Best pizzas in GlasgowHow do these rankings work?
Cooked in artisan built wood fired ovens brought over from Naples, their Pizzaiolos take pride in making all pies to pizza Napoletana standard. Their pizza dough is a hybrid yeast and sourdough, proofed for over 48 hours which tastes absolutely fantastic.
Unlimited toppings all for one price, with slick tunes in the background? We’re big fans of Pizza Punks. The tastiness begins with the dough. Their sourdough is made using a mature starter culture sourced from San Francisco; toppings include veggies, plenty of cheese or a great chipotle and chocolate chorizo.
‘Baffo’ (Italian for ‘moustache’) has a unique Italian approach: it’s ‘pizza al metro’,a long-rectangular pizza geared towards sharing between two or more people. But hey, pizza this good shouldn’t shared, right?
Choose a Tonda (personal size) or Mezzo Metre if you’re feeling greedy.
If you want a fun night out, this New York-style basement bar and pizzeria is the place to be. Soho Pizzeria serves up delicious pizzas (FYI, they do 2-for-1 Tuesdays!) with toppings such as chicken, bacon, onion, roasted peppers, mozzarella and BBQ sauce.
The cherry on the top? This spot is also super dog friendly with a ‘dog menu’ for your pooch.
ORO is the home of some of the best Italian food this side of Rome, swear. Run by Scotland’s very own Italian celebrity chef Domenico Crolla, it’s quickly become a Glasgow institution.
The dough is perfectly chewy, with charred crusts and gourmet toppings. Think: thin slices of Parma ham, creamy goats cheese and swirls of balsamic.
This brewing company does great beers, yes, but also amazing pies. Like the beers, their pizza dough is from scratch, in-house. The result? A light, thin pizza base, perfect for a huge feast.
Wash it down with one of their very own core range of beers; designed to be enjoyed fresh, just metres from where they’re brewed.
The original Amore Ristorante e Pizzeria first opened its doors in September 2008 in the heart of the Merchant City, Glasgow, and has been going strong ever since.
It’s a super authentic family restaurant where you’ll never have a bad meal. As for those amazing pizzas? Expect thin crusts with traditional Italian toppings with a few wild cards, like black pudding or leeks.
