Detroit Style Pizza At Party Store Pizza Bermondsey

If you’re a pizza lover, I mean, who isn’t? You’ll want to check out the new Party Store Pizza at Maltby Street Bermondsey, London SE1. We were intrigued when we saw that this pizza joint specialised in Detroit Square Pizzas. Who knew that Detroit Pizza was a thing? Not me, and Homeboy is from Chicago, and he hadn’t heard of them either. We were hungry and curious, so we sat outside the Maltby Street restaurant and ordered ourselves one. If you’re looking for pizzerias in SE1 or pizza restaurants in Bermondsey, check out Party Store Pizza.

So, what can I tell you about this pizza and how it differs from other pizzas? As I’ve mentioned, it’s square, which seems odd because we are used to round pizzas, but it was easier to cut and divi up between two or more people. It’s a deep-dish pizza, so you get a lot of filling on the top. We decided to go for the Margherita (not the vegan version). It was oozing with mozzarella, and the tomato sauce topping was noticeably yummy with a sweet taste. With a few sprigs of basil and a sprinkle of Parmesan, we were in pizza heaven. The base is different because it’s a bit like focaccia bread with air bubbles. I loved the base; it was light and noticeably tasty. Overall, this was a memorable pizza that made me feel warm and cosy inside, which doesn’t happen very often!
