Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound so threatening. What I really meant was, Anyone want a pizza? Me.
And really, so do you. At any given moment of any given day, if we’re being real. If you wanted a slice for each meal, you could, in theory, go on an endless mission around Glasgow’s sea of pizza shops and probably never get bored. But if you just fancy splashing out some dough on some dough, check out these brilliant Glasgow pizza restaurants we’ve picked out, offering some of the best food in the city. Crusts ahoy!
The mother of all Napolitana Glasgow pizza. That doughy dream of a pizza must have something added that lures us back each time. We don’t need to know what it is, just keep ’em coming! Woodfired to perfection, with fresh ingredients hugging the base of the best dough in the city, there’s a reason Paesano is one of the best places to eat in Glasgow.

Another wood-fired, Naples-meets-Glasgow option. Mozza has a large menu with plenty of mouth-watering choices. Italian sausage with mashed potato and black pepper mayo is one of many intriguing favourites among locals. You can even pick “Lucky 13: Mozza Dare” on their menu for a cheeky risk. Mozza’s chefs will whip up a special pizza of their choosing, which will even be kept secret from servers. Hey, who doesn’t like surprises?

Attention, cheese-lovers! Get over to Sarti immediately and order the dolce vita. Slathered in mozzarella and, wait for it, gorgonzola, it’s enough to send many into a dairy overdrive. If you have a cheese limit, then no sweat. Go for a lovely, cheeseless seafood supreme pizza called the viareggina, or take a punt on the Tuscan sausage and spinach nonno pietro. Meanwhile, if you’re somehow not in the mood for pizza, Sarti also serve some of the best Italian food in Glasgow, including pasta and other traditional dishes.

“Punk up your pizza. Unlimited toppings. One set price.” That’s pretty much all you need to know. Oh, and they’re pretty darn good. These anarchic crusts sure hit the spot for a decent price. This is definitely what The Clash and Sex Pistols were dreaming up, aye?
90 St Vincent Street, G2 5UB
Another Glasgow pizza heavyweight. Baffo has garnered significant appraisal for its excellent West End location and devilishly tasty “pizza al metro”. This is a rectangular approach to baking the heavenly dough and, friends, it absolutely slaps. However, rectangular, circular, thick, thin, cheesy, cheeseless — everything you could think of is available at Baffo. You can even take on the half-metre challenge and become Glasgow’s pizza king at Baffo. Fun fact: ‘Baffo’ is Italian for ‘moustache’ – not something you’d usually associate with Glasgow food, but we’re into it!
1377 Argyle Street, G3 8AF
Though this joint’s name rhymes with pizza’s arch-rival, don’t be fooled: there’s no pasta on this menu. Thankfully, some of the finest Glasgow pizza resides within Basta’s walls. They infuse Italian-imported Polselli flour, Strianese tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil with the freshest Scottish produce to craft their pizzas. Alongside their drool-worthy classics, there’s another host of pizzas made for brunch. Think eggs, chorizo, smoked salmon, chilli, and, bravely, baked beans. Actually, don’t think. Just eat.
561 Dumbarton Road, Partick, G11 6HU
A Romana style pizza with its own unique take. Campania-sourced ingredients make for a thin and crispy base with delicate mozzarella. You’re golden once you’ve added the appetising toppings that include pulled pork, ‘nduja sausage, mac ‘n’ cheese, vegan sausage, goat’s cheese and more. Follow the pizza theme during dessert, with some gorgeous mini Nutella calzones to hit the optimum level of dough in your belly.
