Taipei isn’t a city typically associated with Italian food. In recent years, however, several high-quality pizza joints have popped up here. We list where to grab a slice of the best pizza when you’re in Taiwan’s capital.
Daan district is home to Zoca Pizza, an Italian restaurant that’s perfect for a casual lunch out with friends. The restaurant offers a wide range of pizza toppings, allowing diners to mix and match to build the perfect pie. Service is quick and the restaurant’s wine menu is extensive.Zoca Pizza, No. 149 Linjiang Street, Taipei, Taiwan +886 2 2707 2212
Diners seeking out a healthier approach to pizza should head to Faust Pizza Lounge, a restaurant that provides lighter and less greasy offerings than the average pie. In addition to first-rate pizza, the restaurant’s other passion is German beer, and diners won’t be disappointed in their broad selection of quality brews.Faust, No. 502, Section 4, Ren’ai Rd, Taipei, Taiwan +886 2 2758 7687
For vegan-friendly and vegetarian pizza options, So Free Pizza is a terrific find. With two locations, including one in Wanhua District, Taipei’s oldest area and home to the Longshan Temple, this restaurant specializes in mouthwatering wood-fired pizza. The menu lacks the typical pizza toppings, and instead features more offbeat ingredients such as kimchi, smoked cheese, apple cinnamon, and salty duck eggs.
