"I got inspired and motivated to try and bake sourdough pizza at home"


I am a Creative Director, Filmmaker and Photographer. I have always loved cooking, baking, and trying new craft beers, and love to film food-related stuff. I love sourdough products, especially pizza! Since I moved to London and tried all those amazing sourdough pizzas from different restaurants, I got inspired and motivated to try and bake sourdough pizza at home.

"My passion for pizza jumped to the next level."

I used my home kitchen oven, which was great but not like those in pizzerias. Then, after 3 years of baking pizzas in my home kitchen oven, I got my first outdoor pizza oven, which was a game-changer. My passion for pizza jumped to the next level.

I love baking pizzas and taking photos and videos of them in our JRV studio. It’s so relaxing and it makes me happy! I get the same warm feelings while I’m skateboarding, surfing, or snowboarding. I can turn off my brain and just do what I love. During the lockdown, I was working at home and had more time to bake and develop some recipes and here I am, with my fresh sourdough pizza and sourdough-related stuff blog & Instagram!

I’ll post tips and tricks learned on my sourdough pizza journey and everything about good quality ingredients, foods, and pizza!

Ratton Pantry runs a Gozney Dome and we regularly cook on it for events, demos and staff family meals.


After so many good reviews and feedback, about my sourdough pizzas, I decided to launch my Rene’s Pizza Place here in London. I can't wait to share all the sourdough pizzas with you! Our pizza POP-UP is in collaboration with taprooms & pubs, please stay tuned and follow us on social media for updates and dates.

Expect artisan, long-fermented sourdough pizzas inspired by Naples, made in London. The pizzas we bake are made by hand with no shortcuts, from the finest British & Italian ingredients, organic where possible. Our pizzas are made from 100% sourdough, long-fermented (over 40 hours), resulting in an incredibly light and delicious, easy to digest dough.
