Whilst COVID-19 still causes disruption across the town, one local restaurant owner has taken the decision to offer residents and front line workers a huge 50% off on their menu.

While the government launched the ‘Eat out to Help out’ scheme, the new Mio Gusto was still under renovation which meant potential customers were unable to take advantage of the scheme. Now owner Yashar Koksal, owner of Mio Gusto, has taken the decision to give his customers an even better scheme to promote and offer their whole menu at an even greater discount of 50% off all food (drinks not included).

Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera officially opens Mio Gusto.

The Pizzeria has already gained rave reviews from customers since it was opened by Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera.

Executive Chef Yasar Koksal is working alongside his Head Chef Francesco Furrielo to create the exciting menu.

But Mio Gusto is a much more exciting concept than a traditional Pizzeria. It’s elegant menu has taken customers by storm with dishes you would usually expect to find in a Michelin Star venue.

The relaxed setting of the restaurant based underneath Rhythm Nightclub at 107 High Street, Crawley, has been completely redesigned with an elegant style that, even with the social distancing rules, still makes you feel comfortable and engaged with the ambience.

Mr Koksal said:

“It is vital that we keep our local economy moving and don’t just give up. This is why I am launching this offer to everyone.”

The offer is open to any customers and applies to all their food, starters, mains and deserts.

Mr Koksal said that the offer will be reviewed for residents after two weeks, but will remain in place for all front-line workers till the end of the year.

Mio Gusto is open seven days a week from 12pm to 10pm with last orders at 9.

Sittings are available at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 8pm.

You only need a bowl and a baking tray. A rolling pin will help, but if you don't have one just use a clean tin on its side to roll out the dough.

Instructions
  1. Heat an oven to 200 degrees Celsius and place a baking tray in side so it heats up. Empty a tin of chopped tomatoes into a sauce pan and heat till it is bubbling away. Leave to simmer so it reduces down remembering to stir it frequently so it does not burn. You only want it reduced down so it is not so watery. Meanwhile make the dough.
  2. Mix the flour and yeast together
  3. Add the oil and mix, then slowly add the water until you it becomes a dough. You don't want the dough too dry.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and need it well. It should become very stretchy as you work it, but if not dampen your hands in water and then need some more. Roll into a ball.
  5. Now you have a choice, deep pan or thin crust? If you want deep pan then put back into your bowl and cover with clingfilm for 30-45 mins before continuing. If you want thin crust then continue to the next step.
  6. Once your dough is ready roll out into whatever pizza shape you want. If you have a baking tray you can roll it out to the full size of it - the dough will stretch right out with a thin crust but not so much if you want it deep pan.
  7. Once the oven is at temperature take out the hot baking tray and drizzle a small amount of olive oil on it then using oven gloves tip the tray around so it gets coated in the oil.
  8. Add your pizza onto the tray then spoon on the reduced tinned tomatoes which will now have become a thick sauce.
  9. Add on grated cheese and then add your pepperoni.
  10. Bake in the oven for approx 20 mins, but keep checking to make sure it doesn't burn.
  11. Once ready turn out and eat while hot and delicious.
Recipe Notes

Remember the thinner you roll out the dough the larger the pizza base will be so if you want a deep pan base then make sure you do do not make it quiet so large.
