You can never go wrong with pizza, it’s the food of happiness after all. So, whether you are a fan of the classic margherita or someone who likes their pie without tomato sauce, we are confident you will find the perfect slice at one these restaurants. These are our Tipps Top Ten.
Franco Manca – Brixton
The pizza from Franco Manca is made in the traditional Neapolitan style and has impeccably well-sourced toppings. The highlight is the base which is the perfect combo of crispiness and chewiness, and has a distinct sour taste. Despite the high-quality, pizzas here are incredibly affordable and will not set you back much. Franco Manco now has over seventeen branches but their original Brixton branch is still one of the best.
Homeslice – Covent Garden
This joint in Neal’s Yard serves up pizzas that you can devour whole or by the slice. The whole pizzas are a whopping 20 inches, so we recommend you share with a buddy or two. The toppings are truly original and range from aubergine, cauliflower cheese, spinach and harissa to spiced lamb with savoy cabbage and sumac yoghurt. If can’t choose between the options you can always split two flavours across one pizza.
Pizza East – Shoreditch
Brought to us by Soho House Group, Pizza East has the subtle chicness you would expect from this glam brand. The sour-dough based pizzas comes laden with full-flavoured toppings like the black truffle with taleggio, mozzarella and cream or spicy sausage with mozzarella, broccoli and cream. Simple and honest, these pizzas are sure to satisfy!
Pizza Union – King’s Cross
Pizza Union’s fire-baked Roman-style pizzas are speedily created with a super thin and crispy base. You can find all the classics here with the freshest ingredients, but they also have the bianca, for those who are opposed to tomato sauce. Leave room for their dessert that offers a delicious pizza ring stuffed with Nutella and marscapone.
Pizza Pilgrims – Soho
Originally starting off as street food traders, Pizza Pilgrim has come a long way thanks to its loyal following. The Neapolitan-style pizzas are soft and chewy with a thick crust, and comes layered with an array of delicious toppings. The ’Nduja is a popular choice and comes with a spicy Calabrian pork sausage. Dessert includes the indulgent pizza ring oozing with Nutella and salted ricotta.
La Vera – Birmingham
This quality operation offers freshly made pizza that are value for money. Their huge wood-fire pizza oven ensures that all pizza bases are charred to perfection but easily digestible, making for a tasty bite. The house speciality is a Calzone Nutella dessert pizza which is absolutely delectable.
Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza – Manchester
Sticking to the traditional Neapolitan-style pizza, these pies are high-end Italian. The menu consists of homemade pizzas which are either tomato or ‘white’ (without tomato sauce) based, and are generously sized. If you are looking for a classic go for the salami pizza, otherwise we recommend the Ancozze which is a white pizza that comes topped with Tuscan sausage, wild broccoli, chilli flakes and smoked mozzarella.
Paesano – Glasgow
This buzzing Italian eatery serves up their wood-fired sourdough pizzas, with an aromatic and puffy crust and light base. Their concise menu of pizzas are all topped with authentic imported Italian ingredients and their homemade tomato sauce, which is incredibly flavoursome. There’s something for everyone here as they also have vegan options.
Amalia – Liverpool
This Italian restaurant was awarded with England’s best pizza at the Italian Awards back in 2016 and for good reason. They have over fifteen options on their menu including all the classics, but they also have some more adventurous options such as the Sfiziosa which has blue cheese and anchovies.
Dough Boys – Leeds
Dough Boys adventurous pizza creations are served by the slice. Their ingredients are well-sourced and their sauce is made from San Marzano tomatoes creating a delicious and yet slightly tangy sauce. The menu changes daily, but there are usually at least six options available some of which cater to vegans.
