If your answer to the question, ‘where do I eat pizza in London?’ is still ‘Pizza Express’, then you should consider Homeslice. This pizza restaurant makes tasty thin-crust pies with toppings that range from lighter combinations like rocket and parmesan to more adventurous ones with things like venison and pig cheek. Each pie isn’t cheap at £20, but each of them is the size of a small adult so you can easily split one between two of you. There’s prosecco and Camden Hells on tap so you’re guaranteed a good time, and as well as being a good spot for a casual meal, they sell by the slice so it’s also good for takeaway.
