  • ASAP Pizza returns to Flor or a regular Sunday pop-up

    Before the main restaurant returned after the lockdown, Flor's head chef Pamela Yung tried something new, ASAP pizza, their own take on a pizzeria with a heavy focus on quality produce and heritage British wheats. It was, as you'd imagine, rather successful - so much so that it's coming back every Sunday. 

    It'll be the first time that Flor opens on a Sunday and the whole menu will be an

  • cinquecento pizza ppens in notting hill

    Cinquento pizzeria first opened its doors in Chelsea last Christmas and, during lockdown, expanded with a kitchen in Battersea. Now they're getting ready to open its second eat-in pizzeria, on Portobello Road.

    The key difference with the new place though will be that it's split into a dining room at the back and a grab and go place at the front. So you can just drop by for a slice of pizza or some aracinini to take away, or settle

  • Bel-Air brings wholesome LA-fare to Farringdon with their second branch

    The news is bleak. We know that. So, frankly, we're going to take the wins where we can find them and over the past week or so London has done rather well on that front. We may be an international laughing stock over our response to Covid, but at least when it comes to pizzas and cocktails we're world-beating.

    Pizzas first. The 50 Top Pizza Europe 2020 list came out just before the weekend and London

  • nebula pizza hackney road

    You may be wondering does Hackney really need another pizza place? Certainly, the team behind Nebula, which opened at the weekend, are very much hoping it does.

    This new pizza, beer and cocktail joint has taken over a space just off Hackney Road near to ABQ Bar and Mama Shelter. It's a large site - with room for 200 pizza lovers. And the fact that it also has a large courtyard won't hurt it at all in the current times.

    The team behind it are

  • Gordo's pizzeria arrives in Dalston

    Dalston has itself a new pizza parlour and it looks like this might be a bit special. Gordo's comes from Jesse Elias, who has previously been the senior GM at Yard Sale in Clapton before going it alone, so he should have a fair bit of pizza know-how under his belt.

    We caught up with him to find out a little bit more. "At Gordo's, we wanted to be a more traditional pizzeria on the menu but more vibey late-night space, so with the help of

    A Hot Dinners exclusive

    It's certainly starting to look as though 2020 is the summer of the deep pan pizza in London. First, we had Gizzi and Professor Green's popular pop-up at Old Street and now, down in Brixton, a new Detroit-style pizzeria has opened its doors.

    Party Store Pizza at Market House on Coldharbour Lane is all about the "Detroit style" pizza. That means it's baked in bespoke deep rectangular steel pans

  • donna sofia restaurant london highbury

    Over the many, boring weeks of lockdown, we spent a lot of time on our daily prescribed walk going past the old Dear Pizza spot on Highbury Barn, wondering what new restaurant was opening there.

    Now we know - it's Donna Sofia - an Italian restaurant and pizzeria from the folk next door at Da Mario deli. They're serving up a range of antipasti, pasta, mains and pizzas.

    On the menu you'll find:

  • gallio pizza south london

    A new pizza company about to hit London are claiming that their pizzas are devised specifically to relieve that bloated post-pizza feeling. Gallio are using only ancient grains to make their pizza bases. Apparently those olde grains are high in protein and antioxidants and more easily digestible than newer flours. 

    Just as interesting as the pizza dough itself is the pizzeria's decision to bring in Norma chef Ben Tish for some of the menu as a

    It's all based around one of the most popular dishes from the series - their take on the deep dish pizza. Pizzas, made from

  • london pizza festival at home

    Restaurants, bars and pubs are coming back - but what about the festivals? Looks like they're going to be mainly virtual for the foreseeable, which is forcing a lot of folk to be particularly inventive about how they do just that.

    The 2020 London Pizza Festival is one such bash. Run by Daniel Young of Young & Foodish, it's spent the last five years bringing in the crowds at Borough Market. Now that that's not possible the new event will be

  • Ace Pizza launches out of Hackney's Pembury Tavern

    Before lockdown, the Pembury Tavern in Hackney had built up quite the reputation for its pizzas. Now, they're back and post-lockdown are launching as their own delivery pizza brand, Ace Pizza. It'll still be based in the pub, but the menu has been given something of an overhaul while the team have been away. 

    All the pizzas will be from 48hr cold-fermented dough and the menu includes:
