Pizza Union, Spitalfields
The UK’s first Italian all-day Pizza Bar. Thin and crispy artisan pizzas, inspired by the thin and crispy pizzas found in Rome, baked in three minutes in a traditional stone pizza oven. Pizzas are ordered straight from the counter, while a host of long, bar-style communal tables help create a buzzy, informal dining atmosphere to fit with the Pizza Bar’s contemporary industrial look.
I have a problem. I can’t stop eating pizza. I ate a total of six pizzas last week – SIX!!!
Why is that a problem, I hear you say. Well it’s not the fact that I’m not getting the nutrients I need from fruit and veg and my waistline is expanding at a rate of knots just in time for my holiday in Ibiza, it is that I just can’t seem to stop.
I’m always up for finding new pizza establishments and quite frequently travel around the capital to find the best. I tried Pizza Union a couple of months ago and although this is a very belated post, I’m pleased to say that it stuck in my mind for a couple of reasons. I wouldn’t put it up there are one of the best in London, but I would recommend it as a very cheap and cheerful post work pit stop.
The range of quality toppings is impressive, with favourites such as fior di late mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes and hand-stretched dough. I opted the the Calabria, which had a healthy smothering of tomato sauce, mozzarella, mascarpone and the ever popular N’duja spicy sausage and topped with rocket. And as there is no table service (simply order at the counter, take a buzzer and collect when ready), prices are incredibly low. My Calabria was a complete steal at £5.95!
Pizzas range from £3.95 – £6.50. Italian beer from £2.80 a bottle, Prosecco £15 and wines from £3 a glass or £11.50 a bottle
