Tried and tested pizza joints in Edinburgh


A lot of thought goes into making good pizza, you know. From planning the cheese to tomato ratio to just how crispy the base needs to be, it ain't an easy job, and it's equally tricky trying to pick somewhere to eat it. We've narrowed down the selection of Italian restaurants in Edinburgh to some of our favourites for pizza.

New York-style pizza, including the irresistible Grandma slice, baked in a Sicilian pan for a crispy crust.

Crispy pizza in 90 seconds? Can you believe? What a time to be alive.
