A new artisan pizza franchise is to open in Shrewsbury at the former home of Brooklyn Craft on Castle Gates.

Offering authentic Italian pizzas cooked in record time, the original Fireaway Pizza was opened in by Mario Aleppo in 2016 with the aim of 'bringing better pizza to the UK'. Five years later the franchise lists 55 branches nationwide.

Claiming to be the future of fast pizza, the company offers a wide choice of bases and toppings with gluten free and vegan options available. Build It! pizzas cost £10.99 while sides starting at £3.00 include avocado and halloumi salads, Buffalo Caprese and Chicken Strips. Those with a sweet tooth should check out Fireaway's Nutella pizza variations and Gelato Space Rocks available in chocolate, coffee, pistachio and Oreo flavours.

Fireaway Pizza Shrewsbury opens at 12noon on Monday 15 February. Look out for opening offers on its Facebook page HERE.
