Pizza is the answer to all of our problems.
Bad day at work – pizza.
Dumped by bae – pizza.
Evicted from apartment – pizza.
It really does make everything ten times better, so to celebrate our beloved Italian delicacy we have compiled a list of all the best places to chow down on ‘za in Dublin.
In no particular order, these are the best pizza places in Dublin right now:
1. Dublin Pizza Company – Aungier Street
This has quickly become one of Dublin’s most popular pizza spots. It’s served straight out of a window, it doesn’t even have seats and often has queues lining down the street waiting for this heavenly pizza.
They traveled to Naples to find the perfect recipe, built their own pizza oven, grow their own fresh ingredients and source lots of Irish ones (hello Dingle Whiskey cured salami, we’re lookin’ at you).
2. BoCo – Bolton Street
Formerly Bodkins Bar and The Hungry Mexican, this spot is inspired by New York pizza joints and looks like it would be more at home in London than Dublin.
Needless to say, we’re delighted they’ve set up shop here rather than over in London, ‘cos we love it wholeheartedly.
Top tip: try every crust dip on offer in BoCo and order the chocolate tasting board for desert.
3. Da Mimmo – North Strand
We’ve named this best pizza in Dublin in the past, and for a very good reason.
It’s a family-run business that offers authentic Italian cuisine – as good as you’d find anywhere in Italy. Fact.
Da Mimmo have expanded their operation last year due to growing popularity, thankfully.
4. Tiger – Rathmines
Rathmines’ coolest pizza joint that serves excellent pizza time and time again.
Their pizzas are made using sourdough which give unique tasty and extra crispy crusts.
Tiger use delish meats all the way from Italy and fresh produce sourced locally.
5. The Revolution – Rathgar
If you’re looking for pizza on a Monday, The Revolution is the only spot you should be heading to.
€10 for delicious pizzas all day on Mondays. We do love a bargain.
The Wild Mushroom is our all time fave.
6. Cirillo’s – Lower Baggot Street
On the fancier side of pizza joints located on Dublin’s Baggot Street Lower.
Their Carbonara pizza made waves in Dublin last summer and is still a clear favourite.
Their pizzas are cooked Napoletana style in a pizza oven they brought over all the way from Naples.
7. The Back Page – Phibsborough
Easily our favourite spot on the Northside.
We’ve devoured many a pizza and downed many a pint in The Back Page.
Plenty of games to play or pongs to ping pong while you wait for the kitchen to create magic in the form of a pizza for you.
8. Zizzi – Suffolk Street + Dundrum
This ones for all the vegans out there.
It ain’t easy to find vegan pizzas, unless you’re whipping them up yourself in the kitchen.
Luckily for us, UK franchise Zizzi’s based in Dublin on Suffolk Street and out in Dundrum have our dream vegan pizzas <3 worth a try.
9. Base Pizza
We often enjoy Base Pizza in The Jar on Wexford Street but it’s also available from their Stillorgan, Ballsbridge, Terenure, Lucan and Glenageary locations.
The Diabolo is, and forever will be, our absolute favourite.
Be sure to check out or ask about their special offers as you can often nab a bargain.
10. Paulie’s Pizza, Grand Canal Street Upper
We often save the best for last, and Paulie’s definitely holds a special place in our hearts.
Paulie’s ‘The Zoe’ is a strong contender for the best pizza in all of Dublin and brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘spicy’.
A must-try in Dublin.
