Little Pyg

By Katy Thornton

We’re all going to want a pizza this now.

Dublin restaurant Little Pyg has been named the best pizzeria in Ireland and the 27th best pizzeria in Europe at the 50 Top Pizza Europa Awards, which were held in Barcelona this week.

Little Pyg is the only pizzeria in Ireland that serves Michelin Guide pizzas, so its winning of these awards should come as no surprise.

After accepting the accolades, Little Pyg’s owner Paul McGlade Jnr said in a statement:

“It’s a tremendous honour to receive this prestigious award and a testament to the dedication of our team that work so hard to create the best pizzas in Ireland, every day. I’m delighted for the team as a lot of hard work and dedication has happened over the last three years since we launched Little Pyg. Winning this Best in Ireland award, judged by some of Italy’s top food critics, means so much to us.

“The key to our pizza success is simple: we import the best produce from Italy and are very passionate about what we do. We also offer unbeatable prices for the quality of food we offer.”

Little Pyg does two for €30 pizzas on a daily basis, and you can book a table on its website right here.

The Dough Bros, based in Galway, also got an honourable mention as an excellent pizzeria in Ireland. The restaurant has previously been honoured by the awards, being named the 21st best pizza in Europe back in 2020.
