Pizza, oh pizza! Distinctly different in Argentina from everywhere else in the world, but oh so delicious! Argentine pizza is in a league of its own, a thick pan delight overflowing with melted cheese. But you can still find some tasty pies from other shores in the Argentine capital. We round up the best pizzerias, local and foreign, in Buenos Aires.

1. Guerrin

Guerrin wears the crown of dishing up the best slices of traditional Argentine pizza in town. The pizza is typical of the country – thick, cheesy and minimal in terms of the toppings on offer. A standard selection of napolitana, ham and pepper, straight up mozzarella and the onion-topped fugazza and fugazzeta are the order of the day, and if you want the full local experience, order a couple of slices and eat them standing up at the long bar.

2. El Cuartito

Perhaps second in the running for the city’s best Argie version of pizza is El Cuartito, located just a stone’s throw away from its rival in the heart of the theater district near Avenida Corriente. El Cuartito gives Guerrin a good run for its money, and is perhaps only outpaced by Guerrin’s fame within the city. It’s best to go with a few friends and share a deep-pan pie and some beers, but beware, there is often a queue.

Ugi’s

Pizza of the masses, Ugi’s is one of the cheapest eats in the city. Dismissed by food snobs but revered by anyone looking for an affordable slice of heaven, Ugi’s is a barometer of inflation as well as being some of the best thin-base pizza in the city for the price. These down-at-heel pizzerias serve two flavors and two flavors only, but they also come in handy half or quarter portions if your wallet won’t stretch to a full pie. Don’t diss Ugi’s – it will save you when you have a pizza emergency one day.

4. La Mas Querida

Pizza a la parilla, or pizza on the grill, is usually something made at home on the barbecue when you and your friends are looking for a cheap and tasty night in. Well, at La Mas Querida, the pizza a la parilla has been given a new, formal lease of life. These rectangular pizzas are flame-grilled over an open fire and are perfect for sharing. The original Belgrano joint was so popular that they have opened a new Palermo branch for all the hip cats looking for their pizza fix.

Cosi Mi Piace

Pizza Romana at Cosi Mi Piace

Buenos Aires’ answer to pizza Romana, Cosi Mi Piace provides a great alternative to Siamo Nel Forno’s Napolese offering. A daringly thin crust topped with the freshest and finest ingredients make these pies memorable long after you have cleared your plate, and they also have a great selection of antipasti to gorge on for that true taste of Italy.

Banchero

A favorite of football fans in the lower-class neighborhood of La Boca, Banchero is the pizza of choice of Argentina’s humble heroes. Its offerings are similar to that of El Cuartito and Guerrin, but it’s something of a lesser cousin to these two famous haunts, but no less legit in terms of the prized pies it dishes out. There is also a branch on Corrientes if you can’t get a spot in Guerrin or El Cuartito, so it’s win win!
