The pizza base is very light, somewhat like a ciabatta (apparently it takes 20 hours to develop) and the staff really care about the quality of the pizza, with weekly specials if you want to try something new (salads are also available, but I didn't...More

A sophisticated and healthy version of the pizza by-the-slice you'd find in Italy. A great range too for all tastes, from the classic flavours of pepperoni and four seasons to a superb vegan treat! A wonderful light base, not at all heavy, but satisfying and...More

Popped in here for lunch with a colleague - service was fast, the pizza was really good and we went back again for a second slice. It's quick and easy but more authentic than the usual chain restaurants.

Description
We are PIZZA ROSSA, the award-winning company which sells high quality pizza al taglio - by the square slice - inspired by the street food vendors of Italy. Delicious and authentic, our pizza is freshly made daily. We mix the dough in small batches using a little known artisan proving process which can last up to 24 hours. The dough is vegan, with lower levels of gluten, yeast and salt than most pizzas, and contains no sugar or preservatives. Our toppings come from the finest ingredients, all carefully sourced, from buffalo mozzarella to the freshest vegetables quickly chargrilled to seal in all the flavour. The result? A highly digestible, lower in calories, classic pizza, easy to eat on-the-go. It takes 90 seconds from placing your order to your first bite of piping hot deliciousness. We believe it's what foodies, in a hurry or not, have been waiting for. You'll also find tasty pasta dishes, Italian pastries, cakes and great coffee, from morning until closing time.
