It’s just dawned on me that my last three posts have been entirely food-based. Whilst that wasn’t exactly my intention, I’m certainly not complaining about it, and I’m sure you lot aren’t too bothered either. I’ve been meaning to write about Pizza Workshop for absolutely blimmin’ ages, as I think it’s overtaken long-time faves Pizza Provencale to clinch the top spot of my much-coveted Best Pizza in Bristol title.
I met up with Little Lyzi for some long overdue pints in the sun last night, and before too long our tummies began to grumble. It doesn’t take much to persuade me to go out for dinner, and less so if there’s pizza involved. I scoured Wriggle for a decent deal for the evening and we settled on opting for a midweek dinner date at the brilliant Pizza Workshop on North St, in hip and happening Southville.
Pizza Workshop prides itself on doing one thing, and doing it well. And let me tell you, it does it bloody well. The overwhelmingly delicious simplicity of their pizzas is what makes them so great; from the chewy flavoursome base, the creamy Fior di Latte cheese on top, to the fact that there is only ever 8 pizza choices on their menu, 4 changing seasonally. Their restaurant decor reflects their minimalist approach beautifully as well, with long wooden tables ideal for whole pizza parties with your pals.
I always get the same thing every single time I come here but this evening the deal in question was their deliciously simple Pizza One with an additional topping for £6. So I opted for mushrooms, Lyzi had chorizo, and Tom (who had come to pick us up, so we could hardly deny him a pizza to say thanks) had goats cheese. Washed down with a couple more beers – or in my case, a Cawston Rhubarb Press… I cannot get enough of this stuff – and we were all very happy customers.
I honestly can’t recommend this place highly enough. If you’re in the BS3 area and you’ve yet to pay them a visit, get down there, pronto!
