New year, new pizza

by Andy Wallis

Pollo e avocado


Every Wednesday evening, we open our doors for our weekly pizza night, where we make authentic, stone baked 11" pizzas fresh to order. Here at loaf HQ, we took some time over Christmas to review our menu and bring in some new combinations and toppings to really kick off 2018.

Last night, we saw the first few of our brand new pizzas come out of the oven... but what are they?

Pollo e avocado

Here, we switched up the Pollo pizza from our original menu (oh how we love to break the rules), and swapped out the wilted spinach for freshly sliced avocado! Yes I know it sounds a bit out there, but just bear with us here; this subtle and satisfying pizza is topped with the following: sliced roast chicken, fresh avocado, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh herbs. We had a few adventurous customers dabble with this last night and were very very impressed. It’s definitely one to watch!


Meaning 'Artichoke' in Italian (oh how fitting I know) this pizza is made up of the following fresh ingredients: Ham, Artichoke hearts, pesto, sun-blushed tomatoes, Goat’s cheese and mixed herbs. The comments we had about this new kid on the block generally went along the lines of 'wow' and ‘that is absolutely fantastic'.


We had just as much fun coming up with some of these pizzas as some of you did trying them!

Vegetarian Calzone

A staff favorite, we wanted to offer a veggie option for the mighty Calzone! Onion, sliced beetroot, chard, cherry tomatoes and mozzarella with mixed herbs all packed into the classic folded pizza; this is a wonderful combination of flavours and is ever so vibrant in colour. Our very own front of house pizza connoisseur, Andy, said “It’s the best pizza I’ve ever had!”
