Pizza has to be one of life’s greatest pleasures. End of. But a crisp dough, melted cheese and tonnes of toppings can turn out to be a little heavy on the purse strings at times. Here’s a very tempting list of some of the best pizza joints in town (and no, your overpriced Dominoes Meateor didn’t make the cut).
This little haunt in Fitzrovia is home to some of the cheapest and best pizzas in London! Expect to be shocked by a menu that boasts loads of options for only a fiver and nothing going over the £7 mark. These fresh (and amazingly quickly made) pizzas are thin, delicious and oh so moreish.
