The World-famous tequila firm has joined forces with Northern Ireland vendors Streetza to freshly make and deliver the Margarita Margherita pizza to homes across Belfast.

The Margarita Margherita pizza is a unique crossover meal that combines the ingredients of a Margherita pizza with those of a Margarita cocktail.

Streetza is a mobile wood fired pizza business operating out of a converted truck.

Before opening for business, the founders travelled to Italy to attend pizza school and were trained to become professional “pizzaiolos” and now offer an authentic Neapolitan pizza experience all across Northern Ireland.

Using the finest ingredients and sourcing locally whenever possible they make their own dough before stretching every pizza by hand and topping with San Marzano DOP Tomato sauce.

Stephen Mackin, Co founder of Streetza said they were delighted to have been selected to be the only local pizza vendor for Jose Cuervo’s Margarita Margherita.

He continued: “We are very excited about this opportunity to work with Jose Cuervo in celebration of National Margarita Day. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us as a local business and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”

What’s more, every purchase of the £8 pizza will come with a complimentary special edition pizza-inspired Margarita cocktail that combines the traditional sweet and savoury flavours of a traditional Margarita with toppings found in a traditional Margherita pizza. It contains fresh lemon juice, basil, fresh tomatoes and tequila. Finished off with a garnish of cherry tomatoes and a mozzarella ball on a skewer with basil leaves.

The world’s first Margarita Margherita pizza includes tomato sauce marinated in triple sec, salt, garlic and tequila. It is topped-off with finely grated Parmesan, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, sea salt and lime wedges – for a never before experienced taste sensation!
