PIZZA

Looking for the best pizza in London? We’ve rounded up the absolute best pizza restaurants in London so you can be sure to find the perfect slice.

Best Pizza in London Highlights

A Yard Sale Pizza is kneaded in everyone’s life. Leaving their dough to prove for 24 hours and cooking out their tomato sauce on the pizza to deepen the flavour, they definitely aren’t ones for cutting corners. From the regulars to the guest pizzas, whether you’re holy over your pepperoni or all over the squash, Yard Sale is where to get a pizz’a the action.

Once just a pizza van and now a little cult, Pizza Pilgrims has got some loyal followers and it’s for a damn good reason. Knocking out traditional Neapolitan pizza, their classic marg and nduja take some beating, but remember to leave room for dessert cos THAT Nutella & salted ricotta pizza ring is the bomb.

With a pizza oven made out of sand and dust from Mount Vesuvius, Santa Maria is defo a cut above the rest. The slightly chewy dough and THAT sauce made with San Marzano D.O.P tomatoes pre-ordered a year in advance make these pizzas what they are…bloody great.

Homeslice serve up some of the biggest pizzas in town, we’re talking 20-inch beasts, but it’s not all about the size here. The pizzas come with some interesting toppings and if you can’t decide you can always go 50/50. Our faves include that chorizo, corn & corriander and aubergine, cauliflower cheese, spinach & harissa.

Pizza East serves up wood oven pizzas and antipasti, with daily-changing specials to keep you on your toes. Whilst they’ve now expanded to three locations across London, it’s the original Shoreditch restaurant that will always be our fave. Based in a former tea warehouse, the Shoreditch joint sells meats and cheeses in its own deli, and hosts club nights in an underground events space.

YARD SALE PIZZA

££
105 Lower Clapton Road, E5 0NP

A Yard Sale Pizza is kneaded in everyone’s life. After kicking things off with Macaulay Culkin doing a set at their opening, Yard Sale set the standards high. But leaving their dough to prove for 24 hours and cooking out their tomato sauce on the pizza to deepen the flavour, they definitely aren’t ones for cutting corners. Whether you wanna dine-in or take-out these handmade beauties are available as 18-inch sharers or 12-inch pizzas and can be found in Leytonstone, Finsbury Park, Walthamstow and Clapton. From the regulars to the guest pizzas, whether you’re holy over your pepperoni or all over the squash, Yard Sale is where to get a pizz’a the action.

PIZZA PILGRIMS

11 Dean St, London W1D 3RP, UK

Once just a pizza van and now a little cult, Pizza Pilgrims has got some loyal followers and it’s for a damn good reason. Knocking out traditional Neapolitan pizza, their classic marg and nduja take some beating, but remember to leave room for dessert cos THAT Nutella & salted ricotta pizza ring is the bomb.

THEO'S

2 Grove Ln, Camberwell, London SE5 8SY, UK

This south London sourdough star began life in Camberwell and became so popular, the team soon added a second site just down the road in Elephant and Castle. Neapolitan is the house style here, beginning with the classic marinara and margherita, and moving on to some more adventurous creations such as mushroom, leek, and gorgonzola as well as our favourite, the Camberwell scotch bonnet nduja which is HOT. Add Italian wines and cocktails and a relaxed, friendly south London vibe and you’ve got yourself a winning pizza joint.

SODO PIZZA

Sodo Pizza Walthamstow, Hatherley Mews, London, UK

Healthy sourdough pizza is the name of the game at Sodo. On the weekends, check out their Walthamstow spot for brunch-themed pizzas (expect eggs and mushrooms aplenty).

400 RABBITS

143 Evelina Road, London, UK

400 Rabbits has burrowed all the way from Crystal Palace through to Nunhead to bring you some of the best sourdough pizza in London town. Not much beats their rhubarb, chipotle chilli, goats cheese and piquillo peppers masterpiece, but to be honest we’d take a slice of any of them. And with them all give you change from a tenner, why the hell not?!

ZIA LUCIA

Zia Lucia, Holloway Road, London, UK

Zia Lucia has not one, not two but FOUR different types of dough to choose from, making them a great choice for those who are gluten free or anyone that just likes to be different. As well as the classic pizza base there’s wholemeal, gluten free, and their signature item, the vegetable charcoal base which is a dusty black colour all the way through. It certainly adds a little extra flavour to the dough but whichever base you choose, you can expect classic Italian toppings such as n’duja, pepperoni, buratta, and – our favourite – the ‘Andrea Pirlo’ topped with Mozzarella, gorgonzola, apple, truffle and olive sauce. A classy pizza named after a classy guy.

The original Holloway Road Zia Lucia opened in 2016 and now there’s branches in Hammersmith and Boxpark Wembley (opening December 2018) so it’s clear they’ve gained a lot of fans along the way.

VOODOO RAY'S

The Stables Market، Chalk Farm Road, London, UK

Voodoo Ray’s create thin and crispy NY-style pizza, which come by the slice or as a whole 22inch whopper, and they do an after midnight spesh for when the munchies strike. Wash down one of the massive slices with a signature frozen marg.

