Ask anyone in Manchester where their top pizza destination is, the chances are that they will mention one of the following list:
No1 Watson Street
Yelp recently held a blind tasting “Pizza Off” in Manchester with all the big name pizza restaurants named above, alongside new comer Love Pizza. The contestants all entered one choice of pizza each and slices were handed out amongst the 40 judges who attended. Love Pizza secured a win with their popular Tandoori Chicken Heaven!
Walrus came 2nd and Sandbar 3rd – beating out Crazy Pedro’s, PLY, Croma & No1 Watson Street (where the event was held).
We chatted to Yelp’s Manchester community manager Matt, about the competition and the winner.
“I think Love Pizza winning the Pizza-Off just goes to show the talent we have in the city. There were some heavy hitters involved but by making it a blind-tasting competition, the best pizza on the night won! What was great is that we had a whole range of varieties on show; from PLY’s amazing wood-fired pizza to Walrus’s strawberry cheesecake pizza – yep you heard that right. Manchester is a pizza-haven, and with Love Pizza, we now have great options to go out or take away!”
Love Pizza is based in Hulme and offers a wide range of pizzas, wings and sides to suit any taste. Last week we were lucky enough to brighten up our Monday afternoon in the office with a delivery from Love Pizza, so we could try it for ourselves!
Overall it was a huge success! Considering the size of our order, all the food came fresh, hot and on time. The biggest hit amongst the office veggies was the ‘Four Cheese Tease’, while the meat eaters voted the ‘Meat Feast Beast’ and ‘Tandoori Chicken Heaven’ as their favourites. We also couldn’t resist devouring the garlic bread, wings and wedges.
Safe to say we will be ordering from Love Pizza again, as they have become a new office favourite!!
