30 A SLICE OF HAP­PI­NESS

There are evenings when noth­ing feeds the soul like a pip­ing hot, se­ri­ously cheesy pizza. And lucky Lon­don­ers have a plethora of new pizze­rias to choose from

FOR A TASTE OF TRA­DI­TION The Con­durro fam­ily have been pro­duc­ing two va­ri­eties of pa­per-thin piz­zas – the Margherita and the tomato and an­chovy topped Mari­nara – from L’an­tica Pizze­ria Da Michele’s wood­fired oven in down­town Naples since 1870. Now they have crossed the chan­nel and opened a sib­ling joint in Stoke New­ing­ton (@damichelelon­don). FOR LO­CAL BITES Also freshly ar­rived from Naples is Quartieri ( bot­tom right), trans­posed to Kil­burn by the team be­hind Pizze­ria Tri­anon Vomero (quartieri.co.uk), and cool-but-con­vivial Pizza Brix­ton, brought to south London by Cosimo Grasso. A piz­zaiolo-cum-joiner, he per­son­ally hand­made the ta­bles, hung the lights and now crafts the piz­zas at the venue with his cheer­ful co-cooks (piz­z­abrix­ton.co.uk). Also look out for Yard Sale (above right), which has opened up in Waltham­stow with a fab­u­lously retro diner-in­spired in­te­rior ( yard­salepizza.com). FOR ITAL­IAN GLAM­OUR Miche­lin-starred uber-chef Ja­son Ather­ton has brought pizza up to his Pollen Street So­cial stan­dards with new venue Hai Ce­nato (the Ital­ian for ‘Have you had din­ner?’) in Vic­to­ria. The suave in­te­rior (top) echoes his London Edi­tion restau­rant, Bern­ers Tav­ern, with low light­ing and luxe ma­te­ri­als. The stars, though, are the sour­dough piz­zas, ac­ces­sorised with small plates such as green chilli salsa verde and Cor­nish squid ( haice­nato.co.uk).
