Fun and funky comic strip-themed pizzeria with a social conscience.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Formerly a roaming street-food pizzeria, Pizza Geeks settled into its Haymarket home in late 2018. Theirs is a small but varied menu with pizzas and sides, all named after pop-cultural references from gaming, comic books, film and TV. Starters include dragon ballz: dough balls stuffed with two fillings of your choice (cheese and onion work beautifully with their garlic mayo dip), and the MacGyver and cheese, a delicious pot of macaroni cheese, pesto and breadcrumbs. The pizzas are made in the Neapolitan style; thin bases are loaded with toppings and crusts are soft and chewy with a distinctive charred flavour. There's a good range of ingredients and toppings, including Scottish favourites such as Stornoway black pudding and haggis from Macsween. Although primarily a takeaway, there's room for 22 diners, and it's a bright and colourful space adorned with geeky knick-knacks. All this, and the guys work with local homeless charity Soul Food, donating pizzas to vulnerable people at a special event every month.
