The best pizza takeaways for delivery in London

Get a decent pizza from one of the capital’s finest parlours

By Time Out London Food & Drink

There are tons of pizza joints and chains in this town. Some of them are bad, many are adequate (depending on the level of booze consumed), some are good and a few are exceptional. Here’s our pick of the best still doing takeaway and/or delivery during London’s lockdown. It’s about the most fun you can have with a cardboard box on your lap that doesn’t involve Cold War Steve’s ‘Hellscape’ jigsaw puzzle. Chow!

PLEASE NOTE: Owing to the constantly changing situation, restaurant opening times and delivery/takeaway options are liable to alter at short (or no) notice. While we try and stay up to date, always check with venues’ sites and social channels.

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele

Restaurants Italian Soho

This world-famous Baker Street pizzeria (the Naples original features in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ with Julia Roberts, who plays an artichoke) must be one of the priciest on Deliveroo – the truffle-mushroom version costs nearly £20, and most of the others are upwards of £14. Worth the splurge? W1 residents seem to think so.

Order via Deliveroo.

Arancina

Restaurants Pizza Bayswater

A family-run, Roman-style pizzeria serving Sicilian deli items alongside rectangular ‘alla pala’ pizzas. It’s fiercely authentic, so expect handmade pizza dough, arborio rice for the arancini and an emphasis on provenance when it comes to all the produce. For now, it’s doing delivery via Deliveroo.

ASAP Pizza

A new pizza brand from the team behind the Michelin-starred Lyle’s and Borough Market wine bar and bakery Flor, ASAP Pizza is predictably high-end stuff, with posh pies such as a Hawaiian with pickled scotch bonnet, grilled pineapple and cured pig’s cheek, and the allium-inating ‘On and On’ with green onions, new season garlic, wild garlic and wild marjoram. There are also desserts like tiramisu and ice cream sandwiches from east London’s Happy Endings.  

ASAP Pizza will operate from the Flor kitchen in Borough Market via Click & Collect and Deliveroo, with a delivery radius including London Bridge, Southwark, Elephant & Castle, and Kennington. Outside this area, ASAP Pizza kits are promised.

Details on their site. 

Enoteca Rosso

Restaurants Italian Holland Park

This snazzy Kensington Italian has just reopened its kitchen to deliver pasta and sauces, plus pizzas serving four (or possibly two portly Kensingtonites in cinnamon cords). The 25-inch rectangular pizzas are available as margherita only for now, with a selection of toppings coming soon. 

Order on 07384 595191 or email flavio@enotecarosso.com. Delivery is within two miles of the restaurant and is free.

Four Hundred Rabbits

Restaurants Pizza Nunhead

No need to hop out of bed to enjoy Four Hundred Rabbits’ never-less-than-brilliant wood-fired pizzas – let Deliveroo bring them to you. The chefs here choose ingredients with great care (think Brindisa chorizo, rare-breed beef mince and Arbequina extra-virgin olive oil), there are plenty of great vegan options, and branches in Nunhead, Crystal Palace, West Norwood and Herne Hill. 

More info on their site.

Homeslice

Restaurants Pizza Bank

Homeslice is currently doing collections and deliveries (via Supper) from its Marylebone restaurant only. Expect the extra combos that made it famous, like a Neal’s Yard Dairy four-cheese pie with jalapeño salsa and rye crumb, or chorizo, corn and coriander.

Joe Public

Restaurants Pizza Clapham

For California-style pizza, this cheap-and-cheerful hut above Clapham Common station is the one, and it’s on Deliveroo. You get to choose from eight different combinations (the courgette and aubergine number, with a garlic butter base, is highly recommended), or you can build your own and pile on all the toppings your heart desires.

Made of Dough

Restaurants Pizza Peckham

Any two Neapolitan pizzas and a bottle of wine brought to your door by Deliveroo (4pm-9pm) for £35 (or £38 for meat pizzas)? This Peckham locals’ favourite has fancy at-home date nights sorted. The dough is fermented for 48 hours and the toppings are all top-notch, with meats coming from Peckham butcher Flock & Herd. MoD also won Time Out’s 2018 ‘Pizza Prizefight’ competition!

