The teenage mutant ninja turtles used to eat them in the underground, so what's stopping you from munching them on the streets? One of the flagship products of the food truck craze, the pizza remains one of the best reasons to track down your local street food venue. Below are our favourites.

Al Taglio

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

One of the first outfits in Paris to sell pizza by weight, now a popular practice, Al Taglio is an understated canteen with chic overtones; big wooden high tables are scattered throughout the venue, lit by metallic lamps. Its popularity extends beyond the neighbourhood, so be prepared to queue, and enjoy the show while you do – the constant bustle and to-ing and fro-ing of hurried waiters delivering pizzas at lighting speed. When your turn comes to choose, it's a struggle to choose between things like pizza topped pancetta and Brebis cheese, or spicy salami and artichoke, or the delicious house speciality with truffle cream...

Camion à pizzas du Centquatre

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 1/4

It’s not everyday you come across a pizza van in central Paris, and especially not one like Le Camion à Pizzas in the 104 (rue d’Aubervilliers) arts centre: Its shiny black, retro-futurist bodywork looks like something from ‘pimp my ride’ and blends in perfectly with the wacky art installations on display all around – food for your eyes while you wait for your pizza to crisp in the oven. As for the pizzas, the bases are just the right thickness and the toppings (think marinated aubergines, smoked salmon cooked with onions, crunchy roquette and Parma ham) fresh and flavoursome. Service is with a smile too...

Green Pizz

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4

Don’t make the mistake of confusing Green Pizz with a pizzeria: there’s nothing Italian about the menu here. Made from fresh, organic and mostly French ingredients, the ‘pizz’ is a fast food invention that only vaguely references an actual pizza.Toppings on the slender oval bases replace the classic margarita with things like Pissaladière, Rasta Roquette and Tante Marguerite. There’s little in the way of mozzarella and ham on the wholemeal flour dough, but rather Savoie tomme cheese, smoked duck or grilled aubergine. Priced between €11-€15, it’s a bobo undertaking with all the additive-free guarantees of quality...
