The Hoxton Seven

This quirky spot in Hoxton is great for a cheap-but-tasty Italian pizza in London - expect stone baked beauties topped with super-fresh ingredients. Whichever one of these bad boys you opt for, you'll get change back from a tenner. Even better, pop in with a friend during happy hour and you can grab a pizza each for just 10 quid! Naturally, make sure you wash it down with a happy hour cocktail too.

Simply put, Goat DINE is one of our favourite places to enjoy an Italian meal in London. Head down to this relaxed New York/Italian diner in Fulham Road for a chilled out meal with friends that's sure to impress. The menu here will see you getting your chops around the likes of wood-fired pizzas and char-grilled T-bone steaks. Whatever you opt for, make sure you wash it all down with a glass of fine Italian vino.

We're not sure what kind of magic the fine folk at Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes are using in their stone bake ovens, but this quaint bar is easily one of the best places to get a pizza in London. Tuck into your first slice and it'll be sure to leave you speechless. Best off all, if you head down before 5pm during the week, you can grab yourself a pizza and a bev for under a tenner. Si per favore!
