Stuck at home? Too tired from homeschooling to cook? Never fear. Yalla’s rounded up the best takeaways and catering services in the capital to help keep you out of the kitchen.
Pizza Di Rocco
When you think about takeaway, pizza usually comes first to the mind. Nothing travels quite as well or arrives quite so tasty as a pizza pie, and when most capital residents ponder pizza delivery, they call Pizza di Rocco.
Pizza di Rocco is already known for its gourmet pizza delivery, but it’s not as well known for its wide range of healthier options for those trying cut carbs or calories. Even hard-core carnivores may not be too disappointed with the vegan range of pizza, so if you are giving healthy eating a go, there’s simply no reason whatsoever to cut out pizza!
Aside from pizza delivery, Pizza di Rocco also have a mobile pizza oven, which can be hired out for parties and functions so everyone can have exactly what they want freshly prepared right before their eyes, because there’s nothing better than that cheesy pull of a fresh slice of a steaming hot pizza pie.
