God knows I love a pizza. Always, all ways, I’m keen. I’m spoilt in Clapton with not one but two awesome pizzerias, Sodo and Yard Sale Pizza, both of which probably think “Oh god, not her again”, ‘cos I can always eat the place empty (and actually once at Sodo when they ran out of dough…).
Yard Sale love a collaborative project. They dipped their fingers in the water last Burns Night and paired up with Deeney’s for a Haggis Pizza, and now they’re back at it again. They weren’t going to let their first birthday go down without a bang so they took the opportunity to pair up with fellow Monty’s Deli — the home of London’s favourite pastrami sandwiches.
Though not quite the collab’ for me as a non-meat eater, I can appreciate it regardless (pizza, good; pastrami, gooooood), the fruit of their labour being a calzone packed with pastrami, sauerkraut and fior de latte mozzarella, available for one week only until 9th June. (Run, quick!!)
We went down for their birthday party to share well wishes and more importantly sample the limited-edition creation. Whilst I couldn’t obviously try it (don’t worry, I didn’t miss out, I devoured margarita slices by the dozen) Ed reassures me — and you — that’s it delicious, a combo that works, and ultimately worth racing all the way over here for. Remember though, be quick, it’s only available this week.
Happy Birthday Yard Sale. Looking forward to another year of pizza. (And hey, make the next collab’ veggie, yeah?)
