The Best Pizza Joints in Cape Town

I love pizza so much – whether I’m feeling sad, happy, or even if I’ve had a few too many, pizza always makes everything better. Now, I want to share with you my personal picks for the absolute best pizza restaurants in Cape Town. Trust me, if you give these places a try, you won’t be disappointed. And hey, I’m curious – what are your favorite pizza spots in Cape Town? If you don’t see them on this list, make sure to let me know in the comments below!

1. Busy, Busy, Busy

Posticino in Sea Point is my ultimate go-to for pizzas. The bases are thin and crispy with a generous amount of toppings, and thankfully not overloaded with cheese, which is a relief for my waistline. I haven’t actually dined in at Posticino because it’s always bustling and busy. Even waiting inside for my take-out order can be a little overwhelming, but trust me, it’s worth it! My top recommendation is their bacon, mushroom, feta, and pineapple pizza. It’s a delightful combination of flavors on a perfect crust.

2. Rough side of town

When it comes to Rafiki’s, most people associate it with a place for heavy drinkers. However, their pizzas offer a delightful way to spend an early evening on the balcony with a couple of beers, especially on Mondays when you can enjoy their two for one deal. What sets these pizzas apart? It’s the unique twist of using onion and tomato marmalade instead of plain tomato paste. This special touch elevates even a simple margherita into a mouthwatering treat. I personally love it so much that I wish I could buy a bottle of this marmalade for myself.

3. It’s in the name

After a fire in June 2010, Basilico went through a major transformation, but they managed to maintain the same mouthwatering pizzas. These pizzas are not only quick to make but also generously topped (if pizzas can even have a top?). Ever since the incident, the restaurant’s popularity has soared, and it’s now nearly impossible to get a table without making a reservation. I have a feeling that the loyal customers are drawn in by the irresistible Basilico pizza, with its avocado, mushroom, bacon, onion, and garlic toppings.

4. Real Italiano

Ah, the atmosphere of Bacini’s! Just one look at the décor and you’ll be transported to Italy – the Tricolore flags, the Italian football posters, and those classic red and white checked table cloths. It’s like stepping into the heart of Italy itself. And let’s talk about the pizzas – they’re out of this world! Each one is wood-fired to perfection, giving it that authentic taste and texture. Now, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous and want to try something beyond the usual Regina, then the gourmet pizza menu is calling your name. Trust me, it’s a whole new level of deliciousness. So why not pay a visit to Bacini’s and treat your taste buds to a little taste of Italy? Here’s the address: 177 Kloof Street. And if you want to make a reservation, just give them a call at 021-423-6668. Bacini’s – the trendsetter in the pizza world.

I absolutely love Greens, a restaurant chain that offers a wide range of dishes. But my favorite location has to be their Park Street branch in Gardens, especially when it comes to their pizza menu. Picture this – sitting outside, observing the hip crowd of Cape Town as you indulge in a trendy and delicious pizza topped with fresh rocket. It’s the ideal way to spend a Friday evening. What’s even better is that Greens boasts an impressive wine selection that pairs perfectly with any pizza topping you desire. If I had to recommend one section of their menu, it would be the Pizza California – each pizza in this category is adorned with a refreshing green ingredient.

If you’re in the mood for a unique dining experience, you won’t be disappointed by Greens.

6. The Lifesaver

When I’m out late and my stomach starts growling, there’s only one place that comes to mind — Clay Oven. Their pizzas are a lifesaver, especially when you’re partying all night and hunger strikes. While I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit Clay Oven on a regular night, it’s a must-remember spot for those late-night cravings.

Clay Oven has got you covered with their delicious pizzas that are served until the crack of dawn. Whether you prefer a classic Margherita or a loaded meat lover’s pie, they’ve got all the options to satisfy your hunger after hours. And the best part? They’re just a phone call away!

If you’re looking for the address, you can find Clay Oven at 166 Long Street. Give them a call at 024-424-7233 to place your order or get more information. So next time you find yourself wandering the streets at 2am, remember that Clay Oven is there to save you from the midnight munchies.
