Ca­nary Wharf Pizza Ex­press Cabot Place East

This stal­wart is one of the older restau­rants in Ca­nary Wharf but en­joys a warm place in our hearts sup­ply­ing con­sis­tently good food at rea­son­able prices. Re­cently it’s launched a Zap­paroli Ro­mana pizza for spring with chicken, nduja sausage, moz­zarella, gar­lic oil and Gran Mi­lano cheese on smokey, creamed corn fin­ished with red Ro­quito pearls and pars­ley. piz­za­ex­

Wild­wood Ju­bilee Place

Stonebaked piz­zas in clas­sic size, cal­zone style or gi­ganti size. It may be lo­cated in a shop­ping mall food court, but there’s some­thing cu­ri­ously sat­is­fy­ing about a slice well slathered from this place. It ven­tures into the realms of hoi sin duck and sausage with caramelised onion piz­zas. wild­woodrestau­

Rocket Churchill Place

This mi­cro chain out­let of­fers a choice of 15 dif­fer­ent stone baked piz­zas priced from £9-£14.50. While some are staid tra­di­tional recipes such as margherita and pep­per­oni hot, Rocket does man­age to blast off the wall ev­ery now and then with the likes of but­ter­fly king prawns and smoked black pud­ding (£12.50). There are also weekly spe­cials such as a top­pings of honey-roast ham and caramelised red onion. rock­e­trestau­

Jamie’s Ital­ian Churchill Place

Bring­ing with it the lilt of an Es­sex ac­cent Jamie’s of­fers a solid in­ter­pre­ta­tion of an Ital­ian res­tau­rant. While per­haps lack­ing the verve and in­de­pen­dent spirit of the likes of Franco Manca and Pizza Pilgrims, it man­ages a de­cent bash at the con­sis­tency and com­fort of Pizza Ex­press. On the menu are six piz­zas in­tro­duced to the menu ear­lier this year with top­pings such as Cob­ble Lane pep­per­oni (known as Gen­naro’s Spicy Sausage, £11.95), West­combe Jacks cheese and black truf­fle. jamieo­

Zizzi West­ferry Cir­cus

With a view of the river, Zizzi of­fers a breath of fresh air if the fumes be­come too much. On a stan­dard chain menu, the place of­fers top­pings such as margherita rus­tica and chicken and pro­sciutto. Ex­pect chain style ef­fi­ciency.

Obica Moz­zarella Bar West Win­ter­gar­den

This re­fined lit­tle is­land of taste be­gan as a stall in the mid­dle of an empty plaza and quickly added a sit-down area with true Ital­ian style. Feels like din­ing in a rail­way sta­tion but that’s not a bad thing for a lunch time. Nduja bur­rata (spread­able sausage) pizza comes in at £14.

East Lon­don Pizza East Shored­itch

Hop on the DLR, trans­fer to the Over­ground and, in next to no time you’ll be fall­ing out of Shored­itch High Street Sta­tion. For­tu­nately Pizza East is close by to pick you up with its in­dus­trial decor, con­fus­ing ar­ray of menus and good by pricey dishes. Go for the white an­chovies, tomato, capers and cream for £13. piz­za­

Voodoo Rays Dal­ston

Voodoo Rays of­fers ab­surdly names dishes – Green Vel­vet, The Meat Is On, Sh­rooms! – not by the pizza, but by gar­gan­tuan the slice. Found at 95 Kings­land High Street it’s a good bet for groups with dif­fer­ing di­etary re­quire­ments (there’s ve­gan). There’s also an agree­able cock­tail bar be­neath.

East Lon­don Liquor Com­pany Bow

Hang on, this is a dis­tillery. Ah, but there’s a res­tau­rant at­tached and a pizza oven. What’s more ELLC serves one of the cheaper cheese and tomato of­fer­ings avail­able in east Lon­don (£7.50) has seat­ing in­doors and out­doors and is ad­ja­cent to the spirit com­pany’s on-site cock­tail bar. east­lon­donliquor­com­
