JFW’s Top Picks: 8 Restaurants With The Best Pizzas In Chennai!

Pizza lovers, make your list!

Indulging in a sumptuous pizza is such a feeling of comfort, the cheesy goodness, the crust, the multiple layers of toppings! Pizza is not just another dish, it’s an emotion. We love that it’s such a no-brainer, movie night=pizza, party=pizza, friends get together=pizza. While there have been heated discussions over what can go on top of a pizza, it’s such a personal preference. Pineapple or pepperoni, here is the list of pizza places in Chennai that are a must-try:

1. Lola’s Pizzeria :

This is one of Chennai’s best pizzerias and a must-try if you haven’t already. The pizzas are a work of art, just the perfect hand-stretched dough topped with fresh ingredients made in a wood-fired oven. The highlight of every bite is the special sauce they use that elevates your culinary experience.

2. Ciros Pizzeria:

Ciros Pizzeria has grown into one of the most popular and loved pizza places in Chennai. Their polo picante pizza is a belter. Try from their wide range of selections whether it is a simple marinara pizza or their Inferno, they have something for every type of pizza lover.

3. Writer’s Cafe:

Writer’s Cafe’s Flammenkuchen is a rectangular bread from Germany. Their tricolour pizza, focaccia, madras BBQ chicken or you could make your own pizza. It’s one of the most budget-friendly places that offer exceptional pizzas.

4. Lazy Leopard:

The new one on the block is Lazy Leopard which offers the most authentic Neapolitan pizzas in Chennai. The dough is carefully curated with a 5-day slow fermentation process that makes the pizza very light yet has the right amount of bite. You could take your pick with the extensive menu offered here.

5. The Fat Boy:

The Fat Boy pizzas, like their really eclectic names, are made to perfection with the choicest of ingredients and the freshest of toppings. The sauce is made from San Marzano tomatoes and the dough is hand stretched to be this pillowy yet crusty base.

6. Malts Pizzeria:

If you’re eating from Matls Pizzeria for the first time, their fromage pizza is one of the best. It’s the perfect combination of fresh mozzarella. Pizza mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, Gorgonzola and feta.

7. Tuscana:

Another Chennai favourite is this Italian restaurant Tuscana that has been providing Chennaities with authentic pizzas for years. Before the new-age pizza places gained popularity, this was the one that all of us loved to buy and do to date!

8. Nolita:

They take pride in flaunting the fact that their dough is preservative-free, naturally fermented and hand-rolled. The sourdough pizza packs a flavourful punch which is elevated with the use of fresh ingredients chosen flawlessly to give you a perfect mouthful.
