Updated 12/5/16 with opening details and launch offer

The food scene in Finsbury Park is hotting up further with the news that Clapton pizzeria Yard Sale Pizza is opening there soon. The venture, which started out in one of the three founder's back garden, was voted Hackney’s best restaurant in Time Out's 2015 Love London Awards.

The Finsbury Park branch will be on Blackstock Road, just down the road from Salvation in Noodles. Seating around 30, we're told to expect all the usual Yard Sale classic stone baked pizzas - available in both 12” and super­size 18.

There are also some exclusives specially created for N4 folk. The Mullered Mushroom is a collaboration with Hackney's Five Points Brewery - Portobello & oyster mushrooms braised in Five Points 'London Smoke' porter, Pale Ale onion chutney, ricotta, fior di latte mozzarella and finished with thyme and golden promise malt grain. Wash that down with some Five Points Pale Ale and a Five Points Porter and Chocolate Ripple gelato from Nonna’s.

The whole of the first week of opening will see them give away free pizza. Arrive early from 5pm Monday to Thursday or from midday Friday – Sunday for the chance to get your hands on one of the 50 free 12” stone baked pizzas Yard Sale will be giving away daily for locals. 

Yard Sale Pizza opens 13 June 2016 at 54 Blackstock Road, London N4 2DW. Opening hours will be Mon ­-Thu: 5pm ­ 11pm; Fri ­-Sat: 12pm to 11pm and Sun: 12pm to­ 10pm. A delivery service kicks in a couple of weeks later on 27 June. Keep up with their news on Twitter @yardsalepizza
