Voodoo Ray’s creates thin and crispy NY-style pizza, which comes by the slice or as a whole 22-inch whopper – you can’t go wrong with The Meat Is On or the Giorgio Moroder – and they do an after-midnight spesh at the Dalston branch, which is open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays, for when the munchies strike. Wash down one of the massive slices with a signature frozen marg.

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 £15 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).


22-25 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 3RY

Sourdough bases, charcoal crusts, massive 20″ pies…there’s a lot of pizza in London but no one’s really been doing the deep-dish thing. Until now that is. Japes is all about that Chicago-style pizza, which means high crusts and lots of filling. The deep-dish, which comes in personal and sharing sizes (and believe us a personal one is more than enough), comes with a thick layer of cheese on the bottom of the crust, with the toppings and sauce on top. You will have to knife-and-fork it as they are generous when it comes to filling these babies. Japes also does the even less well-known pot-pie pizzas. As you may be able to guess from the name, these are baked in a pot like a pie and turned out before eating, so the cheese is on top, encasing all the filling underneath – we rate the Green Queen because it’s jam-packed with veggies (so it’s healthy, right?)


Zia Lucia, Holloway Road, London

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.

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 include everything from fresh fig, gorgonzola, prosciutto and pine nuts to tender roasted lamb, purple potato, feta and black olives.


Radio Alice Pizzeria, Hoxton Square, London

Named after an Italian pirate radio station from the 1970s, Radio Alice is as cool as it sounds. They do things a little bit differently here, using mother yeast and ancient stone-ground flour to make their bases crispy on the outside and soft inside. Making the most of the flavours they also cook the base first, then cut into eight and add the toppings. That means no fighting for the best slice!

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 are no tough crusts to be found here. With half-price pizzas on Mondays and wild specials every month (chocolate pizza anyone?), there’s plenty of reason to make the journey down to Peckham.


Sodo Pizza Walthamstow, Hatherley Mews, London

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).


Franco Manca Brixton, Market Row, London

Franco Manca do pizza the Neapolitan way. Using slow-rising sourdough (which takes a minimum of 20 hours to rise), they bake their pizzas in double quick time to create those soft, tasty crusts. They always use seasonal ingredients too to make sure the toppings are as bangin’ as the bases. It’s not hard to find a pizza in London for under £10, but at Franco Manca the whole pizza menu costs less than a tenner and they’re damn fine – the tomato, chorizo, and mozzarella is our fave! With cheap beers, it’s the perfect spot to hang out with some mates and it definitely won’t break the bank.


CRATE Brewery & Pizzeria, Queen's Yard, London

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.


143 Evelina Road, London

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, goat’s 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?!
