Pizza Hut Restaurants - Hanover Street.

Pizza Hut is the ideal restaurant to take the family for a pizza, with plenty of choices that everyone will love. The great thing about Pizza Hut is that they are big on flavour but little on price, so you can feed the whole family for less.

Whether you’re a deep pan kind of person or prefer your pizzas to be extra thin and crispy, Pizza Hut’s pizzas, which are always made with fresh ingredients and attention to detail, will have you coming back for more. If you’ve got some room left, there are loads of sweet desserts to tuck into including ice cream from the Ice Cream Station that the kids are bound to love.

Papa John's - Edinburgh - Leith Walk.

If you and the family feel like taking it easy and want to swap dining out for dining in, Papa Johns makes for a great choice if it’s pizza you’re craving.

With over 30 years of experience, you can rest assured that your pizzas are going to be flavoursome. Papa John’s pizzas are always made using fresh ingredients, which is why they’re so hard to resist. In fact, their pizzas are so good that Papa’s Quality Guarantee means you’ll get another pizza for free if you aren’t in love with your first order. We don’t know about you, but taking the restaurant experience in instead of out sounds awfully tempting!

ASK Italian Prima Pizza Prima Pollo e Roquito Pepe

ASK Italian - Edinburgh.

We think an Italian meal done well is pretty much unbeatable, and nowhere does it better than ASK Italian. The ideal venue for catching up with friends, celebrating a big occasion or an anniversary. Whatever you’re up to in Edinburgh, make sure you put some time aside to try this choice for the best Italian restaurants in Edinburgh's city centre.

There’s a pizza at ASK Italian for the whole family. There’s the classic margherita for those wanting to keep it simple, the caprina which is loaded with goat’s cheese and a selection of calzones that are stuffed with plenty of tasty toppings (or fillings). Whatever your preference of pizza, ASK Italian has got it all.

Zizzi pepperoni pizza

Zizzi - Leith.

If you and your family fancy a switch up from the usual pizza flavours you typically see on your standard pizza menu, Zizzi is one of the best pizza restaurants in Edinburgh if you’re looking for something a little different from your pizza. There are pulled pork, spicy ‘nduja, harrisa chicken breast and even more choices to sink your teeth into that you won’t find at every pizza place.

Their rustica-style pizzas are a good size, but calzones are also available if you want to tuck into something packed with flavour. Even if one of your fellow diners would like to opt for a pizza alternative, they won’t be let down by their range of pasta, risotto and seafood choices.
