Best pizzas Wellington:
A delightful Italian restaurant in the heart of Wellington CBD, who make super wood fired pizza and delicious pasta dishes. Their pizzas are simple, made without fuss and utterly delicious.
They are famous for their hand Neapolitan pizza which is hand rolled and baked fresh in their wood-fired oven, certified by the Naples Pizza Association. You could easily imagine yourself sitting in Italy while eating here.
La Bella Italia combines the best of traditional, authentic Italian products and cuisine with Kiwi’s passion for service. With monthly cooking classes available, you too can learn the secrets of making perfect pizza. Be sure to try their ‘Zeataly’ – marinated king salmon, mascarpone, and baby spinach.
This Manukau wood fired, thin crust pizza takeaway joint is a local favourite and for good reason – the pizzas are simply perfect. While the pizzas themselves are authentic in base with just the right amount of char, toppings are ‘Kiwi’, with spicy chicken a popular choice.
One of Wellington’s top Italian restaurants, Fratelli’s is owned by two brothers. They also do gluten free bases and vegan cheese options, so even the fussiest eater will enjoy. Dairy lovers should get the Four Cheese, with Taleggio, Gorgonzola, Parmesan & Mozzarella Cheeses.
A super busy pizza slice kiosk on Courtney Place, Tommy Millions is a Wellington institution and loved by locals. They sell their pizzas by the slice or whole, so you can mix ‘n’ match all of the delicious toppings. Whether you go for a tomato or a white base, this place won’t let you down.
This cute restaurant has a wide-range of goods including pasta, wine, cheeses, meats and so much more, but it’s their droolworthy pizza that should be your first choice from the menu. They do ‘Metre Pizza Mondays’, where you choose three flavours on a long pizza to share.
