Is it good? Is it bad? We don't know, but we can't look away... Revamping the good ol' Xmas dinner, this year, we're celebrating the season's end how we really want - with pizza. Bringing you classic Crimbo flavours on dough, we've curated a list of the best festive pizzas at London restaurants to shake up your typical roast routine - because turkey dinners are like, so 5 minutes ago.
A winter wonderland offering a menu that changes with the seasons, Neverland might just be London's most Christmassy venue, offering fancy-shmancy themed specials like winter veg, yakitori and festive chicken pizza (£12), all framed on a sourdough base and laden with toppings like butternut squash, cranberry sauce and even stuffing (?). Situated near the Thames, this enchanting venue turns into a picture-perfect winter escape from the city, illuminated by twinkling lights and equipped with cosy Alpine-style cabins. What's not to love?
Pizza Pilgrims' famously plentiful Crimbo menu is BACK. Available throughout December, their nutty reigning champion, It's a Wonderful Slice (£14.75), boasts a creamy white base topped with mortadella ham slices, fior de latte and blanched pistachios, with the ever-so festive cherry on top: a heavenly dollop of pistachio and lemon-infused cream and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Yum, yum and did we mention yum?
This is your sign to rally your mates and book in for an unforgettably bonkers Christmas dinner with a Bunga Bunga twist. Their Crimbo extravaganza includes incredible performances, festive bangers, boozy Bacardi cocktails and a four-course menu featuring a metre-long pizza flurried with cotto ham, roast potato bites, rosemary and fresh garlic—the perfect seasonal spin on a traditional Xmas dining experience. Winter motto: eat, drink, sing and repeat. A full-on night of entertainment including dinner and show ranges between £50 – £65.
Going the whole nine yards with their Christmas creation, this award-winning Clapham pizzeria has introduced an Xmas pie with all the trimmings. Their seasonal special, a fantastically outlandish stuffed turkey and Yorkshire pudding pizza topped with chestnuts, cranberry sauce, raisins and sage breadcrumbs, is just too good to miss. But that's not all; if you're not a big pizza fan, their seasonal-themed menu (£25.95) continues with delicacies like pumpkin and chestnut ravioli and nonna's homemade tiramisu. Festive coma pending.
Meatballs are the stars of the Pizza Natale pie at Ask Italian. Topped with pulled turkey, pancetta, chestnuts, brussels sprouts, balsamic onions and sage and onion meatballs, this dough of legends is like having a literal Christmas Roast on a pizza. P.S: For a sweet ending, don't forget to nibble on the oh-so-delicious Festive Snowball Chocolate Gnocchi, a nutella-filled twist on our fav Italian dumplings. 3 courses for £27.50 a pop.
