Pizza is the wheel that makes the world go round. Pizza is to be shared, to be eaten alone, to be brought to celebrate, commiserate and comfort. Even bad pizza is good pizza! We love pizza in Bristol with plenty of stone baked, sourdough, flame licked and cheap and cheerful jostling for attention. We have picked some of our favourites to tempt you into ordering a slice or two.
Flour and Ash
Flour & Ash take their pizza very seriously. They have a simple ethos, keeping things fresh, exciting and local, a must when your restaurant is on the fiercely independent Gloucester Road (just!). Their sourdough pizzas are handmade and stretch in their small kitchen then cooked via woodfire in the oven. Toppings are exciting, with options such as ewes curd, wild garlic pesto, ox cheek ragu and truffle making regular appearances. If the pizza hasn’t quite left you feeling full, their homemade ice creams and sorbets, in a range of seasonal flavours are there to tempt you. We like to try a scoop of an old favourite and second of something a bit more exotic.
Pizza Workshop keep things nice and simple with their pizzas named in numerical order instead of asking you to get your mouth around anything complicated. There are ten options to choose from from vegan, veggie and meat loving and the option of adding even more toppings if it takes your fancy. Pick from either their North Street or Whiteladies Road pizzerias and keep an eye out for their actual workshops, teaching you all you need to do to make incredible za at home. Gluten free? Pizza Workshop guarantee 100% their GF options are safe, great news for celiacs everywhere!
Bosco is an Italian lovers dream, with owners spending much of their time in that part of the world picking up recipes and techniques from the parents of pizza themselves. They split their offerings into tomato and non tomato bases and use only the best Italian ingredients on their Neapolitan style bases for an authentic taste and experience. If you don’t fancy pizza (stay with us) Bosco offers a plethora of other dishes to suit any dishes including a rather good Venetian fish stew, fresh pasta and some of the most established meat and cheese boards this side of Rome.
The Old Market Assembly
Those authentic, Nepopolitan vibes are all well and good but sometimes one wants a slice of proper Bristol with their dinner. Step up the colloquially named OMA for some fresh pizza that’s Bristol to the crust. Everything is sourced as close to Bristol as possible with goats cheese from Salisbury and Chorizo from Dorset. Vegans and GF types are also catered for wonderfully here, just ask for a swap to vegan cheese or a GF bases, no extra charge!
