Pizza Sophia is the exact kind of restaurant every non-stop area in London needs. This is a cute, family-run pizza spot that doesn’t overthink things. The pizzas are the kind with a fat, charred, and doughy crust, and a super thin slightly sloppy base. They’re an absolute snip at £8 for a margherita, considering how good they taste. Unfortunately this spot is no secret, and it's usually chocka, so call ahead if you’re going at peak lunch or dinner time.
