One of our all-time faves, Yard Sale Pizza opened its fifth site on Hackney Road back in September. If you’re not familiar with Yard Sale Pizza, where have you been! It’s basically one of the best pizza joints in London since starting life out in Clapton, and going on to open in Finsbury Park, Walthamstow, Leytonstone and now Hackney Road.
Set across two floors, with tables and a bar in the basement that’s been kitted out with leather booths and high tables. There’s neon on the walls and their limited edition merch to buy… hey, if you love pizza, join the cult and grab a Tee. Upstairs you’ve got the main action with the kitchen, that all-important pizza oven and it’s where you can collect takeaway – Yard Sale Pizza also deliver via their own in-house delivery service.
The pizza is as good as it has always been. We can’t resist ordering the Holy Pepperoni because why would we want to miss out on that; cobble Lane pepperoni, Napoli piccante, and crumbled Nduja sausage. The TSB, another signature with tender stem broccoli, parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil is another go-to for us. We chomped down on the New Porker also; fresh Sicilian sausage, guindilla chillies, garlic, oregano and fresh basil – we loved every bite.
Specials come and go and often entail super collabs from foodie legends the world over. Desserts are looked after by Happy Endings, the greatest ice cream sandwiches in London. There’s borough wines (love) and local beers… how could they get any better?
You’re guaranteed great pizza and with this being their biggest site, you can get a table with a load of mates and chew the fat till yonda.
