Toppings galore

Happy National Pizza Day – it’s time to get your pizza-eating game on! That’s right, there’s a whole day dedicated to celebrating the Italian favourite!

We’ve got special pizza ovens in 128 of our pubs up and down the country, so we can serve our customers hand-stretched, freshly cooked pizzas every single day. Did you know we sell a whopping 8486 pizzas every week?! That’s a huge number!

After some research, we can now reveal (drum roll please!) that our top-selling pizza and customer-favourite is Butchers Block. It’s a delicious hand-stretched base topped with pepperoni, Wiltshire ham, mini-meatballs, chipotle pulled chicken and mozzarella. And, the most popular extra topping is pepperoni!

Now we want to hear from you… got a fave topping? Let us know in the comments below 🙂 Why not have a go at making your own and send us a pic at communications@marstons.co.uk?
