London's Best Pizza... Delivered To Your Door

Finding London's best pizzas for delivery. Produced in partnership with Deliveroo.

Straight from the pizza ovens of Sacro Cuore to your door.

Remember in 90s classic The Net, when Sandra Bullock blew our minds with her red-hot tech skills by ordering pizza online? From her home. On a computer. Electronic signals transformed through the alchemy of the internet into a piping-hot 20 inch with extra cheese, right there on your doorstep. 

Well, that beautiful future dreamworld is actually today. And gathered up here are the pizzas we deem most worthy of sharing it with us. From traditional Neapolitans to kimchi-covered mavericks, this is our take on the best pizza London has to offer...  and all of them yours at the touch of a button. 

Rossopomodoro

Pizza chain Rossopomodoro has become relatively widespread, with eight branches across London, at the latest count. But they're still doing Neapolitan pizzas far more interesting and with ingredients far more carefully-sourced than the average. Marvel at the simplicity and genius of the Pomodorosa, with four different sorts of very different tomatoes. Or try the Salsiccia and Friarielli, a white pizza with sausage, broccoli and chilli. 

On top of that they offer a decent range of gluten-free pizzas, and the lesser-spotted wholewheat pizzas: not traditionally Neapolitan but undeniably delicious. The chewiness of the wholewheat dough works really well with the richer topping combinations like the salame piccante and mozzarella.

Vapiano

Despite being good at dishes across the full length of the antipasti-pasta-risotto spectrum, we think the pizzas are where this Italian chain really excels.

The pizza menu ranges from the classic to the surprising, but what they have in common is decadence. For a pizza truly laden with goods try the Carne with chicken breast, chorizo, peppers, onion, ricotta, mozarella, smoked paprika and lemon - all featured in a liberal way on the tomato and mozzarella base.

Sacro Cuore

Sacro Cuore have achieved what London pizzerias rarely manage: becoming destination dining, with pizzas that people cross London for. 

Neapolitan authenticity is the guiding principle of their two North London pizzerias. They use "00" flour in the pizza bases, Italian-imported ingredients and a wood-fired oven reaching such high temperatures that your pizza takes roughly 60 - 90 seconds to cook. Also in authentic Neapolitan style, their pizzas are really good value. Even more so when you realise how unskimping they are with the quality of the toppings. A Diavola pizza elsewhere might be a straight-up cheese, tomato and pepperoni hat-trick. But at Sacro Cuore their take on the Diavola's a hot, nuanced beauty of cured Neapolitan sausage, liberally scattered with Parmesan, fresh chilli, basil and olive oil on the tomato and mozzarella base. 

If you live or work in the Crouch End or Kensal Green areas, the bonus of ordering your Diavola for delivery is you can bypass the queues that often build up at both restaurants, even on weekday evenings. It's a pizza worth queuing for. But isn't it better to be sprawled flat-out on your sofa waiting for the doorbell than standing in line?

Santa Maria

Top notch ingredients and a wood-fired oven powering away at 400 degrees help to make the pizzas at this Chelsea and Ealing duo among the best in London. What’s served here is Neapolitan-style pizza, fluffier than the thinner-based Roman style and with puffed-up crusts that feel like an event in themselves. 

For the ultimate pizza proof that less can be more -- and that perfectly chewy bases and high-quality Italian ingredients should be given room to shine -- try the Santa Bufalina. It's made with tomato, buffalo D.O.C. mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil. Their San Salvatore calzone is far less demure but just as good, folded into a crescent of dough and stuffed with piping hot ricotta, mozzarella, tomato, ham and salami. The calzone brings the ingredients together into a beautiful, messy jumble you wouldn't get from a Santa Maria pizza, where the flavours stay more distinct.

Voodoo Rays

Now you can order Voodoo Rays' pizza -- sold in-restaurant as giant New York-style slices -- as still-pretty-giant 15" pies for delivery. Compared to traditional Neapolitan pizzas with their fluffy crusts and softer centre, these are cooked for a longer time at a lower temperature. The result's a thinner, crispier crust and a firmer base, making for slightly neater eating than the Italian version. Even so, we can confirm your coworkers seeing you covered with forest-green pesto is a known hazard of their Green Velvet pizza.

The Green Velvet's a powerhouse of artichokes, olives, mozzarella and tomato, and possibly 20 of your five-a-day (as long as you eat enough of it). It's just one of the ways vegetarians are spectacularly catered for by Voodoo Rays. We also recommend the version laden with wild mushrooms, butternut squash and a nutty hit of taleggio cheese.

For meat-eaters the King Tubby's a reliable favourite: a heap of fennel and chilli sausage, kale, and sweetness from marinated tomatoes and caramelised onions. And to experience the peak of their lunatic genius there's the Rubenesque -- a twist on the Reuben sandwich, topped with salt beef, two cheeses, sauerkraut, parsley and Russian dressing. Sounds deviant, right? But when you're this good, you can mess with tradition. And gluten-avoiders, you're in good hands. Their greatest hits also come as 10" gluten-free pies.

