We’re Base Wood Fired Pizza. A totally fresh and contemporary take on pizza. We offer quality, made-to-order, Artizan-style pizzas.


Where we started


Shane Crilly founder of Base Wood Fired Pizza is originally from Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. He studied law in Dublin and went on to train as a Solicitor in London.

Our journey to perfection began when our founder Shane Crilly went to ensure that Base Pizzas met all of the criteria a top quality pizza should consist of; artisanal, fresh, authentic and above all taste delicious. When travelling to the birthplace of pizzas, Naples in Southern Italy Shane forged a partnership with Sergio Giogiudici who ran a local cooperative of Italian producers and farmers.

As a result of this Base can obtain the best Italian ingredients which other Irish competitors do not currently do. He returned to Dublin and set out to improve the standard of pizza in Dublin and to create a pizza that is to inspire healthier choices by offering people real food.

He founded Base in 2008 and opened the first store in Terenure that year and to date has 7 stores across Dublin. 


What we stand for


We want to do one thing, Make incredible pizza.

Influenced by traditional Neapolitan cooking methods and inspired by modern flavours we aim to provide our customers with a superior pizza experience. Providing exceptionally tasty food with a freshly made seasonal menu and efficient, professional and hospitable service. 

Created with Integrity is the mantra we have across all aspects of the business. From the beginning we wanted to create a pizza offering within the Irish market that met all of the criteria a top-quality pizza should consist of; artisanal, fresh, authentic and above all taste delicious.
