Pizza Union KX: Super cheap & ‘superveloce’ pizzeria in King’s Cross

I’m a long-time die-hard Pizza Union fan, having eaten at the Spitalfields outpost more times than I can count.  I was pretty excited, therefore, to hear that a new Pizza Union was throwing open its pizza oven a three-minute walk from King’s Cross station, on Pentonville Road.  So what is it about this Roman-style pizzeria that excites me so?

A 12” margherita pizza costs £3.95.  Think about this.  You get change from a fiverIn London.  Just wow.

The most expensive pizza on the menu is only £6, and that one’s laden with toppings and is super gourmet.  Best news ever – grab a Moretti beer from the fridge in celebration 🙂

And these pizzas are my favourite in London, I reckon – not just down to the price.  Thin and crispy, they’re made fresh and fire-baked in as little as three minutes (they don’t call it superveloce [superfast] for nothing!).  Toppings are generous and the crust is cornflour-dusted and perfect with a pot of garlic dip.  Gluten-free pizza fans can rejoice too – GF dough is available for just £1.

Your Pizza Union experience is only complete with the arrival of a Dolce dessert – a ring of dough stuffed with sweetness, from £2.95.  Choose from Nutella, Chocolate & Coconut or Salted Caramel & Peanuts, and be warned that Italian restaurant puddings will never satisfy again after this.

No reservations, but service is so speedy that tables turn over quickly, and I’ve never struggled to get a seat.  You can also get takeaway, though.

In a lively, fast-moving setting with photogenic tiled tables and neon signs, Pizza Union’s latest branch has solidified it as my favourite Italian spot in London whenever a superveloce, super cheap, super more-ish dinner is required.
