Beautifully branded second outlet of the popular Hackney pizza place.

Domino’s may still be the answer to hangover prayers, but London has definitely raised its pizza game in recent years. The likes of Pizza Pilgrims, Franco Manca and Homeslice have made ’nduja the new pepperoni and convinced us of a world beyond deep pan. Yard Sale was a late but great addition to the scene; the original Hackney branch opened in 2014, and the modern-but-not-poncy toppings, gluten-free options, keenly priced booze and handsome branding are all present in this second branch in Finsbury Park.

The cute little shop has a lively diner feel, which would be a weird fit for the area if old-school bowling alley Rowans wasn’t a three-minute walk away. Despite a bias towards quick take-out and delivery orders, staff are attentive enough to make your eat-in experience more ‘restaurant’ than ‘takeaway-with-tables’. Piping hot sourdough pizzas are brought over on wooden boards with accompanying cutters (with sharp wheels, fortunately; no dividing a pizza with an implement that’s as sharp as a Babybel).

Flavour combinations are more exciting on the chalkboard than they are in your mouth, but they definitely satisfy, and specials such as the Hell Yeah (spicy spianata salami, romano peppers, guindilla chillies, garlic oil, chilli flakes) offer more daring options. The TSB (tender stem broccoli, manchego, pine nuts) benefitted from a creamy garlic and herb dip to dunk crispy crusts into. Wine chosen by Borough Wines rotates monthly; not always the most desirable drop, but at £9 for 500ml it’ll do fine, especially when there are fantastically squidgy chocolate brownies to chase it with. It probably won’t replace your existing dough-tomato-cheese ritual, but for trendy toppings and a fun setting, Yard Sale’s pizza game is worth a play.

I love that their pizza bases are automatically vegan! Having a vegan base with vegan, veggie, and meat topping options makes it such a great place for meeting up with friend with lots of different dietary requirements. I had a veggie option and thought it was quite nice. I only wish that my pizza base had been a little more crispy.

The Ciao Bella (pancetta, portobello mushrooms, parmesan, black pepper) is a strong contender for best pizza around, however I'm not such a fan of some of the other offerings i.ei the broccoli offering (TSB). The staff are friendly, the venue itself is decent but it's mainly a takeout joint and the pizzas are quality. As with any pizza review I judge them in comparison the Franco Manca, and while Yard Sale is slightly more expensive, the aforementioned is admittedly better than anything FM produces


These are some of my favourite pizzas. The bases are nice and thin and there are a number of great flavours to try with my favourite being the TSB which has broccoli, manchego, pin nuts. There are a few seats inside or their is a option to deliverer if you live in the area. I would recommend trying any of the pizzas on the menu. 


Just eaten there with family. We thought that Zia Lucia made the best pizza in north London, now we have been proved wrong. Ice cream from Nonna's in Highbury was the perfect finish to a totally delicious experience. Yummy!

The pizza produced by these guys is up there with the best! Starting out in 2014 with a shop in Clapton (seats 20ish) Yard Sale has since been mentioned in any top pizza article, competition, conversation... and rightly so. Their 2nd shop in Finsbury seats 28 however also delivers to the local post codes. While visiting a friends new flat we opted for the later annnnd I wanted to say that ordering delivery was worth the wait but the usual Dominoes wait (over an hour) turned out to be a measly 20 minutes. This surprisingly efficient delivery meant 3 pizzas and a garlic bread (coming to £35 with a small delivery charge - well worth the money) was with us lickety split! 

On to the main event: The base was light and crispy with a nice crust. The toppings for the most part are a little different to the norm, which is nice, and are also generously topped. My favourite was the broccoli and pine nuts along with the delicious cheesy garlic bread. Needless to say we were absolutely stuffed.

Their newest shop is opening soon in Walthamstow (near me) - gone are the days of greasy expensive takeaways!

A welcome new addition to the area, great selection of pizzas and speedy delivery. Highly recommend!


Good value, great ingredients on a menu that doesn't just rely on masses of cheese. How pizza should be.


great friendly atmosphere delicious innovative flavours, great addition to the neighbourhood


Forget average, cheap and cheerful. Go there for quality, and outstanding oven baked pizzas made from scratch, on the premises. Thanks Yard Sale


Fantastic pizza place who were happy to cater for my vegan needs - made me very happy!


I am a fan of the original one in Clapton, but this one is nearer my house. The dine in space, and den at the back make it great for big groups and its the same delicious pizza! Whole heart-idly recommend!


Hot staff (especially that Greek front of house)... sexy pizza... what more can you ask for?


great service, probably the best pizza in north london, ingredients are the top!


Authentic Italian Pizza - a must visit location if you are anywhere near this area
Pizza's are wonderful. I particularly like the TSB (Tender Stem Broccoli)


Best pizza in town! Great exciting flavours and a great team too boot. What more could you want!


18" stone baked pizzas in a cool hangout overlooking their giant oven. Service is always friendly and non fussy. Wash down with brownie and borough wine.
