SPQR Pizzeria

Woodfired sourdough pizzas, canned cocktails and Nutella pies at Docklands.

Fans of Liverpool Street's SPQR now have another way to get their hands on its signature woodfired sourdough pizzas, with a second outpost opening within Docklands precinct The District.

While SPQR's latest is fuelled by the same pizza obsession as its sibling, you'll spy a few tweaks to both the experience and the food offering. As always, the heroes are the bases, slow-fermented for 48 hours, decked out in primo ingredients and finished in a custom-built woodfired oven. But here, thanks to a nifty new 'dough lab', you'll also have the chance to watch the chefs hand-shaping the dough balls throughout each day.

SPQR The District is whipping up a simple menu of four white- and four red-based pizzas, running from classics like a capricciosa ($17 for seven inch, $26 for 12) and pepperoni ($15/$24), to the Jim's Pie — an assembly of 'nduja, portobello mushroom, pecorino, stracciatella and oregano ($17/$26). Opt for a standard 12-inch pizza, or have any variety served as a one-person seven-inch pizzette.

Vegan cheese and gluten-free bases are available, too, as is garlic bread ($5), party packs and classic desserts like tiramisu ($10/$18) and Nutella-topped pizza ($10/$16). Street art graces the walls, while the drinks lineup champions smashable tinnies, Curatif cocktail cans and a tight selection of cider and wine.

Takeaway is available through your mates at Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Menulog.
