Best Pizza in Cape Town (Top 12)

Updated: Jun 20

Pizza Restaurants in Cape Town

It's about as hard to find someone who doesn't enjoy pizza as it is to find a restaurant in Cape Town that doesn't serve pizza. What we do know, all pizzas aren't created equally. We've put together our top 12 places to enjoy a pizza in Cape Town (and surrounds).


The tough thing about this list is that everyone enjoys their pizza in a different way. I know for me personally, there are times I want to enjoy a pizza in an authentic Italian restaurant and other times at the beach looking over the ocean. Our list is balanced between a variety of styles and atmospheres.
