The 10 best spots for pizza in Bengaluru

It’s always pizza’a’clock if you know where to look. And we’re giving you 10 delicious options to explore in Bengaluru!

A slice of pizza can be a miracle cure to a bad day, or the perfect treat to end a good one. While it’s mostly a simple combination of dough, sauce, and toppings, this is one classic dish that’s spawned debates over centuries. 

The right sauce to crust ratio, the adequate amount of toppings. Even the kind of toppings that are right for pizzas is widely contested (looking at you there, pineapple). So if you find yourself with a pizza craving in Bangalore, here are 10 of the best places you can go to for some warm and delicious slices!

Located within a luxury hotel, this little eatery went the extra mile with a custom built, supersized pizza oven. With carefully crafted wooden logs stacked around the oven, it is capable of dishing out 12 pizzas at a time! The oven has a diameter of around 1.9 metres with in-built double doors so that it can be loaded and emptied from two opposite sides. There’s also a rack inside with a constantly burning wooden log, lending its natural flavour to the pizza.

Launched in 2015, Brik Oven was the first to bring real wood-fired pizza to Bangalore. Whipping up the iconic and original Neapolitan-Style Pizzas, they have a light and crunchy crust that’s thin in the centre and thick and charred around the edges. Using original San Marzano tomatoes, they’re baked to perfection in a rustic wood-fired oven at 400℃ using a traditional recipe from Naples.
