The fastest pizza in the east

Who doesn’t love pizza. It’s a superfood as far as Mrs Bite is concerned.  Delicious fast food that can be healthy too if you give the base and toppings the tlc they deserve. 

Sourdough bases and toppings such as beetroot and potato (at East Pizzas) prove this is possible and establishments such as Oregano, 1926, East Pizzas and now @pizza have been rewriting the pizza rules. @pizza is the latest to champion fresh ingredients (many locally sourced) whilst its USP is cooking them to perfection in just 90 seconds. 

The whole set up at @pizza in Charlotte Lane is impressive. Sleek monochrome décor, oblong pizzas, branded boxes and gleaming surfaces combine fast food efficiency with a side of hipster. 
Counter culture meets counter couture as pizzas can be designed individually.

Choose from ancient grain (spelt) or sourdough bases, then add sauces, cheese, veggies, proteins and finishes to create unique  ‘design your own pizzas’. Apparently there are over 56,000 pizza combinations – feel free to do the maths. 

For the indecisive @pizza’s suggestions include:  
‘HEARTBREAKER’ - Roquito Pepper, Scottish Mozzarella, Pepperoni, Spicy Italian Sausage, Fresh Jalapeño, Grilled Red Onion, Rosemary & Sriracha Sauce; 
‘EAT MEAT REPEAT’ - Classic Tomato, Mozzarella/Cheddar, Pepperoni, Spicy Italian Sausage, Wiltshire Ham, Spicy Beef Meatballs, Gran Moravia Cheese & Oregano, 
MEAN GREENS - Pesto con Basilico Genovese, Mixed Leaves, Baby Spinach, Rocket, Fresh Basil, Tinkerbell Tomatoes, Grilled Red Onion, Roast Peppers, Mozzarella Pearls & Caesar Drizzle 

Mrs Bite is ultra indecisive and has had the Mean Greens twice to date. A shout out from Mr Bite for The Heartbreaker too which is volcanic. We both like this new west end hotspot. 

A selection of craft sodas including Ginger, Lime & Mint and Apple & Bramble as well as a choice of local beers and Italian wines and friendly service is all you need to seal the deal.
