Check out this east London pizzeria, on a working Victorian street market, surrounded by locals, traders, and pizza enthusiasts. Based within the thriving Broadway market, which still retains its original charm, this restaurant is a hub for hipsters and creatives. Eat your Neapolitan-style sourdough pizza among the cool cafes and shops, where you can do a spot of window shopping, if you’re sitting outside. If you fancy another view, grab your pizza to go and head to Regent’s Canal or London Fields. It’s super easy to get to as well; the closest tube stop is London Fields, which is just around the corner.
The interior is sleek and modern, with a casual, rustic vibe from the wooden accents and white tiled walls. The pizzeria has a familiar atmosphere that is immediately relaxing and warm, especially once you catch a whiff of the ovens baking up delicious pizzas. Each pizza takes only 40 seconds to cook in the 500 degree ovens imported from Naples.
The sourdough is made fresh every single day to allow a minimum 20 hour prove to produce that classic tangy, chewy, yet crunchy texture. Choose from seven pizza topping combinations or check out the board for daily specials and extra topping options. The ingredients are well-sourced from Italy and Britain, ensuring that you get the best of both worlds. Wines are imported, beers are local, and the pizzas go well with either. Share a starter plate or get a salad made with great ingredients.
There is a private area for meetings or parties. You can also make regular bookings for large groups of six or more people. There are baby changing facilities available onsite making it a kid-friendly spot. Children can order from the picirillo menu, which features smaller versions of the regular pizzas, so they don’t miss out.
