Review by Emily Dudding
This week I went to sample the food at PizzaStorm, situated at Eldon Square in Newcastle, which, surprisingly, was a restaurant that I hadn’t ate at before. I knew to expect pizza, however for someone as picky as myself, I wanted to know if this meal would pass the test. I can strongly admit that it certainly did.
Ordering food from both the old and new menu, it was a hard choice to make indeed. From the old menu we asked for the ‘Dirty Mighty Meaty’ pizza and a side which was loaded wedges and let me tell you, these wedges, although they weren’t new on the menu, tasted absolutely gorgeous, the type you would crave on an evening when you’re feeling peckish. Off the new menu we ordered the ‘Meatball Marinara’ pizza and the divine ‘Creamy Chicken, Bacon and Potato’ pizza, something which I certainly was not expecting to see on a pizza menu, I had to give it a try. Now, I know many might say that potato doesn’t go on Pizza, but trust me, with this pizza, it was a perfect match. All the toppings went together so well and it tasted absolutely delicious. It was one of those times where you take your first bite and know that this meal is going to be so worth it, it was literally mouthwatering. For sides, we ordered the traditional Garlic Bread Bites, which everyone must try if they haven’t already, and the new Squash and Mac which I would recommend to anyone who likes it cheesy.
All the pizzas are cooked fresh after deciding which toppings you would like and considering you don’t get to choose the size of the pizza you order, I would say that this size would suit all. As well as this, there is a range of different pizzas on the menu, from the simple ‘Pepperoni’ to the unique and different ‘Vegan Hoisin Duck’. So if you’re more of a plain Jane or a spicy Sangarita, there is something for everyone. However, if none of these appeal to you and if you’re a picky eater like me, PizzaStorm are happy for you to choose your own toppings and create your own pizza too, after all you can never have too many toppings. PizzaStorm are also happy to remove particular toppings from the signature pizzas, such as red onions, jalapenos, etc. for those with allergies or preferences.
There are a range of different choices for drinks too, and not just your general Diet Coke and 7Up… On offer were drinks such as Fizzy Vimto and Sunkist Orange/Lemon. You think it can’t get better than that? But then they tell you that these are bottomless drinks! The refills are awaiting. A pizza subway you think? You betcha.
The best thing is that all the food on the menu comes at a good, affordable price, coming in at £7.55 for the most expensive pizza where you can choose as may toppings as you want. What a deal! I would certainly recommend this to any one of any age, as I can confidently say that there is something for everyone. It would be a perfect place to go for either a day time or evening meal and it is so easy to find as well. Inside, it is relaxing and holds a simple and chilled out vibe. As well as this, the inside is picture perfect, with cheesy quotations painted on the wall as décor to match the cheesy pizza toppings, it gives a really modern look. Eldon square gym is in spitting distance of your table, so there will be no need for you to feel guilty after you tell the family that you’ve been to the gym tonight. Wi-Fi is also on offer for when you feel the need to post pictures of how good the food is on snapchat or for when you tag @PizzaStorm on your Instagram stories. The staff were very accommodating, very friendly and very welcoming as well.
For those who would prefer to stay inside this winter, you’ll be happy to know that PizzaStorm isn’t stopping there. You can now order the food to be brought to you via Deliveroo. The food was absolutely scrumptious and I will defiantly be going again. It was a little pizza heaven, like the wall says.
