A pizza firm has decided to give back to the community after seeing success since expanding into a new location earlier this year.

On the Hill Pizza opened in Diss in 2021 and launched a new location in Bury St Edmunds in September this year.

Owner Adam Lees has now launched a scheme to give out free pizzas from his Diss location which he hopes to do once a week as it opens its doors to anyone who "could use a meal or a chat".

"The cost of living has created difficulties for many households and businesses so we would like to make a small gesture to help anyone who needs it," he said.

"The town has been so supportive of us over the last two and a half years and it's been difficult for businesses everywhere."

The restaurant serves handmade pizza made with 24-hour fermented dough, perfected by Mr Lees as he found his love for cooking in lockdown - making a change from his previous job in IT. 

He added: "I think one of the reasons we've been doing well despite the cost of living crisis is our commitment to using fresh ingredients, keeping things authentic and also being a friendly face for diners."

The dates for the free pizza giveaways are yet to be announced but people are urged to keep an eye on the company's social media.
