The best pizza in Zurich

Where's the best pizza in the city of Zurich? One of the most frequently asked questions and not so easy to answer, because pizza doesn't have the ONE perfect pizza that everyone tastes equally good. One prefers it with a thin dough, the next likes it especially light and crispy and the third prefers the Neapolitan pizza with a thick, airy rim. Whether a lot or a little topping with specially ripened tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella, in a 500 degree hot oven, with beer dough matured for at least 48 hours - a simple dish quickly becomes a whole science. Therefore, I have deliberately listed quite different types of pizzas for you and hope you find your personal favorite.

Azzurro

Fine pizza with a very thin, crispy base can be found at Azzurro. For many people the best pizza in Zurich. On each pizza there is a mozzarella ball in the middle. In summer you can sit outside in the garden.

My tip: Pizza Margherita or with Parma ham

In addition to pizzas there are also changing lunch menus, take-away possible. In the evening guests are spoiled with antipasti, changing primi (pasta dishes) and secondi (meat or fish). The dishes vary according to the season and the chef's mood. Very cordial service.

My tip: homemade pasta and pizza

Da Michelangelo

In search of the best pizza in Zurich, I came across 'da Michelangelo'. I wouldn't say it's the best pizza, but it's definitely one of my favorites. The homemade tagliatelle with seafood could not convince me, because the taste was a bit too bland and the seafood could be of better quality. The restaurant is quite large and bright due to the large windows and is also very popular with families.

My tip: Pizza with Parma ham, rocket and fig

da PONE: Napoletan pizza at the highest level

Restaurant

Pizza Napoletana, one of the best in Zurich. The San Gennaro on Wipkingerplatz has moved and the Pizzeria Da Pone has reopened with a surprising number of familiar faces ;-) A large part of the San Gennaro team, including pizzaiolo Francesco Pone, are (newly) at work here.

Kitchen

Francesco Pone trained in Naples with one of the world's best pizzaiolos, who also created the recipe for the Margherinara, which has already won awards. The flour for the pizza dough is a proprietary mixture and is ground in the Swissmill opposite. The pizza dough is left to rise for 48 hours and the pizza is baked quickly and very hot at 500 degrees with an airy crust and high-quality ingredients such as selected San Marzano tomatoes.

Ambience / Details

The restaurant has 170 seats and has different rooms; the conservatory is a little noisy. Guests who are more sensitive to noise are better off sitting in the other area. In summer, you can sit outside with a view of the Limmat.
I think the pizza and the ambience are even better than before. :)

My impressions on Instagram (video)

😋 The recommendations:  

- Tris di Montanara classica - three small deep-fried pizzas with various sauces
- Pizza Margherinara & Pizza Funghi e Coppa
- Straccetti da Pone - a kind of churros made from pizza dough with chocolate and pistachio cream

Don Leone

 don leone innen2

Don Leone is a Zurich institution for good bourgeois Italian food and pizzas are freshly prepared in the pizza oven. Ideal for a convivial evening with friends, preferably in the cosy vaulted cellar.

My tip: The heart-shaped pizza in the picture is topped with roast beef, parmesam and truffles - perfect in taste and prepared with lots of 'amore', but generously sized for one person. ;)

Miracle

The Miracle convinces in Seefeld with its wafer-thin pizzas with crispy base and fresh topping. Also a must are the homemade pasta, the veal cordon bleu and as a crowning conclusion the homemade ice cream. At noon there are different lunch menus to choose from. The ambience is down-to-earth and cosy, in summer there are a few tables outside.

Napulé

In Napulé in miles you get excellent pizzas. These are prepared by the multi-award-winning Pizzaiolo World Champion Raffaele Tromiro in a wood-fired oven according to a Neapolitan recipe. The Mozzarella di bufala for 4 francs extra should not be missed. The restaurant itself is rather noisy, with tight seating and very fast service, because the table is probably reserved several times in the evening. Not for a romantic evening, but with fantastic pizza. Also possible as take-away.

In Zurich, there are now also two take-away options. One in district 1 (near Stadelhofen) and one in district 5 (near Limmatplatz).

My tip:best to share with one person - for the natural taste Pizza Margherita - and the excellent Pizza Cornucopia

SO

A great concept - SO Pizza. The guest does not have to decide on a pizza, but is served various pieces of pizza à discrétion fresh from the oven. Vegetarians also get their money's worth. Before the pizza feast there is a bowl of crisp, mixed salad and pizza bread.

My Tip: Lunch for CHF 19 - Pizza à discrétion

Taverne da Angelo

It took quite a while until I became aware of the tavern da Angelo. There's fantastic pizza here. The restaurant is a bit inconspicuous from the outside, but due to its great popularity a reservation is recommended. With a neighbourhood stain feeling, friendly service and green olives to get you in the right mood, you feel welcome right away. Besides the deliciously crispy pizza, the risotto and the fennel, orange salad is highly recommended.
