because life is too short
for average food
Uncle Pete’s was dreamed into existence in 2003 as a pizza delivery shop. Young(ish) chef Aaron Buckley had spent the previous 10 years abroad and upon his return home was shocked at the standard of pizzas the good folks of Cork had to eat!
So with a fiery determination he set about righting that terrible wrong and vowed to bring great tasting ‘real’ food to the Irish people. He read loads of books and travelled up and down Italy and then, for good measure had a crack off trying some of the finest pizzerias in the USA too.
Knowing how independent his fellow Corkonians were, he decided to make a pizza special for them and after much experimenting Aaron finally settled on an Italian American style thin base, a rich garlic tomato sauce and variety of fresh local toppings.
