6 of the best pizza kits for nationwide delivery

Like all hospitality businesses, pizza restaurants had to adapt fast to survive the three nationwide lockdowns the last few years have thrown at us.

From frying pan pizza kits and home deliveries of fresh dough, toppings and instructions, to par-baked woodfired pizzas that just need a few minutes in a domestic oven, they’ve thought of it all. We felt it only right we pay our respects to the best of the pizza kits available nationwide here.

6 of the best pizza kits for nationwide delivery

Passo To Go pizza kits

Passo opened in 2017 in Shoreditch, serving a menu of house-made pasta and pizza. Their Passo To Go kits are available in four varieties or there’s an option to Build Your Own and choose toppings yourself. Pizzas can be cooked in a frying pan, and finished off under the grill, with instructions being easy-to-follow and ingredients well labelled. Kits are available for 2 or 4 people, and, unlike a Deliveroo order, you can guarantee these are going to be piping hot. Topping options are well thought-out, with the spiced salami option offering generous quantities, and the dough itself is some of the best we tried from a kit, soft, chewy and full of flavour. Available from Passo To Go (From £16).

Pizza Pilgrims Pizza in the Post

Pizza Pilgrims’ first restaurant opened in 2012, and they have been moving and shaking ever since. Their lockdown offering of frying pan pizzas might sound unusual, but this kit seriously delivers. Choose from a variety of flavours (including dairy free and gluten free options) and your kit will include all the ingredients used in the Pizza Pilgrims pizzerias. We tried out the double pepperoni and spicy honey kit and the flavour combination of salty chorizo with sweet, fiery honey was to die for. The kit makes two generously-sized pizzas and the instructions inside couldn’t be easier to follow, with your pizzas taking about 15 minutes from start to finish. If you don’t have two large frying pans, you can simply cook one pizza at a time, and even keep one warm on the bottom shelf of your oven, whilst you prepare the second. Or you know, eat as you go… Available from Pizza Pilgrims (starting from £14.50 for two pizzas, plus delivery).

Homeslice “Take & Bake” mealkits

Homeslice began with a portable, hand-built wood-fire oven back in 2011. Since then, their signature pillowy dough and toppings have seen them grow to a six restaurant group. The at-home kits deliver your own bake-at-home experience. And the best part is, two pizzas plus toppings come to less than twenty quid – a steal! We tried out two of their fresh pizzas – vegan mushroom and n’duja with broccoli. Each had its own topping to add after cooking – soy truffle plus pumpkin seeds for the mushroom, and chilli oil for the n’duja. The pizzas were super-crisp on cooking, much better than a classic takeaway option, with really fresh ingredients. Available from Plateaway (£17.50-19 for 2 pizzas).

Franco Manca

The one that started it all. Dare we say the original? Since 2008 in Brixton Market, Franco Manca have been slinging sourdough pizzas with a simple menu using quality ingredients. In lockdown their pizza kits are available with Great Food 2 U, with 4 pizzas costing only £25 – these are prices we’ve come to know and love from the restaurants. We tried the chorizo kit, which impressed – the dough being super fresh and the toppings were top quality. Like Pizza Pilgrims, Franco Manca also recommend the frying pan method. We found their video tutorial super useful! Available from Great Food 2 U (Starting from £12.50 for two pizzas).

Pizza Punks

Pizza Punks began in Glasgow in 2016, and has since grown to open branches in Northern Ireland and England. They have two main offerings when it comes to at-home pizzas, their Bake At Home option, and their Punk It Up DoughIY kit. We tried the Punk It Up DoughIY kit, which include all fresh ingredients in neat pots – even a dusting of flour to shape the pizzas on. The dough is a sourdough base, proofed for 48 hours, with a fresh tomato and basil sauce that smells like you’ve popped to Naples for the evening, plus mozzarella (or choose vegan cheese), then four toppings of choice from a selection of 25. Pizza Punks also deliver to Highlands and Islands – so everybody can try a slice. Available from Pizza Punks (£16), and Bake at Home (from £6).

Ooni Spice Lover’s Kit

For the best pizza dough, you can’t beat Ooni’s kits. The all-important Mutti tomatoes, and an array of toppings such as ‘nduja, fior di latte and spicy honey (trust us this stuff is extraordinary) feature here. Neatly packaged, these kits had us eating delicious, fresh pizzas in less than 20 minutes! We love them because the dough balls can be frozen so you’ll have pizzas on arrival and then plenty to come in the future too! (24 balls are included). Available from Ooni (£72.60).
