Pizza Santa has been established since 1990. It has this very unusual name for a takeaway. The man who started the business was a Jordanian, who had spent a little time living in America. He ordered a large exterior sign from the sign makers over the telephone in his broken English and American accent. When the sign arrived, he was astonished at what the sign maker had brought him. He thought he had ordered a sign reading ‘Pizza Centre’ and here he was, with a laughing Santa Clause reading ‘Pizza Santa’. After a lot of arguing and swearing as you could imagine, the shop was named Pizza Santa. (Try the American accent, it is a mistake easily made).
Due to commitment and hard work in 1995 Santa’s became one of the first outlets in the UK to gain the right to display the Pizza & Pasta Associations ‘Symbol of Excellence’. This was prior to the achievement of 1994, when the ‘European Food and Drink Association’ awarded Santa’s as one of their ‘Top UK Takeaways’. Santa’s was also a finalist in the National Awards for the ‘Pizza & Pasta Independent UK Takeaway & Home Delivery’ operator of the year 2001. Most recently Santa’s were named ‘Takeaway Of The Year’ in 2015 at The Food Awards England, who celebrate and reward the very best in English food hospitality.
For a revolutionary concept, the formula is simple: to make truly delicious food using the highest quality ingredients, and to deliver and present them in our own style.
Santa’s caters not only for the local residents, but also through home delivery to the wider surrounding areas. With the latest equipment, dough is freshly made everyday, ingredients are of the highest quality, pizzas are cooked on conveyor ovens, and the whole customer ordering process encompasses technology at its best.
Our success is based on the philosophy of quality food and a superior service. This has provided Santa’s with a loyal following and many accreditations as the preferred food outlet.
