Putting the Punk in Pizza
In the last few years the Glasgow food scene has seen an eruption of burger joints scattered throughout the city. You can’t walk around the city centre without someone pointing to one of the abundance of burger restaurants and proclaiming “they do the best burger in Glasgow.” I think everyone can agree that it’s time for something new. Burgers are dead, you heard it here first.
Pizza Punks, located next to Bread Meats Bread on St. Vincent Street, is ripping up the rule book on how pizza is traditionally served and is ushering in a new era for the doughy Italian dish in Glasgow.
The cool new eatery boasts freshly made Neapolitan- style pizzas, a built in a custom made wood fire oven dedicated solely to cooking the nation’s favourite Italian dinner.
What makes Pizza Punks truly unique is their vast array of toppings that come at no extra charge. The customer pays £9 flat rate for their pizza and included in that price is as many toppings as your heart desires. There’s none of this ‘£1 per extra topping’ malarkey.
Pizza Punks’ tasty recipe will blow you away with every bite. The soft dough and their tangy tomato sauce has the tasty and authentic vibes that so many pizza places are missing.
As well as the ‘create your own’ option, you can opt for one of their tried and tested toppings, or for something slightly different, try something from their small plate or bruschetta section. The hummus, avocado, sweetcorn and chili bruschetta is a definite winner.
If you’re looking for a sugar rush Pizza Punks’ extensive dessert and shake menu will give you the hit you need. Cookies, homemade ice cream and mega shakes are on the menu for your full sugar blow-out.
The hype for pizza punks is real. Don’t miss out
