London lays claim to some of the top pizza chains in the whole world.
Those who really know their stuff about pizzas (guilty), will know that London happens to be full of wonderful little spots to get your hands on the doughy good stuff. And, handily, that’s now actually been confirmed by a worldwide study on pizza, giving us a guide to the best slices around the globe. London just happens to have four of the top five best artisan pizza chains, according to the excellent Top 50 Pizza worldwide guide. You’ll hear no complaints from us on this one.
Coming in at #5 is the ever-popular Pizza Pilgrims, that holds over a dozen spots in London, going by their famous mantra of “in crust we trust”. You’d be foolish not to take their word.
Next at #4 is the little-known gem that sits in Clapham, known by the name Berberè Pizzeria. It might boast its only UK spot in south London, but since 2010 they have been known as a rising name in the home of pizza. Now holding thirteen locations in Italy, the chain has been given its dues with a top four spot in this list.
Moving to #3 is the scrumptious Big Mamma Group, the brains behind the famed London spots, Gloria and Circolo Popolare. They kicked things of with a Paris location and the rest, as they say, is history.
In these ends, you’ll find Neapolitan pizza made up solely with Italian raw materials to create a fine and bougie pizza loved by many a Londoner, Parisian and most other who walk through their doors around the globe.
Sorbillo took the #2 but unfortunately for us, London hasn’t had the pleasure of trying this Italian favourite… yet. But as the top 50 pizza guides other choices have been golden so far, we’ll take their word for it that this Sorbillo must taste pretty damn great.
However, at the illusive #1 spot is the capital’s pizza favourites, Da Michele, who boast restaurants in both Shoreditch and Baker Street. A monumental spot with over 150 years of history worldwide, beginning its journey in Naples before becoming a force in all of Italy, Da Michele is an essential flagship for the finest of Italian pizza worldwide.
Well, I think that wraps up what I’m having for lunch every day this week, then…
