Whether you like a good dose of cheese or eat completely plant-based: something for everyone.
The best pizza in Utrecht
1. Pizza Beppe
Pizza Beppe is the very first restaurant in the Netherlands to be accepted by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana – that deserves a first place. And you can taste that these pizzas are prepared in the authentic Neapolitan way – including real Italian San Marzano tomatoes and Grana Padano . The thin bottoms and crispy crusts are taken out of the wood oven in no time and placed on your plate.
This is how Italians have been making pizza for generations, and we hope it continues for a long time to come.
Address Pizza Beppe: Hardebollenstraat 10 (Utrecht Center), Vleutenseweg 124 (Lombok), Jan van Scorelstraat 33 (Utrecht East)
2. Punk Pizza
Would you like a ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ with roasted peppers, organic Pomodori tomatoes, salami, mozzarella, pecorino , chilies and jalapeño? A ‘Blondie’ with pancetta , ricotta, red onion, walnuts and arugula? Or would you prefer ‘The Ramones’ with mozzarella, pecorino, gorgonzola and scamorza affumicata? Then you have to be at Punk Pizza ! (Oh, and don’t forget the ‘Trashmisu’ – aka tiramisu – for dessert.)
In this pizza joint with a rough edge, they serve fantastic pizzas with ingredients that are almost all organic. We quote: “We are doing our utmost to be completely planet-friendly and not get caught up in the corporate food industry machine. fuck them! ”
Bit rebellious today? Come to the dark side. We have pizza.
Address Punk Pizza: Avenue of New Guinea 141
At Pizza Beppe and Punk Pizza there are several vegan pizzas on the menu, but if you really want a fantastic menu if you don’t eat meat and cheese, then you have to go to Vegitalian . This new Italian restaurant (besides pizzas, there are also pastas on the menu). serves everything from a fully plant-based quattro formaggi to lesser-known combos like the spicy pumpkin with green asparagus or fig with balsamic vinegar.
But whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed. Especially the mushroom truffle is our favorite! Not a fan of vegan cheese ? They also have cow’s milk cheese.
Address Vegetarian: Schoutenstraat 17
4. Pizza at Piero’s Utrecht
Warm, familiar and always tasty: that’s Piero’s . The Italian host Piero ( surprise surprise ) chats with everyone, thinks along with you about your order and serves you great classic pizzas, with a soft crust and such a tip that hangs down perfectly.
Thirsty from all that pizza? The menu is full of Italian wines and beers, traditional amaros and cocktails. Un Negroni, per favore.
Address Piero’s Utrecht: Empty Erf 10
5. Pizzeria O’Panuozzo
Ever heard of a ‘panuozzo’? This is a bread roll made from pizza dough, traditionally baked in the wood oven. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and filled with whatever you want. A kind of Neapolitan street food – and that’s what pizzeria O’Panuozzo is named after.
On the menu you will find different types of panuozzo, but of course also ‘normal’ pizzas. From the traditional al tartufo to pizzas with salsiccia sausage, broccoli (!) and buffalo mozzarella: the choice is huge. But for the pizzas you don’t choose this time, just come back next week.
Address O’Panuozzo: Voorstraat 34, Mariastraat 35
