The Southside Pizza Co. Launches

Providing New Jobs for Affected Hospitality Workers

New kid on the block, The Southside Pizza Co. is serving up freshly-made New York-style pizzas and more, as well as providing valuable jobs for hospitality workers whose employment has been affected by recent circumstances.

Six delicious sourdough pizzas topped with the finest ingredients, are available for delivery to the Southside including a classic Margherita (HK$100), innovative Butter Chicken (HK$135) and controversial Hawaiian (HK$125) pizza made with fresh pineapple, charred to perfection. The compelling new brand worked with Gregoire Michaud of Bread Elements to create the perfect pizza dough, including a parmesan-dusted crust, that will have people fighting for the last slice.

Two red sauce staples – a comforting Lasagne and Spaghetti with Meatballs (both HK$135) also make for a great meal for one, or can be served as part of a bountiful New York feast.

“We created The Southside Pizza Co. to cater to the underserved Southside of the island. With families staying in and home-schooling, we wanted to do our bit to help put quality meals on the table. We worked with a chef with extensive experience in Michelin-starred restaurants to create a product that delivers well, and is made without any nasty additives. We opted to hire furloughed or unemployed hospitality professionals and have gone one step further by partnering with Impact Hong Kong to provide valuable jobs to the homeless. It’s great to be able to do a bit of social-good during these difficult times,” says The Southside Pizza Co. founder, Jonathan Glover.

Desserts come in the form of three other New York staples – homemade Doughnuts (HK$35 each or $100 for three) filled with chocolate, raspberry or vanilla cream, authentic New York Cheesecake (HK$50), as well as a wedge of Tiramisu (HK$50) that’ll transport diners straight to Manhattan’s Little Italy.

The Southside Pizza Co.’s menu is available via Deliveroo between Wong Chuk Hang and Pok Fu Lam from 5.00-11.00pm on weekdays, and from noon-11.00pm on weekends and public holidays.
