Updated: Jun 24, 2023

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.

10) Tiger's milk (Kloof Street)

You'll always have a great pizza at Tiger's milk. Our favourite is Tiger's Milk Kloof. However, all Tigers have a similar vibe and quality. Tigers might not be the classic pizzeria, it's more known as a bar/restaurant that makes great pizzas and burgers. All the Tigers Milks are in great locations. The pizzas are wood-fired and there are few places better to spend a Friday or Saturday evening in Cape Town.

13) unWinded at the Beach (Woodbridge Island)

unWinded would have always made the list with their great pizzas. What has pushed them up to our number 1 spot is their new location at Woodbridge Island. This casual laid back restaurant is for family and friends. The service and vibe are great. The pizzas are incredible.


"Absolutely AMAZING experience at this cozy restaurant, the staff are exceptionally friendly and kind, the food is incredible, I adore their pasta's most of all."

14) Blue Peter (Blouberg)

Blue Peter Hotel is a classic. If you are looking for an unbeatable view of the ocean and table mountain, blue peter is a local favourite. The pizzas are good, however, it's more the vibe you will find on a sunny afternoon with no wind in Cape Town. There is a big grass area that looks right over the ocean where you will find locals enjoying their afternoons with beers and pizzas.
