There are many things to love about new Shoreditch eaterie, PizzaBuzz. Firstly, and unsurprisingly, it sells pizza, and who doesn’t love pizza?
Not just any old pizza though. PizzaBuzz carries some spectacularly good ingredients that you just won’t find in other pizza joints – smoked mackerel, pine nuts, beetroot, feta cheese, roasted garlic cloves, fennel seeds, n’duja, merguez…the list goes on. You can pick and mix from all of these ingredients and more, in order to realise the “best pizza ever” vision you’ve always carried around in your head.
The owner, Barnaby, is incredibly well-intentioned and untainted by cynicism. He is an evangelist about many topics dear to the GLC’s collective heart: great ingredients, provenance, culinary innovation, the importance of local etc. Barnaby wants people to come and have a happy, healthy, tasty experience here. He wants PizzaBuzz to be inclusive, in terms of taste, dietary requirements and wallet. Their pizza base is made from an organic flour and spelt blend for easier digestion and the restaurant caters handsomely for customers looking to avoid calories, gluten, dairy or anything animal. Entirely at the other end of the spectrum, PizzaBuzz also offers a “Bottomless Booze” option, where diners can have a pizza and as much tap wine or beer as their liver can process for just under £30.
