Each pizza has a soft and thin base, made with hand-stretched dough and cooked in our stonebake ovens.

Our R2-D2 helmet got a big thumbs up from five-year-old Jack!

Jack

His dad Ben shared this fantastic photo on Twitter and told us: “I’m a huge Star Wars fan and I think it’s rubbed off on him. Think he was about three when he really started to love Star Wars.
