but where was Wigan's first pizza take-away - and when did it open

Roberto's in Rowbottom Square, was the first, it was an Italian Restaurant, but you could order a take away from there, either to be picked up by yourself or delivered by taxi, that was in the early 1980's the first true pizza take away, was located in Hallgate, but am buggered if I can remember the name of it, that opened in 1986 and the cheese tasted like rubber

Was it called Beita's Pizza or something like that.

I think it was called something like that and I used to watch them making the pizza's which was a base, with the thinnest of filling spread on to the consistency of jam and then the cheese was in the form of these horribel white pellets they poured over the top and they were yuk ....

Yuk, yuk and yuk ....

In terms yukiness, they were the yukest of the yuk ...

They did not taste very nice either

Pizzaland eat in/take away on King street must have been quite early.

I have a vague recollection of mountains on wallpaper and excellent pizzas.
