Aldi is launching its own pizza delivery service in three cities including Edinburgh.
It comes as Aldi releases its brand new “Ultimate Takeaway” range which aims to offer a budget friendly alternative to Domino’s.
The Pizza Retailer of the Year winners confirmed the service will start on Tuesday, October 3.
The menu will include three “Domino’s inspired” flavours: The Meaty One (inspired by Meateor), The Banger (inspired by Absolute Banger), and The Texas Style BBQ Chicken & Bacon (inspired by Texas BBQ).
Each 11.5 inch pizza will have eight slices and cost £3.99 compared to Domino’s which can set shoppers back £21.99 for a medium (11.5 inch) Meateor pizza as well as an additional £2.50 delivery fee.
The service will launch across the UK in popular student cities – Edinburgh, Manchester and Cardiff.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “With prices of takeaways soaring, we’re excited to be able to offer shoppers delicious pizzas at a fraction of the price of expensive high-street chains.
“The quality ingredients and affordable price of the Ultimate Takeaway range will no doubt change people’s idea of the supermarket pizza.
“Better yet, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver this product hot to shoppers’ doors and truly treat our customers to the full takeaway experience.”
Pizza fans in selected postcodes will be able to pre book their delivery slots from Monday, September 18.
