Like other big cities, Budapest has plenty of pizza joints that churn out cheap, but not especially good slices. But in addition to these, there are also a handful of dedicated pizza shops that have mastered the art of pizza-making, using longer fermentations and natural leavenings. Some specialize in Naples or Roman-style pies, others simply put out delicious pizza without devotion to a particular region. Here, the best pizzerias in Budapest.
Pizzica is a small pizza shop in Budapest specializing in pizza al taglio — the Roman invention where rectangular-shaped slices are cut with a scissor and usually taken to-go. The de Bartolomeo brothers, natives from Southern Italy, run this tiny takeout joint in District 6; on most days you'll find them sliding cast-iron pans in and out of an electric oven.
