TV boxsets and pizza have a whole lot in common.
They’re both awesome, and every time you start one you end up finishing the whole thing in one sitting, leaving you feeling a bittersweet mixture of awe and guilt.
If that wasn’t enough, they also happen to go really well with each other, as the pizza boxes next to your sofa can attest to.
This relationship between pizza and TV is so powerful, we decided to look a little closer at the phenomenon to see if certain pizzas in our menu had the same thematic DNA as certain TV shows.
Our findings were astounding. Read on.
MARGHERITA = Friends
Starring: tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil
Both are simply irresistible and irresistibly simple.
If someone tells you they don’t like Margherita pizza or Friends, then they’re being so picky that you should actually feel sorry for them for depriving themselves of two of life’s most basic and pure pleasures.
PEPPERONI = Stranger Things
Starring: tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni
The Pepperoni pizza is an American cultural icon, and Stranger Things is basically an 8 hour long nostalgic celebration of all-things USA through the eyes of a 80s Hollywood cinema nerd.
Gooey monsters. Spielbergian action. High school romance. Pepperoni pizza. Welcome to the United States of America.
THE ITALIAN STALLION = The Sopranos
Starring: mozzarella, pepperoni, garlic mushrooms
The greatest TV series of all time has found its perfect match in our Italian Stallion pizza, a slice of which is quite simply an offer you cannot refuse.
The Italian connection here is obvious. It’s the gut-busting punch of awesome that you need to experience yourself to know how similarly mindblowing each of these creations are.
THE BEET GOES ON = The Gilmore Girls
Starring: artichoke purée, goat’s cheese, beetroot, fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, roasted peppers, basil, parmesan
This vegetarian delight is wholesome, exciting and does nothing but make you feel good.
That’s why it’s the perfect fit for the Gilmore Girls, a show that just wants you to sit back, relax and feel all kinds of warm inside.
LAMB BABA GANOUSH / The Wire
Starring: ground lamb, baba ganoush, rose harissa, fresh mozzarella, feta, crème fraîche, coriander, pomegranate
You’ve heard incredible things about it, but when people describe it to you it’s hard to understand what all the fuss is about.
‘Just watch it and you’ll see’. The same goes for this pizza. Once you’ve had a taste, you’ll be the one constantly telling people how it’s the best pizza of all time and ‘you just won’t get it until you’ve experienced it’.
THE FIFTY FIFTY = Scrubs
Starring: Half and half of whatever you like
Sometimes you want a TV show that’ll make you laugh. Sometimes you want to sit in bed and cry for an hour.
If you can’t decide, Scrubs is the answer. One second you’ll be laughing like everything in the world is okay, then the next scene will crush your heart like a fly.
Our Fifty Fifty pizza is made for those who can’t decide.
Now, it’s time to open up a new tab on your browser, get on Netflix and get yourself in the mood for some pizza.
We’ve just revamped our pizza selection, so now there’s really only one place to go for your slice of pizza heaven.
