AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS IN THE STREET FOOD SCENE, THE MARTIN BROS. TEAM VIEWED A PROPERTY ON THE SOUGHT-OUT CLARENDON PARK AREA IN LEICESTER AND IMMEDIATELY SAW THE POTENTIAL IN IT.
We have completely transformed the former ‘White Elephant’ store into a lovely little haven for fans of all things high-quality in an unpretentious and friendly setting.
Martin Bros. Micropizzeria offer authentic Neo-Neapolitan pizzas using the very best quality ingredients from both Italy and the UK. We have created a completely integrated experience of pizzas and starters paired with the most modern and exciting local and international craft beers, served in a beautiful, relaxed environment alongside artisan coffee and a carefully curated wine / natural wine list and incredible spirits!
The Martin Brothers, Aaron and Josh Martin, have always been passionate about Pizza. When we started to casually make our own home-made dough, we realised that there was plenty of room for improvement and thus prowled forums and cooking books to unearth the well-kept secrets of how to perfect our Pizzas. This obsession wasn’t just a passing phase, it was the start of a lifestyle for us!
Despite our continual development, the sheer determination to create truly authentic Neapolitan Pizzas led us to enrol into Bivero Pizza Academy in Florence, Italy, where we were intensively taught the art by the Master Pizzaiolo – Massimiliano Crocetti and his specialist team in May 2018. This involved practical lessons and service within their famous ‘Zero Zero Ristorante’ where we were assisting in serving high quality artisanal pizzas to over 150 Italian customers on a daily basis.
Upon returning we were keen to make Martin Bros. Pizza Co. a reality and got on with securing all of our equipment and shortlisting our numerous suppliers. We gained the invaluable commitment of the highly experienced Front-of-House operations guru, Vanessa Poludniak, and got on with arranging events and following our dreams!
