Gigi Pizzeria

This South King Street pizzeria is doing things by the book, and by that we mean by the incredibly specific regulations from the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, who are responsible for making sure pizze are hand-kneaded, traditionally topped and wood-fired, Napoli-style. There’s a good inch of flame-kissed crust that provides the structural integrity to your slice, while the centre remains soft enough that if you wanted to fold the whole thing up in quarters and eat it like a quadruple-decker sandwich, you could. The gamberi e rucola (prawn and rocket) is a cheese-free pizza of rosy prawns, cherry tomatoes, chilli and parsley, all hidden under a crown of peppery rocket leaves. The Napoli is a mozzarella-topped flavour frisbee sporting whole anchovies, black olives, garlic, oregano and cherry tomatoes. Gigi is a sizeable joint and it’s within dangerously short walking distance of Earl’s Juke Joint, the Townie and the Midnight Special. Head here for a meal first or come late in the night to get back on 
track after a few too many instead-of-dinner
