YARD SALE PIZZA

105 Lower Clapton Road, E5 0NP
Hackney Downs Hackney Downs

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
Tottenham Court Road

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.

ZIA LUCIA

Zia Lucia, Holloway Road, London, UK
Holloway Road

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.

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.
