dough and dip starters and a burrata garlic bread for you to get your hands on.
Aside from their food though, Pizzaluxe is also worth a visit for their sublime cocktail menu, which has been refined to rival any bar around. Aside from the obligatory Aperol spritz and negroni that any Italian establishment will serve, you will discover that there is a Seasonal Tommy’s Margarita on the menu. Perfect for a sunny day, this variation of a margarita uses an agave syrup for a cleaner finish.
