A Liverpool-Based Food Blog

The Liverpool Pizza A-Z

After the er.. 'roaring success' that was The Liverpool Burger A-Z, I've decided to continue this series of unnecessary alphabetised food lists almost a year later with a comprehensive list of everywhere decent to get a pizza.

Liverpool is bursting at the seams with the stuff at the minute and I, for one, certainly ain't complaining. From classic Italian to New York Style, the traditional to the ridiculous, monstrous sized slices and mini pizzettes we've got it all and I've (just about) found a pizza place for every letter of the whole goddam' alphabet. 

You are welcome.

A is for Amalia
Independent, family-run restaurant famous for enormous calzone eating challenges and a pizza topped with chips (see below for the evidence).

B is for Bacaro
Hit up the main restaurant for divine little pizzettes (and the rest of the incredible menu) or head over the Mersey to the Woodside Ferry Village for a big one.

C is for Crust
As the name suggests it's all about the...crust. Organic, whole-grain and black charcoal-take your pick, eat 'em up and get the curly hair you've always dreamt of.

D is for Dough
If you're lucky enough to live in the North of the city then this is the go-to for home delivery! Voted best takeaway in Liverpool by Capital FM listeners, apparently!

E is for The Elephant
A traditional pub-food menu with the added bonus of really good wood-fired pizza.

F is for Little Furnace
Two lads making traditional Neapolitan-style pizza who made a name for themselves in the Baltic Market and now have their very own place on Smithdown! Highly recommend.

G is for Grandfathers...which in Italian is Nonno's.
Tenuous, I know, but this Lark Lane Italian owned by the same people as the legendary Maranto's restaurant are all about the pizza.

How about Lock and Key?
A Duke Street bar and boutique hotel with a dedicated pizza menu served 7 days a week.

I is for The Italian Club
The Italian Club restaurants are Bold Street institutions. Italian recipes, Italian chefs, Italian pizza.

J is for Just Eat...loads of pizza on there, no? (sorry)

K is for Knead
Pop-up pizzeria and the current residents at the fab Botanical Garden.  Experimenting with lots of 'interesting' toppings and flavours (nectarines was one of them).

L is for Love and Rockets
Another Lark Lane entry. Dog-friendly bar with craft-beer, live music, all the sports and some pretty good pizza, too.

M is for Mason's
Brand new kitchen and bar on Seel Street.

N is for Nightcrawler
Super-cool neon pizza place, served by the slice at the side of The Merchant.

O is for Ottos
Famous for take-away pizzas that measure up to TWENTY (20!) inches.

P is for Pedro's
Home of the weird, the wacky and the woefully wonderful. There isn't anything these guys won't put on a pizza. Honestly there isn't.

Q is for The Quarter
A much loved Georgian-quarter restaurant with the best al fresco dining and a really good selection of stone baked pizza. 

R is for Rudy's
I fell in love with this place just before Christmas. Sloppy, simple, delicious Neapolitan pizza. One of my all-time faves.

S is for Santa Maluco
The only place on the list that does a Brazilian style rodizio (all you can eat) but with pizza. Bonus points for also having those famous Graffiti Spirits cocktails too. Five dollar shake anyone?

T is for Tribeca
New York style bar on Smithdown with a huge pizza menu.

U is for USA...and it doesn't get more USA than at American Pizza Slice.
Order an 18" and you can choose 8 different slices. Good for the indecisive..and the greedy.

V is for Vincenzo's
The well-loved, family-run Italian based on Woolton Road have become one of the resident kitchens at the newly opened Duke Street Market and are making the most of the more informal setting by serving pizza on fluffy, oval shaped dough.

W is for Little White Lies
The restaurant that replaced Miyagi. I fell in love with their carb-on-carb potato pizzette when I reviewed this one earlier this year.

X is for 'xtra good pizza' at Fritto
Based in the Kazimier Garden and famous for it's panzerotti aka deep fried pizza. Don't say that didn't spike your interest.

You tried the The Peacock?
Late night pizza that deserves more credit.

Z is for Zizzi
OK so this one's the only chain on the list but as my former workplace (a real long time ago) I still get unexpected cravings for their Rustica Pizza Piccante and you would too if you lived on them 3 days a week.

That's it! I reckon this was a much more successful attempt than my burger edition but I've missed off anywhere good then drop me a message and let me know!

Bon Appetit!
