Foodie Edit: 3 Of The Best Pizza Places In The Middle East

These foodie spots challenge Italy in the pizza stakes.

Whether you’re partial to a deep pan, Roman-style squares or you’re a loyal thin and crispy fan, most of us can I agree on one thing – a mutual love for pizza.

One of Italy’s most famous foodie exports, the humble pie’s roots date back to 1889 when the first pizza is said to have been made to honour the Queen consort of Italy, Margherita of Savoy. Consisting of baked dough garnished with tomatoes and basil to represent the colours of the Italian flag, this foodie favourite has undoubtedly come a long way since with limitless options.

From stuffed crusts filled with melted cheese to gluten-free bases and a seemingly never-ending variety of toppings, we have tried them all to report back on the top three places for pizza fans to try across the Middle East. 

California Pizza Kitchen 


Serving up some of the tastiest slices in town, California Pizza Kitchen in Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif is a relaxed spot for all to enjoy and one of the best restaurants in Dubai to take your children.

The casual eatery is well loved for its classic Margherita (take your pick from either hand-tossed original crust or thin and crispy), but delve further into the vast menu and try the spicy chipotle chicken and fire-roasted vegetable options.

800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza Dubai


Whipped up fresh using high-quality ingredients shipped straight from Naples, 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza is one of the best places to grab an authentic slice of pie. 

Build your pizza from an extensive selection of toppings (think rosemary turkey and smoked provolone) or opt for baked pasta, burratas, salads or grilled meat mains. We’ve chomped our way through the entire menu, and we’re delighted customers!
