About us

If you like pizza, I think we can be friends.

We set up shop on Fore St in Exeter a little over three years ago and have been dishing up slices of planet-friendly pizza ever since. 



In the kitchen we have Pietro, the grand wizard and head chef of The Flat team. Pietro trained as a pizza chef in north Italy and loves geeking out about flour and pizza dough with anyone who shares his passion for creating the best pizza. It’s his enthusiasm for updating and tweaking our pizza recipes that means The Flat has such a unique and delicious menu.

Oli has a passion for vegan food so he is our starter and dessert specialist. If the vegan cheesecake tastes too good to be true, that’s down to Oli.

Mike is our longest standing team member and although his full-time pizza slinging days are over he pops in now and then to lend us his skills. Great at fixing things and with a huge amount of historical knowledge, he is currently studying archeology at Exeter Uni. 

Gareth joined our small kitchen team the week before COVID-19 hit. Hilarious and a talented chef to boot, he’s a great addition to The Flat. 

Front of house 

Chloe is our freestyle dance-master and probably the first face you see when you walk through the door. A cosy spirit that will make you feel at home as you dive face-first into pizza. She simply can’t dough enough for you.

Claudia has an abundance of Italian charm, but leave any food on your plate and she won’t be happy! Outside of being our front of house rock she creates beautiful things you can wear! 

Charice has an impressive enthusiasm for pizzas and her insights about flavours and taste combinations help us refine the specials & give us ideas for new ones! She is a brilliant poet, performer and teacher currently completing her MA, so we are super glad she can squeeze in a few shifts with us.

Sian is a legend, you may recognise her from Coffee No.1 and/or The Plant Cafe so she brings the full force of her experience to us. She also runs a theatre company creating heartwarming work for audiences across the country. Another one we are happy can spare a few nights a month to join us for pizza fun.
