Pizza Punks pride themselves on creating mouth-watering food, inventing unusual cocktail recipes and leaving a lasting impression on their customers. Already located in three cities across the UK – Glasgow, Belfast and Newcastle, the team has picked Leeds to be their next port of call, with a brand-new restaurant opening on Bond Street in the city centre on Saturday 11th September. They will be launching with a bang, offering the first 1000 people to register here on their website a free pizza or pasta dish during the opening weeks. That’s 1000 lucky punks!
Forget Neopolitan or New York-style pizzas. Pizza Punks likes to do things differently and uses handcrafted San Franciscan sourdough for their pizza bases. Packed full of flavour, the dough is proved for 48hours before being cooked in authentic wood-fired ovens. Not only that, but customers have the freedom to create their own Pizza Punks experience, their way, with over 50 unlimited toppings, hand-made on-site, available for one flat fee!
Speaking about the new restaurant launching in Leeds, owner, Brad Stevens, said: “At Pizza Punks we do things differently and don’t conform to the norm when it comes to making incredible food that appeals to everyone. We offer customers the freedom to make the experience their own because pizza is the new punk and there are no hard and fast rules with it. Our restaurants provide the perfect spot for meeting with friends and family, sharing great food and drinks and having an epic time.
For us it is about providing excellent quality ingredients as well as unrivalled levels of customer service because it’s not just about the food, it’s about having fun. Our attitude is all geared towards helping our customers have the best time when they visit our restaurants. Leeds will be no different and we are looking forward to having a new customer base that will join the Pizza Punks movement.”
As well as sourdough pizza, customers can try fresh pasta, hand-made in the restaurant each day, topped with the finest Italian ingredients like Tuscan Sausage, Nduja, San Marzano tomatoes, garlic and basil. Wash everything down with craft beer or a killer cocktail, all with far-out names like ‘Dead Punks Society’ - a mix of tropical juices and tiki fire rum; and ‘Mallowdramatic’ – vanilla vodka with kahlua and gomme.
Pizza Punks currently ranks first across all three cities on Tripadvisor and was voted the best Italian restaurant in the Deliveroo restaurant awards in 2019. Not only that, but they also have vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian and Halal options available proving that no matter how you like your food, all punks are catered for!
