Sometimes you get a craving that only a belly full of pizza will satisfy. Whether you’ve got a hankering for a slice of no-nonsense margherita, or you’re after the full works - here’s where you can get your fix. Based on the results of the i-on Food and Drink Reader Awards 2016 in association with Deliveroo, we present to you six of the best pizzerias in the capital.

Judging by the epic portion sizes at Civerinos, their pizzas are the perfect solution to any hunger pangs. Describing themselves as serving up 'Italian food stripped of pretense and cliche', their menu offers good, honest street-food dishes full of fresh flavour. Accompanying monster-sized slices of pizza, there are also plenty of other Italian treats on the menu including their legendary arancini balls - deep-fried cheesy goodness, swathed in a rich and herby tomato ragu.
