Leith pizzeria serving sourdough pizzas which strives for the highest possible quality ingredients while also supporting local suppliers.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

One of The Shore's more recent additions, East Pizzas is a cosy wee place specialising in sourdough pizzas made using ingredients sourced as locally as possible. A board on the wall proudly displays the names of nearby suppliers, and there's a broad selection of Scottish drinks behind the counter. There's a nice variety of starters on offer, including olives, smoked almonds, air-dried ham and organic mozzarella balls. As you might expect from the name, the main courses are exclusively pizza-based, including a number of vegetarian options, plus a vegan pizza with olives, capers, chilli and oregano. For meat eaters, the venison salami with caramelised onions and Hebridean blue cheese is wonderfully sweet and tangy. There's also a gluten-free option using a chickpea pancake base. Unlike some pizzerias, these dishes aren't so huge that they carelessly spill across the crockery: portions are sensible, making three courses a tempting and realistic prospect. Sticking with the theme, follow up by indulging in a chocolate pizza with ice-cream or a banana pizza with caramel, cinnamon and ice-cream, or perhaps something a little less pizza-oriented.
