This is Sugo

When you think of pizza, you'll probably think of a round one with tomato sauce, cheese and toppings on it. At Sugo, you eat pizza, but not this kind of pizza...

At this new place on the Nieuwstraat, you eat pizza al taglio (pronounced as a taljo). Here you will find a display filled with fifteen different flavors of this rectangular shaped, healthy pizza. "Our pizzas contain a lot of protein and relatively few carbohydrates", owner Hugo Kruijssen explains. Prior to Eindhoven, Sugo's were opened in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. And after Eindhoven, it is Utrecht's turn. "You can have a good and fast meal at any of our locations. We also advise how many slices are ideal for lunch or dinner. Our pizzas are very light but they are nourishing.”

Fifty flavors

The manager of the Eindhoven branch, Sander Weegels, joins the conversation and puts some variations of the pizza al taglio on the table. Sander: "We have about fifty flavors of which we have fifteen on display every day. So you can discover new flavors every time. The taste palette is very varied. They offer something for fans of a simple salami pizza or pizza Margherita but also for daredevils who want to experiment with different flavors. What about pizza with tomato sauce, mascarpone, caramelized onion, walnut and olives?” The crusts are baked first, then garnished and then baked again. Hugo: "The garnish and the crust generally require a different baking time. By baking the crust first, we have much more choice in types of delicious toppings.” Hugo also lets us sample a piece of baked crust without topping: a crispy taste explosion. “And that with only some added salt and oregano!”

Roman origin

Originally, the pizza al taglio comes from Rome. Hugo: “Our great source of inspiration is Gabriele Bonci. He took the pizza al taglio to the next level. The traditional pizza al taglio has only four or five flavors. Bonci has changed the product and started experimenting. That is also something we like to do.” Sander: “One of our flavors is the vegan garden. This pizza is very popular, even with die-hard meat eaters. We always have a wide range of vegetarian and vegan pizzas. Of course, the meat and fish eaters are also served to their liking. One of the best things about our product is that it is much healthier than the usual round pizza. The crust contains no fat and no extra cheese is needed as a topping to make it a tasty dish.”

Only place in Eindhoven

In the run-up to the opening of Sugo, many Italians living in Eindhoven stopped by at the restaurant. Hugo: “They were already at the door before we were open. Here in Eindhoven, we are the only one who offers this kind of product, but when you go to Italy you will find pizza al taglio restaurants everywhere. Italians eat this like the Dutch eat a sandwich at noon.” Sugo also provides catering for a group lunch. "On the same day that it is ordered, we can deliver a varied lunch for a maximum of 50 to 60 people."
