Best pizzas in Hamburg
This funky Neapolitan-style pizzeria starts with amazing dough. They use an original recipe from Naples, prepared with the best ingredients, that’s then left to prove for 48 hours. This results in a beautiful charred crust.
Choose from classic Napoli toppings or something a little different.
Slim Jim’s is one of the best pizzas in Hamburg, no doubt about it. If you love customising your pizza then this is the place for you. Pick every ingredient you want on it – there’s even vegan cheese.
The vibe in here is always buzzing, making it a great place to start off your night.
Al Volo is a little piece of Southern Italy in Hamburg. They use seasonal ingredients to make special pizzas (right now it’s asparagus season!) and the crusts are perfectly chewy. Pizza toppings include creamy truffle cheese.
Our top pick? The signature Pizza Zola, with gorgonzola, pear and walnuts.
Make your way to Winderhud for this lovely little pizzeria that serves up authentic Neapolitan pies that never disappoint. Il Forno’s pizzas are thick and made with a homemade tomato sauce.
Pizzas are baked in the wood-fired Italian stone oven, giving them a charred base with fluffy crusts. Delicious.
La Locanda is old school in the best ways: authentic Italian dishes, homemade dough bargain prices and friendly service. While the pastas are great, it’s the pizzas you need to order. Don’t miss out on the truffle and rocket pie.
Grab a seat outside on the terrace in the warmer months and you really will be in carb-heaven.
Whether you’re vegan or a dedicated carnivore, this place has pizza for everyone: vegan pizza, vegetarian pizza or even Serrano ham. Pizza Bande creates regular specials depending on what tasty ingredients they get from the local market.
What about smoked tofu with candied peppers, pine nuts and hibiscus chilli cream or a spicy chorizo pizza with artichokes, olives and smoked buffalo mozzarella?
The pizzas here aren’t exactly traditionally Italian; they’re baked directly on stone, with colourful and creative toppings. As well as classic pies, they also do a unique ‘pizza sushi’. Think dough instead of nori – it’s a must-try.
P.S. If you can give 24-hours notice, they will make a special gluten-free dough.
