If you’re wondering whether this is the pizza place where Macaulay Culkin’s band played, then you’d be right. The ‘Home Alone’ star’s troupe did try out some of their pizza-themed Velvet Underground numbers here.
Luckily the pizza went down better than the rest of The Pizza Underground’s tour, so the crowd won’t be booing these dough pies.
They’re served fresh from the oven in either 12-inch or 18-inch stonebaked sourdough rounds. Toppings range from classic margherita to the meat-tastic ‘Full House’, with pepperoni, spicy ground beef and flavoursome slices of own-made fennel sausage.
And if you do want to ‘Take a Bite of the Wild Slice’ specials include pulled-pork pizza with apple sauce and crackling. We were too scared to try that one, though: it sounds almost as ill-conceived as Culkin’s dreadful covers act.
Speaking of covers, there are only a couple of tables and most of the trade is takeaway, but the jazz-funk soundtrack and chatty staff made it a fun place to hang out on our visit.
To get you in the mood for all tomorrow’s parties there’s Asahi beer, Brooklyn Summer Ale or wine. In case you need to bottle a band off stage.

Best - good choice of traditional and out of the ordinary and quality ingredients, well made in a traditional oven, friendly and caring staff
I love yard sale because the pizzas are epic in size, they're not greasy and the TSB. Oh man, tenderstem broccoli on a pizza? It's next level.
A funky, friendly, local little pizza palour with delicious fresh pizza to takeaway or stay in with a glass of wine. The giant Yard Sale pizza box always makes me smile.
Fun vibe in this Yard Sale store when eating in but i have also often used these guys for their great delivered stone baked pizza which is by far my favorite in London. Highly recommend!
Best Pizza in London hands down and such a great local business! The staff are friendly and the 'love in' specials are always a treat.
Best pizza in London, and the icing on the cake is they sell The Rib Man's Holy F**k Hot Sauce which is a perfect accompaniment. Love Yard Sale!
Not only a great neighbourhood restaurant, awesome takeaway and the only good delivery joint, it's also the best damn pizza I've ever eaten.
I had heard so much about this place that I was really excited to try it, so I ordered a delivery from their new Blackstock Rd location. The menu looked creative and different from most other pizza restaurants in London, which was a promising sign. But the positives pretty much stopped there. The delivery guy promptly ignored my express instructions not to buzz on the door (I have a baby who had just fallen asleep) causing mayhem at home. When I finally got to the pizzas (I ordered two 12" pizzas - pepperoni and broccoli), they were disappointing, especially given all the hype surrounding Yard Sale. The broccoli one was just fine (hence the second star), but the pepperoni was a total let down. The crust was completely overdone and the whole pizza felt like a cheap ready-made item someone popped into the microwave for 5 minutes. It might be that the Blackstock Rd location is new and still learning but, for the time being, there are many, many places that serve far better pizza in the area, let alone the rest of London.
