An Italian-inspired vegan pizza joint.
Most of us go to pizza joints expecting to snap the food, not the room. But Humble Pizza bucks the trend, with its striking, pink-washed interiors,
a tribute to the ‘formica cafés’ of 1950s London.
This bold design move is matched by an equally bold and fully vegan menu. Toppings riff on Italian classics, split between cauliflower and focaccia bases, plus a few soups and salads. The best of the by-the-slice focaccia pizzas were the Tropea (poppy seeds, potato and caramelised red onion that almost overpowered), or the simple Roma (mushrooms, olives and juicy tomatoes).
For anyone scared of a cauliflower pizza base, these have a cracker-like crunch that means you can pretend you’re not even eating cauliflower. Our Genova, had a powerful basil pesto, courgettes and red peppers, flaked macadamias and creamy, ricotta-like tofu balancing out the gentle earthiness of the base.Top marks for flavour, but just a little too brittle. Save space for decadent desserts, too, of focaccia dipped in moreish gianduja (Nutella’s sexier Italian cousin), or the the restaurant’s sinful take on a Mars bar.
Prices are a little steep in places, but friendly service helps make up for it and those focaccia bases will make a lot of vegans happy. Oh, and it’s BYO, too.
The soft colours mirror a concept which believes that the feminine population will be leading the future based on their optimistic view, eccentric personalities and vibrant take on life.
Our attentively curated menu is based around the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients. Each method is subsequently elevated by utilising a flour which is 100% organic and provenance is directly from Mulino Marino, one of Italy’s oldest mills.
The dough is pre-fermented for 72 hours which creates a superb light texture, also easy digestible. Being the flour of its finest grind, the crust presents a rich crunchiness which makes a bite follow one another.
We strongly believe that vegan food can be as rich and tasty as a more “regular” option.
For such reason, we have implemented a selection of cauliflower-based pizzas which are gluten free and low-carb and meet perhaps a wider audience with similar requirements.
In this instance, the cauliflower is pouched in with turmeric which is known for its beneficial effects to the human body. The Truffle and Mushroom is to die for.
Carbs lovers can instead indulge further with a selection of slices (or traditional round shaped) with glorious toppings.
