EATING OUT

PizzaBuzz

2B Worship Street, London, EC2A 2AH Telephone: 020 3815 6696 There is always a buzz in our household if you mention going out for Pizza, but even more so now we have reviewed PizzaBuzz, a new pizza restaurant situated about 5 minutes from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Moorgate stations. Located in Worship Street, this modern restaurant offers a dine-in or take-out experience, and allows diners to create their own pizza from scratch, or you can pick one from the Signature Selection, including the Honor pizza, which is named after the owners daughter. On entering PizzaBuzz, we were greeted by a very long counter, with a huge variety of ingredients from which we chose our toppings, and several staff who were willing to help us create our pizza of choice. The first member of staff on the day we went was Italian, and he kneaded our dough (made from flour and

spelt) and then spun it and threw it in the air as all good pizza makers do, before passing it along to his colleague who then put the sauce of our choice, oil, and the cheese of our choice on the base. The choices of pizza base include Rossa (crushed tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and oregano), Margherita (crushed tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan), Verde (pine nut basil pesto, mozzarella and parmesan) and Bianca (mozzarella, parmesan, rosemary leaves and white sauce), all costing from £4.25-£5.95. The pizza was then passed along to their next colleague for what they call Step 2, where we add our proteins at £1.50 a portion, and these include pancetta, chicken, nduja, tuna, spicy sausage and pepperoni, before Step 3 which is the choice of extra cheese at £1.95 a portion, and then culminating with Steps 4 and 5, where we added vegetables (£1 each), and then finally the herbs we wished to garnish our pizza with (50p each). Our pizza then moved along the line, and whilst we ordered our drinks, (you can also order salads at this point), the pizza

was taken away to be placed in the huge pizza ovens, and within 2 minutes was served to us and was absolutely perfect, and I have to say, completely delicious - not a crumb was left by the time we had finished! We chose to dine in when we visited, and along with our pizzas tried the Burratas (large, creamy mozzarella balls), served with a choice of rocket and lemon, beetroot and mint, Parma ham and chilli flakes or tomato and basil. We had never tried one of these before, but will definitely be ordering them again. To drink we chose Gladiator Spelt Beer, which I was reliably told our readers would have heard of, and to finish our meal we chose the chocolate ice cream (made from goat’s milk) and the rose ice cream (made from cow’s milk). These are only £1.95 and are great value for money. PizzaBuzz is a pizza experience like no other, and one we will definitely return for, and will be enjoyed by friends, families, and colleagues alike, and I am sure we will soon be seeing more of them popping up around the country - hopefully in Sutton!
