Customers can create their own artisan-style pizza and salads or they can chose from the menu of MOD classics.

Pizzas are then hand-fired in a 300®c oven in minutes. The price always remains the same - £7.47 -regardless of the number of toppings.

The pizza chain, which will also be offering £10 pitchers of Estrella beer, is the latest to open in the Qube, a £17million development at the shopping centre which has also welcomed a Five Guys, Thaikhun, Barburrito and more.

To mark the opening of the new Metrocentre location, MOD has partnered with charity Children North East who will receive 100% of proceeds from pizza sales from the opening day.

John Nelson, CEO of MOD UK said: “We are thrilled to bring MOD to Gateshead and to introduce the community to our incredible pizza and the special people-first culture.

“MOD is a company focused on taking care of its people and community. We hope people will come down to see what all the buzz is about.” 
The Gateshead MOD Pizza will open at noon tomorrow. The first 50 people through the door will receive a free pizza and will be entered into a prize draw to win pizza for a year.
