KALURA 'OUR LITTLE SICILY...'
Authentic southern style pizza
Pizzeria Kalura is located in the heart of the student district of Antwerp.
It was born from our passion for the hospitality industry and especially that of my husband, Massimo, the Sicilian owner and pizzaiolo. Due to his many years of expertise in Ragusa - Sicily, he chooses to work only with the best products (directly imported from Italy).
We have long rising pizza dough (more than 24hours), which is baked in a wood fired oven.
KALURA comes from 'warmth' and is Sicilian (as opposed to 'calore' in Italian). It stands for the warmth that is always central in Sicily. The heat from the sun, the warmth and friendliness of the people and of course also the heat from our authentic wood oven that goes up to 400°.
Make a trip to Sicily with our many pizzas from the 'Patapizza' (pizza with chips) and the 'Norma' (pizza with aubergines and ricotta salata) to the 'Pistacchiosa' (pizza with burrata, pistacchio and mortadella) in our small, warm and cosy restaurant.
Why we choose a wood fired oven...
First of all we have a lot of respect for the history and tradition of pizza-making.
But most of all we choose a wood fired oven for the scent and the taste that aromatic wood brings to pizza.
Our oven can reach temperatures above 400° degrees which assures a fast cooking speed of about 90 seconds. This preserves all the precious nutrients.
The oven needs little wood to keep a long during fire going and we have installed an industrial filter to make sure we don't pollute the environment.
For all those who love to eat a fragrant, crunchy and healthy pizza.
