– TOP 5s: PIZZA PLACES –
“there’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.” – Kevin James
At the end of every month, I throw out a list of my top five favorite things that I try to blog about. For the month of July, I have chosen to write about what I may possibly have a small obsession with eating: pizza.
Pizza is one of those things that can never go wrong. They can come in all shapes and sizes (thin, stuffed, creamy, dry, square, circle, vegetarian, crispy, big, small, plain, etc..) as well as different forms such as Neapolitan, Calzone or deep dish. There’s always something for everyone.
Whatever the occasion or situation, pizza can always solve it. Hungry? Pizza. Not in a mood for something super greasy? Pizza (Oven-baked organic, of course). Sudden gathering? Pizza. Corporate meeting? Pizza. Suffering from mood swings? Pizza. Ending world hunger? Pizza.
I often opt for fast and cheap(er) pizzerias in Dubai for satisfying my taste buds. To get to my point, I have made a short list of my top pizza spots for my regular fixes. In no specific order:
At Papa John’s we are committed to Quality, we use only the finest ingredients from fresh-sliced vegetables to our fresh, never-frozen, hand tossed dough and superior quality tomato sauce. People Are Priority Always (PAPA). Our success depends upon our ability, as a team, to work together to achieve our goals and expectations.
I tend to go a little crazy for Papa John’s pizzas. There’s an outlet near where I live and that’s not necessarily a good thing because I would end up ordering from there every so often (actually, more than often). Not to mention that their Garlic Mayo sauce adds a whole new flavor to their creamy and delicious pizzas.
Recommendation: Spicy Chicken Ranch Pizza
For the hospitality. For the friendship. For the deep-down, soul-satisfying goodness of our classic deep dish. For the inventiveness and tastiness of our seafood, salads and thin crust pizzas. For the feeling you get when you know you’ve come to the right place. Because we all need something really good to eat.
Many people in Dubai would recognize UNO Chicago Grill for their deep dish Chicago style pizza and that’s because it’s exceptional. I honestly did not expect to try a pizza so rich in texture and flavor and not feel sick after eating it. UNO’s pizza will make you realize that you’ve done the right choice.
Recommendation: Chicken Fajita Deep Dish Pizza
Since 2006, we have been known for using the finest ingredients when serving all items of our menu. We are proud to mention that we use a stone oven to make your favorite pizza. From Dubai, we continue to make our customers satisfied and keep coming back for more of their favorite pizza, pasta dishes and even the grilled subs.
Pizza Pub is a Dubai based pizzeria located in a junction between Jumeirah, Bur Dubai, Satwa and Karama (Mina Road) which might make it a little difficult to locate, however, visiting it is a must. Their pizza selection the isn’t the only thing they take pride in and I would definitely know.
Recommendation: Chicken Alfredo Pizza
Fellow blogger I Live in a Frying Pan disagrees.
Red Tomato Pizza Restaurant brings to Dubai, true Italian cuisine prepared to the most authentic details. Our pizza crusts are made with fresh, hand tossed dough, topped with premium ingredients and then baked in the famous authentic Italian woodfired oven. With 32 unique combinations for you to choose from, we promise we’ll keep blowing your mind with our oven hot pizzas!
If pizza is not your thing, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our menu features a diverse selection of soups, pastas, breads, fresh salads, drinks and desserts. There is nothing quite like the taste of flame kissed Italian style cooking!
Honestly, that description says it all.
Recommendation: ‘Spinaci e Ricotta’ Spinach and Ricotta Pizza
At Round Table, we’ve enjoyed a heritage of creating high quality, innovative pizzas for over 51 years. From our founder Bill Larson’s first little Round Table Pizza Parlor in Menlo Park, California in 1959 to 500 thriving restaurants today, Round Table has always stood for freshness, innovation and craveable flavors in everything we serve. While we’re proud of the ingredients we use, Round Table is more than just freshness and quality.
This pizzeria has existed in Dubai for as long as I could remember. I cherish this place especially for the memories it brings to me and for the spot my grandmother held in her heart for Round Table Pizza. A lot of sentimental value right there. And of course, their fresh products and high quality pizza never leave you feeling queasy after eating.
Recommendation: Gourmet Veggie Pizza
