We went to Pizza East in Shoreditch for some freshly made pizza. It is one of my favourite pizza places in London. The atmosphere is buzzing, on one side there are large wood fire ovens where the chefs are cooking away, and on the other side there are breads, meats and cheeses being sliced. Its a large space and everything is made right in front of you.
We had some calamari to start. Freshly battered and fried so that it was crisp on the outside with some tartar sauce on the side.
I am a margherita pizza kind of girl. Some people might find it plain, but I think that it is the best way to enjoy a good pizza, without any toppings to distract from the taste of a good pizza base, home-made tomato sauce, and fresh buffalo mozzarella.
Pizza East have a good selection of pizzas with interesting toppings and if you are a topping kind of person, I would recommend trying the spicy sausage.
Great pizzas and great atmosphere!
