About Radio Alice Canary Wharf
This Canary Wharf site is the third link in the chain for this low-key pizzeria and is the biggest one yet, serving almost 200 diners the signature pizzas that Radio Alice is known for.
Radio Alice in Canary Wharf is bringing the neighbourhood-style pizzeria to the financial capital of London while taking care to find the nuances that the area boasts and incorporating it in the décor and theme. Whether it’s involving local artists or charities, the new store gladly takes on the persona of the Canary Wharf area to help make guests feel like locals and leave locals feeling at home.
Started in Bologna, Italy in 2010 by brothers Salvatore and Matteo Aloe, Radio Alice served up sourdough pizzas that were prepared with stoneground flour which was fermented for 24 hours, and then topped them with fresh Italian ingredients. After crossing the pond and opening in London in 2016, the pizzeria still continues to follow that same recipe at its new Canary Wharf store.
Just like the other sites in Hoxton and Clapham, this Radio Alice differs from most pizza places in London – here the sourdough bases are cooked first and cut into slices to share, and then the seasonal toppings are added, with the idea being that the flavour of some toppings can be compromised by heat.
The menu celebrates Italian produce which the restaurant sources sustainably from small-scale suppliers and farmers from across Italy. Start out with a gooey helping of burrata, then mix and match cheese-based and tomato-based pizzas. Toppings include prosciutto di parma soaked in an orange-infused oil, and spicy pork sausage with tomato and black pepper, or the salty anchovy, caper and red onion pizza which is finished with a zest of lemon. Find expert gelato, homemade tiramisu and cannoli, all at reasonable prices and with a focus on the organic.
