Pizza Punks Newcastle Review (with Kids)

I worked with Pizza Punks in 2021 but this post is not part of that collaboration and has not been asked / paid for.  Prices / menus correct as of January 2022. Please check with Pizza Punks direct for the most up-to-date info when booking.

You will find Pizza Punks on Grey Street in Newcastle City Centre. It is just next to Zizzi and on the same side (but further down the road) as the Theatre Royal. We absolutely love it here and would recommend to families looking for a pre-theatre meal or a decent pizza restaurant in town.

Walk-ins may be available but I would strongly recommend booking ahead (which you can easily do online here), especially if you are planning a trip over the weekend / school holidays / if there is a big show on at the Theatre Royal. 

The main concept behind Pizza Punks, is that their pizzas are one set price of £11 and you can order as many toppings as you like for that price with no supplements or hidden costs.

The pizzas are fantastic here and the dough is made from an aged sourdough starter and proofed for 48 hours for maximum flavour. Standard pizzas are 12" and substantial. They *should* be enough to fill a hungry teen. 

Below is an example of their menu and topping choices. Click on the photos to enlarge. Vegan, Vegetarian, GF and Halal options are available.

As well as their signature 'create your own pizzas', there are a range of starters, sides and set pizzas to choose from too. Personally, I'd always want to create my own. We had fun making up names for our personal pizza creations too. 

I do think I could be tempted by Pizza Fondue as a starter next time though.

It is table service and you order your toppings via your server rather than visiting a buffet / pizza station and the whole restaurant has a 'cool' vibe with a decent playlist and neon lighting (hence the very bad lighting in my photos). You can watch the dough being spun and pizzas going into the huge pizza oven as you wait too. Staff are all super friendly too. 

If you are visiting with smaller children who may not manage a full 12" pizza, there is a kids option which includes a smaller choice of toppings on an 8" base. This is available for £7 (see menu below - click on it to enlarge). 

I would say the restaurant is child-friendly and I know most teens will enjoy a trip here too. It feels more sophisticated (and instaworthy) than pizza hut and probably a bit cooler than your local neighbourhood Italian restaurant.

As well as pizzas, Pizza Punks have put together a fabulous cocktail list featuring the classics plus a few twists. I tried a Drumstick Caiprisma on my last visit which was vanilla infused bacardi, bacardi rasperry & lime juice plus a drumstick lollypop. Very refreshing (and cute). 

Again, apologies for the purple haze on these photos. The Neon signs were not working in my favour! Our pizzas were so good though. They didn't scrimp on toppings, the dough has a perfect rise and was the perfect level of chewiness with a couple of blackened bits which I personally love and there was plenty of pizza sauce too. We all finished every last bite and were stuffed. Satisfying and tasty! 

I usually stick with plain margarita but the chance to order whatever I wanted allowed me the chance to try something new too.
