Liverpool named pizza capital of UK - here are the eight best takeaway Pizza places in the city

Liverpool has an abundance of pizza places, here are eight of the best for delivery and takeaway.

Since the Neapolitan-style pizza was first created in Naples, Italy, in the 1800s the delicious cuisine has gone on to take the world by storm. It's certainly a serious business in Liverpool - the city has just been crowned the pizza takeaway capital of the UK in a new study.

The survey, conducted on behalf of Betway, ranked cities and towns based on a number of factors, including the amount of pizzerias per population and the average cost of a pizza. Liverpool came in at number one, with 533 options and the cheapest average price of £5.88 per pizza.

Preston and Nottingham followed in second and third respectively with the cost of a pizza at just under £9.00 on average. The data shows Luton is the most expensive location for a pizza at £13.32 on average – two times more expensive than Liverpool. 

With Liverpool taking the pizza crown and National Pizza Day on Friday 9 February we have picked out eight of the best places to grab a takeaway pizza by combining Google Reviews from customers and food hygiene ratings from the Food Standards Agency.

Each venue has at least 150 reviews, 4.3 stars or more on Google and a five star rating from health inspectors. So, from American Pizza Slice to Rudy’s, here are eight of the best* pizza joints in Liverpool in alphabetical order.
