Cal's pizza is, BY FAR, the best pizza in Newcastle. It is, possibly, the best pizza in Britain.
As a native New Yorker born in Brooklyn I have been fortunate enough to eat a lot of fabulous pizza in my life. Cal's Own is right up and exceeds the standards of many New York pizza parlours.
Now, as noted, in some other reviews Cal is an intense person. You're not going to get, "Hi, my name is Cal and I'll be your server tonight. How's everyone doing? Can I get you something to drink. Let me recommend the House Margaritas which are infused with fresh Swedish gooseberries..."
Cal is intensely passionate about pizza and how it is made. Cal isn't running a business. Cal is running an art studio. He's chasing mastery; he's chasing perfection. He doesn't want be as good as the pizzerias in Brooklyn or Naples. He wants to exceed their high standards. Cal may well be the Steve Jobs of pizza. He may not be all warm & cuddly at times but if you want a world class culinary experience then you need to visit this temple of pizza.
I thank him for his fabulous food, for search for excellence and I wish him the very best of luck.
