ONE THING YOU REALLY SHOULD KNOW

CLEVER WALLY'S RAW PIZZA 85 Chiswick High Road, W4 (020 8994 8080, www.www.cleverwallys.com) Gloopy cheese, a mushy base and cold pepperoni. And that's before your takeaway pizza has travelled halfway across the city on the back of a moped. Now Clever Wally's has the antidote with its raw pizza menu.

Each one is made by hand upon order using ingredients sourced from independent British suppliers wherever possible. Not only will your Margherita ([pounds sterling]7.50 for a 12-inch), crispy bacon and spinach ([pounds sterling]8.90) or English sausage with red onion chutney (([pounds sterling]9.70) be the freshest it can possibly be, but you can cook it to your own taste as well. Free delivery across most of south and west London.
