The GlasgowLiving Review: Pizza Punks
Being massive pizza lovers, a few of the GlasgowLiving team decided to head to Pizza Punks after hearing amazing things. We went along to try out some of the Artisan & Wood Fired Pizzas and as expect we were not disappointed…
Style: The best way to describe Pizza Punks would be ‘Casual Dining’. The venue was really interesting – stripped back to bare brickwork with neon signs on the walls and windows. A highlight would be the “Love Will Tear Us Apart Again” sign… ‘tear’… pizza… get it?! The wood-burning oven where the pizzas are prepared in, is also on display, which gives off a really nice touch.
Best For: Meeting with friends, casual date night, groups. It is also ideal to order in if you fancy a takeaway or to the office for a tasty lunch as they now deliver!
What we ate: Pizza, Pizza and more Pizza! We ordered a slices of pizza each, which is an amazing idea! Two of us tried the Lemon Thyme Roast Chicken, Speck, Spring Onion, Panna and Scamorza Pizza and the other tried a slice of Pepperoni, Mozzarella and Chilli Flakes. The pizzas tasted really fresh and the crusts were perfect for dipping!
We also got a few sides to share, we ordered the Cheese, Garlic and Rosemary Focaccia topped with Honey and a portion of the Candied Bacon, which was UNBELIEVABLE!
What we drank: We had to try the alcoholic floats! We tried a Vanilla Coke Float, made with Vanilla Vodka and a Whisky & Irn Bru Float. It sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it was actually really nice!
The Verdict: We had an amazing evening at Pizza Punks, the food was faultless and the staff were super friendly and knew their stuff. We also found out that they make all of their dough and sauces from scratch onsite using only the most premium ingredients. All of the cured meats and cheeses are imported from Italy and the pizzas are made in the custom-made wood burning oven at a slightly lower temperature. This allows more air into the dough, ensuring that the pizza is light and crispy and easy to pick up and enjoy in slices! Overall, we had a great experience and are already planning our next visit…!
