Artisan sourdough, well-seasoned tomato and mozzarella bases and premium toppings – Bangkok has developed a great pizza scene, ranging from pop-ups to fine dining venues. Whether you are looking for authentic Italian fare, imported cheese or crispy crusts, our list of Bangkok’s best pizza places has got you covered.
Il Bolognese draws inspiration from the Italian city of Bologna, bringing authentic Italian pizzas, pastas, salads and seafood dishes to the Asian capital. The charming restaurant has set up its quarters in a soi close to Sathorn and features rustic walls, warm tones and traditional Italian accents, creating a balance between a laid-back eatery and an upscale dining experience. Next to a marvelously decorated dining room, visitors will find a wood-fired pizza oven as well as a large greenhouse. The professional staff serve tasty dishes with undiluted flavors made from premium ingredients; the friendly manager is known to frequently check the satisfaction of his customers personally. Il Bolognese offers two pizza menus, one featuring classic options such as Margherita and a special menu with pizzas made from artisanal dough. Toppings include imported buffalo mozzarella and Italian meats.
Pala Pizza Romana
One of the most popular grab-and-go eateries in the city, Pala Pizza Romana tantalizes passers-by with its delicious ‘pizza al taglio‘, referring to the meter long slabs of dough which are baked to perfection. The restaurant does not adhere to the popular Neapolitan pizza method, instead it lets its dough rise for much longer (72 hours), which results in crusty bottoms and fluffy tops. Toppings include sharp cheeses, parma ham, mozzarella, artichokes and olives.
