A moment of rarity. This is Noi Quattro (‘Us Four’) and I reckon it serves the best pizza in Manchester. 
Queen Margherita, let’s go. 
Fior Di Latte (mozzarella) - make a point of tasting it on its own. White, creamy, and well-sourced. 
San Marzano pomodori (tomatoes) - wonderful rosso spread neatly and evenly across the base. Yummy. 
Dough - smoky, cautiously charred, and sufficiently salty. This is what stood out most, for me. This is why it’s Manchester’s best. 
This pizza’s quality boasts a striking similarity to Rudy’s, but it’s subtly superior. 
Despite one of them living back in Naples at the moment, I invite @youngandfoodish and @pizzadixit to come to share their opinions. I want to see this place in the next @wheretoeatpizza. 
Ciao.

Gobbled a baby Margherita from @proovepizza at Manchester Pride 2018. 
It's not one of Manchester's best, though. Tomato sauce a little too salty, with the dough game on the gummy side. The mozzarella is the selling point here.

Panzerotti are basically golden fried pockets of dough from Puglia. Luca from @fritto_uk offers these up at @grubmcr (he’s mostly found in Liverpool) and they are simply amazing. Pictured is The Classico - tomato sauce, mozzarella, parmigiano, and fresh basil. This blends the foundational flavours (and colours) of the Pizza Margherita with wonderful intimacy; scroll right to see this in action. 
Scroll right again for the mozzarella sticks I scooped up. Pair them with a good beer.

I was elated to see my fellow reviewer, @pizzadixit rank @plymcr as the second best pizza in Manchester (because it is). Glare at my Portobello - fior di latte (mozzarella), portobello mushrooms, truffle and garlic oil. This is a no bullshit pizza; it’s a Margherita with an earthy kick. 
When I see pizza bloggers venture up North to see its pizza game, I get all happy. So this a homage to pizza DIXIT. Brighton, Barcelona, Brussels, Krakow, Paris, Tokyo - he’s reviewed them all. Try going on holiday and eating shit pizza, because now you have less of an excuse. 
For Manchester readers: look out for @noiquattrouk. I’m eager to review this joint.

Massive shoutout to @wandercrust_ldn for winning this year's London Pizza Festival. Apparently they had a close call with Heston Blumenthai's, @theperfectionistscafe. 
Big up to all the other participants: @santamariapizza, @motherlondon, @haicenato, and 'O ver. 
Il maestro pizzaiolo, @sorbillo even popped in. This is the quality of a @youngandfoodish creation. 
Love, love, love.

Naples, Rome, and my city, London -  @fresco_napoli dishes up at @mercatometropolitano. Pizza Napoletena varies on so, so many levels; that's what keeps me tasting. 
This is the Margherita Verace (the 'real Margherita'). Okay, so, dough: lacking in saltiness and slightly gummy, but solid charring; tomato sauce: overly salty, but evenly-dispensed across the base; mozzarella di bufala: snow white, milky, melty, milky, and alive (perfetto). Although I've simplistically grouped this review into 3 parts, I've never tasted a pizza like this. The choice of ingredients producer, or the skill and experience of the pizzaiolo. It all matters, yet we don't see it. 
Variation.

Colours, flavours, design - @plymcr is my second favourite pizzeria in Manchester.

Pictured is The Asparagus - fior di latte (mozzarella), asparagus, ricotta, parsley, garlic, and lemon. This is another example of a carefully and creatively-crafted bianca pizza. It is bright, zesty, herby, creamy, and clean. Picture yourself eating this in, say, little Sorrento in summertime. Beautiful.

The Affumicata from the magnificent @rudyspizzamcr is my favourite Pizza Bianca ('White Pizza') - smoked mozzarella, friarielli, E.V olive oil, chilli flakes, and kalamata olives.

These toppings sit comfortably on dryer doughy terrain, but that's why we can have fun with this pizza. The absence of tomato sauce provides us with the ability to appreciate the combination of the earthy friarielli, bitter olives, and the oily, smoky mozzarella. Basically, it made me happy.

I trust Rudy's - it's my Manchester pizza-go. In fact, it's one of my favourite in the UK. You might have to brace a super long line, though.

Big up to my work lot for this cosy Monday visit!

Holloway Road's, Zia Lucia plays a strong dough game. There are 4 types: traditional. whotemeal, gluten-free, and vegetable charcoal. Take your eyes back to the pictured pizza - I choose the vegetable charcoal. Pizza nero ("black pizza") swiftly ticks the majestic marketing box; apparently it possesses otherworldly health benefits too, but whatever, what is this dough like? Upon first bite, you'll note its lightness - you'll rarely chew and digest pizza this easily. Further, the charcoal gives the dough a sterner, more bodied taste, which is why I recommend the (pictured) Ortolana (tomato sauce, mozarella, courgettes, aubergines, peppers) because it strikes contrast with the sweetness of the vegetables. In conclusion, it doesn't beat your average Pizza Napoletana dough in terms of taste, but it provides a neat solution to what other doughs can do to your poor tummy. 
Zia Lucia source their ingredients well. I like their service too. However, their mozzarella game could be stronger. Pay them a visit and form your own view, though!

I ordered my first ever Neapolitan Pizza from @pizzapilgrims - it was a Bufalina, and it was fucking tasty. This was back in 2014 when the 2 pilgrim brothers, James and Thom, boasted their cute Dean Street location smack bang in bustling Soho. Come 2017 and there are 7 - pictured is their newest in West India Quay. Dear London, you are a beautiful and unlimitedly ambitious food host, thanks for that. 
Scroll to this post's 3rd picture and gawk at The Burrata Special with pesto and yellow datterini tomatoes (just like dates, right?). Snap one up quick, though, it's the final weekend they're on!

Two Sundays ago I ventured down to Wandsworth to try @carmine_alfredo's Pizza Napoletana - I spent hours sitting in the sun with them - talking pizza passion, their business ambitions, and generally just having a laugh. 
Carmine & Alfredo are two solid friends from Caserta (north of Napoli) armed with one of @johnnypizzaportafogliotakeue's wood-fired ovens seamlessly mounted to an ape. Their home base is currently 1 Chapel Yard in Wandsworth. Quirky Ant's @blackchapelcoffee sits to the opposite, and bang, their beautiful little community is constructed. 
Everything is sourced meticulously, whether that be pomodorino del piennolo (piennolo tomatoes from Mount Vesuvius) or sale marino dell'adriatico (Adriatic sea salt). The former makes for a textured tomato base which is beautifully rich. 
Whether you're a topping minimalist or mentalist, you'll notice that the pizza's dough (Molino laquone "00") boasts a playful bounciness to its base and crust. Your hands and mouth will thank you, for that, trust me. 
Finally, let’s play a game: take the trip to visit Carmine & Alfredo and try to spot a passerby who doesn’t stop for a smile and a chat – you’ll lose. One particularly heartwarming (pictured) moment was when a local Italian man gifted Carmine homegrown basil with his two little girls, who gave roses. They must be doing something right, eh? 
Carmine, Alfredo – I wish you only the best in your business ventures. Or is that too formal? Probably. I’ll see you both very soon for a pizza jam. Ciao raga!

@wheretoeatpizza - you need to check this place out!

I wanted to like this joint more - great location and solid interior. This is the Bufalina pizza. The dough was peculiarly pale, cardboard-textured, and bland. It's also odd that the buffalo mozzarella was accompanied by ordinary cow's milk mozzarella - this distracts from the former's higher quality and taste. Tomato sauce game was decent, though.
