‘How do you solve a problem like pizzeria?’ – or more aptly, the lack thereof in Holloway? By opening one, of course, and serving charcoal-dough bases so delicious the hungry hordes flock there. Zia Lucia is a respectable little outfit, with a rustic-inspired interior, an authentic wood-fired oven and even a little counter for a Spritzer and a dollop of burrata. But the star draw, aside from the warm service, is the pizzas themselves. Try the Arianna (mozzarella, fresh sausage, Taleggio, pecorino and truffle honey) for something different, and match your topping to your lifestyle: health-conscious diners are catered for with both wholemeal and gluten-free bases. The charcoal variety has a subtle hint of smoke, without any bitterness. Drinks are cheap (£5.50 for a Spritzer) and generously portioned, as are starters and salads (the roasted butternut squash with sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes and capers is best). A new neighbourhood gem is born.
You may have read my post on City Dash, a large-scale urban wide game that tickled my housemates and I so much we did it four times in as many months. It involves running around bits of the city solving cryptic clues and evading guards in high-vis, sort of like a slightly more grown-up version of 40-40 Homes. It’s tremendous fun, but if you’re conscious about running in public, or just prefer the clue-solving element, they’ve brought out a new game.

It’s no secret that I love pizza. So when I hear about a new pizza restaurant with rave reviews and beautiful looking food I’m going to have to go! Zia Lucia on Holloway Road is a family run restaurant and, after working our way through as much pizza as possible we could easily see why there are queues out the door, even on a Tuesday night!After talking all about my fondness for pizza recently, a couple of other lovely bloggers confessed their love for this beautiful food too and the Pizza Club was born!
