Pizza lovers in Edinburgh are spoilt for choice when it comes to grabbing a slice of the action. But with pizza restaurants on almost every street it can be difficult to decide where to eat, we’ve come up with a list of our favourites and will be adding to it as we discover more. We often go overboard when adding toppings to our pizzas, so we’ll try to keep this list as refined as possible and share only our top pizza places in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh’s Best Pizza Places in 2017
Please note, we like our pizzas thin and crispy, you won’t find any deep-pan pizza restaurants in this listing.
Dough can be found on Rose Street, just behind Princes Street. There’s limited seating, but with Pizza sold by the slice you may be happy to just grab one (or two) and take a walk around Edinburgh. Dough pride themselves on creating delicious pizzas with locally sourced ingredients. Their pizza oven is a thing of beauty, delivering a perfectly crisp pizza to your table in minutes.
172 Rose Street, Edinburgh EH2 4BA
Leith Walk hosts two of our favourite pizzerias in Edinburgh, first up, Origano. With two locations on the same street, these guys mean business. The original restaurant was incredibly popular and tables were hard to come by, so it’s no surprise they expanded and opened up an XL version over the road. The original pizza place (renamed Origano Go) serves up takeaway pizzas to those on the go.
36 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 8PD
Italian street food in the heart of Edinburgh. It might be easy to overlook Civerinos, which is just off the Royal Mile with many distractions close by, but those in the know would find it hard to walk past without popping in for a slice of heaven. Civerinos is a bonny wee restaurant with supremely tasty pizzas and pasta.
5 Hunter Square, Edinburgh, EH1 1QW
If Edinburgh was a pizza, La Favorita would be the toppings, with four locations scattered around the city. La Favorita’s takeaway offering is a firm favourite at EdinBlogger HQ, especially when midweek laziness hits us (and an offer we can’t refuse arrives in our inbox).
