I ate at UK’s ‘cheapest takeaway’ and was pleasantly surprised – a 12-inch pizza cost just £6.60 | The Sun

A TAKEAWAY dubbed one of the cheapest in the UK serves 12inch pizzas for just £6.60.

Ali's Chippery & Curry House in Preston, Lancashire, offers the cheesy treat for a fraction of the national average of £9.15.


Despite being a bargain, the fast food joint apparently doesn't compromise on flavour.

Customers love the "first class" curries and "properly-made" pizza bases, according to online reviews.

Fatima Aziz ordered a 12in pepperoni from the "simplistic" chippy this week and loved it.

She told LancashireLive: "I'm of the opinion that when you order a pepperoni pizza, you don't need anything fancy.
