The 7 Best Pizzas In Malta

With Malta being so close to Italy (there is only a short stretch of water separating the two countries, after all!) it is no surprise that Maltese pizza is so good.

It may be a small island but with so many tourists visiting there is a huge abundance of choice when it comes to getting a great slice of pizza here. These pies are the real deal.

So grab a couple of friends, work up an appetite, forget about the gym and get stuck into one of the very best Maltese pizza spots

It’s all about sourcing the very best top-end ingredients here, which are assembled by true professionals into a pizza that could grace any restaurant in the world.

4. Sciantusi

If you love Italian food then you are instantly going to fall in love with this restaurant.

They are best known for making their own pasta from scratch and pizza dough that is as good as anything you’ll ever taste in Italy itself. They keep their toppings simple and classical, because when the basics are this good you don’t need to do much more with it.

5. Made in Sud

They pack the tables into their small pizzeria to create a wonderful atmosphere that has you hooked the second you walk in the door and smell the dough wafting from the oven.

The crusts are big, spongey and perfectly chewy and hold the oozing hot toppings perfectly in the middle. A simply gorgeous pizza.

6. La Siciliana

A place to really come and treat yourself with amazing pasta, risotto and desserts on the menu.

The star of the show though is the pizza which has a slightly thinner base than most on the list. This gives it a lighter crispier texture. They round it off with some wonderfully creative toppings that will have you coming back on a regular basis.

7. Damiano’s Pizza & Pasta House

A low key corner restaurant with outdoor seating for the warmer months. The name of the game is very much about comfort food.

That means large bowls of pasta with deep rich and lush sauces as well as pizzas absolutely loaded with toppings and brimming with flavour.
