Naughty. Saucy. Hot. Sleazy Pizza certainly isn’t afraid of a pun or two, with some pizzas named after famous adult films from the past. Think foodie sequels like Debbie Does Diavola (white base with pine nuts, mozzarella and spinach) or X-Rated (nduja sausage, black olives and red onion combo)… But it’s not only about good laughs: this new pizza joints believes in back to basics (but fun) pizza: high quality, mouth watering ingredients, thin crust all lovingly crafted in an authentic wood-fired method.
Luca, the founder, sure does know what makes a good pizza memorable: “My father Piero ran an Italian restaurant as I was growing up so I’ve grown up in Sicilian kitchens with fresh ingredients. (…) After looking around for what else is on offer we found a lot of brands lack any identity and we wanted an exciting and memorable pizza place that can have a bit fun with itself so our dirty-minded eatery Sleazy Pizza was born. Luckily we were also able to hire an amazing chef Danilo whose hometown is just outside Napoli (the home of pizza) and he’ll be tossing out “12inch dreams” for free on our launch event!”.
And yes, you’d better join that feast taking place, on November 12th, just off Brick Lane. From 6 pm, there will be free pizza for all, DJ’s, drag performers, live saxophonists, and outdoor bar, giveaways and some cool (temporary) tattoos in the courtyard outside the restaurant. Just sign up on their website to join!