Four Hundred Rabbits

These casual South London restaurants are serious players in the experimental pizza game. Toppings include seasonal vegetables, and rare breed meats from Cannon & Cannon. Bases are organic and sourdough. They might not bow to traditions, but they don't cut corners. 

And we're into the inventive flavours. Think chorizo with pickled chillis, or rhubarb with chipotle-rolled goats cheese and peppers. Fair enough, these aren't for everybody, but there are always more obvious crowd-pleasers on offer. We've tried several of the standard menu and not found one that doesn't work yet. Their specials are only for the adventurous though - currently including a 'Zoe's Ghana Kitchen' collaboration with jollof-spiced lamb and spiced peanut sauce, and a so-wrong-it-could-maybe-just-be-right pizza with rabbit salami, chorizo, ground beef and ... parmesan. Yeah, all of that. In one place. 

Italians and purists will try to tell you this isn't what happens on a pizza. Ignore them. Treasure the Four Hundred Rabbits pizzas precisely for their enormous off-beatness.

Osteria Basilico

It's all about the classics at this west London Italian. Their Kensington Park Road restaurant opened in 1992, making them a veteran of the London pizza scene. Osteria Basilico is not for the experimental; instead you'll find a short pizza menu with a handful of simple, traditional combinations perfected over the years. 

If you're looking for simplicity try the Bufala, a pared-down pizza with buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and basil. Like a margherita pizza living its best life. For the more decadent, you can't miss the pizza topped with Italian sausage, mushroom and swooped across with truffle oil, (and for double the richness, order the Sicilian ricotta-filled cannoli for dessert).

Princi

You don't survive long among the stiff pizza competition in Milan if you're not making reliably great pizzas: Princi have five Milanese outposts going strong, as testament to their quality. 

London still has just the one, unfortunately. But if you're lucky enough to work or live in a deliverable radius from their Soho restaurant-bakery, you're covered for everything from unfussy pizzas to less common ones. The Burrata's a simple classic of cream-laced mozzarella, datterini tomatoes and basil. The Salsiccia's more unusual, topped with Norcia sausage, turnip tops and fior di latte mozzarella. 

The bases are chewy but firm, balanced between the thin crispness of a Roman-style pizza and the fluffy dough of a Neapolitan. But Roman, Neapolitan or Milanese, these are just seriously good pizzas at reasonable prices, appealing to amateur pepperoni-seekers and purists alike. And despite being a thoroughly Italian enterprise they aren't afraid to go slightly non-trad (the Quattro Formaggi includes Brie among its four cheeses, a French intruder in the usual all-Italian line-up), and we love them for it. When you're this long-established and this popular, you can afford to mix it up.

Amici Miei 2 Go

There are wood-fired ovens at both of the Amici Miei 2 Go menus. So whatever you choose from the impressively long pizza menu will have the characteristically soft dough of Neapolitan pizzas, the crusts puffed-up and light, slightly blistered from the heat. We're seriously into the Completa, which comes with three sorts of cheese, hot salami and double tomato. And the vegetarian options like the truffle oil Tartufo have been known to draw in even dedicated carnivores. 

These guys offer lunchtime delivery as well as evening, meaning if you're lucky enough to work near the locations they cover this could be your staff bonding-time lunch... A forewarning, though: the Sfiziosa is a three-meat and cheese-heaped behemoth. You will want a lie-down after one of these.

Joe Public

Joe Public hasn't been open long, but they've quickly established their sourdough bases among south London's best. They deliver 'California-style' pizza -- it turns out that means a heftier swathe of toppings piled up on a thin, crunchy-edged base, so we're all for it.

The quality of the ingredients means even their simpler, more traditional pizzas are anything but dull. We'd recommend exploring their less common combinations, though. Try one of their 14" bases loaded up with chorizo, goats cheese, jalapenos and sriracha sauce. No hangover can survive that hit of meat, cheese and heat.

Crust Bros

These Camberwell pizzaiolos describe their food as 'Neapolitan with a twist', mixing traditional bases and Italian-imported ingredients with British slants.

There's a lot of swagger at work in their short menu of great pizza. You can see it in the richness of the ingredients — double cream crops up repeatedly, as does fiery, fatty 'nduja sausage — and in the unapologetically good-bad puns. We refer you to the Notorious P.I.G. topped with ham and mushrooms, and the Kaling Me Softly with kale, onion, cheddar and chillis. Our favourite, though, is the pun-free Cheeky Bro pizza, topped with double guanciale (pigs' cheek) and spring onion.

Order roughly 1.5 times as much pizza as you think you need. Not because it's not filling, (Jeez, is it filling), but because it's so incredibly good cold the next morning.
