Royal Wootton Bassett pub Sally Pussey’s Inn has launched its first pop-up pizzeria for the third national lockdown.
Using a stone-baked oven that cooks the 12-inch pizzas in 90 seconds and reaches temperatures of 350-450 degrees, the sourdough based Neapolitan-style pizzas are hand-made to order in a large converted shipping container.
Pubs, restaurants and cafes were forced to shut as England once again went into full lockdown on January 4, but they are able to continue with delivery or takeaway.
Last year the Royal Wootton Bassett pub sold an estimated 20,000 burgers after opening its Burger Shack in the car park when covid rules meant the restaurant and carvery had to close.
“We like a challenge and after the success of the Burger Shack we have decided to do something a little different,” said Sally Pussey’s executive chef Ryan Wakeman. “We have teamed up with the Kitchen Garden Pizza Co. who are renowned for their amazing pizzas and toppings.
“The business has to diversify to stay alive and Sally Pussey’s has a loyal following for our food, service and style and we want to continue this with pizza.”
Sally Pussey’s Pizza menu has launched with nine varieties, one third of which are vegan.
Pussey’s Pizza is open daily Thursday to Sunday from 5-9pm. Orders can be placed by calling 01793 852430.
