Base Face Pizza


Neighbourhood Pizzeria in Barnes. Local ingredients, independent producers, slow dough.

What is Slow Dough? to ensure each pizza leaving the kitchen is light and digestible, our dough is fermented for a minimum of 48 hours, that means that when we sell out we won’t have any more until the following day, but you can be guaranteed the highest quality dough every time, so booking is highly recommended to ensure you get fed!

Opened in June 2021 at 300 King Street, read about the journey to a brick and mortar pizzeria from a lockdown driveway pop-up!

Founder Tim Thornton has spent the past 10 years as one of the UK’s most in demand jazz bassists (hence Base Face Pizza), touring the globe and performing at a range of venues from the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall to Glastonbury Festival… Until the Covid-19 pandemic hit and turned life upside down.

Base Face Pizza started life as Zio Tim’s Pizzeria, a pop-up pizzeria on Tim’s driveway during the lockdown in May 2020, serving sourdough pizza from an original Ooni Pro to the local community to raise money for the NHS Charities. During 2020 over 4000 pizzas were served to the people of West London.

Moving off the driveway, Base Face Pizza started popping up at Vindinista Wine Bar in Acton, the Hogarth Club in Chiswick, Kansas Smitty’s Jazz Club and frequented West London’s weekend markets such as Urban Food Fest, Market W3, Ravenscourt Park and Bishop’s Park Market.

Dedicated to the perfection of a Neapolitan inspired style utilising long ferments and healthy grains, without the restrictions of tradition but with a deep respect for it underpinning each pizza that leaves the oven, Base Face Pizza is a Neo-Politan pizza for the discerning digester, with a focus on independent producers, high quality local ingredients, healthy grains and a joy for eating great food.

Now Tim is bringing the best dough in the West to Barnes riverside as he opens his second pizzeria!
