Taking full advantage of the first bit of sunshine to come our way in what feels like decades, I went full little-Englander and sought out the highly recommended Corner Stone Pizza in Sherwood; a quaint little pizza place that allowed me to feast on an eclectic menu selection whilst dining al fresco.
The greeting I received when I first arrived felt more akin to being welcomed into a friend’s house; it was clear from the get-go that these guys cared about their customers. Without wanting to sound contradictory, the menu was both simple and wide-ranging. You aren’t bogged down with an endless list of pizzas that are essentially the same as one-another, but there is doubtlessly something for everyone, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Refreshingly, pizzas were available both whole and as as individual slices (during lunch), offering five meat and five veggie options in full pizza form, and eight different varieties by the slice.
I plumbed for a pair of veggie slices: one classic cheese and tomato and another with roasted red peppers, red onion, chilli and feta, with a side dish of sweet potatoes topped with whipped feta and spring onions. The food arrived in an impressive time, and was everything you could hope for from a pizza and more.
The base was the combination of faultless texture and taste, and the toppings were fresh, delicious and, in the case of the peppers, onions, chilli and feta slice, complimented each other impeccably. The sweet potatoes were cooked to perfection, and the whipped feta topping was an innovative, delectably welcome addition.
With its eccentric ‘storage container’ setting, stunning food, relaxed ambience and superb customer service, it’s impossible to recommended Corner Stone Pizza highly enough. And what’s more, they even offer a delivery service to the nearby Kraft Werks bar. Get on it.
