Where To Find The Best Pizza In Bangkok

No matter where you are in the world, or how good the local cuisine is, sometimes you just crave a good slice (or six) of pizza.

So, where’s the best pizza in Bangkok then?

This city is famous for its incredible array of Thai food, but it’s also well known for having some of the most amazing international cuisine in the world — including pizza.

If you fancy a slice or two of Italian comfort, here’s where to find the best pizza restaurants in Bangkok…

The Best Pizza In Bangkok

Peppina

Peppina are in pursuit of pizza perfection, and their tasty Neapolitan pizzas come pretty damn close.

With four different locations spread around Bangkok — including two in the Sukhumvit area — a Peppina pizza is never too far away.

Their restaurants have got a social and energetic vibe but the real star of the show is the pizza itself: artisanal pizza using pillowy, soft dough to an authentic Neapolitan recipe — they’ve even flown in a genuine pizza oven from Italy to add that extra smoky flavor.

Elegant pizzas are topped with juicy Italian tomatoes and imported cheeses, then cooked at a high temperature to give them satisfying crunch. Toppings include a variety of quality cured meats shipped over from Italy, fresh artichokes, mushrooms and olives, and seafood.

For a taste of something truly original, try the ‘Omaggio a Bangkok’ – a fusion of buffalo mozzarella with Thai flavours of coconut, tiger prawns, grated lime, fresh chili and oyster sauce.

Alternatively, you could try a deep fried pizza, stuffed with Stracciatella cheese, peas, lardons and baked onion.

Home delivery is also available.

Pizza Mania

To experience perhaps the most faithful reproduction of New York pizza in Asia, all it takes is a phone call (or an online order).

Pizza Mania is based on Sukhumvit Soi 23, but thankfully also delivers to zones elsewhere in the city, including Ratchathewi, Khlong Toei, Lumphini, and Sathorn among others.

There’s a wide choice of classic pizzas on offer from classic cheese to a Seafood Deluxe with tomato sauce, mozzarella, prawns, NZ green mussels, calamari, and garlic, to a classically Italian Parmigiana, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil, grilled eggplant, and Grana Padano cheese.

Perhaps the best thing about Pizza Mania though, is the ‘build your own’ pizza option. Choose between a 12” Wood-Fired, 18” New York style, and 8″x10″ Detroit style base, select cheese, sauce and cooking time options, and then go crazy with over 70 different toppings to customise your pizza just the way you want it.

Pizza Mania is a delivery only service, although you can order and pick-up at their hole-in-the-wall location if you fancy.

Pala Pizza

With a tempting and diverse assortment of antipasti, meat and fish dishes, pastas and risottos, delicious desserts and genuine Italian wines — not to mention the pizzas — Pala Pizza, next to Sukhumvit MRT, is one of the most popular Italians in Bangkok.

This Bangkok pizzeria has a casual, laid back atmosphere, and what makes it so unique is that it sells tasty Roman style, rectangular pizza — by the slice.

These flavorful pizzas have a thicker and firmer dough base than other pizza styles, and the filling slices come cut up and ready to be shared.

Thanks to the super fresh ingredients and a team of talented chefs, the food here is excellent.

Gourmet pizzas are a mighty fifty centimeters long, and feature delicacies such as Mortadella ham, ricotta cheese and pistachios, and Gorgonzola, walnuts and honey.

Regular pizzas can be ordered by slice, by half meter, or in whopping one meter lengths.

Eat in, swing by the restaurant to grab a slice or two as takeout, or have pizza delivered to your door.

Bella Napoli

Stepping into Bella Napoli feels like setting foot in a genuine Italian family restaurant in the heart of Naples.

The warm, rustic atmosphere is just right for experiencing some of the best Bangkok pizza.

Pizzas are wood fired in the Neapolitan tradition with a thin, crispy base, and only the finest ingredients are used.

Toppings are kept simple, which is perfect for letting the delectable flavors shine through. Italian charcuterie, Provola cheese fresh from Naples, piquant rocket leaves, basil, mushrooms and a well balanced tomato sauce are just some of the choices available.

Prices are reasonable and the service is good. It can get busy, but there are plenty of tables.

Il Bolognese

In a homely setting in a quiet soi on Sathorn, Il Bolognese oozes charm, and the Italian food here is some of the best in Bangkok.

The cuisine is inspired by traditional trattoria cooking in the city of Bologna in northern Italy, and is of an incredibly high standard. The aim of the team at Il Bolognese is to offer a truly authentic Italian dining experience, and restaurant guests can expect sizeable servings of pizza made with quality imported ingredients.

There’s a standard pizza menu for the more traditional offerings like Margherita and Hawaiian, as well as a special pizza menu featuring an artisanal dough which the chef team take 3 days to prepare.

Other dishes from the a la carte menu such as pies and pastas are equally good.

Pizza Massilia

Popular Pizza Massilia has two different restaurant locations in Bangkok. The first being an open air affair in Soi Sala Daeng with a hip, quirky style where you’ll often find DJs spinning the latest tunes. The second location is a vast, glitzy restaurant at 15/1 Soi Ruam Rudee in Lumpini, decorated with chandeliers, parquet flooring and rococo style wallpaper.

Make no mistake, this is high end, gourmet pizza in Bangkok.

The cooking style is influenced by the Italian community in Marseille (think Italian with a twist of French fusion).

Pizza bases are left to rise for 72 hours, leaving them light as air. Exotic toppings such as sea urchin, yellow tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella from Salerno, dry-cured Culatello and basil are then liberally scattered over the base. The pizzas are then fired in imported Italian wood ovens and lightly charred.

And for some extra good news, Pizza Massilia also has a touring pizza truck based out of Silom which will be coming soon to a soi near you.

Hot Wheels

When you need your pizza in a hurry, Hot Wheels has got the speediest pizza in town. The owners of this fabulous little food truck based in Thonglor have a passion for quality Neapolitan pizza.

Their chefs are trained in the arts of Napoli pizza making, using recipes handed down through several generations, and using only 100% Italian ingredients alongside locally sourced fresh vegetables — there’s even a real Italian wood burning oven installed in the truck.

There are eight different simple but tasty pizzas to choose from, all with a deliciously thin, airy and crispy crust (thanks to the artisanal dough that takes 55 hours to gently rise).

If none of those appeal, you’re welcome to create your own combination of toppings to make your pizza just how you like it.

Menu highlights include ‘Meat Me’ – spicy salami, cotto ham and sausage, and the smoked salmon pizza with red onions, capers and dill.

Hot Wheels is delivery only.

Sfizio

Sfizio is a restaurant dedicated to creating Italian food with authentic flavors in a convivial family atmosphere, and it presents a scrumptious selection of favorites freshly handmade each day.

The restaurant is modern and unpretentious. All the dishes here are hearty and flavorful.

Sfizio is located on Asoke Road in central Bangkok just a short stroll from BTS Asoke station. If you fancy taking a taste of Italy home with you, there’s also a deli counter offering a fantastic selection of meats and cheeses and other Italian delicacies.
