Situated in the city’s Northern Quarter at what formerly traded as Dough Pizza Kitchen, the launch follows previous openings in Bristol, Brixton, and Hove.
Founded in 2015, the group creates Neapolitan-style pizzas with “its own signature plant-based mozzarella, a unique whole grain sourdough, and carefully selected organic ingredients”.
Moreover, the restaurant offers a full gluten-free menu that is “indistinguishable” from its regular pizzas.
Tim Barclay, co-founder and co-owner at Purezza, said that Manchester has been “on the group’s agenda for years”.
He added: “We’ve had more requests to open in Manchester than any other city in the UK, and it’s truly a pleasure to honour those requests and to finally make it happen.
“We’re really excited about this, and we can’t wait to welcome you through our doors.”
The site itself has been fitted out with “reclaimed and upcycled furniture”, with decorations featuring eco-friendly and organic paints in a drive for sustainability.
