There are many times in one’s life – like this very Friday, for example – that only a pizza will do. So, it’s a good thing that, here in London, we happen to have the third best offering in the whole of Europe. Well, outside of Italy, that is.
Yes, 50 Top Pizza are back to give us their rankings in this truly vital list, and it’s pretty good reading for London. 50 Kalò has taken the title of third best pizzeria in the whole of Europe in a list that discounts Italy because, well, they’d probably just fill out the entire top 50, wouldn’t they?
50 Top Pizza praised the Charing Cross pizza aficionados for their “pleasant interior”, high-quality raw ingredients, excellent vegetarian selections, vast drinks lists and fair prices. (Read the full entry here)
But where can you go in Europe (again, outside of Italy) that serves a better slice than 50 Kalò? Let’s start in Paris with the top dogs of the list: Peppe Pizzeria, who have just claimed the #1 spot for the second year in a row! Thanks to their pizzas that are said to be akin to Neapolitan street food, they’ll be going into 2023 hoping to make it a hat-trick of pizza-shaped victories.
Narrowly beating London to second place is sunny Madrid, where the experts at Fratelli Figurato run a Neapolitan pizza joint on a small street in the centre. They even have a pizza called the “Diego Armando” dedicated to the footballing royalty of Maradona.
50 Kalò London also won the special award Made in Italy 2022.
