Dubai – Apparel Group, one of GCC’s largest retail conglomerates announced the opening of Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria by British Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver in Dubai’s popular hub, Jumeirah Lake Towers – Cluster R. The restaurant was inaugurated by Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of DMCC & HM Consul General to Dubai & Northern Emirates, Andrew Jackson on May 22, 2018.

This is the first Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria to make it to the Middle East and only the sixth of its kind in the world, serving up authentic Italian Neapolitan hand-stretched pizzas topped with fresh ingredients, salads, nibbles, delicious desserts and amazing healthy breakfast options.

Jamie Oliver says: “I’m so excited to have just opened my pizzeria concept in Dubai – it’s in a really buzzing area of the city and I just know it’ll tick loads of boxes for the people living and working in the neighbourhood. It’s really great to be able to get stuck in and bring some super high-quality, well made pizzas to the city, and embrace local flavours along the way. The thing I love about Dubai is that there’s so many different cultures and some incredible produce on offer, and you guys really appreciate the importance of using beautiful fresh ingredients, like I do in all my restaurants. See you out there soon!”

The restaurant is a rustic Italian casual-dining concept that has a simple and classic menu with bold flavours. Every dish is made from fresh and impeccably sourced ingredients like high welfare beef, free range chicken and eggs and sustainably sourced seafood.

The pizza dough is made fresh on-site and baked to perfection. You can enjoy a range of classic sourdough pizzas, while a healthy whole grain dough has also been specially created for the Middle East. In addition, a customised menu has been created, incorporating the multi-cultural vibe of Dubai with dishes like Paneer picante pizza, Chicken tikka pizza and Masala lemonade.

With a relaxed neighbourhood feel, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria is a true celebration of the ‘Italian way of eating’ where families and friends come together and enjoy delicious, authentic food.

Whether you’re looking for a quick breakfast, an easy lunch or somewhere to relax with friends and family, our Pizzerias are comfortable, convenient and affordable. Pop in today and enjoy, what we think is, one of the best pizzas in town. -abdulbasit@theuaenews.com
