Like Velcro and the pyramids, there are certain things that were almost certainly given to the world by some supernatural power. The staple food of college students, morning-after party-goers and everybody within grabbing distance of a take-out menu, pizza is one of those things that is simply too marvellous to have been invented by mere mortals. Discover the secrets of real pizza at Guido’s Mount Pleasant, with two Regina, Calzone, South Seas, Tikka Chicken or Tonno pizzas for R55.
Unlike other restaurants which have taken pizza and turned it into a mass-produced fiend which, while still cheesy and delicious, flies in the face of Pizza Tradition, Guido’s Mount Pleasant does pizza the way it was meant to be done. With home-made bases freely sprinkled with hand-shredded cheese, a bite of one of their pizzas is like a step back to simpler days, when flat bread with stuff on it didn’t come out of a bag and wasn’t zapped in an electric-oven for ten minutes and carelessly labelled Authentic Italian. The real wood-burning ovens and unique cheeses give Guido’s Mount Pleasant pizza an added, tasty edge.
A family-friendly restaurant in more than just their name and the addition of a ball-pit to their floor plan, Guido’s Mount Pleasant prides themselves on not only their authentic pizza and varied menu, but also on their strong family following. With two delicious pizzas and a warm and friendly vibe, what better place to get better acquainted with the almost supernatural secrets of flat-breaded deliciousness?
Flat-bread Fact: The first pizza was discovered on a seat in a down-town New York opera house. A statue of the discoverer of the magical food, a panda-dog by the name of Frankie, was placed in Central Park only two days later.
