Cagliari is a town known for its pizza. Another great thing about pizza in Cagliari is that it ranks fourth in the country for its great value pies. Pizza is traditionally a dinner menu item, but look out for the town’s specialty pizzetta sfoglia, which is a rolled up version that can be fund at lunch time and eaten on the go.
Pizza in Italy is a pretty traditional affair. There are standard toppings and you are not likely to see creative ingredients or choices beyond the standard tomato and cheese classic margherita. That is not the case at Gio Pizza. This very casual spot has imaginative choices like whole wheat, ginger crusts and giant family sized pizzas.
This popular and economical place is always busy, so you may have to wait for your turn to order a pizzetta, or even better, an entire tray of them. Le Pizzetta d’Oro pizzas are folded into half moons making them perfect for a quick takeout meal. There are not tables here, but take a seat at one of the few benches nearby.
Located in the Quartu Sant’Elena, this pizzeria has options for gluten and lactose free pizza lovers on their menu. Extra care and attention is given for diners with food allergies here.
If you can’t decide whether you feel like seafood or pizza for dinner, why choose? Pizzeria Flores in the historic center of Cagliari can top your pizza with lump crab meat, a mix of mussels, shrimp and clams or a dusting of bottarga. Your personal pie is then baked to perfection in a wood fired oven.
Gourmet pizza has arrived in Cagliari and you will find it at Framento. Pierluigi Fais’s vision is executed with a slow rise dough that creates a pillowy and chewy crust. The topping are meticulously sourced and range from traditional tomatoes, anchovies and mozzarella to radicchio, honey and gorgonzola. In case you need proof, Framento has been awarded a prestigious 3 spoons by the gourmet guide Gambero Rosso.
Spend a morning wandering the covered market stalls at the Mercato di San Benedetto, one of Europe’s largest and you are sure to work up an appetite. After perusing the super fresh fish and stocking up on vacuum packed wheels of pecorino and myrtle scented salami, follow your nose to the bakery section and order a few pizzetta sfoglia.
