Under £10 - Bar Centrale

Not the best pizza in the world but....

Under £10 - Bar Centrale

As a restaurant critic I am strangely perhaps not really interested in pizza. Pizza is pizza.

Barcentrale7Barcentrale - the scooterThey even park their scooters in the dining room.

It is bad (and bad for you usually) or it is okay. I think of it as invariably dull food. Especially after the second bite..

When people say they have found the best-pizza-in-the-world (or usually in Brixton), I just get dumbfounded. What kind of dumbo yardstick are they using? 

Barcentrale6Barcentrale - the barHow good can pizza be unless you have starved yourself for five days beforehand?  But I like Bar Centrale because they seem to do things properly.

Barcentrale4Barcentrale - the tableThe big picture is their Romana – olives, capers, anchovies. You can read that as my entry into the World’s 50 Best Pizza Houses.  A thin crusty base smeared with a little tomato and mozzarella – as are all the bases.

They even park their scooters in the dining room.
