8 Best Pizza 🍕 Restaurants in Phuket
What are the Best Pizza Restaurants in Phuket?
The best pizza restaurants in Phuket are mainly found in Italian-run restaurants. There are many and sometimes hard to find and often away from the tourist places. Of course, the best known pizzeria could be in Patong, Kata, Karon or other coastal places on the Island. But in inland areas there are pizza restaurants that are worth trying because they serve the best pizza ever. Obviously, these pizza restaurants listed below have a wood oven to obtain the best way to cook pizza.
Despite the high temperatures of 350/400 °C, the cooking process of the pizza in the wood oven is surprisingly short and allows to obtain the right mix between the crunchiness of the outside and the softness of the inside.
It might be weird travel to Phuket for eating pizza and not local food, but there are pizza lovers too. I also built a map at the end of each pizza restaurant to help you locate these great places.
Note that there are quite a lot of pizza restaurants to review in Phuket, and I tried some of them but haven’t tried a few, so this list might evolve during the year.
