  • I dined with my die-hard Vegan friend who raves about this restaurant and the fact that it is packed to the rafters on most days, lunch and dinner, is a clear sign they are doing it right. Whatever your diet, and this is a particularly good choice for those that are meat, dairy or gluten-free, there’s plenty to love about Purezza.” – ReviewPurezza Review – The Graphic Foodie
  • “The toppings you’ll find on the pizzas at Purezza leave nothing to be desired. Enjoy roasted eggplant, potatoes, and shaved seitan, or the delectable wild forest mushrooms, smoked tofu, and black truffle base. For chili lovers, there’s also the Vulcano, which features green chili, dried chili flakes and sriracha sauce topped over roasted veggies.”Feature – 10 Best Places For Vegan Fast Food In London – The Travel
  • “I ordered a margarita which comes with dairy free cheese of course. I also added olives to the top of mine. I can honestly say this is the best gluten free base I have ever had. It was so soft but also crispy. I am in love!”ReviewPurezza: Vegan and Gluten Free Pizza Review – Fittie FODMAP London
  • “We had the Parmigiana Party pizza, and the Here Comes Truffle pizza (which if you like truffles you MUST order this as it was amazing). We also tried the Dough Balls which were stuffed with gooey melty vegan cheese. Seriously SO good. I would rate this restaurant 10/10. Everything from the atmosphere to the service, to the wine list, and of course the food was fantastic.”ReviewVegan Trip to London – Restaurant Reviews – It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken
  • “The pizza which I opted for at Purezza this time around was their Parmigiana Party, which also happens to have been the winner of the ‘best pizza’ title in the UK’s national pizza awards. A plant based pizza winning best pizza?! Who’d have thought it?
    I can completely see why this pizza took the crown – with a tomato and mozzarella base, topped with aubergine parmigiana, crumbled sausages and nutritional yeast, this pizza tastes the perfect mixture of smoky, cheesy and gooey. The sourdough base is so soft and chewy, it honestly all goes together so brilliantly and makes the perfect pizza, which you could easily forget is completely plant based whilst eating it.” – ReviewThe Best Vegan Pizza in Brighton?

  • FeatureA Bite-Sized Guide to London’s Food Scene – Jubel
  • “The Parmigiana Party tasted incredible. It was the first time I had ever tasted a vegan pizza, and I was sceptical about the plant-based cheese alternatives, but I was blown away. The pizza base was so fluffy and doughy, and the toppings were so delicious, creamy and cheesy. The sausages tasted amazing too. Certainly one of the best pizzas I have ever tasted and I can’t wait to return to try some of the others!”Review – Purezza | Brighton’s Best Vegan Pizzeria – Lily Rose Richards

  • The ‘Parmigiana Party’ which is “Red tomato base with smoked mozzarella, aubergine parmigiana, crumbled sausages, topped with a dusting of nutritional yeast.” And ‘Telling Porkies’ – “White base with melted cheddar, mixed wild forest mushrooms, marinated pulled BBQ pieces and sundried tomatoes.” – Both were mouth-wateringly good, and we both said they were the best we have ever had in our lives.” – Review – Eating Out As a Vegan: Purezza – Trident Media

  • I spent the first couple of weeks of Veganuary mourning the loss of cheese. It takes a while to get used to the flavour and texture of vegan cheese and I’d still say it’s a work in progress for me. However, I did enjoy this delicious plant-based pizza from Purezza, Camden which struck the balance just right. Topped with aubergines and vegan sausage ‘Parmigiana Party‘ had a tasty cheesy topping that wasn’t too gloopy. The secret was a little bit of their homemade vegan ‘mozzarella’, plus a sprinkling of nutritional yeast to give a stronger flavour.” – FeatureEating Vegan After Veganuary – Healthy Food Magazine
