Glasgowist Score

Glasgow is entering a pizza golden age as this basic dish is elevated to a thrilling high standard. We have found a new contender for the best pizza in the city at Pizza Punks on St. Vincent Street, the latest venture from chef Nik Biok from Bar Soba. Is it better than Paesano? The toppings combinations seem more exciting. The end product is certainly satisfying. Time will tell.

Pizza Punks is a city centre hangout with a big personality. We like the soundtrack, the relaxed vibe, enthusiastic staff and the gorgeous big pizza oven where the magic happens.

One of the main reasons we wanted to visit was the fact that the a la carte menu allows you to create your own pizza – any topping you want for a total of nine quid. It’s a challenge, and a bargain.

We had two attempts and in the end, there was only one winner. The Glasgowist pizza was created and demolished with gusto.

Here’s our pizza design, let us know how you like your pizza punked (we’ve included all the options at the bottom of this post).
