16 Pizza Slices You Must Try In Bristol

The best pies in B-town.

Posted on

1. The Greenbank / Via

Some may argue that the best thing about The Greenbank is that they have a "takeaway pint" option for when the bar is closing but you still want to get a little tooty at home. Okay so that might be the best thing, but the pizza is a very close second. The Garlic Mushroom ‘za is everything it says on the box – simple, tasty, lots of mushrooms, perfect.

2. The Hen & Chicken / Via

Situated in the heart of Southville, The Hen and Chicken is host to live music, comedy and theatre. Before you go to a show make sure you get there early and tuck into a slice, the aptly named Hangover has served many a sore head after a long night, topped with salami, chorizo and a perfectly cooked egg.

3. Pizza Workshop / Via Instagram: @pizzaworkshop

North Street has had a foodie revolution in the past few years and Pizza Workshop is a welcome addition to the bunch. Serving only ten different pizza options, plus some specials, you know every pizza is cooked to perfection. The number two is a personal favourite with plenty of garlic, capers and anchovies to satisfy, although if you’re extra peckish add some Sicilian Nocellara olives to order – you won’t regret it.

4. Old Market Assembly

Pizza isn’t just pizza at Old Market Assembly, with a commitment to fair trade, ethically sourced and local produce you can guarantee some home-grown deliciousness. With a specialism for vegan and vegetarian fare, try the kale, basil and pumpkin seed pesto on a butternut squash puree base for some guilt-free decadence.


5. Bertha's Pizza

Located on Whapping Wharf relative newcomer Bertha’s has a bold mission statement – to make the best pizza in the world. It’s definitely worth a visit to see if they’ve been successful, try the amazingly named "Nettles?!" for a taste of something different with creamed nettles and chilli. Dock leaves not needed.

6. The Grecian Kebab House / Via

One of Bristol's hidden takeaway gems is The Grecian, open until 5am on the weekends it's the last stop after a hedonistic night out. Unlike a lot of takeaways The Grecian has a wood-burning pizza oven that delivers crisp delicious pizza within a matter of minutes, all for an astounding £5 with free chips, what more could you want at 5am?

7. Acapella

With names like Overture, Encore and C Major, Acapella is definitely a fan favourite. The self-titled Acapella pizza is a treat with a warm base and cold toppings of parma ham, mozzarella and rocket. Handily, Acapella is located about a quarter of the way up the infamously steep Wells Road so you’ll have burnt off the pizza calories before you’ve even eaten.

8. Proven

Proven may be a tiny place but it’s all about huge slices, New York style. Your eyes may be bigger than your stomach but a couple of slices will be sufficient to satisfy a pizza craving. Try a classic margarita on one of their famed lunchtimes deals in their cosy St. Stephens street shop.


9. Grounded

A Bristolian institution with six locations in Bedminster, Brislington, Henleaze, Redfield, Fishponds and Horfield, you can’t go wrong with a Grounded pizza. Lucky Luka’s Fantastic Bombastic with pepperoni, chicken, pancetta and mushrooms is a house favourite.

10. Bocabar

If you work in Paintworks, chances are you spend the majority of your spare time in Bocabar, the best place for a chilled beer and munch. Fishy pizza lovers will love the Praia e Sol with Mediterranean prawns, button mushrooms and garlic oil.

11. Atomic Diner

Brand new kid on the block Atomic Diner on Union Street is the sister restaurant of Atomic Burger located on Gloucester Road. Packing the same comic book shazam in its décor, Atomic Diner is serving up pop-culture pizzas with a punch. The ‘Ziggy Stardust’ is a must; couple it with a thick shake to complete the Americana experience.


13. Zero Degrees / Via Instagram: @zerodegreesbeer

If you’re new to Bristol or showing around out-of-towners, you couldn’t get a better view than the terrace at Zero Degrees microbrewery. Coupled with a local ale and a caramelized pear and gorgonzola slice, it’s the perfect place to get to know the city better.

14. Pi Shop

Gourmet pizza lovers rejoiced when the team behind Michelin-starred restaurant Casmina opened their doors below the fancy apartment block The General, formerly Bristol General Hospital. A mixture of traditional Italian fare is mixed with exotic toppings like pickled cauliflower and Wild English mushrooms, the Wagyu Meat Feast is also a rare treat.

15. Beerd

A craft beer restaurant that also serves local cider is a Bristol must, Beerd gets double points for selling a tasty slice for reasonable prices as well. You can’t go wrong with prosciutto, artichokes, olives and mushrooms, pair it with a pint of Bounders at lunchtime to guarantee you’ll be asleep at your desk at work afterward.

16. Planet Pizza

If you’re looking for a place to have a quiet slice then Planet Pizza at the tail-end of Gloucester Road is your best bet. All the pizzas are named after the nine planets – yes nine, Pluto is still a planet to everyone who matters – the most adventurous is the ‘Mars’ topped with meatballs, cornchips and you don’t even have to pay extra for guac.
