Where to get the best pizza in Manchester for National Pizza Day

1 year ago

Manchester’s pizza scene is full to bursting with burrata, black olives and sprinklings of freshly cracked black pepper.

Much like a group of Manc Calvin Harris’, we get all the pizza. We like them square pizzas, round pizzas, and 22-inch in diameter pizzas.

If it’s a pilgrimage in aid of National Pizza Day you’re after, look no further than some of the best pizza joints in the Greater Manchester area.

    Cibus

    Restaurant - Italian

    Ah, those awkward encounters when you bump into someone at a party and can’t recall their name or where you know them from. This is how the conversation goes. “Cibus – you remember, stall at Levy Market. No? OK, pop-up pizza place above Fred’s Ale House…”

    Cuckoo

    Restaurant - Italian

    Like the interloping bird that gives it its name, Cuckoo was an odd-one-out when it first opened in Prestwich back in 2013. Since then a whole flock of likeminded, indie cafe-bars have landed in this suburb, but Cuckoo is still the favourite for many.

  • Book Now Sale

    Mano A Bocca

    Restaurant - Italian

    “Roma è arrivata a Sale!” – Rome has arrived in Sale – proclaims the website, which is a slight exaggeration, although is at least true of the Roman-style thin-crust pizzas served at Mano A Bocca. Meaning “hand to mouth”, this pizzeria advises ditching the cutlery, the base not unlike focaccia.

  • Vegan Pizza at Proove Pizza, Didsbury
    Book Now Didsbury

    Proove Pizza

    Restaurant - Italian

    Proove Pizza has proven itself to be a success which is fortunate because there’s no shortage of eateries slinging out Neapolitan pizzas from their disco ball of a wood-fired oven. It’s up there, flinging around its fior di latte and spreading its San Marzano tomatoes with the best of the authentic slow-proved pizza pack and even if it’s not numero uno, it’s definitely a contender.

    The interior is cool and sleek if a little lacking in character but the personality is all in the pizza. The bases are made with 00-grade Caputo flour and proved for 20 hours before being transformed into pure pizza pleasure.
