WHO WE ARE
A duo of pizza lovers with a passion for all things with a crispy base…
Ben and Natalie returned from Italy and have dreamt about owning their very own authentic pizzeria ever since. With a lot of love and support from friends and family members they decided to go for it…and the rest, as they say, is history.
Say hello to The Hidden Gem!
WHAT WE DO
Street food served with vintage charm…wood-fired pizza, of course!
These delicious handmade morsels are cooked to perfection in our vintage horsebox. Available for weddings, parties, festivals, pop ups and village nights, and anything else in-between, in Leicestershire and beyond (aka the Midlands).
WHERE IT STARTED
After returning from back packing around the world with amazing memories and dreams of not going back to the daily rat race, myself and partner Natalie soon found ourselves doing exactly that. Several years and two children later, after a trip to Southern Italy we acquired a passion for Wood fired pizza that we knew we had to share. It started off as a ‘let’s put an oven in the garden and host some parties for family and friends’.
It then evolved into ‘these pizzas are delicious Ben, why don’t you start a business?’…now, there’s a good idea!
After months of research and a lot of help from family and friends, we decided to take the plunge and go for it.
Taking inspiration from our daughters Ruby and Pearl, The Hidden Gem was formed.
We serve wood-fired pizzas from our vintage horse box for parties, weddings and events. Look out for our pop ups and village nights too.
We’re based in Leicestershire but cover the Midlands and beyond.
LET’S TALK PIZZA
Our Pizza dough is made using Caputo flour to produce an authentic thin and crispy base. For the sauce, we keep it simple using the best quality San Marzano Italian tomatoes and a pinch of salt before topping each pizza with your choice of gourmet loveliness. Finally, for the best bit, the Pizza is blasted in our wood-ﬁred oven for a mere 90 seconds resulting in a delicious, crispy and slightly charred gem of a pizza.

At the Hidden Gem we not only serve great pizza, we believe in adding intrigue and excitement to your dining experience.
