February 9 marks a beloved occasion for food enthusiasts across the United Kingdom – National Pizza Day.

This annual celebration pays homage to one of the nation's favourite comfort foods and to pay proper tribute to the Italian classic, the News & Star has put together a list of some top places in Carlisle for pizza. 

Romano's Pizza, Market Hall

The Market Hall pizzeria, which opened back in 2014, is home to some of the tastiest pizza in Carlisle.  They offer traditional Italian recipes which have been passed down from generation to generation. Their hand-stretched pizzas are freshly made, using the finest Italian ingredients, including fresh Italian meats. 

Casa Romana, Warwick Road

The hugely popular Italian restaurant is one of Carlisle's, and Grace Dent's, favourites. Their hand-stretched pizzas, which come with a huge variety of topping options, are some of the best in the city.

Sage & Vine, The Crescent

A new option for the people of Carlisle to try is Sage & Vine, which opened next to La Mezzaluna on The Crescent earlier this month. Their wood-fired oven ensures that pizza is served Neapolitan style, with a beautiful, fluffy crust that is ready in minutes. 

Pizza Express, Lowther Street

Sometimes you can't beat a simple Pizza Express pizza. The restaurant always delivers and you're guaranteed a nice meal, at a price that is cheaper than most takeaway options in the area.

Sannas, Lowther Street

The Sardinian-Italian restaurant offers a wide selection of authentic pizzas, including meaty, seafood, spicy and vegetarian options. It has been a popular option in the border city since opening in 2012. 

Amatos, Abbey Street

Amatos is an unfussy, sparsely decorated stop for Italian and Sicilian fare in Carlisle, and pizza is unsurprisingly one of the top options on the menu.

Francos, Market Street

Franco's Ristorante is a step off the pavement at the head of the town centre square of Carlisle. They serve a wide range of pizzas in their uniquely medieval building, using the finest ingredients sourced both locally and imported from Italy.

These are some options, but there are others. Where have we missed? Name your favourites below...
