Food Review: Baz And Fred Pizza Baz and Fred 4

Purists, avert your gaze. Flat Iron Square's resident pizza guys are using some extremely non-trad ovens.

Designed by Baz's sculptor godfather, the silver discs lining their stand look more like an art installation or alien spacecraft than ovens. The results are impressive though, with a Neapolitan pizza's floppy, soupy-ish centre but a thinner crust. Toppings are high-quality and generous, the chorizo and 'nduja pizza heavy with fiery meat. Maybe a touch too heavy — this is a street food set-up, and eating with your plate balanced on a ledge might work better with a stiffer, more portable slice. We settle for rolling the slices up like fat, cheese-filled cigars.

Baz and Fred pizza: not the simplest to eat standing, but worth the mess.

Baz and Fred, Flat Iron Square, 68 Union Street, SE1 1SG.
