A new pizzeria opened in January near Spitafields market on Sandy's Lane. 
This restaurant is a massive space with high and lower tables and an open kitchen with the oven. The atmosphere is a bit cold, maybe because the space has high ceiling and it wasn't the busiest time when we went there.
I came to Pizza Union for a late lunch on a sunday with a friend. 
The concept is easy, you order at the counter, they give you a buzzer (same concept as Shake Shack), you find a seat and then you go at the counter again when your pizza is ready. 
I had some doubt about the quality of the pizza when I saw the menu, it says their pizza are all 12 inch and price range is between £3.95 to 6.50. You can see their menu HERE.
When I grab our pizza I was very surprised. I wasn't expecting a pizza like that for this range of price.

I ate a lot of pizza this year and for the first time I think it was a very good value for the quality & quantity of toppings on it. Some other places, you pay more than £8 your pizza and you only have 5 slices of sausages or ham on it. 
We had two different pizza, the Manzo and the Pepperoni. Both were delicious, they were perfectly cooked, thin bases with crushy crusts.
Manzo : Tomato sauce, mozzarella, beef , garlic, green chilies, rocket 
Pepperoni: Tomato sauce, mozzarella, double pepperoni 
As a dessert I had a Dolce, it was probably the best part of the meal, this dish is a dough ring filled with Nutella and mascarpone. It was so good, I licked my finger at the end to be sure I haven't forgot any nutella or mascarpone on it. 
Dolce : nutella & mascarpone

Pizza Union is a great place to enjoy tasty and cheap pizza. I look forward to go again and try the Carne. I just think they should improve the decoration so it looks a bit more cosy when the place is less full outside the rush hours. And they should supply some sauce to dip the crusts.
