Takeaway Pizza from The Old Bakery Noads Corner, Bath

As established wedding caterers, this brother and sister duo responded quickly to Covid-19, using their existing pizza oven and experience to launch a new aspect of their business - a fantastic example of impressive & successful pivoting during these difficult times! 🤩

This operates via a pre-order system which is either via text or call, making it super easy. It is collection-only with allocated slots every 10 minutes. Upon collection, we were warmly greeted by Sarah, their front-of-house who told us a bit about the business while her brother (the chef) finished off our order in the back.  

Their pizzas are woodfired, hand-stretched and extremely tasty. 

Margherita 🍕 [£6.75]

Margherita is always a classic choice and its simplicity is a great way to test the quality of a pizza. This one was done well: it had a good ratio between mozzarella and tomato and as they use parmesan on top of all their pizzas, it had an additional deeper cheesy taste as well as the fresh mozzarella on top. 

Roasted Mediterranean vegetables, sunblush tomatoes, rocket & balsamic glaze 🌿 [£7]

We ordered this one without any cheese at all, making it vegan, and in our opinion, it did not need it. The tomato sauce was rich and sweet, the roasted veg - courgettes, peppers, red onion - nicely cooked and generously distributed, as was the rocket. We loved the additional sweetness and slight tang coming from the balsamic glaze and the chopped fresh tomatoes were a nice feature. All toppings were plentiful, making every bite incredibly delicious. The dough was soft and moist and tasted very fresh and homemade. The bases had been dusted in semolina, giving it a lovely texture. 

Just as a side note, they use parmesan on top of all of their pizzas as standard (it's traditional and gives them such a beautiful taste, however, if you are a strict veggie they have an alternative, just let them know). They also have gluten-free bases & vegan cheese, making this accessible to everyone!

Classic fresh tomato and basil bruschetta 🍅 [£3.75]

The bruschetta base was very similar to the pizzas but a little thinner and therefore crispier. Again, the fresh tomatoes were super sweet and plentiful and the garlic evident yet not overpowering. Already quick fans of the balsamic glaze from the pizza, we were happy to see it featured again on the bruschetta. Our overall verdict: quite light, fresh, sweet and very tasty. 

Homemade Vanilla Pannacotta with raspberry coulis & seasonal berries 🍓 [£2.95]

Not only did this look stunning, but it tasted incredible. The pannacotta was super creamy, and the raspberry coulis a perfect balance between sweet and tangy, wonderfully complementing the creaminess. The fresh fruit was a lovely addition and high quality. We also thought the portion size was generous, especially for the price. We would definitely recommend this!
