Updated: 19 December 2017
Judging by the sheer number of pizzerias in Huaraz, the locals must think us gringos are completely obsessed with this savory Italian pie. Which isn’t so far from the truth because – let’s face it – few foods are as comforting as a well-prepared pizza, especially after a long day of trekking in the mountains. Here are the best places to indulge in the city, many of which serve amazing pasta too.
Mi Comedia Pizzeria

Despite being located a 15-minute walk from the center of town, the quality of the pizza at Mi Comedia Pizzeria is enough to pull in a steady tourist crowd. Their wood-fired crusts are thin and crunchy, cooked to perfection and accompanied by fresh tomato paste and a variety of divine toppings.
