A bit about us:

La Pizza Company was founded in Kingston Upon Thames by Pietro Vitolo from Capri, Italy. He used his own Neapolitan family pizza dough recipes to produce high quality pizza dough and part baked pizza bases. Pietro moved to Midhurst in 2001 to expand the family owned business within a purpose-built factory fitted out with the latest high-tech pizza manufacturing equipment. This enabled the company to grow and mass produce consistent, high quality Neapolitan recipes to the current day and beyond. The current Directors took over the business in August 2006 and changed its name in March 2012 to Pan’Artisan.

Today we supply an ever-expanding list of wholesalers and distributors, who deliver our products throughout the UK. You’ll find us in all the best restaurants, pubs, cafés, hotels and leisure venues where the quality of product is a priority. Pan ‘Artisan has BRC accreditation, and we have gained numerous awards over the years. We also pride ourselves on our Business Partnership with the Craft Guild of Chefs; working together to develop innovative, contemporary and flexible new products and provide inspiring menu solutions for today’s discerning consumer.

Appropriate PPE is provided in all cases as are uniforms and full training is given for all areas of the specific role being undertaken.
