You know those enormous floppy hats that some people insist on wearing in the summer? The ones that look a bit like you’re playing a straw umbrella in a school play? We reckon that if you wore a Yard Sale 18 inch pizza on your head it’d look a bit like that. These pizzas are massive. Enormous. You look like you’ve just come back from Ikea when you’re walking down the road with a box. They’re also so, so good. We love pretty much everything Yard Sale do. From their margherita, to their TSB (tenderstem broccoli, manchego, pine nuts), to the excellently named Cour Blimey. Their cosy diners are spreading as well, like a rash you love to itch. Clapton sits alongside Walthamstow and Finsbury Park (and Leytonstone soon). Oh, and also they’ve struck up partnerships with some of the best pubs in North-East London. So you can have a pint in your favourite local and destroy a pizza. These guys know what they’re doing and we hope they keep doing it for a long time.
