Do you ever sit down in a restaurant and wish that you could order everything on the menu? Not necessarily because you’re up for a man vs food style showdown, but more because it all looks so tempting. What we’re about to tell you is a place where not only ordering everything off the menu is recommended, it’s pretty much compulsory. Pizza-Pocalypse is a pizza showdown, rounding up the best dough-kneading talent from all over east London to battle it out for £1,000 and the most coveted thing of all, the golden mozzarella trophy.
Pizza is serious business so you know only the best have been invited to participate. Pizza East and Homeslice will be in competition mode, whilst the smaller but no less mighty Yard Sale, Apollo and Born & Raised will also be in it to win it. Forget professional pizzas judges, we’re all pizza pros so attendees will work their way through the whole menu (so five slices) before voting for their favourite. All this is thirsty work so Aperol spritzes and Frontier craft lager will be on hand to refresh before a scoop of Sorbitium’s legendary ice cream satisfies your sweet tooth. The soundtrack to such activity? DJ PHATPLASTIC and a pizza delivery boy barbershop quartet. The pizza doesn’t end when the competition does – hang around for the after party for plentiful margheritas and more drinks. What a time to be alive.
Pizza-Pocalypse is taking place Saturday 27th August, midday-6pm at MC Motors, Dalston. Tickets available online in advance (none on the door) .
