Sometimes nothing hits the spot like a really good pizza.

Toppings may be a divisive subject (olives or no olives, anchovies or not?) but pizza is a unifying meal.

We've rounded up the best 11 places in Bournemouth to get a top pizza, according to TripAdvisor.

1) El Murrino in Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth.

Billed as wood fired Italian pizza, the reviews for El Murrino praise the excellent service and 'perfect pizza'. There are choices including white pizza (without tomato sauce) and vegan cheese.

2) Da Mario, Queens Road, Bournemouth

"The best pizza of our lives". Quite a boast but Da Mario is a firm favourite with pizza lovers. All the dough is handmade on the premises and they use their own recipe tomato sauce for an authentic taste.

3) Bournemouth Pizza Company, St Swithun's Road, Bournemouth

With gluten free pizzas and vegan options to boot, Bournemouth Pizza Company is a hidden treasure of pizza. As well as a delicious pizza menu (including a vegan special and classic Hawaiian), there are also dessert calzones containing apple and cinnamon or banana and nutella if you have any room.

4) Bellaggio Pizzeria, Wimborne Road, Winton.

Bellaggio's website says the team wanted to introduce a new style of pizzeria to the Bournemouth area, using a genuine purpose built stone baked pizza oven and traditional hand throwing pizza dough. And with a menu boasting 25 pizzas, there is something to satisfy everyones tastes.

5) The Stable, Westover Road, Bournemouth

Another place which has a special vegan menu is The Stable. On their regular menu, pizzas include a four cheese with Wookey Hole aged cheddar, Dorset Blue Vinney, Billy The Kid goats' cheese cheddar and Ford Farm smoked red cheese; the West Country Porker with Bath Pig chorizo, tomato sauce and mozzarella, topped with peppery rocket and house Dijon dressing and The Durdle Door, which is herb-roasted potato, Dorset Blue Vinney cheese, roasted Spanish onions, fresh spinach, tomato sauce and mozzarella.


6) Zizzi, Richmond Hill, Bournemouth

They may be a chain, but Zizzi is one of the top picks for pizza in Bournemouth. Visitors have been praising the service and excellent food. They offer 'skinny pizzas' made on wholemeal, white & spelt base, served with an Italian naked slaw for under 550 calories. And they do a pizza rustica range (where the base is stretched so it is bigger and crispier) along with their classic menu.


7) Cameron's Eat and Drink, Lansdowne House, Christchurch Road

There is a lot of praise for the pizza at Cameron's, which has a wide and varied food menu. Their pizzas include Hoisin duck, a Spanish flavoured pizza and much more.

8) La Piccola Italia, Holdenhurst Road

The stone baked pizzas at La Piccola Italia are traditional - and look delicious. They have a loyal fan base of customers and it's easy to see why. With a gluten free menu available, the restaurant's menu is mouth watering and they also do pizza bianchi - white pizzas with no tomato base. And they're on Deliveroo! 


9) Frascati Pizzeria, Charminster Road.

The calzones at Frascati look amazing. Genuinely mouthwatering. And they have the reviews to back it up. There is a choice of 11 pizzas, two of which are the calzones. And the options for these include a Calzone Ripieno with  tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, ricotta, salami, ham and pepperoni or a Calzone Vegetariano with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, onion, mushroom, green peppers and olives.

10) Calmaro, Westover Road, Bournemouth

One of the newer places on the block and very convenient for those going to see a show, this place has some great deals for customers wanting a treat. With just eight pizzas on the menu, customers wanting a calzone can change any of them into a folded meal.

11) Pizzeria Via Roma, Christchurch Road, Boscombe

'An authentic Italian', a 'piece of Italy' and 'first class Italian food' are just some of the top accolades for Pizzeria Via Roma. They have a classic menu and a special pizza menu. And all of them look great!
