1. Baked in Brick

This award-winning street food joint now has a permanent store that’s a mecca for Birmingham pizza. The 60-seater restaurant has a wood-fired oven serving up Neapolitan-style pizzas, whole and by the slice.

Crusts are perfectly charred from the flames, with toppings such as peking duck or wild, herby mushrooms.

2. Otto Wood Fired Pizza

Otto has a huge local fanbase, and for good question. The menu of eight wood-fired pizzas changes regularly, with some great toppings. Think: nduja, truffle oil, Irish artisanal goat cheese or roast cauliflower.

The dough is left to prove until light and fluffy, when it’s blasted at 500 degrees for 90 seconds.

It’s beautifully authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. Keep it simple with a Margherita and let the dough and sauce shine.

4. Alicia’s Micro Bakehouse

Alicia’s is all about great dough – it rests for a minimum of 24 hours, perfecting its light texture and beautifully bubbly crust. Their sourdough crust is chewy and the ultimate base for tasty toppings.

Plus, portions are just the right size, so you won’t leave here feeling too stuffed.

Best bit? They’re all under a tenner. Go for the bresoala pie with rocket, parmesan and lemon.
