Homeslice, Neal's Yard

It’s not how big it is: it’s what you do with it. Take this new joint in Neal’s Yard’s, which is serving pizzas that wouldn’t be out of place on ‘Man v. Food’.

Served fresh from the wood-fired oven, most of these thin crusts are available by the slice (£4). Or, you can order a whole 20-incher (£20), which is enough to feed you and two of your pals. They’ll even let you have more than one choice of the topping selections if you ask nicely.

A well-put-together margherita can be a little slice of heaven, as can other classic pizzas. But if it’s done right (no chicken, no sweet chilli sauce, no pineapple etc), a bit of innovation doesn’t go amiss. And here they have a couple of ingredient combos that wouldn’t get the green light in Naples, but taste pretty good.

On one, slivers of bone marrow are melted over the tomato base, imparting a meaty savouriness. Scattered with watercress and roasted whole spring onions, the pizza was oozy and delicious with a chewy cornicione (crust). A white anchovy, chard and Doddington cheese pizza also had a good balance; finished with a twist of orange zest it was filled with sweet, bitter and salty notes.

Service was impeccably attentive and chummy, and there are craft beers and even prosecco on draught. The pizzas here are certainly good quality, but it’s hard to achieve a crisp, puffy base when you’re turning out cartwheels. Maybe they should just stop worrying about size…

From the streets to a rustic restaurant on Neal's Yard…if you want a gigantic wood-fired pizza with semi-unusual, but insanely good topping combos like goat shoulder, savoy cabbage & sumac yoghurt, then get straight to Homeslice! The 20" pizzas for £20, can feed 2 people to the brim and you can go half and half on the toppings. The pizza dough is thin and slightly crispy with a good ratio of toppings, so you won't leave with the usual bloated feeling pizza can bring. I would definitely recommend this over the likes of Franco Manca and Pizza Pilgrims, who I have found to have either rather chewy or soggy dough bases- not ideal!

Homeslice is by the far the greatest pizza in London. The dough is so refreshingly light that sharing a 20" is in no way as much of an accomplishment as you initially anticipate. What's even better is that, if your fellow diner has strange taste in pizza toppings, you're allowed to opt for two topping combinations for both halves - and because you're still sharing the same plate, you're still 100% allowed to eat their abandoned crusts. Whilst you're there don't forget to order some of the pay what you drink wine, where you are served an entire magnum of wine, and where the damage is gauged at the end with a wooden ruler!

Best pizza I have ever had, hands down. If you haven't had a pizza here yet, you must. I can't believe that Time Out have only given this a 3*, although that was written in 2013 so perhaps they should pay Homeslice another visit. When it comes to pizza I am very fussy, I don't have pizza very often so when I do I want it to be great! Homeslice never disappoints. The service is great and the food is delirious. I have tried a few of the different toppings and have liked all of them. Even the margherita is so tasty, no extra toppings needed. 

Pay this place a visit, it's worth it :)

Very good pizza to share in a corner of Neal Yard. A bit on the fat side in terms of taste which makes it less of a regular for me than it would otherwise be.

First had this the morning after the Christmas party (much-needed) and absolutely loved it. Would definitely be my first choice for pizza in the area, especially considering the value for money!

If you love New York style pizza (think thin, big and floppy!) this is your place! Unbelievably tasty pizza in a super chilled environment. No booking but the team are happy to give you a call on your mobile when your table is ready.

Highly recommend doing for a whole pizza between 3 people and definitely get the half and half so you can try more of the amazing original flavours!

Yasmin B

Great location, but be prepared to wait - they turn the tables as fast as possible but there is always a queue. Staff are very cool & friendly. The pizza here is GREAT. 20'' for £20, you can't argue with that. Really interesting flavours aswell, plus, you can order half half so you can try a couple! I recommend the chorizo and corn & coriander - it's the perfect combination of strong and mild flavours. A fab place to grab a fun lunch with friends when in the area.

Who doesn’t like pizza? If you’ve got a serious appetite and love pizza like me, then you’ll enjoy Homeslice.

What marks Homeslice from all pizzerias is the size of their pizzas. It’s gloriously humungous at 20-inch pizza, large enough to satisfy the hungriest of bellies. Certainly wouldn’t look out of place in an episode of Man vs. Food. 

One pizza 20-inch pizza is enough to feed you and your pals so don’t go and order a pizza for each person. Big mistake if you do. Fret not if your stomach baulks at the size. You can order a pizza by the slice. 

The pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven which I’ve once been told helps make better pizzas by giving the crust a crispy edge and a chewy base. I can confirm it is although let me know if this because of the wood oven or not.

