This pizza is worth the train journey


In London, pizza lovers are queuing up for viral spots like Crisp – but just outside of the city, there’s another joint gaining cult status. Vincenzo’s in Bushey Village, Hertfordshire, has taken off on TikTok lately, attracting fans from all over the country including a string of A-listers: Stormzy, Chase and Status and Bicep have all enjoyed pizzas from there recently. So what’s behind the hype?

Vincenzo’s, Bushey: The Backstory

Located in the heart of Bushey, a village not far from Watford, Vincenzo’s is a pizza restaurant founded in 2020 by ex-teacher Tom Vincent. Tom travelled the globe to discover the secrets of the world’s best pizzas, exploring everywhere from Brooklyn to Naples. He then returned to the UK and launched Vincenzo’s, initially serving pizzas via a hatch residency during lockdown, and going on to build his own restaurant from scratch in a former old sandwich shop.
