Pizza Union is becoming a bit of a London institution. I’ve heard loads of people talk about it, I’ve heard rave reviews of pizza goodness and seen a far few pizzas consumed on my way out of the Studio in Aldgate.
So when Adam and I finished work on Thursday and headed to Kings Cross to hop on the train to Newcastle we thought we’d pop into Pizza Union, Kings Cross
for a bite before the ride.
It’s a bit like the set up at Nandos, you pay for what you fancy then take a seat. There’s no service, so it’s fuss free. It was pretty busy with people meeting friends and catching up and those, like us scoffing down a pizza before a train journey. Suitcases, luggage bags and packages in-toe. We were those people with lots of luggage, struggling to navigate the space available, haha.
We chose veggie options (obviously
) with Adam opting for a florentina with egg and I chose a veggie mixture that I fail to remember the name of (We’ll have to go back again to find out!
) We ordered, took a seat and went to claim our pizza, Argos style when our table buzzer was buzzing. It was pretty quick considering how busy it was, only about 10 minutes or so.
The pizzas arrived and we’d worried we hadn’t ordered enough, Pizza Union don’t do chips, much to Adam’s distress but despite each pizza being super super thin, they were very filling, we didn’t need a side salad and whilst Adam protests that we needed chips, we really didn’t. The pizza was the perfect portion.
Whilst mine was a little overdone around the sides, the garlic mayo soon sorted that out! Adam’s was super tasty with the egg cooked to perfection in the middle. Mine was quite spicy after I doused it in chilli oil - when will I learn!?
They were both quite cheesy and full of flavour, they did not skimp on the flavour. We devoured them in about 15 minutes, the perfect pre train treat.
We’re big into pizza and evidently seem to be working our way around the pizza outlets of whichever London borough we find ourselves in! We’d both highly recommend Pizza Union, but now it’s going to be harder to say no to when it’s ordered into the office!
