LBB recommends these places where you can sink your teeth into cheese-laden slices of heaven {Thin crust or deep dish. We love both.} and worry about the cholesterol much, much later.

A secret find, all the way on Hennur Main Road, Koel’s Pizzeria sure knows how to pack a punch within 11 measly inches. Their New York-style pizza by the slice is rather on point.

Pizza Stop

Going green? Then check out the vegetarian line-up at Pizza Stop. The usual suspects like mozzarella, mushrooms, fresh herbs, and good old paneer come together to give you spectacular pizzas. Their Mediterranean pizza is our favourite with a topping which is a medley of artichokes, oregano, olives, Mozzarella and tomato sauce.

Oven-fresh thin-crust pizzas {you get whole wheat and gluten-free versions as well} speckled with fresh herbs and choice ingredients are on offer here. The 4 cheese pizza, seafood with shrimp, calamari and coriander, and the spicy barbeque chicken pizzas are all winners.

Tall glasses of freshly-brewed beer go perfectly with the pizzas they have on offer. For the vegetarians, there is the signature Tartufo that comes with simply delicious burnt garlic and mushroom toppings that is then drizzled with truffle oil. The lamb, fig and cheese combo too is a well-loved one.

Toscano

Pizzas, at Toscano, are stone-baked, thin crust, and hand-stretched for maximum deliciousness. While here, do dig into the Quattro Stagioni, which comes with olives, artichokes, mushrooms, broccoli and the underlying sweetness of balsamic-glazed figs.

Olive Beach

With Olive Beach’s pizza menu, you get a riot of flavours, to say the least. Take the Capriccioso, for example. It comes with Prosciutto Cotto Ham and the freshness of olives, tomatoes, and artichoke hearts along with a soft boiled egg. The Parma Ham Fig {delicious ham along with slices of sweet, grilled figs, and argula} is a winner. But for true indulgence, we suggest you blindly pick the Spicy Salami, Bacon, and Dry Fennel Pizza.

Brik Oven

This cosy place isn’t even two years old, but it seems like it’s been around long enough to have become the favourite of most Bangaloreans. Be it the simple Margherita or Pepperoni or the extravagant Marinara, Streaking Pigs, Piadina or The Beach, these wood-fired pizzas are as close to Italy as possible. Everything is made in-house by the two chefs Anirudh and Anvesh, so best to go to the pizzeria and eat it fresh. You may have to wait a bit, but it’s worth your while. Try their indulgent milkshakes when here too.
