The Best Pizzerias in Puerto Rico

Picture of Kris Pethick
Updated: 23 January 2018
There’s a lot of travel between Puerto Rico and New York, and that Nuyorican influence is evident in the pizza on the island. Big slices with simple toppings are a mainstay, but you can also find gourmet pizza with toppings such as spinach and mushroom blend, or try something new like a pizza ring. It’s always a good time for pizza, and Puerto Rico has many from which you can choose.
Johnny's Pizza Express

Located on a hillside on Highway 100 in Cabo Rojo, Johnny’s Pizza is a lovely outdoor pizza place with a delightful family atmosphere. Nestled among mango trees, you can order at the counter and then grab a table. Climb the stairs to their newly-built deck for an even better view. Their pizza is traditional thin-crust New York-style, but they do occasionally have special flavors such as pulled pork and pineapple. Kids love the pizza ring and the garlic knots.

Papa's Pizza

Papa’s is famous for their humongous pizza that covers a table for eight, and their enormous calzone named JAWS. The pizza isn’t just big, it’s delicious with a soft, chewy crust and a great sauce. Papa’s is also known for their pizza designs, using the toppings and cheese to come up with creative images including Ricky Martin or Pac-Man. Papa’s chefs have also competed in the World Pizza Games. Dine in, carry-out or have it delivered, it’s always delicious.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains, specialty drinks called El Leñazo made with fresh fruits from the island and a special pizza recipe that creates a unique culinary experience. Their pizzas are cooked in a wood oven, so the crust is crisp on the outside and soft and chewy inside and has a flavor of its own that complements the rest of the dish. El Campo es Leña is only open on weekends, so take a day trip there to take a break from the hectic world.
