Eating bread and tomato ketchup served in the name of pizza is every pizza connoisseur’s nightmare.
So, if you are on the lookout for some moreish pizza in Chennai, we have listed down a few tried and tested places, where you can dive right in, without worrying about it being another pizza-aster!
1. Lola’s Pizzeria

If you are stuck at home craving classic Italian pizza, then Lola’s Pizzeria should be on the top of your list.
While every order is packed to perfection and guaranteed to leave your taste buds happy, their Bufalina (buffalo mozzarella and olive oil) and Estiva (smoked mozzarella and artichokes) are a must-try for vegetarians. But the real deal is the Marcello Mastroianni which has tuna and is served with a generous drizzle of olive oil!
2. Tuscana Pizzeria

Looking to enjoy some great Italian food in a pristine Italian setting? Then look no further than Tuscana Pizzeria.
It is hard to pick a favourite in Tuscana but if you’re visiting for the first time, do not miss out on the Bolognese pizza that comes with chunks of delicious beef and loads of cheese. Also, save the best for the last and dig into their luscious panna cotta that is served with berry syrup.
Location: Wallace Garden, Akkarai ECR .
3. Superstar Pizza

If you love pizzas and Thalaivar, then look no further than Superstar Pizza to get your super-fix of both. From spicy Chandramukhi that will see you gulp down plenty of water to our ever-favourite classic Moondru Mugham, there is clearly a lot of thought that’s gone into matching Rajnikanth’s film titles with the pizza flavour.
Not just that, you also have life-size Thalaiva posters keeping you company, while you dig into the yummilicious-ness! Need we say more?
Location: Besant Nagar, Anna Nagar, Alwarpet and Egmore
4. The Fat Boy

The Fat Boy offers a diverse menu and there is a flavour to satiate even the pickiest of eaters. From the classic Happy Boy (onions, olives and jalapenos) to the Sardar Boy (tandoori sauce and paneer), or Gimme Boy (with pineapple) to Atta Boy (buffalo chicken), the menu is assorted and distinct. But if you are in the mood for some adventure, we’d suggest their super spicy ‘Hot Boy’ (It’s spicy AF!).
Location: Shenoy Nagar, Alwarpet
5. Chef Express

6. The Farm

If fresh pizza toppings are your thing, look no further than The Farm. The place serves lip-smacking wood-fired pizzas in a wide range of flavours (too many varieties, be warned).
What more? From the veggies to the cheese, most ingredients are either hand-picked from their own farm or curated in-house – An authentic experience you wouldn’t want to miss!
7. Double Roti

If you want pizza but your friend is hell-bent on having a burger, then look no further than Double Roti that serves the best of both varieties. The place serves delectable Italian and American fast foods, all the while staying true to its authentic taste.
Our favourite pizza from Double Roti has to be The Sicilian Girl… no, Bugsy… no, The Godfather… Ok, we are confused ‘cz we love ‘em all!
