Eating Out In Leeds: Mod Pizza

Best Places To Eat in Leeds

Mod Pizza opened their first build-your-own pizza restaurant in the UK here in Leeds last year on the Cardigan Fields complex in Kirkstall. Typically, we had just moved from our little rented house that was 10 minutes walk away, but we still managed to visit plenty of times for our custom topping pizzas!

Mod Pizza is an American brand and they brought over their well known customer service values to their restaurants in the UK – when you walk in the door the staff greet you with a joyful “hello” and even send you off with a chorus of “goodbyes” when you leave. The decor is very American Diner/Dive Bar which I think is a really fun combination with old, repurposed wooden panels on the walls, graffiti style decor and a mishmash of photos from around the community. There’s even a space where you can add your own stamp by signing your name on a Mod sticker and adding it to the collage.

The best part, though, is obviously the pizza! The whole set up is very ‘Subway’ style where you choose your own sauce base, cheeses, meats, vegetables and toppings such as extra cheese, pesto drizzle and chilli flakes. You can get your traditional tomato and barbecue sauce base, but I love to opt for a pesto base instead! My favourite meats are the canadian ham and spicy sausage and for a little bit of my five-a-day I add artichokes and roasted garlic or some jalapenos.

Similar to the amazing drinks fountain you get in Five Guys, you can choose to add flavourings to your Coke, Fanta and Sprite drinks with free refills and theres also a selection of fresher juices like traditional lemonade. If you want something a bit different they also offer beers and amazing milkshakes that you can add chunks of salted caramel and mint chocolate to.

Build Your Own Pizza Leeds

Not long after Mod Pizza opened all my besties came to stay in Leeds. We headed out to Cardigan Fields for a fun afternoon of build your own pizza and really terrible bowling! We had such a great time at Mod that we went back the following day for lunch too, haha! It’s definitely a treat and really filling too as you can get as many toppings as you want for the same price. If you’re not good at choosing though, don’t worry as they have some ready made pizza topping ideas for you too!

Crafty Fox Market Leeds & Coming to Sheffield!

Crafty Fox Market Leeds

A couple of months ago the Crafty Fox Market packed up it’s bags and headed north to bring it’s awesome craft fair to Leeds. The market was held at the Black Swan on Call Lane and was packed out with two whole floors of amazing handmade goodies as well as workshops running by amazing crafty folk.

I popped along on the Sunday to see some pals and support my local independents… oh and to enjoy a lovely fruit beer, brewed by the great folks at Kirkstall Brewery ;)

Here’s a little peek of what you could find on the day:

They’re teaming up with the handmade marketplace Folksy and the cool, creative co-op Roco for the weekend market so make sure you get down for all your handmade Christmas presents!
