    Pizza truly is the best thing to ever happen to us, and in the interest of all vegetarians (and then some more) in Mumbai, we have compiled a list of our favourite vegetarian pizzas. Find the cheesiest to ones with insane toppings, all here. 

    Quattro Formaggi, 1Tablespoon

    For the many days when we have needed a slice, just a slice – it has been 1 Tablespoon that has come to our rescue with their delicious vegetarian pizzas, with just the right crust. Not too thin, not too thick. Our suggestion? Apart from their classic New Style Pizza, go for their Quattro Formaggi with multiple types of cheese, exotic herbs like chives with a mild smoky flavour.

    Price:
    INR 530 for an 11-inch whole wheat crust

    Paneer Makhni Pizza At Joey's

    Joey's Pizza

    Andheri West, Mumbai

    Ask anyone in Malad or Andheri about their favourite pizza, and a unanimous cheese-loving voice will say ‘Joey’s’. A small joint, Joey’s has not just a loyal fan base, but a lot in its favour. First off, they’re not stingy with their toppings, add a lot of cheese and the pizzas are rather filling. Though most known for their meaty toppings, the paneer makhani pizza with tandoori sauce paneer tikka, capsicum and onion is amazing.
    Word for the wise? This one’s for those who like their crusts thick and greasy.

    Price: INR 255 for a small pizza

    Bombay Masala At Pizza By The Bay

    Pizza By The Bay

    Californian At Ray's Pizzeria

    Ray’s is a small, non-fuss and a much-loved pizza joint tucked away in Hill Road, Bandra. While we do have a hard time picking just one, the California pizza is what we'd recommend. A classic pizza with traditional pizza sauce with a flavourful blend of toppings including sun dried tomatoes, artichokes and parmesan cheese.

    Pizza Primavera, Francesco’s Pizzeria

    Stella Pizza, Gustoso

    Another classic eatery for their special wood fired pizza, Gustoso can't be missed out. A cheese-lover’s fantasy, the Stella pizza at Gustoso is a star-shaped pizza. The crust is filled with ricotta, scarmoza and mozarella cheese, their signature tomato sauce & some arugula leaves.

    The pizza here is wood-fired and the dough is spongy and fresh. If you like the crust crispy and thin, this isn’t the pizza for you as it’s quite soft to eat.
