I got a wee ping from the guys at Pizza Punks inviting me to come in and enjoy a pizza, I liked it last time I was here (ages ago) and heard that its only gotten better so I accepted and set a date to go in.

Tonight guys I was getting Pizza Punked ūüôā

On entering tonight it still had that very cool modern, and funky look and vibe.

I was shown to my table, and had a wee look at the menu.

The menu

I had a few options tonight, one was to build my own pizza or choose one….tough choice.

I decided to choose one from the menu and selected one from the staff favourites to see what they like.

Hopefully the staff had good taste, as the one I spotted sounded really good.

The pizza I chose tonight was the “Say Cheeseburger”

Say Cheeseburger £n/a (normally £9)
Red Sauce / Applewood Smoked Cheddar / Meatballs / Burger Relish / Pickles

This pizza sounded really good and right up my street.

On arrival this looked good, smelled good and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

YES!!!! this was so good!!! the base was nice and thin, the toppings had an amazing flavour and the whole bite was just YUM!!!

Overall

My return to Pizza Punks was a good one, and firstly I would like to thank Pizza Punks Glasgow for inviting me tonight and spoiling me with a really good pizza.

I am going to shock you, I ONLY had the pizza yes you read that right I didnt get anything else as that was a very filling pizza but so yummy!!!

One of my pet hates when I go out for a meal is SUPER LOUD music where I cant hear the person across the table from me. Pizza Punks Glasgow had it at a very nice level, and they play some really cool tunes from Queen, ACDC to pop and disco…something for everyone.

Next visit I will try another staff fav and do a wee review.

Guys if you like good pizza, Pizza Punks Glasgow is now in my top 3 Pizza places due to the taste and atmosphere.

My review above was an invite but that didn’t influence my review in anyway, I started blogging only wanting to be 100% honest and will continue, invite, paid etc it will always be 100% honest.

Visit Date : Sunday 29th January 2017

Since my last visit I have heard from several people (including some bloggers) that after their first visit to Pizza Punks, the second visit was very poor service etc I decided to check this out for myself.

I didn’t have any problems with my last visit, so I was interested to see if this news¬†was true.

Check out my previous review of Pizza Punks

We entered tonight and greeted and shown to our table, tonight was actually the busiest I’ve seen here (but then again I only glance in when passing).

I have always liked the way Pizza Punks is inside, it’s a very modern and funky look and my feelings tonight are just the same.

We were seated at the window, so we got a nice view of Glasgow and the passing people.

Starter / While we wait :

chilli cheese ,garlic and rosemary foccacia topped with honey £3.50

d60e3bc5-801f-497a-af9d-2fd47cd828b5

Firstly this wasn’t¬†foccacia it was more like bruschetta with the topping.

Apart from it being more like bruschetta, this was really tasty and had a little kick to it.

This was probably too much as a starter for me, even though we had half each as it was very filling.

Pizza :

nduja + chorizo sausage, scorched red peppers, caramelised red onion £9

c6edbd39-d93a-4efd-860a-441cc7889b09

Tonight I shared the pizza and just like last time this pizza was very nice, the base was just thin enough which is just the way I like them.

The flavour was nice to, not very spicy which is perfect for me and an ok amount of chorizo. Personally it could have had more chorizo but thats a personal thing.

Overall :

Overall just like last time I had a nice evening, and can’t really fault the food or the service.

For value for money you can’t go wrong with a ¬£9 pizza, with any toping of your choice. Pizza Punks and¬†Paesano Pizza are my two favourite places in Glasgow so far for Pizza.

I don’t know what the issues other people have had here, either it has been bad but I have just been lucky or they might have just been in on a busy day and thats effected things.

Visit Date : 2nd October 2016

At the time of writing this, Pizza Punks have only been open about just over a week.

There was a special invite where you could go to an exclusive preview the night before it opened to try a few things, but unfortunately I wasn’t one that was selected. So I decided to give it a shot this weekend and see what I missed.

I am a lover of all things Italian and one of my favourite foods is pizza, but it has to be done right.

Pizza Punks has been done up very rustic and fresh, minimalistic and has funky neon signs. The staff are very nice, and very attentive with cool t-shirts with puns on them….I will let you take a read at them when you go.

Starter

We placed our order but while we waited we ordered some Candied Bacon bacon for the table. I have never had this but since I have a sweet tooth, and ‚ÄúCandied‚ÄĚ was in the name I thought why not.

This was very nice, you had the amazing bacon flavour with hints of sweet added to it which was a winner for me.

Candied Bacon : £3.00

Main

Pizza Punks you don’t order pre-selected pizzas you get to make your own, but telling the waiter what base, and toppings you want. You get as many toppings as you like all for one cost which is great and cheaper than most of the restaurants in Glasgow that sell pizza.

Below is what I went for :

  • sourdough base
  • san marzano tomato(infused with garlic, oregano, basil and olive oil)
  • chipotle + chocolate pulled pork
  • pepperoni
  • Ayrshire bacon
  • Tuscan sausage
  • caramelised red onion
  • olives

When the pizza is brought to you its not pre-sliced, you get a proper pizza cutter to cut the pizza to the slice sizes you want.

The pizza was very nice, and I enjoyed every mouthful. The base was nice and thin, which is what I really like and is like the proper Italian bases.

The option to make your own with AS MANY toppings as you like is a great and unique way to sell, and I think they will do well from this and again at the great price of £9.00

Pizza : £9.00

Dessert

This was very good, loads of chocolate and my first milkshake where I have had to eat it before drinking it.

I have to say this shake and also Byron’s are my two favourite places to get shakes in Glasgow.

Punk Milkshake (trip choc brownie) £6.00

Overall :

What a shocker I was mega full when I left, but I had a great time and really enjoyed my food. The atmosphere was good, everyone I looked at were enjoying it and their food. The music was just right, you didn’t need to shout over it, which is something I really hate doing.

Yes I would go again, as I really enjoyed it and the bacon mmmmmm

Do check this place out!

Till next time
