Enjoy a gourmet pizza at one of Nottingham’s pizzerias this evening. Nottingham has long had a love affair with pizza. It probably dates back to the 1930s, when Italians started arriving in the city for the first time. Many were seeking work in Nottinghamshire's mines and factories, but they soon discovered an even better way to make a living: opening pizzerias in Nottingham and supplying the city with pasta, pizzas and other Italian dishes. Nowadays, the city is full of great pizzerias, where high-quality ingredients and artisan chefs cook up a taste of Italy in the East Midlands.
