Cal's Own - Jesmond

Anyone who follows me on twitter will know I like to moan, about the weather mostly but more so at the moment about the fact that Matty and I are getting a new kitchen and our old one has been completely ripped out, which means we don’t even have a sink in there at the moment and we haven’t had a hob since last Wednesday. 

In my defence we eat out most nights anyway so I’m just using this excuse about the kitchen to eat out even more. 

We headed to Cals Own in Jesmond, I'm always shocked when people of the North East tell me they're pizza lovers but they've never been to Cals. Old readers will know how much I adore Pizza, new readers, Pizza is my number one favourite food. I could eat it 7 days a week quite easily. 


Cal's Own is only open Wednesday till Sunday so I'd only manage pizza 5 days and then have to outsource the other 2 days in the week. 


Matty and I started with Truffle chips, grated with grand padano (DOP), white truffle oil and Sicilian sea salt £3.45, with some hot sauce to dip our chips in. These truffle chips were a taste sensation!! 


I was scrapping the flakes of cheese from the bottom of the bowl and the hot sauce was a perfect combination. 


When it comes to Pizza I like to keep it fairly simple, good Neapolitan base, tasty tomato sauce, lots of mozzarella with a topping of basil. 

Which is exactly what Matty and I both got at Cal's, Margherita Di Bufala Campana Doppio £12.45. San Marzano tomato sauce DOP, mozzarella di bufala Campana DOP, fresh basil, sea salt & extra virgin olive oil. 


My hands are strategically placed here as I'd spilled hot sauce from the truffle fries down my jumper. 


I do have a slight weekness when it comes to Pizza, I love a garlic sauce - the more garlic the better!! 


The garlic dip at Cal's Own is divine. 


We both throughly enjoyed our pizza, Cal's is one of my favourite places to go for a pizza treat. 

Thing's that's worth knowing when you visit Cal's, they have put 5% surcharge on card payments, so take cash and they don't split card payments if you're in a group. 

Where is your favourite place to go for a pizza treat?
