The location: We opened the doors to our Clapton shop, with the help of Macaulay Culkin in May 2014, serving up pizza to the good folk of E5, E8, E9 & N16 for dine-in, table away and delivery. Clapton is our smallest shop, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in heart. You wont find a better place to truly understand what the Yard Sale Pizza buzz is all about.
About Us: Yard Sale Pizza fired up the oven in 2014, starting with weekly supper clubs from our backyard in Hackney. We now offer delivery, dine-in and takeaway in 8 of our favourite neighbourhoods. Known for our collaborations, we’ve teamed up with illustrators, musicians, international chefs & local eateries- all on the quest for the perfect pie!
