SquareMeal Review of
Pizza Union Spitalfields
Offering super-quick pizzas at prices lower than most City side dishes, this casual and lively canteen-style diner is consistently busy, despite its backstreet location. The open-plan, high-ceiling space takes a no-frills, stripped-back approach to decor, with long wooden communal benches throughout. The draw here is simplicity and great taste: order and pay at the counter, collect a buzzer and sip a beer while you wait. Roman-style, thin and crispy 12 inch pizzas start at £3.95 for a margherita, with the most expensive a mere £6.50. Our Calabria had creamy mozzarella and mascarpone paired with peppy n’duja sausage, the pizza striking a good balance between crisp and gooey. Gluten-free dough is offered for an extra £1, while desserts include dough rings stuffed with Nutella. Frequented by young professionals and students, this has become a local favourite for a fun post-work fill-up.
