Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!

Pizza for you, and you and you! Pizza for everyone! Here at The Lion Hotel, we love a good hearty stone-baked pizza.

Why Stone-Baked?

Have you ever eaten a pizza that is not thoroughly cooked throughout? Maybe they have a soggy bottom? Of half the toppings have burnt, while the other half is undercooked? This means that you don’t get the perfect pizza experience.
As pizza lovers, here at The Lion Hotel, we want to ensure that every customer gets that great experience time and time again. To get that experience, we cook our pizzas using a hot stone. This cooks the pizza not only thoroughly but evenly throughout, and from the base up, meaning that you should never find a burnt topping or a soggy bottom! After all, a crisp bottom just makes the pizza complete.

Our Favourite Pizzas

It would be rude of us to assume that everyone likes the same toppings on their pizza. That’s why we have such a broad selection on our pizza menu.
Our favourite is of course the Lions Pride, topped with Tomato sauce, spicy beef, red onion, chorizo, mozzarella, sun dried tomato & parmesan. Here are some of our regular customers favourites:
San Giorgio – Tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella, parma ham, basil & parmesan
Vegetarian – Tomato sauce, aubergines, courgettes, peppers & mozzarella (V)
Chicken Tikka – Tikka sauce, mozzarella , chicken tikka , sundried tomato, red onion & mint yoghurt sauce
Check out our complete pizza menu for the full selection. And don’t forget you can add extras on!

A Time To Share

There are few foods that many of us will share. But pizza is certainly one of them. So whether you are gathering with friends, family, or even colleagues, why not order a selection of pizzas and all tuck in together.
Make sure there’s everyone’s favourites included, so you’ll want a meaty one, a vegetarian option, a spicy one and even a classic (will you dare to pineapple?).
Of course, you’ll want to include more than just a table of pizzas (while I’m sure, like us, you would be happy to just eat pizza). Why not take a look at our incredible selection of sides? Our favourite sides for pizza include our beer batter onion rings, skinny fries, sweet potato fries and the incredible salt and balsamic crispy potatoes.

A Pizza For Pudding?

You might think we’ve gone pizza mad. And well, you’d be right! Our pizza menu doesn’t stop at the mains. We have even included a sweet pizza for your pudding.
Our Nutella pizza, like our others, is a stone-baked base, topped with lashings of Nutella, coated in berries and finished off with chantilly cream. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

So, if you fancy a pizza this week, don’t pick up the phone to order one in. Get your glad rags on and head down to one of the finest pizza restaurants in Derby. Here at The Lion Hotel, we can ensure that your pizza arrives at your table perfectly every time.
