Faye opted for a veggie heavy slice with a tomato base, mushrooms, spinach, mixed peppers, a double helping of grated cheese, drizzled in pesto and fiery oil and finished with salt and pepper seasoning.

Jazmine’s mighty meat mix up was lined with a BBQ base, a boat load of pepperoni, a grated four cheese mix and mixed peppers with a garlic oil drizzled over the top for good measure. 

Faye and Jazmine joined forces to help promote Fireaway Pizza Bury’s latest initiative, showing the public that fast food doesn’t have to mean unhealthy food.

Faye said: “Fireaway Pizza is a cut above the rest! I had so much fun creating my own pizza from scratch - it was an amazing experience and I’m extremely passionate about keeping fit and healthy and making sure I eat the right foods, so it’s nice to know there’s a takeaway option out there that doesn’t have to be naughty food!

"Also, the pizza chefs on site chose my pizza as the winner - I might be biased but it was delicious and even Joe thought so too as I took some home for him.”

Jazmine added: “What an experience. My pizza looked like a child had made it compared to Faye’s, but it was so much fun and a lot tastier than it looked! How can you not indulge in a pizza from Fireaway knowing it’s not full off all the usual rubbish takeaway food is notorious for! I guess Corrie wins this battle!”
