Custom-create your own pizza pie at newbie pizzeria, PizzaBuzz, on Worship Street (about halfway between Old Street and Moorgate Stations). While you’re there, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, have a beer, some burrata and maybe some homemade ice cream too.
Whether you rely on PizzaBuzz’s own pre-designed menu of “Worship Street Loves” ideas for your pizza or go with your own assemblage, odds are you’ll be pleased with the results. I was happy with my meal and would have no qualms heading back again. I found service to be speedy, and the setting to be good for a short lunch break or a laidback casual dinner. Prices were kind to the budget conscious and – most importantly – the pizza was delish.
The PizzaBuzz Margherita (crushed tomato, fresh mozzarella and Parmesan) costs a reasonable £4.95. From there you can stack it with a vast variety of toppings starting at £1 each for veggies and up to £2.50 each for premium proteins and cheeses. Other bases include the no-cheese Rossa (crushed tomato, garlic, oregano, olive oil, £4.25); the no-sauce Focaccia (fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, oregano, olive oil, £5.50); the Verde (pine nut basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, £5.95); and the Bianca (white sauce, fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, rosemary, £5.95).
During my dine, I went with a Margherita as my base topped with an assortment of meats – half fennel salami/half pepperoni with especially delicious veal meatballs. That would certainly have been ample for a meal but the chance to sample a bowl of burrata with Parma ham and chilli flakes (£5.50) proved too much of a temptation. I was not disappointed. Nor was I let down by a small serving of almond milk ice cream (£1.95). I like my bottle of crisp and light Gladiator Spelt Beer (£3.50), and would be inclined to order it again.
