If I had to choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life and it would definitely be pizza. It’s a carb-tastic dinner that can be enjoyed at a fancy restaurant with a glass of vino or can be consumed at home in the comfort of your PJs – either way, utterly delicious. Here are the best places to go in London for a slice of the good stuff.
This currently stands as my fave pizza in London Town! We ate pizza pilgrims at Swingers (crazy golf), but there are restaurants and pop-ups all over London. The bases are thin and tasty but with a fluffy stone-baked crust. Basically heaven on a plate (well, they actually get served in takeaway boxes, but still…).
I’d recommend going here just for the Instagram photo alone – the pizzas are hugeeeee! Case in point, see the image above. They suggest that you get one between two people – and the best part is that you can even mix and match toppings so that both of you can have exactly what you want.
Luckily for me, there’s a branch just around the corner from my flat, in Westfield, although I have to admit that I’ve also dined at the Covent Garden one. Yes, it really is good enough to warrant multiple visits! It’s a no-thrills pizza place with really affordable prices, so as long as you don’t mind drinking your wine out of a tumbler, then you’ll do just fine.
If you want to go out, out for pizza then this is the place to go. It’s a bit more of a grown-up vibe ideal for a few glasses of wine and a pizza binge. I visited the one in Covent Garden and it has a lovely atmosphere in the evening. Plus, you’re surrounded by bars if you fancy heading somewhere afterwards.
A few of my pals live near Peckham, so on a Friday evening, before we headed to the iconic venues of Franks and Peckham Levels, we headed here for a bite to eat, One of my friends is celiac, and the staff were really accommodating with gluten-free options and the pizza was hella tasty!
Still on the pizza wish list:
I hope this blog post has grabbed a pizza your heart… (sorry, I couldn’t resist)
