9 Places To Get The Best Wood-Fired Pizzas in Bangalore
If you love thin-crust pizzas with charred marks on the top and the smoky flavour from the brick oven they are made in, then this list is for you. Get a taste of American, Italian, and Neapolitan-style pizza, and even offerings that suit specific dietary preferences, with this list of eateries serving the best wood-fired pizzas in town.
1. Brik Oven, Church Street, and multiple locations
Brik Oven is the oldest joint in town offering Neapolitan-style pizzas, and with the hand-made sourdough base, draped in San Marzano tomato sauce with exotic toppings like goat cheese and prosciutto, their wood-fired pizzas are a must-try! Even better, they offer half-and-half customisation, so you can pick a selection of toppings on one half of the pizza, and a different set of toppings on the other half, ensuring the best of both worlds. Their Shrooms non-veg pizza is the best bet.
