Baz & Fred

Restaurants, Pizza The Borough
5 out of 5 stars
(26user reviews)

The first permanent pizza kitchen from this young chef duo. The USP? Each pizza is cooked in a single 'Chadwick Oven' designed by Dan Chadwick, who handily happens to be Baz's godfather. It's capable of reaching 500°C.

The dough is made fresh and proven for between 48 and 62 hours. Most of the ingredients are sourced from Italy, including the san marzano tomatoes used in their tomato sauce, but if they can't find them there they'll buy as locally as possible.

Pizzas on offer range from a simple tomato and mozzarella, furnished with parmesan and basil to goat's cheese and caramelised onion, chorizo and 'nduja, Neapolitan salami with house pesto and parma ham, and portobello mushrooms with mozzarella, parsley oil, rocket and basil.

Another pizza joint in London? Yawn. Not using sparkling water from Italy? Piss off. Not even wood fired? Get out of here mate!


Actually, this pizza is bloody great. Those funny ovens they use genuinely make some great pizza, crispy on edges but not overcooking it all the way through. Toppings are good and generous amounts of whatever you order so every mouthful is as it should be. I even ate all the crusts, and I normally leave them.


ONLY niggling point is that for £9 or so for a street food pizza, it's almost unforgivably pricey given how cheap others are (Franco Manca/Pizza Pilgrims).


But, it is DAMNED good.


Get some. Try it. Enjoy!

I experienced my first Baz and Fred pizza a month or so ago on a trip down to visit the folk at Flat Iron Square. What a yummy pizza it was, too! I had the goats cheese red onion combo (I forget the name) and had it to take away. 


On the tube home everyone was annoyed/jealous/envious at the amazing smell of my pizza box. When I got it home I wolfed it down and my current Italian housemate said "Where did you get that from?! It looks SO good," which I consider a vast compliment for a humble British pizza. 


Can't wait to grab another B&F although I would try and eat it there rather than take away (which they did suggest to me at the time in all fairness) because it would be best eaten hot. 


Had Baz and Fred as a catering for our Christmas party at the OMEARA as well my work is around the corner so once a month is a must for me to have their delicious pizza. I love the Flat Iron square with all their different food stands, and this is defiantly one of my favourites in there. The pizza dough is just perfect form the consistency and taste. As well their different types they having is special but as well simple. My all time favourite is their Goat Cheese one, I think I never actually tried any other flavour. Saw the other ones at my friends plates, so does look great but when I found my favourite dish I always stick with it :)


Best pizza in London, innovative too! Really cool space, perfect for a party or a low key dinner! 


Fantastic pizzas, properly made. Yet to have a better pizza in an Italian restaurant in London.


These boys do the best pizzas in London hands down. We need Baz & Fred's to open up a restaurant west -chorizo is my favourite and their garlic bread is banging...... tidy


The chorizo one was delicious! I'll be back to sample the others... ;-)


Don't normally do these sorts of reviews - mainly because most take-away food is cold and tasteless ( sweepings generalisation but you know what I mean). To create a healthy, tasty and filling pizza ticks all the boxes. They clearly use 1st class ingredients and the Chadwicks ovens ( I've done my research) cook a lovely pizza. 3 years ago Patty & Bun exploded on the London scene, I feel this outfit could do to pizza, what P&B did to burgers.


The Chorizo and Chilli Pizza is absolutely incredible! Don't go to Borough and miss out on Flat Iron Square and Baz&Fred's. Really fun, cool place with nice people. I even met Baz and Fred!! Top guys.


I am not a massive pizza eater but these guys have converted me into a dough loving, mozzarella munching, tomato tickling Italian nutter! Defiantly the best pizza I've ever had. Big up Baz & Fred's!


I've had some awesome pizzas, but B&F pizzas top them all. Go gorge on one of them, they're ACE!


No better place for fresh produce, perfectly crisped pizzas, London's best garlic Mayo, value for money and always service with a smile. highly recommended 


Would I recommend, 100% yes! Fantastic pizza, great service and very reasonably priced.


Easily the best pizza I have had in years. Cooked and priced to perfection. Highly recommend!


Amazing pizza and even better price! Great quality and excellent service.


PLEASE OPEN ANOTHER RESTAURANT SOON- can't get enough of your pizzas.......... Who needs to go to Italy when you have pizzas like these in the heart of London!!!!


Love Baz and Fred - such a cool venue. Fun team and vibe. Recommend the goats cheese and/or parma ham.


Every pizza lover MUST go. Delicious specials and great lunch deals... If you haven't been you are missing out! 


Great variety, still can't decide which is my favourite having sampled them all. LOVE


I must be Baz and Fred's best customer, I'd reluctantly admit to eating over 100 of these in my short life. Great guys and even better pizzas - you may as well delete the dominos app from your phone if you live anywhere near SE1. I unashamedly represent the underrated and criminally underpriced (£8!) salami, fresh chili and house pesto pizza - these guys have always seemed to care lots about their ingredients from day one and that shows no signs of stopping🍕