What I particularly loved about Homeslice (besides the size), are the toppings. Aside from the familiar toppings such as chorizo, corn and coriander,  there are options available which I’ve not seen before. I don’t think I’ve seen a butternut pumpkin with broccolini, pecorino and crispy onions on a pizza before. Not feeling particularly adventurous, I went for the anchovy with caramelised onions. The sweetness of the onions was the perfect antidote to the saltiness of the anchovy. 

Service was lovely and you can wash your pizza down with craft beer or even prosecco. Can't decide what toppings to have? Why not pick two! The pizzas are so big, you can have two different toppings on the same pizza.

Located in colourful Neal’s Yard close to the shopping district of Seven Dials, Homeslice Pizza is a small place so book a table if you can otherwise you may have to wait. Trust me when I say come hungry. It’s the biggest pizza I've ever seen in London. Definitely, the right place you’re hungry and craving pizza.

OH.EM.GEE. Homeslice is the bees knees of the pizza world. For the love of pizza, you need to go and visit this place. Be prepared to wait, it is massively popular and they don't take bookings for small tables so go ahead early, get your name on the list and then mooch around Covent Garden. They also do pizza by the slice (and by slice I mean the size of my face) if you want to grab and go.

They have a no fuss menu with 5/6 options and you can either do a pizza with one topping or go half and half. Their toppings are unusual so I like to push the boat out and go for half and half so you can try two at once! They stretch the dough out really thin so you can eat more than you think (honestly, I thought I would have one slice and I'd be full but my friend and I managed half each). They also have prosecco on tap...PROSECCO ON TAP- why go anywhere else?

Lily C

Ridiculously huge pizza for pretty good prices. The topping selections are really tasty too and a bit unusual.
Highly recomend it here although you have to queue as they don't take bookings and can be quite popular most evenings!
I have also ordered takeaway from here so do bear that in mind if you can't be bothered to wait and you've got somewhere to go and sit!

Best pizza in London...Really! Located in Covent Garden, Homeslice is a cute, warm restaurant with great atmosphere. It's all about pizza in here, it's the only thing they serve. The pizza is big enough to fill two people (and some might be left for take away). They typically offer 8-9 different pizzas with very interesting toppings. Don't miss their house red wine. It's strong and full of flavour. 

Olivia B

Quick and friendly service... and the most delicious pizza bigger than I have ever seen... even my boyfriend struggled to finish!

Daisy H

Ridiculously good pizza. Massive portions, flavorsome toppings, great atmosphere and all reasonably priced. The whole pizzas are absolutely giant, and more than enough to feed you and and a few friends. Service is quick and you don't have to wait around long, but often there are queues out the door and it can take a while to be seated. So worth the wait though, best pizza in Central London

Ok let's talk about the good stuff first. Mainly i'm thinking of the incredible pizzas. You can't so much as walk past homeslice and not want to eat pretty much everything on the menu. The toppings are inventive yet classic, the dough is chewy and soft and did I mention they are absolutely huge?!

Homeslice serves up gigantic pizza's that make for a family dinner sharing atmosphere - sharing is caring here and you can order as many different toppings as you like. 

The service is a little hit and miss. Hit - they didn't have a table for us so they took my number and we went off for a lovely glass of wine at the wine bar next door before being called over to enjoy our pizza. So nice not to have to queue out in the cold. 

Miss: When we sat down we ordered a bottle of wine only to be told that they serve only one white wine and one red wine. That's fine and the restaurants prerogative but feels a little limited. However we were also told that the wine would be served in these huge magnums and they would measure where we drunk up to and we'd pay for that. This is both dangerous for your liver (if you're anything like us you might nearly finish a whole magnum) and your wallet, so keep an eye on it. 

This still would have been ok were it not for the fact that the wine turned up warm. When we asked for some ice we were told there wasn't any on the premises which seemed a bit weird. We also had to have a borderline awkward argument with the waitress as she refused to swap it for another bottle as we'd poured one glass out of the magnum. 

I also, and maybe this is unfair, but I also got the distinct impression that if the magnums aren't finished by one table they are simply topped up for the next table instead of being fresh which makes me feel a bit icky. 

So go but maybe stick to soft drinks or beer!

If there is a better pizza in London I will eat my 20 inch hat.... Great flavours cool atmosphere,  we found Homeslice thanks to google and went on a whim,  we will not be looking for any other pizza place in London....

Honest fun pizza and just love the way they serve the wine ;-)

Joana F

I really love this place! ❤️ For the staff and specially the food... Those pizzas sure are amazing! Big Kiss for everyone there! x

Rachel B

Pizza bigger than your head and prosecco! A great place to go and share a slice or two with friends.

Luke A

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Did I say fabulous? GO NOW and have the aubergine, cauliflower cheese, spinach and harissa pizza. You guessed it, fabulous! 


