Daddy Greens Pizzabar is a mega-popular NYC/Neapolitan-style pizza hybrid from a gas fired oven. The key here is their amazing dough. It’s extremely tender, crispy and chewy, with a unique sour and smoky flavour that comes from cooking at an extremely high temperature.
Pizzeria Via Tribunali was the first real Neapolitan pizzeria in Helsinki, so kudos to these game changers. In fact, they’re Finland’s first and currently only pizzeria certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana.
The fluffy dough makes for perfect crusts, and the pizza spends just over a minute in the 450 °C open fire oven.
Linko PizzaBar is allll about thin, crispy pizzas with amazing toppings. Think: spicy salami, Scamorza cheese, roasted garlic, butter fried sage, chili oil and black pepper.
A great neighbourhood pizzeria, the pies here are super satisfying. Bonus: it also occasionally has live music.
This artisan-organic pizzeria has amazingly fresh ingredients. The Alfons’ unique crust is made from a carefully double fermented combination of local organic spelt grain flour, pure Italian olive oil and Alfon’s beloved sourdough.
It’s a real classic.
At the heart of this restaurant lies a stone oven, producing “liuska” gourmet pizzas that knock traditional pizzas off the plate. What’s liuska? It’s kinda like pizza but better! It’s basically an oval-shaped and thin flat bread with some unusual and inventive toppings like strawberries, chevre, rucola and pine nuts.
Fornitaly is pretty unique – it’s a pizza place with authentic Italian pizza made by three Italians at a “barn” in Jollas, east-Helsinki. There’s no tables at this place, just take away, so be prepared to eat in on the go.
The pizzas are great value; thick, chewy crusts with rich tomato sauce and cheese. Well worth a visit for this great Helsinki pizza.
