Aquila was founded in 2020 by Chris. If he had it his way, every meal of the day would be fresh pizza. Naturally therefore, it made sense to open a pizzeria so that he could be sure of a bountiful supply of pizza. Unsatisfied with the standard of pizza often found in the UK, he set off on a pilgrimage to Naples, the birthplace of pizza. He visited Naples with a good friend, and seriously talented photographer, Sanjay. Here he learnt how to make pizza in the world’s best pizzerias and learnt from pizzaiolo (pizza chefs) who had been producing pizza for generations, in ovens that were sometimes hundreds of years old. Equipped with an understanding of how good pizza could be, he returned to the UK to share Neapolitan pizza with Lancaster.
