Shoreditch Gem - Pizza East

As you can tell from my blog I eat too much and eat out way too much, I am also partial to a little comfort food, which is where Pizza East in Shoreditch comes in.

This restaurant is huge, very cool and industrial and full of the trendy East London crowd. Bearing in mind I work a short 15 mins walk away it has become quite an obvious post work dinner of choice for girly meet up's.

Firstly, the pizza's are great! They are big enough to really fill you up or to share with a friend providing you order a side salad.

My absolute favs are the buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil, as well as the San Deniele, burrata and rocket. The veal meatballs, prosciutto and cream is also very good and rich and another stand out is the spicy sausage, mozzarella and tenderstem brocolli. Be warned though, the spicy sausage is very spicy so it depends on whether you like spice as to whether you will enjoy this option.

Make sure you also order a side of butter lettuce, avocado and vinaigrette, this salad has hit the nail on the head for accompanying the pizza.

Desserts here are the best, try and order a few to share between friends. The salted chocolate caramel tart is a must try as are the cinnamon doughnuts, which you can dip in molten chocolate but the Gelato is also pretty delicious! Make sure you get really stuck in!

Try and book ahead as even on early week nights the restaurant can still be fully booked.
