Vietnamese food is delicious, but sometimes you just want to stuff your face with all the greasy cheese and crust your body can handle. Luckily for you, Ho Chi Minh City is home to some damn good pizza. Here are the best.
Pizza 4P’s is where luxury meets your favourite dish. Their philosophy is by making people happy with delicious pizza, they’re doing their part to make the world a better place. They make their own cheese in Dalat, and many of their menu options feature unique local flavours. They’ve expanded numerous times, but you’ll probably still need a reservation. It’s no secret among expats and locals alike that this place is very good.
Not many pizza places can boast of prestigious Italian awards, but welcome to the home of Manuel Reale, Pizza Master chef and winner of the World Championship Pizza in Parma 2017. They have your standard pepperoni or margherita, but for something special, try something like their crudo di parma, or paesana — or just go back again and again to try them all. Pendolasco has many repeat customers.
For American-style pizza, Espy pizza is the place to go. They have slices ready to eat, or you can get your own pizza to help out with your hangover from your night out at nearby Bui Vien Street. Pretty much all the places in this article make Italian-style pizza, but sometimes you just want a slice loaded with greasy cheese and dough. Let Espy scratch your itch.
It’s wonderful how much flavour and fun this restaurant packs into a small space. The staff are friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to help you enjoy your meal.
If you’re in the backpackers’ area of District 1 and have no desire to stray too far to get some pizza, then welcome to Vittorio. Besides their ideal location, they also have a varied menu for anyone not quite as excited about good pizza as you are. At least you’ll have more for yourself.
The name says it all. Not quite a bar, but definitely a pizzeria. Try some of their unique creations, like the Saigon Heat, or the Banh Mi Pizza. They also have craft beers for you to enjoy with your meal, which is nice.
As you would guess, this place is owned by a man named Oliver. He’s passionate about pizza and loves to chat with customers. The pizzas are rectangular and served on wooden planks in the Romana style. Their slogan reads, ‘Slices of Happiness.’ We agree.
