Franco Manca

Market Row, Electric Ln, SW9 8LD

A real gem, partly due to the woodfire oven shipped all the way from Naples, partly due to the pizzas themselves – crisp bases covered with generous toppings – and partly to the price, most about £6.

Donna Margherita

Lavender Hill, SW11 5TE

Pizzas are the stars of the menu at this unpretentious Italian restaurant. Try the oozing folded friarelli, similar to a calzone but better.

Pizza East

Shoreditch High St, E1 6JJ A modern take on the traditional pizzeria, and you’d expect nothing less than perfection from the owner of Soho House. Gourmet choice: duck, artichoke and truffle cheese.
