Artisan Sourdough Pizza
The secret of our pizzas is in the delectable sourdough base. The yeast culture is allowed 24 hours to work its magic in a temperature-controlled environment, giving it time to break down the gluten and other elements in the flour to produce a base that’s tastier, lighter, crispier and easier on your tummy than regular dough – many of our customers comment that they don’t feel heavy after eating a RELOAD pizza. Our dough is hand stretched, never rolled, to maintain its integrity before baking.
Naturally, our ingredients are also of the highest quality, and we make many of our toppings from scratch, like our 8-hour slow roasted Jack Daniels BBQ pulled pork.
Cape Town Magazine July 2020: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DOUGH
“At RELOAD in Blouberg, they do things a bit differently. The chefs have swapped out the usual yeast pizza dough for a more chewy and textured sourdough base, and Candyce Bester is here for it. “It’s the best sourdough pizza in Cape Town. I’ve eaten pizza in Rome, Florence, Pisa and Livorno in Italy and I can hand on heart say that RELOAD at Leadville is world-class”, Bester told us.”
RELOAD was founded in 2013 by Kilaan. We focused primarily on craft coffee and offered a small, limited food menu. Through trial and error and in response to our customers’ wants and needs, the company evolved. Today we offer a full menu with a range of healthy, scrumptious dishes created by chef and cookbook author Gael Oberholzer.
We’re a small team of Capetonians with a love for socialising and the café lifestyle. We appreciate quality of life and experiences above everything, and love giving good, memorable times to our customers and everyone whom we deal with.
RELOAD is run on strong eco principals. Founder and owner Kilaan is passionate about nature and plants, which is the motivation of both shops green and natural theme
