Calling all pizza lovers: These are the 8 must-visit pizza restaurants across India

Is there possibly anyone who doesn’t like pizza? The crispy thin crust, the smoky toppings, and the delicious cheesy pull; pizza is that one dish that none of us can ever get enough of. This is why I have compiled a list of the best pizza places across India that you must visit at least once in your lifetime.

Chianti, Bangalore

Chianti is one of the most popular pizza-serving restaurants in Bangalore, mostly known for its authentic Italian flavors. The romantic setting, upbeat music, and blissful vibe make it the go-to place for couples to hang out. For a few, it might seem noisy, expensive, and small, but for the food we get, it’s completely worthwhile. When here, red wine with Quattro Formaggi pizza shouldn’t be missed.

1441 Pizzeria, Mumbai

If you’re in a mood to bake a pizza of your own, with toppings and base of your preference, head to 1441 Pizzeria. This Mumbai-based outlet is relatively new in the city and yet, it has managed to gain a lot of popularity, especially amongst youngsters who flock here in groups. The best part – there’s an option to choose from over 50 plus toppings and 7 variants of cheese, all sourced exclusively. At 1441, do try Chicken Mexicana pizza, Garlic Bread, and Garden Fresh pizza.

Fire and Ice Pizzeria, Kolkata

Contrasting to its name, this pizzeria is one of the best places to have Italian cuisine. Fire and Ice is especially known to serve the best wood-fired pizza that has managed to leave all its visitors craving for more. Plus, the ambiance, food quality, and service are top-notch, which makes a visit to the eatery worthwhile. A few of the things to try here are Penne Arabiata pasta, Fire of Bengal, and Focaccia with Melted Mozzarella Cheese.

The Fat Boy, Chennai

The Fat Boy has been titled as the paradise for pizza lovers, owing to its quality, quantity, authenticity, and variety. Their appetizers and beverages rightly complement their main course menu. Some of the popular dishes that are highly coveted by foodies and critics alike include Buffalo Chicken Wings, Happy Boy pizza, Stuffed Mushrooms, and Pesto pizza.

Baking Bad, New Delhi

With three outlets in Vasant Kunj, Malviya Nagar, and Greater Kailash, Baking Bad has gained a repute for serving the most impressive customizable pizzas. If you don’t wish to order a pizza, opt for their pasta, which is said to be equally good. At Baking Bad, you cannot miss trying their Heisenberg pizza, Senorita pizza, and Wild Veg pizza.

RP’s Pizzeria, Ahmedabad

Ever wondered where the popular Bahubali pizza originated from? Right from an eatery of Ahmedabad – the RP’s Pizzeria. Would you ever give a humongous pizza, as large as an 18 to 25 inch, a try? If yes, you must visit this place and dive into trying their Evergreen pizza, Seven Cheese pizza, and Pesto Basilico.

The Greedy Man Pizzeria, Pune

The pizzas from The Greedy Man Pizzeria have been winning hearts since its inception. Fresh out of the oven, crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside, their Thin Crust Pizza Pepperoni and Quattro Formagio should be in your must-have list. The ambiance is homely and pleasant, and service top-notch!

Zozoz Pizzeria, Hyderabad

Tucked away in Jubilee Hills, this pizzeria is so green that you might want to spend your evenings with a book, here. Of course, while polishing down slices of pizza. The pizzas are thin crust, and with each bite, you will find a little bit of Rome in it. Go over to the counter where the nice peeps help you choose the pizza of your choice, or pick your own toppings. Zozoz Classic Pepperoni and Magia Fungi are my personal favourites.
