4. Voodoo Ray’s.


New York-style pizza, by the slice. They have a frozen margarita machine, and stay open very late.

You can order by the metre, which should be enough to be appealing. You can practise your Italian on the waiting staff too.

Location: Exmouth Market.

11. Stringray.

@dreamlandcircus on Instagram


Perfectly portioned personal pizzas — with a Gluten Free option. Plus, Monday to Friday, a pizza (or a pasta dish) plus a beer is £8 before 7pm.

Location: Columbia Road, Highbury and Tufnell Park.

12. Fausto Does.


Wood-fired pizza on the go. It’s hard to beat their Marg (right), but you could also try the Salt, with plenty of anchovies.

Location: They have a van, but they’re at the Gunmaker’s in Clerkenwell every Friday.

13. Homeslice.


By the slice, or in a 20 inch slab, Homeslice never fails to deliver. Yum yum yum.

Location: Covent Garden.

14. ICCo.

A family favourite — and great for pizza lovers with kids. Large portions, but they’ll happily box up leftovers.

Location:Finsbury Park.

17. Fundi.


If the words ‘mobile wood fired pizza’ don’t do it for you, then nothing else will.

Location: All over, so keep an eye on their Facebook page.

Follow them on Twitter @FundiPizza

18. Otto.


Pizza made with a cornmeal crust, which means it’s good for wheat-free pizza lovers. They also do specifically wheat-free and gluten-free crusts. Served by the slice, so you can mix and match.

Location: Notting Hill.

Follow them on Twitter @OttoPizzaUK

19. Princi.

@thisispedderltd on Instagram



Grab a slice at the counter, or sit in for a whole pizza. Either way, the end goal is pizza.

Location: Wardour Street.
