“Whether it’s a simple cheese pizza or a sausage pie, the New York-style pizzas at Epolito’s are a treat, and taste better at home watching a movie with a crisp lager.” — Dan Ahwa, fashion editor
166 Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn

“It's hard to go past a slice of Sal's pizza with its crispy thin New York crust. My favourite is their margherita pizza with plenty of parmesan, chilli flakes and herbs from the complimentary shakers.” — Rosie Kelway, writer
Various locations, Auckland

Farina does fantastic pizza whether you're eating in or out. All the flavours are authentic and incredible, though it's hard to beat the pork and fennel sausage.” — Jesse Mulligan, eating out editor

That's Amore is tucked away in Courthouse Lane just off High St, it’s so cosy you almost forget you’re in Auckland. I love that the pizzas have such a thin base and aren’t overloaded with toppings — my favourite is the classic margherita.” — Danielle Clausen, editorial assistant
2m/1 Courthouse Ln, Auckland City

Archie’s Pizzeria in Newmarket does a mean Alla Capricciosa. On a crispy, semi-charred base you get the ultimate Italian flavour combo of salami, olives, capsicum, anchovies, tomato, mozzarella and oregano. The cosy atmosphere makes it worth dining in for.” – Rebecca Barry Hill, writer
63 Davis Cres, Newmarket

"The pizzas from Al Forno in Takapuna are crisp-bottomed and hearty, with the busy local restaurant also fielding plenty of takeaway orders. I like the flavour balance of the potato and chorizo one, it's satisfying and filling." — Janetta Mackay, beauty editor
34 Anzac St, Takapuna
