These are some of the best pizza places in Kent

Archant

Whether it’s National Pizza Day or a regular Friday night, pizza is always a good idea. So head to one of these Kent pizzerias for a slice

1. Chapter Sourdough Pizzeria & Bar

11-12 Burgate, Canterbury

With stylish interiors that nod to a rustic Italian pizzeria, Chapter serves sourdough pizzas sprinkled with fresh toppings made before diners’ eyes in the clay oven. There are Italian desserts and cocktails to complement your feast and a bottomless brunch on Saturdays which includes unlimited bellinis, Prosecco or Bloody Mary’s.

What to order: in true Italian style, simple ingredients are combined for tempting creations including a pizza of black pepper salami, tomato, fior di latte and chilli flakes or we love the sound of the ‘salsiccia e friarielli’ with fennel sausage, fior di latte, wild broccoli, chilli and a sprinkling of parmesan.

2. Posillipo

16 The Borough, Canterbury

Alongside an array of classic Neapolitan seafood and pasta dishes, Posillipo (named after a residential quarter of Naples) serves pizzas straight from the oven that are topped with fresh and locally sourced ingredients. There are also Posillipo restaurants in Faversham and Broadstairs.

What to order: seafood lovers need to try a Posillipo pizza made with king prawn, octopus, mussels, clams and squid or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy try a calzone stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella, ham, salami and tomato sauce.

3. Café du Soleil

4-5 Pound Lane, Canterbury

Café du Soleil, situated along the beautiful Stour river on Pound Lane, draws its culinary influences from Mediterranean France and Italy. This includes pizzas made in authentic style in the restaurant’s wood-burning oven with flour imported from Naples.

What to order: inventive toppings include smoky pulled pork with barbecue sauce, mozzarella, red onion confit, tomato and mango salsa or garlic mushrooms with truffle oil, mozzarella, tomato and parsley.

4. Marco Restaurant Delicatessen

143 High Street, Sevenoaks

Husband and wife team Marco and Renata have created a seasonal menu of Italian food at Marco Restaurant Delicatessen in Sevenoaks. Local ingredients are sourced for the diverse menu which includes traditionally prepared pizzas.

What to order: for a hit of spice, try the salsiccia pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, Italian sausage, chilli, red pepper and olives, or the classic Fiorentina with tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh baby spinach and egg in the centre, topped with parmesan cheese.

5. Great British Pizza Co

14A Marine Drive, Margate

If you haven’t tried it yet, where have you been?! Every media outlet is praising the Great British Pizza Co in the cool town of Margate with some saying it’s the “best pizza on the planet”. While this may be somewhat hyperbolic, the pizza certainly has a great reputation with diners for its thin and crispy base topped with simple, well made and locally sourced ingredients.

What to order: although seasonally changing, expect pizzas such as chorizo and chilli or peppers with Kentish goat’s curd and basil. With a round of beers or a carafe of wine, you can enjoy the laid back atmosphere and tropical, neon décor.

6. Follies

133 Sandgate Road, Folkestone

Maximalist interior design greets guests who visit Follies in Folkestone, a restaurant ran by two sisters who gained acclaim through their pop-up pizza stalls a few years ago and have built up a cult following of pizza lovers. The restaurant today serves thin, hand-stretched pizzas with inventive and classic toppings.

What to order: we love the sound of the finocchiona with mozzarella, fennel salami, olives and rocket or the seafood-heavy smoked salmon with mozzarella, garlic prawns and rocket.

7. Il Vesuvio

112 Camden Road, Tunbridge Wells

Family-run Il Vesuvio in Tunbridge Wells evokes the welcoming southern Italian ristorante atmosphere through decades of research into Neapolitan food and tradition. Gather a group of friends and family for a spread of authentic pizzas to share.

What to order: mix and match classic pizzas from the tonno e pomodoro with tuna chunks, black olives, peppers, red onion and garlic oil or the capricciosa with artichokes, cotto ham, spicy salami, mushrooms, olives and garlic oil. Make sure to try a slice of the margherita for a taste of Napoli.

8. Luigi’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

3 The Quay, Sandwich

Situated next to the River Stour in historic Sandwich is Luigi’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria. The rustic décor will perfectly complement your traditional pizza.

What to order: the fruitti di mare pizza comes loaded with clams, mussels, calamari and a king prawn with tomato sauce and garlic. Not a seafood fan? There are plenty of toppings to choose from – all of which are customisable - or opt for a calzone piccante, stuffed with chicken, tomato, roasted aubergines, mozzarella, spicy sausage and parsley.
