Screw you, Valentine’s Day, because today is National Pizza Day – a far bigger deal. To celebrate, we’ll be getting our mouths round some of the finest slices, pies and 12-inchers in town, whether they’re doused in chilli oil, slathered in hot mozzarella or stacked with morsels of piquant meat.
To get you started, we recommend placing yourself firmly in one of the queues for Franco Manca for sourdough deliciousness, booking a table at Pizza East for more inventive toppings than mama used to make, or grabbing a slice to go from the likes of Pizza Pilgrims or Homeslice. Now that’s amore!
