As a flat out lover/slut for anything carb based, it’s only natural that pizza is one of my favorite eats.
Finding the best Pizza in Dubai is complicated because not all pizzas are created equally and not all pizzas can be compared. It makes no sense comparing an Al Reef Bakery to a La Petite Maison (my take on apples and oranges).
This led me to create a framework of an all encompassing three Classes and Qualities ofThe Best Pizzas in Dubai.
THE C Q BREAKDOWN
- The Gourmet Pizza
- The In-Betweener
- The Down n Dirty Pizza
Just as a side note – whether it’s a gourmet or a down n dirty pizza its gotta be eaten with your hands. Whenever people break out their forks and knives for a pizza my eyes can’t help but roll.
- The Crust
- The Sauce
- The Toppings
As a second side note – I really, really, really, can’t comprehend chicken on a pizza – there’s a time and place for everything people – chicken on a pizza ain’t one of them.
THE BEST GOURMET PIZZA
Drum Roll Plzzz
It’s the type of pizza that’s light and goes really well with a salad and dinner parties.
|Crust||The crust is exceptionally thin but still soft. One slice takes approximately 0.5 seconds to consume – I like it – ease of consuming is key.|
|Sauce||Is light and pure – the chef held a tomato in his hand, crushed it over the pizza and spread it around to make it look nice. (that’s the picture I have in my mind)|
|Toppings||The freshest of the fresh, chunky and generous. As a mushroom lover my favorite pizza is the Funghi Pizza.|
Yes, I have tasted 1-800 pizza and I used to live off of it until I met Marzano’s Pizza.
Delivery: The Old Town area
Location: Old Town, Manzil Souk. Price per Couple: AED 100. Opening Time: 12:00pm to 11:45 pm. Unlicensed.
THE BEST IN-BETWEENER PIZZA
Table Tap Plzzz
It’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
|Crust||Healthy yet scrumptious. The dough is seriously fluffy without a hint of oil.|
|Sauce||I’ve tried the red sauce and it was rich and homey. They do have options of white and bbq sauce, though I may probably never order them, it’s always good to have the option.|
|Toppings||All the toppings and combinations you can wish for. The Fork It Over Dubai Pizza goes something like this: basil, artichoke, mushrooms, black olives, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese – that’s perfection in a box.|
I really enjoy restaurants with a strong concept which is what NKD Pizza has. To me it’s a healthy, tasty, Pizza delivered fast.
Delivery: The Marina side and expanding
Location: Dubai Marina. Price per Couple: AED 100. Opening Time: Sat – Wed 10:30 am – Mid Night, Thurs to Fri 10:30 to 1:00 am. Unlicensed.
THE BEST DOWN N DIRTY PIZZA
Belly Slap Plzzz
It’s the type of oil entrenched pizza that makes you say “Lets geterrrr duuunnnn” – I love saying that. Roll up your sleeves and dive in there.
|Crust||Thick, fluffy yet crispy around the edges. I love picking up a slice and seeing the oil imprint on the box – an “I was there” mark. A thin Pizza Hut pizza is just not a Pizza Hut pizza to me.|
|Sauce||Heavy and blood red. I always make a special request for extra sauce on my Pizza Hut pizza.|
|Toppings||Plentiful, sometimes quite random and serves the purpose.|
I know you may be thinking how unappetizing the picture is, but it’s something I’m proud of – finished off a medium pizza all by myself!!
Delivery: Every where
