Who doesn’t love pizza?! Bristol is home to some amazing pizzeria’s, some of which are independent restaurants but I have included some of the chains too, because if you’re not from a city you may have never heard of these before. Read on to get a slice of the action…!
As well as being known for their incredible pizzas, The Stable is known for the sheer amount of cider they serve. The Stable do cider tasting experiences, where an expert will serve you the ciders which they think you’ll like based on your taste, I’d highly recommend the cider tasting experience!

Based on Gloucester Road, Planet Pizza serves up a great selection of pizzas. Whether you fancy something with meat or go completely meatless, you will not be disappointed. If you’d like to make it gluten-free, you’re also able to do so. During mid-week they tend to have a good deal on, I used to go when I was at university when it was around £10 for a pizza and a pint!
Location: Cabot Circus, Quakers Friars
Think you’ve seen a large pizza? Think again! L’Osteria serves up the biggest pizzas I have ever seen, when I go with friends, we usually share half a pizza each and also a pasta dish so you get the best of both worlds! They’re used to people not being able to finish the pizza, so they’re more than happy to box up the rest for you to take home too.

There are many Franco Manca’s throughout the UK but the sourdough pizza is that good that it does need to be included on the list. All of the bases are made from scratch at each pizzeria and as well as the seven pizza toppings on the menu, there are also daily specials in store too. My favourite is the Roasted cured ham, British mozzarella, ricotta & wild mushrooms, with a side of garlic bread of course!
Location: Park Street
Moltobuono may just be one of my favourite pizzerias in Bristol. It’s a family-run authentic Italian with recipes passed down through generations. You can really tell when you’re dining in as it feels very warm and welcome, which is exactly what you want from a restaurant. Both the pizza’s and pasta are incredible and the menu is at a fantastic price too!
Location: Gloucester Road, Park Street & Wapping Wharf
Pizzarova has been around since 2013 when the owner fitted his car with a pizza oven before opening their first store in Bristol. Now, there are three physical shops in Bristol. On the menu, you have the classic margherita as well as the Rova specials, as well as ‘ours’ and ‘yours’. Ours is a monthly changing pizza with 50p of each sale going to a local charity. The Yours pizza is completely unique to you (and is what I usually go for!) you can pick the fresh toppings to go onto the classic margherita pizza.
Location: Regent Street & Whiteladies Road
There are two Bosco Pizzeria’s in Bristol, both of which are in Clifton. Whether you fancy a tomato-based pizza or a white one, the menu is extensive. The Funghi pizza is pictured below, Pizza Bianca for the win!

Pizza and craft beer go hand in hand, Beerd was the first craft beer and pizza restaurant in Bristol. The menu is extensive, giving you the option to pick whatever you fancy on the day, you can also swap for gluten-free bases and vegan cheese too. As well as the extensive pizza menu, they’ve also got a great bunch of sides too, including topped fries and a sharing board!
Pizza Bella is a pizzeria in Bedminster, due to the pandemic they installed a pizza vending machine, the first in the country, making it incredibly unique! There’s a touch screen that you use to order a pizza of your choice and within three minutes your pizza will be available to collect.

Pizza Workshop has three shops in Bristol, the sourdough is slowly risen over 30 hours and topped with homemade tomato sauce. Whether you fancy a bite to eat at lunchtime or a three-course meal, Pizza Workshop has a fantastic menu. They even serve up a Nutella and banana pizza!
In addition, you’re also able to attend a pizza course, meaning you can master the skill yourself to make banging pizzas at home too!

The artisan Romana style pizza restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients and has brought together an expert team from some of the best talents in Bristol due to other restaurant closures.
