With a busy take away and delivery outlet established in Rathmines, the Tiger Wood Fire Pizza brand is expanding and opening their second Dublin location in the leafy suburbs of south Dublin on Deansgrange Road. Tasty, fresh and delicious sourdough pizzas are what customers can expect from the new Tiger Wood Fire Pizza in Deansgrange.

Tiger Wood Fire Pizza founder, Tadhg Leonard was determined to create a pizza takeaway like no other even by reviving traditional methods of pizza making. Tadhg created his own unique sourdough culture which is added to 4 basic ingredients; 00 flour, water, salt and olive oil to make the distinctive Tiger Wood Fire Pizza sourdough base. In respecting culinary tradition, Tiger Wood Fire Pizza follows a unique 4 day long process to achieve the perfect sourdough base:

Day 1 – The process begins by firstly feeding Tadhg’s homemade sourdough culture daily and leaving it to prove for 24 hours.

Day 2 – The culture is then blended with water and flour to make a liquid starter that proves for a further 24 hours.

Day 3- The liquid starter is mixed into a frim dough before being separated into dough balls, rolled by hand by skilled Pizzaiolos and left to prove for a another 24 hours.

Day 4 – Each dough ball is opened by hand before being topped with fresh ingredients and cooked to order in the Tiger Wood Fire Pizza ovens.

Cooked to order, using the best ingredients Tiger Wood Fire Pizza are pride themselves on their low food miles and supporting local artisan producers. Customers can enjoy toppings such as Toonsbridge Fior di Latte Mozzarella, local organic spinach and rocket as well as smoked scamorza, chorizo and serrano ham all from local Irish farms.

Commenting on the new store opening, founder Tadhg Leonard says; “Opening our second restaurant shows that dedication to our ancient craft of pizza making is what the Irish customer wants, our pizzas are tastier, fresher and better for you than other takeaways – our sourdough is naturally better for digestion and our fresh ingredients speak for themselves. Our ethos at Tiger is to use the best local produce, cooked fresh, from scratch.
