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!

We've got really exciting expansion plans just around the corner and on the look out for great people to join us, so whether or not you see your perfect job, please get in touch and tell us why we should meet!
