Today is national pizza day and we’re ready to place our orders – as if we needed an excuse to eat pizza. We’ve found five of the best spots in Dublin to grab a slice of cheesy goodness, so you can celebrate the right way. Here are our top picks:
National Pizza Day: Five Great Spots to Grab a Slice in Dublin
PI, South Great George’s Street
PI is an unbeatable favourite when it comes to woodfired pizza. For authentic, fresh and delicious pizza, this is an absolute must. The restaurant is owned by John Savage, who is striving to provide Dublin with great tasting, piping hot pizza just like you’d find in New York City’s famous pizzerias.
This central spot is perfect for those well-needed breaks while you explore the city. Not convinced? PI pizza was named the ‘Best Pizza in Dublin’ by Lovin’ Dublin – if that’s not reason enough to pop in, we don’t know what is.
Ray’s Pizza, Temple Bar
Ray’s Pizza is a classic when it comes to buying by the slice. The Temple Bar restaurant has been serving Dubliners and visitors of the city for decades. With a huge range of unique options, including an all day breakfast pizza, you can choose between individual slices and full and hearty pizza pies.
This is one of Dublin’s most iconic pizzerias – and for good reason. Head in and grab a slice, or make it a whole pie if you’re feeling like going the extra mile.
You’re onto a winner with this delicious pizza spot on the city’s outskirts. Manifesto in Rathmines is so good that it’s even won gold medals at the Pizza World Championships. Using only the freshest and most delicious ingredients, the restaurant is ready to impress all who pass through.
If you’re vegetarian, vegan or coeliac, Manifesto has all the best options to meet your needs. With vegan cheese and gluten free bases, all dietary requirements are considered so we can all enjoy a delicious slice on the cheesiest day of the year.
DiFontaine’s, Temple Bar
Temple Bar has done it again with this fabulous pizzeria. DiFontaine’s opened its Dublin restaurant to offer a true New York City experience, where pizza is done best. Since opening 20 years ago, the recipes at DiFontaine’s have only been getting bigger and better.
This is the perfect spot to drop in and grab your favourite pizza, offering slices and calzones, and even a 20-inch pizza for those who really want the full experience. This is one you certainly don’t want to miss on a day like today.
Dublin Pizza Company, Aungier Street
This is another great spot to grab some hot and delicious woodfired pizza. Dublin Pizza Company knows how to satisfy when it comes to food, with a fantastic menu filled with pizzas, sides and desserts. Having drawn inspiration from time spent in Naples, the owners are well-versed in the art of pizza-making.
Many of the ingredients used are Irish-sourced, including Toonsbridge Mozzarella from West Cork and Dingle Whiskey cured salami. For fresh Italian-style pizza with an authentically Irish twist, this is our go-to. How can you say no to that?
