Italian entrepreneur and former Formula One boss Flavio Briatore is to open a second London-based Crazy Pizza restaurant early next month in Knightsbridge.

The restaurant will take on the Hans Crescent site previously occupied by Maia Italian Brasserie, which was also owned Briatore’s Billionaire Lifestyle Group.

Crazy Pizza Knightsbridge will feature an open kitchen with a section dedicated to making fresh mozzarella, as well as a DJ both.

The pizza’s ‘yeast free’, thin-crust bases are made from a secret recipe and cooked in a Morello oven.

Toppings include the brand’s signature ‘Tartufo’, which features Sicilian tomato, buffalo mozzarella and shavings of fresh black truffle.

Other pizzas include the ‘Pata Negra’ featuring iberico ham, buffalo mozzarella and tomato sauce; and the ‘Crazy Pizza Focaccia’ with mozzarella, bresaola, tomato, rocket and parmesan.

The restaurant will have 90 indoor covers, with an extra 24 available on the terrace.

Briatore, who resigned from his role as boss of Renault’s Formula One team in 2008 amid a race fixing scandal, opened Crazy Pizza’s first London restaurant last year​ in Marylebone.

The chain also has sites in Monte Carlo, Porto Cervo and Dubai.
