Best pizza restaurants in Hong Kong

Take it. Take another little pizza my heart now, baby.

It's that time of year where you're either slaving away in the kitchen, heading out for an indulgent meal or ordering an epic feast to be delivered to your door. But sometimes what you really need is something far more satisfyingly simple, and if you're like us, a piping hot cheesy pizza is probably your go-to order. 

From larger-than-life New York slices to refined Neapolitan pies, a pizza that's fresh out the oven is a no brainer. It's a good thing then that our city boasts pizzerias that rival those in Italy and America. So, whether you like your crust thick or thin, your toppings simple or indulgent, you're bound to find a slice to answer your cravings.

RECOMMENDED: Continue the carb-fest at the best Italian restaurants in Hong Kong, and finish it off on a sweet note with one of the best cookies in town.

Restaurants Sheung Wan

This Hollywood Road spot has been serving up rustic Italian fare for years and has never lost its status as one of the best pizza joints in Hong Kong. The margherita is our favourite, made in traditional Neopolitan style in a custom-designed pizza oven shipped straight from Italy. The crust is light and crunchy and the base thin. The sauce is bursting with flavour and the buffalo mozzarella is the savoury icing on top.

Alvy’s

Restaurants Pizza Kennedy Town

A cosy neighbourhood joint perfect for Kennedy Town, Alvy’s serves up good pizza and good drinks in equal measure.  The venue is perfectly reminiscent of a casual New York neighbourhood bar – another success by designer Paul Gelinas, who nailed the neighbourhood gastropub vibes at May Chow’s Second Draft in Tai Hang. Expect not just scrumptious takes on classics like the pepperoni, four-cheese, and meatball pizza; but also creative inventions such as the Bourbon Pie – comprised of BBQ sauce with mozzarella, chicken, and deep-fried shallots; and the Bak Gwei, which consists of gruyere béchamel with char siu, mozzarella, and ginger paste.

Amalfitana

Restaurants Italian Repulse Bay

Amalfitana brings a slice of the Amalfi coast to Repulse Bay. More precisely, slices of quality Napolitano-style pizza in a relaxed setting. Amalfitana is small and has a distinct sense of place with its Amalfi Coast-inspired mural and turquoise tiled pizza oven. The menu is small, too, and simple. A handful of starters, desserts, and the artisanal pizzas the restaurant prides itself on. As well as the humble Margherita, Parma ham, and the mouthwatering calzone.

Restaurants Pizza Happy Valley

Located not far off the Happy Valley Racecourse, Dough Bros may be a tiny take-out pizza shop with just a few stools, but their artisanal sourdough pizza and freshly-filled doughnuts (heads up, Nutella fanatics!) are certainly worth the wait. Not to mention the wide selection of local/imported beers and wines that are sure to quench your thirst as the chef hand-rolls your pizza on the spot. Good news for those who nearer to Central is that Dough Bros have recently expanded their operations to Soho.

Emmer Pizzeria & Cafe

Restaurants Pizza Admiralty

This pizzeria is located on the leafy fourth level of Pacific Place in Admiralty and proves a worthy addition to Hong Kong's growing list of quality pizzerias. The restaurant takes its name from an old type of awned wheat that has been used for centuries in baking and naturally utilizes this ancient flour in its pizzas. The result is pizzas that have a uniquely earthy base, to which they add all manner of top-notch flavours to make the pizza experience complete.

The simple menu bears only six pizzas – from margarita to marinara, but we particularly recommend the parma, which is topped with extremely generous amounts of good-quality ham and rocket for an explosion of flavour. Next time you're in Admiralty on an empty stomach, you might want to check this one out.

Fini’s

Restaurants Italian Soho

This casual, fuss-free eatery plates up NY-style pizzas, along with other homemade pasta and Italian-inspired favourites, but it's the restaurant's 12-inch pizzas that you'll be looking to indulge in, and maybe share if you're feeling generous. From a classic Margherita or Brooklyn Special packed with homemade mozzarella, fried eggplant, roasted garlic and peppers, and basil.

La Camionetta

Restaurants Pizza Soho

Yet another pizzeria to grace our city, La Camionetta is a cosy Italian spot that is fronted by a vintage Volkswagen Kombi bus (hence the restaurant’s name, meaning truck in Italian) and offers handcrafted pizzas and Italian aperitivo. Though the owners are actually French, it’s the pizzas that do the work in whisking you away to Italy. The pizza bianca (white base) La CamBurrata has a crisp crust and fluffy dough topped with creamy fior di latte, cherry tomatoes, savoury Parma ham and 150g of burrata. Just cut in and let the milky, buttery burrata flow onto the pizza.

Restaurants Soho

When we first heard Motorino was setting up shop in the district, we expected great things. After all, it brings one awesome reputation with it, being one of New York’s most popular pizzeria chains. And this is its first Asian outing to boot. On Soho’s busy, hilly Shelley Street, this Neapolitan-style pizzeria is decked out with green-striped walls and a silver ceiling. The eye-catching restaurant shouts home comforts and makes good use of its space. As for the pizzas, they're all good, but we recommend the meatball and the four cheese.

Restaurants Pizza Causeway Bay

Mother of Pizzas takes the very best of the New York and Neapolitan traditions and bakes them into a single pie. Crispy and chewy, the hand-stretched crusts here are delicately charred in places and painted with a house-blended sauce made with San Marzano tomatoes. The slices are American-sized, designed to be folded up and eaten with a cavalcade of toppings, from the Pepperoni L'Americano (mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, pepperoni) to the more adventurous Hawaiian Coco featuring fresh pineapple and shredded coconut.

Restaurants Pizza Central

This recent addition to the buzzing food scene on Peel Street has already gained a loyal following for its doughy, flavourful pizzas complemented by an intensely pleasant and hip atmosphere. The menu boasts a bunch of creative pizzas, from the ubiquitous parma to less seen offerings like the spicy ndjua and the rustica – which is topped with pancetta, rosemary and baked potato among others. Add to the pizzas thoughtful starters like mozzarella fritters and cold cuts, and you have the perfect place if you want to share good slices with a friend or significant other in laid-back yet romantic surroundings.
