Yard Sale Pizza

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.

DAMN GOOD PIZZA. I'm a VERY picky pizza eater as a native New Yorker. 99% of the recommended places I have tried in London for their pizza have not just been that great. So this place had a high bar already. I got The Squash and The TSB. Yessssss, delicious flavours for both with a wonderful tomato sauce for the former. The dough is thin but has a great chew factor. The toppings are plentiful. Also the pizza is sliced, which is great as a pet peeve of mine is pizza served unsliced as is the case for Homeslice.

I came in here recently to see what all the fuss was about. Even though I waited ages for a 12" pepperoni, it was worth it. It tasted amazing!

Best pizza I found in London so far! I have been leaving in London for almost 6 years and I'm Italian

Best pizza in London, hands down. And after extensive research in Naples earlier this year, I can confirm this comes very close to some of the best that city has to offer.

By far the tastiest pizza around, and the friendliest local business by a long shot! The current day of the dead special is really quite something - 10/10

The best pizza I've had outside of New York - always a winner and the specials are amazing! (big shout out to the Taco Pizza!). Also you can't fault a place that delivers PBR!

Deliscious pizza with creative toppings in a relaxed setting. Perfect for t/a or eat it in the shop.

The best pizza in London, hands down. Incredibly delicious and very cheap for the quality of food you receive. I have been going here since it opened and have recommended it to dozens of friends who now frequent it almost as much as I do. Amazing pizza!

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.
