Whilst we’d like to think we could easily demolish a full pizza each time, often it’s just not the case due to piggish appetites leading to already full tums. Which is why the slice is a groovy alternative that you can grab and go. Here are some of the pizza by the slice spots you doughn’t want to miss…

Paradise Slice

This little slice of paradise does just what it says on the tin offering customers pizza by the slice New York style. Situated on buzzy Brick Lane, the pizza go-to features classic toppings and rotating specials including yummy vegan option You’ve Got Kale with sweet potato, kale, onion, artichoke and vegan pesto.

Voodoo Rays

The vibrant Voodoo Rays offers up millennial vibes and tasty pizza on a daily. They bake massive 22” New York-style pizzas and serve them up to hungry passers-by in slice form. Layered up in creamy Buffalo and fior di latte mozzarellas they’re truly unmissable pizzas.

Happy Face

You’ll certainly don a happy face after visiting this vibrant pizzeria, located in King’s Cross. The Neapolitan joint – quite aptly named Happy Face – provides you with all the retro vibes you need which can be enjoyed alongside a tempting menu of Its;ian classics made using a 72-hoour dough ferment. The large space sees itself not as a chain but instead a void between that and some of the crazily high-priced pizza joints in the city. Further reasons to visit if the dough has tempted you to go, include a millennial pink exterior to grab a photo infront o, and a swanky vermouth-led cocktail bar named SUPERMAX beneath the pizzeria which excludes 1970s glamour.

Included in the busy pizza menu is the chance to grab a drink with a slice for just a fiver come lunchtime – Ooo, yes please!

Homeslice, loved purveyors of those 20 inch pizzas and seasonally evolving menu, really are doughy specialists delivering the goods day in and day out. If the thought of 20 inches makes you wince then grab a pizza by the slice by choosing from the top three options on the menu. Cheesus crust!

Joe Public

Joe Public is called just that for a reason. Why? Well, because the restaurant is situated in the loo, no really! Not to fear though; you’re not going to be eating in stalls on porcelain thrones but you will be eating delicious pizza (if you can see past the fact that you are, indeed, in a bog). Located right next to Clapham Common tube, you can grab a slice for your commute from the classics to lesser seen options such as native mushrooms with crispy shallots, truffle oil, parmesan and cream chive base.
