THE UK's fastest growing pizza takeaway chain is to open up in Dunfermline later this month.

Fireaway will open up its eighth Scottish outlet at 18 Hospital Hill on October 18.

Since launching in London in 2016, the fast food firm has enjoyed spectacular growth and now has more than 125 stores.

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

Fireaway says its success story is based on attention to detail combined with a desire to be different.

Founder Mario Aleppo set out to create an unrivalled pizza experience by going to Italy and meeting farmers who now send him their choicest 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 400 degrees oven.

Fireaway’s mouth-watering 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 branch will open from 12 noon to 11 pm seven days a week and will partner with Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.
