An article about the best pizza in Oaxaca wouldn’t be complete without the mention of tlayudas, otherwise known as the Oaxacan pizza, and Mexico’s answer to Italy’s culinary sensation. I Love Tlayudas has three branches across Oaxaca City and offers up thin and crispy tortillas, typically topped with frijoles (beans), avocado, tomatoes, meat of your choosing, and the best of all the cheeses, Oaxaca cheese (a stringy cheese similar to mozzarella). Load this Oaxacan treat with all the salsas you fancy and a healthy squeeze of lime before devouring.

Located opposite the pretty Jardin Conzatti in Oaxaca’s stunning historic center, Trattoría y Pizzería Ciao Italia is a decent place to head to if you’re looking for simple, reliable Italian food. Check out the crispy, thin crust pizzas and the house special raspberry vinaigrette with the salad. If you’re lucky, you might catch this place on a day when they have live music, but even if you don’t the welcoming staff remain a constant. For those searching for a dinner that isn’t Mexican, this is an affordable alternative to all the tacos.
