You're guaranteed to find all your favourites here. Whether you are a fan of the folded calzone, the rich flavours of the meaty Napoletana, or a simple Margherita, you'll find something to love.

3. Itzza Pizza
An inventive fusion of American and Italian inspirations awaits you at Itzza Pizza. They've got all the usual suspects here, from a Margherita and Pepperoni to you classic mushroom-topped delight. But they also push the flavour boat out a bit. We love the Lamb Roast for something really different, where you'll find tomato sauce, mozzarella, roasted lamb, onions cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic, mint and herbs.

The guys here are flying the flag for all the vegetarians out there, with all sorts of veggie-friendly offerings. We love the Burrata, where you'll get traditional fresh cheese, mozzarella and fresh stracciatella, rocket, cherry tomatoes and served up with a side of rustic bread. But if you're dining with a carnivore don't worry, there's a pizza for every palate here. Just look at the Smoked Provola & Ham, where Italian mozzarella teams up with smoky provola cheese and delicate turkey ham.

It's all about the base at Pinza. 'Four flours for one perfect Pinza' is their boast, and they top their unique bases with all sorts of goodies.

Try one of their organic, vegetarian or vegan combinations for that feel good glow, or go for the sweet spot with the Nutella and banana topping.
