Where to find the best pizza in Hong Kong

Thin crust, deep dish, Detroit-style, Neapolitan – the list goes on, but there’s nothing quite like a perfect slice of pizza. It is the Hong Kong spots that are successful.

How fortunate for us that one of the greatest foods known to man is also one of the simplest: dough. Sauce. Cheese. Trims to every heart’s content. When you combine things that are already delicious on their own, you’d think success would be guaranteed – as a common refrain goes, “when it’s good, it’s good, and when it’s bad, it’s good.” is still good enough” – however, the truth is that not all pizza is created equal. And the bad things, well, let’s forget about the bad things.

We are here to talk about the good stuff. Great things, even. It’s the pizzas that make us fight for that last slice. Fat, cheesy, crisp, airy – sometimes all at once. We’ve done the hard work and tested lots – lots – of pizzas in Hong Kong to make sure you only get the best when hunger strikes. With our MMMs Award winners (special thanks to our exclusive sponsor foodpanda) in mind, these are the best pies you can buy in Hong Kong.

According to the people who brought us the CUT Sando Bar, INTERVAL is definitely not a pizzeria.

More pizzas we like:

  • Wildfire Pizza Bar: A mainstay of The Peak and TST’s Avenue of the Stars, this pizzeria recently opened a shop in Wan Chai, and we’re delighted. That little hint of sweetness in the sauce makes all the difference.
  • Honky Tonks Tavern: A favorite of fried chicken connoisseurs, Shady Acres’ Southern-style watering hole also serves up a middling ‘za selection. We love Chef Andy’s ‘White Trash’ pie, with some Dorito dust – even though it’s no longer on the menu, it still pops up every once in a while, so grab it if you can.
  • finished: Part of Hong Kong’s OG Italian-American triumvirate along with Posto Pubblico and Frank’s, Fini’s still serves up a solid pie worthy of the Big Apple – and it’s big, both in size and flavor.
  • Southside Pizza Co.: Johnny Glover from Butcher’s Club and Grégoire Michaud from Bakehouse have teamed up to create the unique dough for these delicious pies to be delivered only. Make a friend at South Horizons or plan a picnic in the park if you must. This pizza is worth the trip.
  • Crabs: From the wit and appetite of cookie master Wil Fang comes Carbs, another worthy restaurant. Located on the ground floor of H Code, you’ll need two hands for these crispy, crunchy square slices, topped off with the curly pep – little cups of greasy goodness. You’ll be full and happy even without ordering the best tater tots in Hong Kong, but you’ve come this far, so why not? For a penny, and all that.
  • Amalfitan: Serving authentic Italian pies in the heart of Wyndham Street and The Pulse, the pizza masters at Amalfitana ensure that every guest leaves happy and full, with a delicious selection of cocktails to ease an evening or day out. the beach from there.
  • Ciao Chow: A perennial California Tower favorite for first dates and casual outings, don’t sleep on the pies. Immerse yourself in a real Neapolitan and for a brief and beautiful moment even LKF can feel like southern Italy.
  • Gustav: Sure, we can’t travel, but sharing a pair of pies at Gustaci, neatly tucked away in Central’s PMQ, feels like a Mediterranean getaway in itself. And on the back patio, gelato in hand? Perfect.
  • barg: Super thin and crispy – but most importantly, tasty – check out Barg for a pizza experience very unique to what you’ll find across Hong Kong. The pies aren’t large so you’ll want to order two. Or three. Or four. They are good, okay? And we don’t judge.
  • Little Napoli: Opened in late 2021, Little Napoli has given the good people of Happy Valley reason to be even happier. Every pie at Little Napoli is made to order – hot, fresh and absolutely delicious. The space is tiny so you’ll have to pack your pizza, but if you’re friendly with the chef he might even let you have a glass of limoncello for the road.
