London, Food: Pizza Club at Pizza Buzz

I've been so lucky to meet so many amazing people through blogging. Through enjoying what is after all a hobby, I've been able to meet dozens and dozens of talented folk, funny folk, inspiring folk, clever folk. The things I get to do and the people I get to spend time with through my writing are truly an amazing bonus to the whole blog thang!

This year blogging threw another fun element into my lap, as this year saw the advent of Pizza Club. One day Vicky, Connie and Emma were chatting all things pizza on twitter, I joined in, and in a matter of moments, Pizza Club was born. We've met up three times now at different pizza spots in town (and the club may well be expanding before long - and not just in a waistlines-post-pizza way) and I love our candid, laughter filled get-togethers over a yummy meal!

Last week we were kindly invited to try out the menu at Pizza Buzz, the new pizza spot in Shoreditch. With great, fresh ingredients, an interesting and innovative menu, and a build-your-own twist to proceedings, I was excited to get involved and enjoy some pizza!

Love the in-house specials - some really interesting combos. Some of my potato loving friends (and my husband) would enjoy the Irish Mist - carbs on carbs!

After having a wee think about what you might like you join the line and make your way along, adding and subtracting elements as you go along. I loved seeing my pizza being made right in front of me, it was a great way to think about flavours, textures and colours throughout the prep.

The chefs were super helpful and friendly and navigating the dozens of ingredients expertly - no mean feat as Pizza Club being Pizza Club we had plenty to say for ourselves!

In addition to the many pizzas available there were also a range of salads, and plenty of drinks to choose from, with all sorts of fizzy drinks, freshly squeezed juices, beers from local breweries and red wine, white wine and prosecco. As well as that filtered water is literally on tap (always good when I'm around as I drink water like it's going out of fashion).

My pizza ahead of the bake. I chose the Italian as a base recipe, then added some extra veggies and meats. Vicky and Connie both went for the Irish Mist (those potatoes, man!) with various additions; Emma selected the White Forest with some extras.

Ready for the oven!

As you can see, all of the pizzas turned out beautifully, and I can assure you that they all tasted just as good. As ever with Pizza Club there was a lot of slice swapping and trying each others pizzas, as well as tucking in to a little creamy burrata on the side. Because there's always tine for burrata.

Our table looked even more festive after the addition of some prosecco.

Glasses in hand and pizza on the table it was high time to have a chat and catch up over some cheesey goodness. All the pizzas were good, I especially liked my own (#biased) - the saltiness of the cured meats played well alongside the richness of the buffalo mozzarella and the freshness of the vegetables. I loved this pizza, and the portions were so generous I was able to save a trio of slices to take home for lunch the next day!

The other reason I saved a little pizza was to ensure I have some space left for pudding. Pizza Buzz has a whole range of ice creams on offer, some made with cow's milk, others with goat's milk, and several with almond milk. I had a cone of the goat's milk versions of the mint choc chip and the chocolate - both were creamy, sweet and satisfying.


I love catching bloggers at work - here's Vicky getting that perfect ice cream shot.

Thank you so much to Pizza Buzz for hosting Pizza Buzz so well - the food was lovely and the whole space has a chilled, buzzy vibe about it. As I looked around everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, and the location of the restaurant - a stone's throw from both Shoreditch and Liverpool Street - makes it a great spot for getting together with friends, whether it's after work or before a big night out.
