London: Pizza Buzz - restaurant review

Pizza Buzz opened it's first restaurant in Worship Street a few minutes walk from Moorgate Underground station in London.
The idea of a pizza restaurant where you can sit in or take away is not new but the concept of building your own as you go down the line to the cash register is.  Pizza Buzz is really busy lunchtimes with people working locally popping in to sit and eat even phoning in their orders in advance to save some of the precious lunch time.
When I was asked to review Pizza Buzz I thought how great it would be to bring the Little People so they could build their own pizzas and therefore have no excuse not to eat them.

After a long and crowded day out in London recently we finished our trip into London at Pizza Buzz. Although they have their own special suggestions you can make your pizza absolutely individual, each part of the procedure is charged separately as well.

First you choose your base (made with a flour created specially for them which contains spelt flour as well and is easier on the digestion), with our without a tomato sauce, then move onto your favourite toppings. Littlest grandson aka 'Me Too' wanted salami and mushroom with some cheese but when he saw there were peas he squealed and added some to the top.
The child's pizza is a 6".  Older brother, aka 'Boo' didn't want cheese and only put tomato sauce and pepperoni on his!

I picked the base with tomato sauce and topped with cheese, ham, mushroom, artichokes and olives.  It was just perfect.
My daughter wanted the base with pesto and topped with sausage meatballs, tomatoes, mushrooms, panchetta and cheese.  Different but equally delicious.
There is a salad section where you can build your own salad the way you like including Buratta - the creamy mozzarella balls which I had served with beetroot chunks.
Lots of drinks to choose from including a drinks machine (free top ups) with loads of combinations.

Pudding is Mamoo Ice Cream, made just for Pizza Buzz with either cow's milk, goat's milk or almond milk and in a number of flavours.
Open evenings and weekends too - if you fancy a really traditional Italian style pizza cooked in a clay oven but exactly the toppings you like then pop in to Pizza Buzz.

I was a guest of Pizza Buzz. I was not required to write a positive review and all photos and opinions are my own.


  1. That looks great - there is nothing like proper pizza cooked in a proper oven is there? Wish it had been there when I worked in the area.

    1. Well, it's a short walk from Old Street or Moorgate Stations if you are out and about!

  2. We have something similar from the US called Pizza project. It's fab. Noting this for my next trip down.

    1. Worth trying if you are down our way Jac, you can personalise for vegetarians!

  3. I love places where you can create your own pizzas. These look delicious too.

    1. The wood fired oven really makes a taste difference. These were really nice!

  4. This looks like a lovely place I like the idea of creating your own pizza.

    1. It is fun and you can put anything you like on your pizza!
