Street food has taken off in London like it has in all major cities. With the influx of tourists visiting London looking for the best cheap, quick, convenient food available it is no surprise. Pizza is a great choice for a semi-nutritious food that ticks all those boxes.

There’s almost nothing better than a proper pizza. So versatile, you can have almost any topping you like on a variety of different bases, from sourdough to cauliflower. Pizza has been a staple food in London almost as long as it has in Italy but that doesn’t mean it’s boring, and visiting some of these fantastic restaurants will make you think again about this classic dish.
Mayfair Pizza Co (Mayfair)
This light, airy, open plan restaurant on New Bond Street has a classic menu, with salads, pastas and fish as well as pizza. Their speciality, the 'Mayfair Pizza Co Truffle Pizza' is a simple yet stunningly decadent topping of mozzarella and porcini mushrooms drizzled with black truffle oil, and their dessert menu features some delicious morsels, including the 'Salted Chocolate Oreo Tart' which is to die for. They also offer pizza making evenings, where you can learn the skills of a pizza chef over a glass of prosecco.
Ok, this mozzarella bar and kitchen doesn't just serve pizza but it had to make the list. Made with the freshest, seasonal ingredients, and dough that has proved for 2 days to give the lightest of bases, you can almost taste Italy when you sample one of their simple but outstanding pizzas. Situated on Charlotte Street, the culinary mecca of Fitzrovia, you simply can't visit this eatery without indulging in the array of different mozzarellas and salamis they have on offer.
Fire & Stone (Covent Garden)
This Covent Garden pizzeria is bright, fun and friendly, and their menu has a modern twist on the usual Neapolitan style toppings. Each Pizza is named after a city, and the ingredients are inspired by the place of which the Pizza is named. From London, with almost a full English on top of the light base, to Marrakech with its spiced lamb, preserved lemon and pomegranate topping, you can go around the world from the comfort of your table. A mouth-watering selection of salads, pastas and burgers for those who don't fancy a pizza you can't go wrong in this gem of the Covent Garden crown.
Homeslice started life as a mobile wood-fired oven, and although they have moved to more permanent surroundings the authentic wood-oven cooked pizzas are still just as delicious. This relaxed and friendly Fitzrovia pizzeria has a menu full of pizzas with a twist on the classics, and they use seasonal produce to keep their menu fresh and exciting. Serving their most popular pizzas by the slice and all their pies in 20" sharer sizes this restaurant is perfect for a quick lunch for two or dinner with friends.
