It may be a long way from Dublin to Galway, but you can get the ultimate pizza in the land of the stars.
The frozen pizza has been making a comeback in recent years, with the majority of the frozen pizzeria chain’s stores now in the country.
Now, the Irish Times is reporting that the Irish pizza industry is booming thanks to its popularity in Europe.
The article, which first appeared on the website of the Independent Irish newspaper, describes the new pizza-making methods as “world class”, with frozen pizzerias like Grimaldis Pizza in the city of Dublin.
It says that the pizza is made from ground-up mozzarella, and is then “smothered” with butter, herbs, cheese and toppings.
“This allows the pizzas to be very, very fresh,” one of Grimaldes employees told the newspaper.
“It is amazing what you can do with that kind of dough.”
“Grimaldis is the only frozen pizza place in Ireland,” said a spokesperson for the chain, who asked that their names not be used.
“We’re very proud of what we do, we’re very well known in Europe, we’ve had good customer reviews, and we’ve got good reviews here as well.”
The spokesperson said that the frozen pizza is available in four flavours: white, green, black and orange.
Grimadis Pizza also has a separate menu of pizzas, called Grimaldi Pizzas, that are not frozen.
In recent years there have been reports of people eating frozen pizzes and causing food poisoning, with one person dying after eating a pizza in a restaurant in the UK.
“There’s no reason why you should not eat frozen pizza in Ireland, but the people who do, if they’re in a hurry, then they should wait,” said the spokesperson.
“There’s a lot of restaurants that have this problem.”
A spokesperson for Grimaldus said that it was working to change its practice, and would be opening a restaurant within a few weeks.
