Are pizzas really the perfect way to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

How will you be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Are you organising a street party Heading to Hyde Park to see Paul McCartney strum his guitar

Or will you be staying at home and tucking into that most English of meals — the British Breakfast Pizza

But M&S is not the only company trying to re-invent the humble pizza. At Jamie Oliver’s new pizzeria, Union Jacks, you can eat fish-pie pizza, with smoked pollock, cockles and potatoes, while The Gloucester Old Spot pizza includes crackling, quince puree, raw apple, stinky Stilton and watercress.

You probably won’t be tempted by Iceland’s offering — a doner kebab pizza. Yours for just 1.
