  • Laboratorio Pizza, Great Portland Street, London

    This little gem has just opened in the heart of West London, a mere 5-minute walk north from Oxford Circus.

    My verdict? In a word: Excellent!

    Their oven is a Stefano Ferrara, currently running on gas (due to local regulations) but wood-capable. And their pizzas are in true Neapolitan style, virtually textbook VPN. (And of course, they taste glorious.)

    The Italian owner would be happy to talk about pizzas and ovens all day. I asked him what flour they use, and not surprisingly he confirmed Caputo.

    (One or two of their pizzas are 'white' by the way, i.e. no tomato sauce, so don't fall foul of that!)

    Check it out, folks!


    Here's one they made earlier...

    Talking to the guy again today, he says that they hope to open fully (i.e. to go in and sit down) on 4 July. At the moment it's takeaway only, from the door, and he says that they cannot survive like this indefinitely.