SANTA MARIA

92-94 Waterford Road, London, UK

With a pizza oven made out of sand and dust from Mount Vesuvius, Santa Maria is defo a cut above the rest. The slightly chewy dough and THAT sauce made with San Marzano D.O.P tomatoes pre-ordered a year in advance make these pizzas what they are…bloody great.

CRATE

CRATE Brewery & Pizzeria, Queen's Yard, London, UK

A brewery and bar that serves up pizzas is our kinda place. Knock back a Crate IPA with one of their Middle Eastern lamb pizzas and enjoy the canalside views with the Olympic Stadium in the background.

PIZZA EAST

56a Shoreditch High Street, London, UK

Pizza East serves up wood oven pizzas and antipasti, with daily-changing specials to keep you on your toes. Whilst they’ve now expanded to three locations across London, it’s the original Shoreditch restaurant that will always be our fave. Based in a former tea warehouse, the Shoreditch joint sells meats and cheeses in its own deli, and hosts club nights in an underground events space.

MADE OF DOUGH

MADE OF DOUGH, Bellenden Road, London, UK

If you’re venturing south of the river, Made of Dough is the place to go. Sourcing their ingredients from across Europe, each pizza is cooked on a real wood fire to create a chewy base – there’s no tough crusts to be found here. With half price pizzas on Mondays and wild specials every month (a chocolate pizza anyone?), there’s plenty of reason to make the journey down to Peckham.

HAPPY FACE

14 Handyside St, Kings Cross, London N1C 4DN, UK

If you’re looking for pizza in King’s Cross, there’s only one place you need to go to and that’s Happy Face. Opened by the team behind Spiritland – yes that does mean the soundtrack is on point, even the toilets have some fancy speakers – Happy Face is a modern take on the classic pizzeria. Decked out in millennial pink and teal, it’s a fun, relaxed restaurant to be in and that’s before you even get to the food. The menu is pleasingly tight, just a handful of starters (definitely get the courgette fritti) and desserts, with nine classic pizzas like funghi, melanzana and pepperoni on offer. They use a 72-hour fermented dough here and it does result in a lighter crust, and there’s chilli oil on the table as standard for all your crust dipping needs. The most expensive pizza comes in at £12 but the majority are a tenner or under. Considering the size and quality, it’s a right bargain, and they’re speedy with the service too. Not only is Happy Face right next to the Everyman (so you can catch a film before dinner), it’s got the retro late-night cocktail bar Supermax in the basement (so you can keep your night going long after the pizzas have been eaten).

DEATH BY PIZZA

Netil Market, 13 - 23 Westgate Street, London E8 3RL, UK

Vegan pizza can be a tricky one to crack – it’s the cheese that always causes the problems, and a pizza without cheese just ain’t a pizza – but Death By Pizza have done it. Founded by the same team behind Young Vegans, the pizzeria in Netil Market slings out vegan pizzas so good that even the most committed carnivores wouldn’t be able to resist. Both the vegan mozzarella and ricotta are decent, their seitan ham on the Filthy Weekend tastes so good it could pass for meat and they’ve got all that on a bloody good crust too.

PIZZERIA APOLLO

Pizzeria Apollo, Stoke Newington High Street, London, UK

Creating pizzas in the traditional Neapolitan style, Apollo Pizzeria has brought a little slice of Italy to Stokey. With plenty of veggie and vegan options on the menu, there’s something for everyone to take a bite of here.

JOE PUBLIC

Joe Public, The Pavement, London, UK

Joe Public may operate out of an old lav, but expect more than just your bog standard pizza. Creating whopping 20inch Californian style pizzas – served either whole or by the slice – Joe Public’s toppings including everything from fresh fig, gorgonzola, prosciutto and pine nuts to tender roasted lamb, purple potato, feta and black olives.

ROMA PIZZA

224 Brick Ln, London E1 6SA, UK

Roma Pizza, the latest concept from the Made of Dough team, is slinging out super thin crust, Roman-style pizzas and they cost just a FIVER. Yep, every single one of the 12″ pizzas on the menu (which are all made with organic dough and organic tomatoes) whether its a plain Marg, a Hot Pepperoni, a Mushroom & Truffle, or a vegan pizza, is five quid. And they don’t skimp on the toppings or the cheese either, which is how we like it. Cocktails cost a fiver too, house wine is £3 and house draft beers for £2.25, so it’s real bang for your buck.

CRAZY PIZZA

7 Paddington Street, London W1U 5QH, UK

Crazy Pizza in Marylebone prides itself on providing high quality Italian food and even makes its mozzarella on site. All the pizzas here have a thin, crispy crust and a light base (no heavy dough here) meaning you can leave satisfied but not mega bloated. It also means you can save room for the Crazy Cake, which was a calorific mix of crossaints, mascarpone cream cheese and loads of Nutella. Although it’s not the cheapest pizza in town, it’s worth a go if you’re looking to celebrate – or you just want to check out the “world champion dough spinning” chefs
