A NEW pizza restaurant has opened in Swindon's town centre.

Fireaway claims to be the UK’s fastest-growing pizza takeaway chain and now has a branch at 24 Commercial Road.

The company launched London in 2016 and now has 90 outlets across the country, with its 100th store fast approaching.

Founder Mario Aleppo started the chain after going to Italy and meeting farmers who now send him their best peeled tomatoes directly from Naples.

He then negotiated with mills in northern Italy who prepare the flour to his own specifications. These are brought together on a daily basis to ensure freshness and baked for no more than three minutes in a 400-degrees oven.

The menu provides pizza lovers with a choice of four bases, four cheeses, four meats and 20 toppings, all available for the same price.

Among them is the Nutella Pizza, which is unique to Fireaway.Mario said: “We like to innovate and have also introduced the full range of gluten-free and vegan options to ensure there is something for everyone.”

The new branches are open from 12 noon to 11 pm seven days a week and are partnered with Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.

In 2021 they won Rising Star Pizza Chain of the Year at the PAPA Awards.
