It was big smiles and mouth-watering smells at Enso this week as they were voted the makers of The Perfect Greystones Pizza.
Voted for by the public, the fact that the town has seen a tripling of pizza outlets in the last five years made the win all the more prestigious.
“When we first began getting Enso ready for Greystones, there were three outlets in the town where you could grab pizza,” says founder Tim Crooks. “Today, it’s like every third business in the town has pizza. And coffee, of course.”
Sponsored by Sherry FitzGerald, the voting saw contenders such as The Pizza Truck, Pigeon House and Domino’s feeling the Greystones love, but it was obvious early on that one particular pizza joint in the town was most likely going to win.
“Seeing not only the votes but the positive comments was actually very moving,” says Crooks, as he accepted his award from Sherry Fitzgerald’s Eamonn Foley and Lydia Casey. “It really meant a lot to us.”
“And having my mum ring me every day to read out the latest pretty much made my month,” he added.
The lucky voter chosen randomly for a €50 voucher to the winning pizzeria went to Sigita Alis.
