As a Tokyo foodie, you might know that some of the world's best pizzas can be found right here in Tokyo. More specifically, Tokyo has taken a liking to Naples-style pizza, with numerous pizzerias spinning out authentic Neapolitan pizzas that are just as good as the ones you’d find in Italy.

And it’s not just us who are saying this. Nine local pizzerias have made it into this year's prestigious 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific ranking. In fact, a total of 13 pizzerias in Japan (including the nine in Tokyo) were featured in this year's list, making Japan the most awarded country for a second consecutive year. This regional edition of 50 Top Pizza is curated by a group of inspectors throughout Asia-Pacific, with restaurants being judged on food quality, service, wine, décor and ambience.

The four other pizzerias in Japan that make the top 50 are Pizzeria Braceria Cesari in Nagoya (No 8), Pizzeria da Tigre in Osaka (No 19), Pizzeria da Ciro in Kyoto (No 36), and A16 in Yokohama (No 49).

Something to look forward to later in September is the unveiling of 2024’s 100 Best Pizzerias in the World. The ceremony for this will take place in Naples, Italy. The top 13 restaurants from 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific are guaranteed a spot in this worldwide list.