Mulberry Street

3 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Italian Bayswater

Both branches of the self-styled ‘New York pizzeria’ – Notting Hill and Shoreditch – are still open for delivery and contact-free collections. Order via their site.

Pi Pizza

3 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Italian Battersea

Winchester, home of the pizza… Okay, but it is home to Pi Pizza. Their second branch in Battersea is still doing delivery via Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat.

Pizza Pilgrims

Restaurants Pizza Soho

Only the Victoria branch of this pizza chain is still open for delivery (via Deliveroo). However, in a bold move, the Pilgrims have concocted a DIY pizza kit which you fry in a pan. It’s also available for delivery and they plan to post nationwide. More details here. As they say, strange times…

Pizzeria Pappagone Sud

Restaurants Italian Elephant & Castle

The Elephant & Castle pizza merchant is back open for business (takeaway and collection, anyway). This southside offshoot of the popular Finsbury Park original is doing its classic pies and other antipasti-type stuff.

It’s open noon-9.30pm, Tuesday-Sunday and available on: Deliveroo, Uber Eats and JustEat, or by calling 020 8075 5221.

 

Purezza

Restaurants Vegan Camden Town

Plant-based pizza lovers, rejoice: Camden’s all-vegan pizzeria is on Deliveroo, as well as having its own delivery arm. Its sourdough bases are matured for 48 hours and topped with the likes of ‘mozzarella’ made in-house with rice milk, wood-smoked tofu and shaved seitan, plus plenty of fresh veg. We reckon the dough balls are (whisper it) even better than Pizza Express’s.

Santa Maria

Restaurants Italian Ealing

In London, you’ll be hard-pressed to find better, more traditional Neapolitan pizza than at Santa Maria, who have spearheaded a renaissance for the doughy staple from their base in Ealing for a few years now, picking up plenty of accolades along the way. Its branches (Ealing, Fulham and Fitzrovia) are now serving via Deliveroo for a decidedly upmarket cardboard box on your lap.

Story Deli Pop-Up Pizza Place

Restaurants Italian Bethnal Green

The original Story Deli was in Dray Walk off Brick Lane, and was a strong east London contender in our last knockout contest to find London’s best pizza. They use all-organic ingredients and at least two of their thin-based creations are startlingly hot. They’re doing takeaways right now from their new pop-up on Cambridge Heath Road, and deliveries via Ritual. Order click and collect on 07918197352. They’re open noon-3pm and 6pm-9pm (last orders). Updates via their flowery/floury Insta.

Theo’s Pizzeria

Restaurants Pizza Camberwell

South London legend Theo’s does Neapolitan pizzas in superlatively simple style. Meat feasts are a strength (Napoli salami, or ’nduja and ricotta), but the cheesy garlic focaccia is also a scene-stealer, especially with a little pot of homemade chilli sauce for dunking. It’s SE5 delivery and safe collection only at the moment, from its Camberwell branch, 5pm-9pm, Tue-Sat. See @theospizzeria or call 020 3026 4224 to order.

Yard Sale Pizza

Restaurants Pizza Clapton

All branches of the pizza chain that once hosted Macaulay Culkin’s woeful VU ‘tribute’ the Pizza Underground are open for business, so they are now officially forgiven. It’s pick-up and contact-free delivery only, of course. Order via its site.

Zia Lucia

Restaurants Italian Holloway Road

If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of Holloway Road (or, indeed, Wembley, Hammersmith or Aldgate East) you can get Zia Lucia’s peerless slow-fermented pizzas to go through Deliveroo. The Green Vegana with spicy broccoli cream is plant-based perfection, while goths will appreciate the inky-black charcoal base option.

Zzetta - Soul Fired Pizza

Restaurants Pizza Canning Town

Canning Town’s top (and, indeed, only) artisanal pizza joint is still open for business. Check out its cute menu divided into ‘Covent Garden Market’ (veggie), ‘Billingsgate Market’ (fishy) and ‘Smithfield Market’ (meaty). Deliveries and collections are via its website, app and old-school landline telephone (020 3904 7074).

It’s also on Deliveroo and Just Eat.
