Blogger's Choice: 5 of Our Favorite Pizzas in London

Pizza Week is coming to a close - we're already told you about surveyor's favorite pie spots, as well as where to go for the many varieties of pizza London has to offer. And now, we're thinking about our own personal favourite slices. We've been eating our way through the doughiest, cheesiest, crispiest pizza around town (taste buds are thrilled, waistline not so much) to put together a list of our top five. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it.

Pizza Metro 
The traditional Neopolitan restaurant serves pizza by the metre with fresh dough made on site every morning topped with Italian vine-riped tomatoes sauce. It's so fresh, it's almost good for you.

The Oak 
We've said it once and we'll say it again - the fresh-from-the-oven pizza at this Notting Hill gastropub is so crispy and full of flavour, it will feel as if you have died and gone to Naples.

Il Baretto
The basement space is always hot and heaving, thanks not only to the hungry crowd but also the wood fired pizza oven in constant use. Expect a thin-based, bubble-crusted pizza with fresh tomato and mozzarella. Nothing less would do for this posh crowd of diners.

Delfino Pizzeria
It might look too big to eat alone, but the paper thin pizza at this neighbourhood spot is so light, you'll be looking down at an empty plate before you know what happened.

Pizza East 
Why stick to a boring margherita when you can have pizza with veal meatballs, proscuitto and cream or goat's cheese, tomatoes, onion and pesto?
