Shortlist's Search for the UK's Best Pizza

Gusto Didsbury, Manchester

Address: 756 Wilmslow Rd, Didsbury M20 2DW

Pizza of choice: Caprino

Toppings: Goat's cheese, pine nuts, caramelised onions, roasted red peppers, pesto, mozzarella and rocket

Price: £10.25

Thoughts: Should you know your Latin, you'll know the name Gusto originates from the Latin word for tasting, and should you know this Mancunion haunt, sat amid the hustle and bustle of Manchester's Didsbury Village, you'll know it more than lives up to the name hanging above the door. First introductions - large clay oven, open kitchen, friendly staff, solid selection of pizzas for both meat eaters and vegetarians - were strong. We selected the Caprino, which offered a real variety of taste: the sweet caramelised onions, crunchy pine nuts and tangy goat's cheese combined superbly on top of a base which would have been perfect had it not been slightly too moist in the centre. Try washing it down with a few cold cocktails, like the non-alcoholic (a direct result of too much booze over the summer) Honey Dew, with its heady mix of ginger, lime and fresh mint sure to help make room for dessert. And as far as that's concerned, the espresso-covered affogato is an absolute treat.

Star rating: ★★★★✰