We stumbled across this place after a very busy day of walking around covent garden. It was such a lucky find. Fresh,stone baked pizza and they are massive! We bought two slices each and it was perfect for an afternoon munch. I definitely think we could of tackled one of their full pizza's but it's great to have the option. A cool restaurant,good service and yummy flavours- I had the mushroom,sunflower seed and balsamic pizza,really nice. 


Fantastic vibe, pizza and beer! love the little quarter it is in too.

Sarah R

Yum-oh-yum! You’d think that at some point you’d stop being impressed by pizza, because really, how many different variations of pizza can there be? Well not this one. I don’t know what’s the trick, but it seems to contain some magical ingredient that make it stand out. Mushroom one is to die for, even my mum was impressed by it, and she is usually the one that avoids the carbs. I came here for a quick food fix and grabbed two slices of pizza because the line for the table seemed a bit too long, but definitely taking more time next time, seat down and enjoy full pizza in all its glory.


Size matters. Homeslice serve up a 20" pizza for £20, enough to fill up two people to the brim. The Covent Garden branch had a bit of a wait but we popped off for a drink for an hour, and the staff called us when a table became available. After that the service is quick, and the pizza freshly made and delicious. You can half-and-half the toppings and order more if you aren't full. Great pizza in the quirky surroundings of Neal's Yard - perfect to treat a non-Londoner friend.

This is a gem within the gem of Neal's Yard, bookings are not possible so expect to wait a little while, it's worth it. Once inside, if you look around and judge the 20" to be too much for you and your pizza buddy, think again. Something in the base even makes you want to eat it right to the edge. The toppings are well curated with lovely fresh produce, and the drinks are simple (one choice of either white/red wine or beer) to keep the focus where it should be, on the delicious food. I only work around the corner and this is one of the best eateries I have ever found in Covent Garden.


20 inches of oozing goodness is what you can find in this cosy pizza joint in Neal's Yard. The pizzas are huge and you can pick your toppings and even make them half-and-half. I went for the rocket and parmesan and my husband went for the chorizo and corn on his half. Ashamed to say that we finished the whole thing. :) 

Corina B

Absolutely amazing pizza! I had one slice and was left completley satisfied. The topping were different from the traditional and although some seemed unexpected, one I tried them I was very pleasantly surprised. The star was very friendly and it has a very relaxed environment. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it.


When it comes to pizza, I'm picky and will normally give preference to stir-fry or curry, just to be safe. Make the crust too thick, and I won't eat it. Put too much meat of ketchup on top and I'll politely order a salad. When a friend invited me to Homeslice because his colleague told him they do the best pizza in London I was sceptical and decided to give it a try only after seeing (and feeling) the warm glow from a large stove at the heart of their kitchen. The fact that we pretty much finished a 20inch pizza between the two of us (it can easily feed 3-4 people) says it all. Think of Homeslice as Monmouth of pizza (it's right near the famous coffee place too!) - it does one thing only, but it gets it right 100%

Homeslice is a pretty chilled and homely pizza place tucked neatly into colorful Neal's Yard in Covent Garden. Great big windows catch a nice breeze and sun (when there's any of that) and the wood-fires make for such a tantalizing wait. 

The pizzas come in giant size - and you know how sometimes you worry that if you go bigger the taste won't be there? Yeah, definitely not the case. Amazing flavor and topping combos sit on deliciously baked, crisp-and-yet-fluffy, pizza breads. 

Now that I've written this I'm really craving it..

Alanna S

I thought nothing could beat my love of Voodoo Ray's but Homeslice gives it a good shot. The pizzas are delicious - all with different flavoursome bases rather than your usual tomato and cheese. We had 1/2 goats shoulder and 1/2 veggie one and they were both fantastic and portions ginormous. Even with the thin dough, you'll be full! The measurable carafe of wine was an interesting way of drinking, but worked out reasonably. Definitely one I will be back to a bunch more times. I've seen they do a bottomless brunch on Sunday's sometimes which looks like a decent (delicious) deal.

Tip top pizza in Neal's Yard! Homeslice could be quite gimmicky with the sheer size of the pizzas on offer, but what's nice is that they can back it up with the flavours. We went recently for lunch and shared 2 of the pizzas - one vegetarian and one salami, both of which were sublime. I'll be heading back very, very soon!

Ed. T

One of the best pizza venues in London, hands down. Beats in my opinion Franco Manca and Pizza Pilgrim for having some of the best tasting dough and toppings you can get. 

Go by the slice, but for me, getting the 20 inch with 2 toppings is the best. Even flavours which sound like they're weird end up being strangely addictive, and their classic toppings don't fail to impress. 

Pizza this good always leads to some serious queues, but the service team are happy to give you a text or call when your table is ready - which gives you a chance to head to a nearby bar for a quick drink!

