I’d genuinely live off pizza everyday if I could. In fact, when I was at uni there was one week where I had about 6 dominoes pizzas, wild. I’ve spoken about my favourite places in Plymouth for breakfast before and independent coffee shops and thought it was time to shed light on the best places for pizza in Plymouth. The only question is, as a self confessed pizza lover, how have I not done this before?
I’ve had much delight in trying lots of pizzas over the years in Plymouth, here’s some of the best places to grab a slice in Plymouth!
I discovered Knead Pizza during lockdown 1.0 and they were serving takeaway out of The Lord High Admiral pub which is just behind Lidl. Oh, myyyy these pizzas are SO good. They are currently located out of the terrace in the courtyard at the LHA, but there is word on the street that they might be moving soon! They also do collection and deliveries between Wednesday and Saturday.
Their Neapolitan artisan pizzas do what the conventional takeaways just don’t do. It tastes like ‘proper’ Italian pizza which isn’t gorged in grease. Do you really ‘knead’ anymore convincing? 😉
If you’re looking for an all round, good Italian restaurant Wildwood is a great choice. Situated in Royal William Yard, not only is their building GORGEOUS, their pizza is so good too! Would also highly rate their Rosemary garlic bread, the dream. They do takeaway pizza too for a ridiculous price, perfect for grabbing a pizza and eating it out in the sun in the yard in the summer.
What’s better than views, and pizza? Nothing. I have adored The Stable since their launch night 6 years ago in Plymouth. Conveniently situated overlooking the harbour on the Barbican, The Stable is home to pizza, pies and ciders. Back to the pizza, each of their pizzas is named after different iconic landmarks/places/people to do with Plymouth. Enter the Plympton Pecker Pizza. Lol. It is in fact the name of a real pizza and it just adds that little quirk to this cool eatery by the sea. Could not recommend enough.
Aroma Woodfired Pizza
I have heard such good things about Aroma woodfired pizza, they only offer takeaway for their pizzas among other meals such as burgers and Indian food. They seem like a great independent in Plymouth and their 5* reviews speak volumes. I know what I’m ordering this weekend…
Positano is a wholesome, family run restaurant which originated back in the 90s by two Italians from Positano. You really get that truly authentic and Italian experience when you eat here which you don’t get at any of the other pizza places in Plymouth. Italians making genuine Italian pizza, it doesn’t get any better than that! Positano is located on Mayflower street in the centre of town, definitely worth a visit!
Another independent, family run business in the heart of Plymouth is Il Capricio. They serve up a gorgeous range of Italian food including their pizzas, with special pizzas coming onto the menu each week. Everything is cooked from fresh and is delicious, at really affordable prices.
Zizzi is part of the newly opened Barcode complex in the centre of Plymouth. The perfect place to stop for a pizza before heading off for drinks or a visit to Cineworld. They have outdoor seating too which is perfect for those holiday terrace vibes during the summer. Their rustica pizzas are hugeeee, perfect for sharing if you just fancy a few slices of pizza!
There’s plenty of amazing places to grab a slice of the good stuff next time you’re in Plymouth! Can you recommend anymore? Which one is your favourite?
