The Best Pizza In Liverpool

11 November


This post is the first in a new series which aims to showcase the best of Liverpool. When people who have never been here before visit me, they always seem surprised at just how amazing this city is. We're criminally underrated, and that needs to change.

We have some pretty fantastic places to eat, drink and shop and one of the strongest independent scenes in the UK. I've lived here all my life and I want show off the gems that my city has to offer. I'm aiming to put a new post up about the very best places in Liverpool every Friday, so if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment below or tweet me.

It's going to be tough, sampling delicious food and hanging out in cool places in the name of spreading the word, but I guess I can deal with it...

So, naturally I'm going to begin with pizza, my go-to food for every occasion. Liverpool isn't short of a pizza or two, but three restaurants in particular stand out for me.



Where: 122 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4JA
              52 Whitechapel, Liverpool, L1 6EG
              112 South Road, Waterloo, Liverpool, L22 0ND

Why it's the best: American Pizza Slice is special to me because it's the first independent restaurant in Liverpool that I ever went to, back when I was a little emo kid hanging around in town. We used to buy a slice on the way to drink underage at the pier head. Soz, mum.

They serve pizza New York style, by the slice, and it's pretty darn tasty as well as easy on the wallet. You'll find plenty of choice and there are usually deals on if you're feeling the pinch. The vibe is pretty laid back and it's a great place to enjoy a slice with a cold beer while admiring the pizza box art and posters on the ceiling in the Bold Street branch. It's our own little piece of NYC in Liverpool.

Oh, and they have THE BEST Twitter. Go follow them.



Where: 25 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HR

Why it's the best:
Crust opened late last year on Bold Street and since then I've visited at least once a month. There's an extensive pizza menu as well as pasta and burgers. It's more Italian style than American so the pizza toppings are more traditional and it's a tiny bit more formal than American Pizza Slice. They open for breakfast as well, which I'm keen to try. Sadly, there is no breakfast pizza.

True to their name, you can also choose from four different types of pizza crust, including a black dough crust which is rather tasty (but maybe check your teeth afterwards). I love that they offer dairy-free cheese rather than just the option to remove cheese for vegans; they're the first place in Liverpool (that I'm aware of) that do this.

I reviewed them in full here.



Where: 15 Berry Street, Liverpool, L1 9DF
              336-338 Smithdown Road, Liverpool, L15 5AN

Why it's the best:
TriBeCa is another American style pizza bar with comfy booths and big TV screens giving it a chilled out feel. It's become a weekend favourite with some of my friends as they usually show the footy, so you can enjoy your pizza while having an excuse to ignore the people you're with. They have some unique pizza toppings like Irish Breakfast and Panang Beef Curry, as well as loads more.

TriBeCa also do cocktails for £3.50 from Monday to Thursday. What more reason do you need to justify a midweek pizza and a bev?


Il Forno: 132 Duke Street, Liverpool, L1 5AG

Santa Maluco: 2 Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 0NA

Maguire's: 77 Renshaw Street, Liverpool, L1 2SJ