The pizza at Homeslice is so good that I forgot to take a picture (sorry!). We didn't get to eat right away but they take down your number and call when your table is ready (ours was a 45 min wait) which means you don't have to hang around waiting. The 20" pizzas are £20 each and are probably best to share between 2. The different toppings are creative and unique but they do have a few less adventurous ones for the not-so-brave! My favourite was the goat good! The only annoying thing is that there is a separate menu for slices so you can't get one slice of something that's on the 20" pizza menu. There was a little problem in that they forgot our order so we ended up waiting quite a while but they were extremely apologetic and knocked some money off the bill. It's not all about the size here, the pizza tastes real good - for me, I'm not a fan of super thick dough, so it was perfect. The dough is quite thin but not crispy, nice and light. Their wine system is also great - you get a huuuuuge bottle to share and only pay for what you've actually consumed. Overall, Homeslice is one of my new favourite pizza places, perfect for date night, groups or a late night bite.

Last Friday after a few to drink I headed here for the first time. There was a bit of a wait but eventually a huge box arrived and me and my boyfriend scurried outside to eat our Margherita on the little benches in Neal's Yard. Quite frankly it was an incredible pizza - crispy and creamy in just the right amounts. Enjoyed even more by the setting - in the dark, in a pretty historic courtyard with an Italian couple chatting away behind us. We could have been in Rome! Our plan to save some slices for breakfast didn't happen and we wolfed it down in one before toddling off for the bus home. 

Claire F

Absolutely one of the best pizza places in London. I won't repeat all of the wonderful things other reviewers said, but I will add that when you arrive you can put your name on the list and they will call you when your table is ready. Sometimes the wait can be almost 2 hours on a busy night, but there are tons of pubs/bars nearby that you can have a drink at while you wait. Definitely worth it!


After having a love affair with Franco Manca for the past 2 years I think Homeslice may have just ended that affair.  While 2 of us struggled our way through the 20" pizza (for the great price of £20) we could not stop eating it.  Definitely go half and half to try as much of the amazing toppings as possible.  

WARNING - they deliver a magnum of wine that they measure at the end to price how much you drank.  Do not make the same mistake myself and a friend did and think you need to drink this all, which we were not proud of the next day.  The evening ended with a lot of red wine mouth and 2 very full bellies.

You can't beat the location! Neal's Yard is such a colourful and relaxing retreat from the busy streets of Soho. The pizzas here are enormous (20 inches) and great for 2 or 3 to share or you can buy pieces by the slice as well. Homeslice comes up with interesting new flavours that I'm sure you've never tried before.  


Any place with Prosecco on tap is a winner for me! The pizza is just an added bonus, but man is the pizza good. Around 10 flavours to chose from, some traditional and some a little more unique. A whole pizza costs £20 and is MASSIVE!, definitely enough for three people. It is also available by the slice.

Ioanna La

One of my favourite pizza places in London! Friendly atmosphere, loud, ideal for a delicious night out! Try the pizza with the butternut squash, simply amazing. And don't forget the wine, you can get a huge bottle and they'll measure it at the end to charge you accordingly. I'd say it's a bit pricey place.

Danny H

I have to agree with the more recent reviews below. This place is awesome! It's tucked away in the most amazing location in Neal's Yard near Seven Dials, and the atmosphere inside is great. Think New York pizzeria in the heart of Little Italy. Huge open pizza ovens and even bigger pizzas to share (or have to yourself if you are feeling particularly glutenous!). The pizzas are genuinely of a great standard, and that is hard to come by in London (Pizza East and Franco Manca excepted, of course). There are a variety of toppings, and enough choice to satisfy everyone, even the fussiest of eaters. Give this place a try and I guarantee you'll be trying to organise a group of your friends to go back!

Hands down my new favourite pizza place, cant believe I waited so long to try them out.

Some of the flavours are a little on the adventurous side for me but the salami one is perfectly pitched, sloppy red sauce, chilly oil drips off from the meat to dip your crusts in... perfection.

Single slice is £4 for a walk-by treat, full pizza (8 slices) is a bargain at £20, get a few pals together and walk out (or eat in) with a massive pizza. I'm totally won over. Make the journey wherever you're based!


Don’t be put off by the queue! Come and try this place. Now.

For only £20, you get a 20”pizza. Whaaat?

Come with friends, mix and match the flavours and get stuck in. You cut the pizza yourself, so it’s messy but very fun. A great dinner spot when going out with friends. Crust is thin but holds a lot of toppings.

And the restaurant’s in the middle of Neil’s Yard, so what are you waiting for?

PS: Try the goat’s shoulder with savoy cabbage and sumac yogurt – sounds weird, tastes fantastic!
