The best pizza in Ireland has been named and yeah, we definitely need to try it

Yum.

The best pizza in Ireland has been revealed and yeah, we definitely need to try it.

Fallon & Byrne's head pizza chef, Alessandro Capozzi, recently competed against 500 of the best pizza makers in the world at the Campionato Nazionale DOC.

And not only did he get crowned the Best Pizzaiolo in Ireland, he also placed second in the world. 

The international competition saw over 500 pizza chefs from across Europe, including a strong Irish contingent, the United States, Africa and South America vie for the top prize.

The award is a huge coup for Ireland and an acknowledgement of the incredibly high standard of pizza now available in the country.

The competition is recognised by UNESCO in support of Neopolitan-style pizza, as an important expression of food culture and the definitive version of Italy’s most famous dish.

Even better? You can get the pizzas from Fallon & Byrne dropped delivered right to your door, thanks to the folks at Deliveroo.

They are authentic Pizza Napoletana and created using the fresh ingredients of Fallon & Byrne’s famous Food Hall.

“We all know Fallon & Byrne pizza is delicious, and now it’s officially world class delicious. Truly authentic Italian pizza is an art form that deserves to be eaten, shared and enjoyed by all," Joe Groves at Deliveroo said. “We’re really proud to be able to deliver world class dishes to the homes and offices of Ireland, all thanks to working with the likes of Fallon & Byrne, who are as passionate about great food delivery as we are."
