However, while I was happy with my Domino’s Chicken meal, I recently decided to try World Pizza and I’m not sure I’ll be able to go back to ordering Domino’s – well at least without longing for World Pizza.
World Pizza began in March 2017, after Jonathan Seager and Matt Martin came up with the idea a few months earlier over a few beers at Bread and Roses.

The couple, who have more than 25 years experience in the hospitality industry, were working together at Blues Bar and Grill at the time and wanted to offer something different. At the time, Matt told PlymouthLive: “With a new business, we wanted to hedge our bets. Pizza is the most popular takeaway, so we wanted to capitalize on that.”
In the six years they have been operating, they have appeared at festivals, events and streets all over Plymouth. World Pizza has two mini-trucks, Bella and Margot, and they show up at different locations each week.
I’ve now had World Pizza twice – and each time I order from Margot. Margot operates Tuesday to Saturday and is located in the Down Thomas, Plympton, Devonport, Yelverton and Ivybridge areas.
Bella operates from Tuesday to Sunday in the Staddiscombe, Peverell, Pennycross, Plymstock and Derriford areas. Bella attends events on Saturday. You can find Bella and Margot’s whereabouts on their website here.
I found it very easy to place my order. I called the number of the truck I wanted to pick up from, and was then asked to choose a time slot – I was offered one in just 10 minutes, which I thought was unbelievable.
When you get to the truck, there’s no waiting and you can pay and collect your hot pizza – and enjoy the wonderful aromas of freshly cooked pizza and garlic bread.
All pizzas are made beach style, with many local locations including Constantine, Mothcombe, Bantham and Bigbury.
On the two occasions I’ve ordered it, I’ve had the McKenna, which is Devon honey roast pork and pineapple (controversial, I know…) and the Bantham, which is Devon honey roast pork, mushrooms, grana padano, and olive oil.
Both pizzas were really crunchy and full of flavor and there was no dripping fat as is the case with grease-soaked Domino’s and Papa John’s boxes.
You can really tell that your pizza is being prepared with care – and the fresh toppings are evenly spread across the pizza. Another plus is there are no burnt crusts while watching the pizza in the oven – and only one or two members focus on their orders in the truck, rather than a whole team running around the kitchen.
All World Pizzas range from £9 to £13 depending on size, and there are also garlic bread options – which I highly recommend.
Hot honey garlic bread, which can be added for £1, is some of the most delicious things I’ve tasted – and it didn’t last long in our house. The honey blends beautifully with the garlic and creates an explosion of flavor.
