New Fireaway Pizza in Ealing brand’s ‘only Halal branch’HALAL STATUS Fully Halal
All our toppings and food are 100% Halal, el hamdu’Allah. … We don’t use any pork and we don’t serve alcohol.
Fireaway Pizza in Ealing may have launched earlier this month, but we’ve been told that it could be the franchise’s first fully Halal store.
This is the brand’s eighth London restaurant and 26th overall, with one even in Scotland, having opened its first branch back in 2016.
Its pizzas are made from “fresh handmade dough” in a 400 degree fire oven in “around 180 seconds” using a recipe introduced by founder Mario Aleppo’s grandmother from the Amalfi Coast of Italy in the 1950’s.
The Ealing branch has confirmed with FtLion: “All our toppings and food are 100% Halal, el hamdu’Allah. The ham is also halal – it’s turkey ham. We don’t use any pork and we don’t serve alcohol, only soft drink and milkshakes, etc.”
While there are a few on Just Eat and Deliveroo that are designated Halal, the Ealing branch’s owner believes: “As far as I’m aware, we’re the only Halal branch.”
Not only does this store offer “fresh unlimited toppings”, but they “use top quality products from the UK and Italy”.
The website states: “This might mean slightly higher costs but we know it keeps customers coming back for that unique taste. Our pizzas have minimal grease and fresh vegetables everytime. At Fireaway we have a choice of 4 bases 4 cheeses 4 meats 20 vegetables. This is the future of fast pizza!”
And they aren’t done yet. Fireaway Pizza has plans of opening five more, although it’s uncertain as to whether these will be catering for Halal or not.
