Work is taking place to build a specially crafted pizza oven – ready to be installed inside the new-look Southport Market!
600 Degrees, which is based in Southport, is carrying out the work ready for when they move into the building.
600 degrees is a mobile pizza catering company with a difference, a unique experience for events such as weddings, corporate entertaining, music festivals and more.
The new pizza oven means that visitors will be able to enjoy the very best traditional wood-fired pizzas when Southport Market opens this summer.
Building work is currently taking place at the landmark building, on the corner of King Street and Market Street, to transform it into a new food, drink and events hub.
Once complete, the Southport Market will have 11 food and drink units serving up mouth-watering food, supported by fresh produce from Blackhursts Butchers and flexible event and market space.
Dan Johnstone of 600 Degrees said “It all started when I visited The Amalfi Coast and spent some time in Naples, the home of the Neapolitan Pizza.
“I already had a great passion for cooking, so this gave me the inspiration to perfect my homemade pizza dough and follow the authentic methods of cooking pizzas.
“Over the years I have loved entertaining and cooking for friends and family at home with the brick pizza oven. Wanting to share this passion and see more people enjoy his pizza creations, 600 Degrees was born!
“Each day, the dough will be freshly made in the 600 Degrees kitchen in the new Market using only the finest Caputo flour, yeast, salt and water then left to prove for 48 hours. We can’t wait to serve the people of Southport and are excited to be part of this exciting journey.”
Southport Market is being transformed in a £1.4million redevelopment thanks to £900,000 funding through Southport Town Deal and £500,000 through the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
