Whenever anyone suggests a catch up dinner at a pizza joint, my heart always sinks a little bit. So many places still haven’t nailed the gluten free crust, and in the past I’ve always been left a little disappointed. That is, until I went to Pizzabuzz.
Pizzabuzz is really conveniently located, just off of Finsbury Square. We went along to do a review for an evening meal, but you can tell that it would be heaving at lunchtimes – especially as they take very little time to bake!
Pizzabuzz is self-service, meaning that you have the freedom to choose whatever toppings you want – and see them make it right in front of you. You can get the pies to take away, or you have the option of eating in – I’d recommend the latter, as they have a nice selection of wines and prosecco on tap.
If you’re a bit indecisive when it comes to toppings, the team are great at giving recommendations. A gluten free base is also available for £2 extra.
The gluten free base is a fraction smaller than the regular one, but in every other way was a fantastic base, unlike many gluten free pizzas I’ve had before. I opted for the rosso base with artichokes and olives, while my date opted for the bianca (white sauce and mozzarella) with green peppers. I found myself unable to resist the burrata, so I also got a side of that with basil leaves and tomatoes. You can’t have too much cheese, right?
The pizzas were really fantastic, but I was absolutely blown away by the dessert, which is fairly unusual as I’m definitely prefer savoury to sweet! Pizzabuzz have another counter dedicated to ice creams, which are divine. My date went for an almond milk-based cherry flavoured ice cream, which tasted just like a bakewell tart – and was dairy free.
My one was a bit more unusual – a rose-flavoured ice cream, which tasted just like Turkish Delight – I would go back to Pizzabuzz for the ice cream alone it was just that good.
Pizzabuzz really exceeded my expectations, and would be really great to take a large group to – especially as they cater so well for food intolerances, without having to compromise on quality or flavour.
