Leicester is a city that has been on the rise for quite some time. It’s one of those cities where you can find everything from hip bars to trendy restaurants, and even if it’s not your cup of tea, there are plenty of places to eat out here. But foodwise, we have to say that the pizza scene here is pretty good. There are many different kinds of pizzas available, like the popular Margherita (tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil), Hawaiian (pineapple, ham, pineapple, bacon, mayonnaise), or vegetarian.
We are proud to say we are one of the best pizzerias in Leicester. La Santa’s pizzas are baked by our chefs with love. The dough is made fresh from scratch every day, using only the finest ingredients. All our toppings are prepared from fresh ingredients every day too.
Pizza is a popular fast food dish. It is a round, flat, and usually, crisp bread covered with tomato sauce and cheese. The origins of pizza are unknown. Some historians believe that it originated from Ancient Rome or ancient Greece. Still, others claim that it comes from medieval Europe. However, there is evidence to suggest that pizza may have originated in China during the Han Dynasty. However, the fact is that the first pizzeria was opened in 1738 in Naples, Italy, by baker Raffaele Esposito. The dish became popular in the United States in the early 20th century and quickly spread to the rest of the world. Pizza is typically garnished with tomato sauce, Mozzarella cheese, and other vegetables or meats such as pepperoni and sausage. There are many types of pizza like Hawaiian (featuring pineapple), New York-style pizza (thick crust with a mixture of sauerkraut and Italian sausage), Chicago-style pizza (thin crust with a mix of salami, bell peppers, onion, and tomato sauce), Montreal-style pizza (thick crust with no tomato sauce), and California-style pizza (thin crust topped with a mixture of vegetables such as broccoli and mushrooms).
