homeslice london review

I reckon I've found the best (and biggest!) pizza London has to offer.

If you fancy deciding for yourself, head for the bustling streets of Covent Garden and escape into Neal's Yard (a small alley which opens up into a courtyard, it can be accessed off Monmouth St).

You'll find Homeslice tucked away in the colourful mish-mash of quirky shops and eateries.

It's a popular place so heading down at peak lunch and dinner times will inevitably mean a bit of a wait. 

We popped in at around 2pm and were seated straight away, so it's sometimes worth seeing if your tummies can hang on for a bit.

It's a cosy spot filled with wooden tables and utilitarian lighting, and there's a gorgeous wall crammed with moroccan tiles (all of which I wanted to steal for my future dream house). They have an open kitchen with a wood fired oven in the corner and the front of the restaurant opens up as shutters which gives the whole place a lovely chilled vibe.

You're not offered a menu, you just pick your favourites from the chalkboard near the door.

It's £20 per pizza (they are HUGE) so tackle one between two of you, or you can grab a slice of some for £4 (I wouldn't recommend, you will be green with envy when you spot the full pizzas sitting on your neighbours tables).

You can mix and match your flavours so we opted for half salami, rocket and parmesan and half pulled pork, radish and mint pesto.

Your pizza is served up on a giant wooden board complete with a slicer so you can decide if you want to tackle it in big or small servings. You eat from paper plates and beware, it gets messy. 

Nothing can prepare you for the size of these beasties. They are genuinely ENORMOUS.

We got stuck in. And it was incredible.

Homeslice pizzas have the best kind of base - thin, crunchy and smothered with fresh tomato.

I'm all for a thin base. Too much dough and you lose all the flavour of the toppings (plus you can't squeeze as much in!)

We were super happy with our choices. The crunchy radish and tangy mint pesto offset the heaviness of the pork beautifully.

And the salami was deliciously oily and flavourful, perfect against the backdrop of rocket and salty parmesan. 

We didn't opt for wine this time, but if you fancy it you pick your colour (red, white or rose) and are brought a huge jug from which you have as much as you fancy. When you've finished up they bring over a ruler, measure how much you've guzzled and charge you accordingly. Dangerous!

I'd really recommend Homeslice. It's much like most popular eateries in London in that it's a bit cramped, and the wait can be a bit of pain. But it's worth it. Totally, totally worth it.
