Cork is officially home to Ireland’s Best Pizza as a local pizzeria nabs the title

Cork’s own Oak Fire Pizza has been named Best Pizza in Ireland at the Deliveroo Restaurant Awards 2024.

Instead of typical Italian toppings, the Oak Fire crew curated a selection that’s unmistakably Cork, from Clonakilty Black Pudding to Toonsbridge Mozzarella.

Cork favourites Oak Fire Pizza, Koto, and Burritos & Blues were all crowned national winners in Irish cuisine categories, after customer votes revealed they come out top for Corkonians. The Best Mexican in Ireland went to Burritos & Blues, while family-run Koto won the award for Best Thai in Ireland.

“It is incredible to have won the Deliveroo award for Best Pizza in Ireland,” said Sarah Loane of Oak Fire Pizza.

“A heartfelt thank you to those who voted for us – your support means everything. We hope to continue to serve award-winning pizza to the communities of Cork for a long time to come.”

This year saw a total of 60 awards up for grabs, including the highly coveted Independent Restaurant of the Year, which was won by Dublin-based Yeeros.

Over 66,000 votes were cast by loyal customers over a two-week period to crown no less than 50 regional cuisine-led winners from Best Thai to Best Burger, Best Pizza, Best Chicken and beyond.
