DELIVITA bringing a taste of Italy to the Tour de Yorkshire

Lifestyle company DELIVITA has commissioned a “Tour de Yorkshire Yellow” wood fired oven to cook for visitors and media at the forthcoming three-day road race.

The special edition oven will be signed by some of the world’s best cyclists and then auctioned to raise money forAlzheimer’s Society.

DELIVITA which produces hand-made wood-fired ovens and artisan pizza dough, will be setting up a pizza station in the media access area at the Scarborough stage, and at the finish line in Stocksbridge.

The wood-fired oven, which will be totally unique, is being made in partnership with fellow Yorkshire manufacturer MPM.

Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire said: “We’re delighted this fantastic Yorkshire company is a part of the Tour de Yorkshire.  

“We will have hundreds of journalists descending on the county during the race and not only do we want them to be writing about the cycling action, we want them to be writing about Yorkshire; our great scenery, our great people and of course our great food and hospitality.”

DELIVITA was set up by Huddersfield-based uncle and niece Joe Formisano and Olivia Robinson, with the ethos of bringing fresh, organic Italian cuisine to the UK.

The firm has recently launched its flagship products- sleek wood-fired ovens which can cook pizza in just 90 seconds, and delivered-to-your-door artisan Italian dough.

DELIVITA co-founder Joe Formisano said: “We’re very excited to get involved with the Tour De Yorkshire. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a Tour de Yorkshire yellow oven.

“We’re feeding the media over the weekend and heavily involved in Welcome to Yorkshire’s plans. Raising money for Alzheimer’s Society is another bonus; it’s a charity that is very close to our hearts as we have sadly lost family members to the disease.”

“We’re sure everyone will enjoy fresh, traditional Italian pizza cooked up in our hand-made wood-fired ovens and perhaps it will provide a much needed refuel for the cyclists at the finish line.”

DELIVITA will be cooking up fresh pizza at the Tour de Yorkshire, at Scarborough on the 28th and Fox Valley on the 30th April.
