Purezza opens fourth UK site in Bristol

Purezza, the plant-based restaurant that won the National Pizza Awards in 2018, is opening its fourth UK venue on Bristol’s Gloucester Road.

Following another recent opening in Hove, and the enlargement of its Camden site (tripling in size), vegan concept Purezza has taken over a property formerly occupied by a pork and barbecue restaurant.

It is serving a menu of Neapolitan pizzas, with its own-made vegan mozzarella and sourdough bases, as well as a full gluten-free menu, a large range of cocktails, and raw dishes – including a raw pizza using a base made with seeds and nuts, and raw tiramisu made using finely blended cashew nuts.

The award-winning Parmigiana Party pizza, which uses aubergine parmigiana and meat substitutes for its toppings, is also on the menu.

The restaurant has been fitted out with 100% reclaimed and upcycled furniture, and decoration has been completed with eco-friendly and organic paints.

“We absolutely adore Bristol. It is a fantastic diverse and welcoming city, we have been looking at opportunities to open here since Purezza began back in 2015,” says Tim Barclay, co-founder and co-owner of Purezza.

“Having taken part in the wonderful Bristol Vegfest a couple of times, it was always an amazing experience and it made us eager to put some roots down.

“We’re thrilled that the time has finally come to open our doors and join the thriving restaurant community that exists here, whilst bringing our plant-based pizzas to the people of Gloucester Road and beyond.”

Food will also be available via local delivery services.
