There are two distinct tribes of pizza lovers. The first are those who drool over the classic Napoletana style—paper thin, crispy stone-baked pizza, delicately topped with quality ingredients. Then there are those who pine for thick, doughy bases laden with cheese and as many toppings as possible. No matter which tribe you’re in, the Chilean capital has something to cater for every pizza lover’s need. Check out our handy guide to help you decide where to head for your next slice.
