The Best Pizzerias in Sydney


Pizza seems to be a universal food darling – and for good reason. Be it the fast food type that gets delivered to your door or the authentic, traditional type prepared by Italian chefs, you can never seem to get enough of them.

But with the plethora of pizza joints in Sydney, how would you know which place serves the best (rather than just ‘good’)? Here’s the list of the best pizzerias in Sydney:

With a cosy venue and tasty woodfire pizza, covered in soft ricotta and tasty salami, you can never just have one slice. Don’t forget to try their pasta too, especially those with their homemade tomato sauce.

If you’re with a big group, don’t hesitate to order the one-metre thin wood fired pizza made by third-generation Italian pizzaioli (pizza maker). It’s truly an authentic Italian experience.

With dim interior and medium space, Vacanza serves as a great place to dine for two or a small group. Try the buffalo mozzarella range – especially the arancini. Be prepared to queue, though – or better, come early.

You might think, “how do you make pizza in a truck?” Well, the people at Happy as Larry manage to do just that. With soul music blaring from their speakers, you can enjoy various pizzas, from lasagne to lobster pizza. Dessert pizza is also available in the form of a Nutella-filled calzone. Yum!


Frankie’s Pizza

Here, you can have New York-styled pizza slices with a variety of toppings based on sauce base (red or white) while also enjoying rock’n’roll music and playing pinball machines. A cool place to hang out and chew on some pizza if you are in the city.


And that’s my personal list of the best pizzerias in Sydney – where will you go for dinner this week?
