Pizza Union – artisan pizzas Spitalfields

I’ve walked by Pizza Union several times now at lunch time and had to seriously resist from being swept off my feet and sucked inside.

The huge glass walls enable passers by to look in and see freshly made, thin, stone-baked pizzas being eaten by customers filling their bellies at long, shared wooden benches in a somewhat industrial or factory-looking large room.

And it’s invariably packed during the peak lunch hours through the week.

The other day I could resist no more. And found myself having a late lunch (tables were mostly empty after 2pm), enjoying a thin, crispy 12″ Napoli pizza (tomato base, mozzarella cheese, anchovies, capers and black olives) with extra chilli @ £6.50. Bargain.

Everything about this place is easy and comfortable: you queue and order (and pay for) your food at the counter where you’re given a device which buzzes when your pizza’s ready.

All you have to do is find a seat, wait for the buzz, receive your Pizza Union ‘artisan pizza’ and enjoy. Simplicity. One of life’s little (but very fine) pleasures.
