There's an awful lot of pizza in Manchester these days. In fact, there's way too much of it. So when you decide to become a pizza offering you'd better have a strong USP; something to set you aside from the crowd.
As you've no doubt heard long before clicking on the link to open this article, Nell's have taken up residency at various venues across town. A 22" 'New York' style pizza provides that draw and is the reason why we visited. 14" pizzas and individual slides are also on the menu, but why bother with such amateurish nonsense?
Whilst I can count to 22 and can semi envisage such grandure, you're just not prepared for the sheer size when your pizza lands. Due to algebra being clever stuff, at 50% more diameter than their 14" pizzas, it still equates to about 250% the actual volume of its relatively bite-sized companion. In short, it's plenty of NY pie for 3 hungry adults.
Toppings are a mix of traditional and interesting. Italian purists would be appalled at some of them, but then this is NY style and as well as being massive food snobs and semi-purists, we are also fans of food being fun. If you like it, then it's good. Simple. We opted to split our 8 sliced 22" circle of joy with half Cacio e Pepe, and half Pepperoni with Chilli Honey. The latter is becoming a bit of a 'thing' generally, and we love it. The crust as relatively thin, and what looks like a huge amount of food went down fairly simple. Not at all stodgy or heavy, with a fairly modestly sized crust. It was well baked, tasted great, and was the perfect match to a couple of beers. No blurby food adjectives are needed to impress you here. It just is what it is. A simple, fun, well-made NY style pizza.
