Top 8 Places for Great Pizza in Penang
Slice, slice, baby! That’s right- all you pizza lovers, this article is for you. Check out these Top 8 Places for Great Pizza in Penang!
1. US Pizza
Pop by US Pizza for original hand-tossed pizza made with premium flour that makes the best American pizza you’ll ever have. While they have familiar toppings like pepperoni and triple cheese, we recommend you get the Salted Egg Pizza.
The creaminess from the egg complements the cheese perfectly! We hear they serve up really good wings that will have you licking your fingers by the end of the meal. Don’t miss out on the Durian Pizza- it’s gotten mixed reviews, but it would be a shame not to try!
Address: 3-D, Lorong Delima 1 Jelutong, 11600 George Town
Hours: 10.30 AM – 10.15 PM
2. Lunarich Malaysia Pizza & Pasta
Ciao bella! Come dine at the Lunarich Malaysia Pizza & Pasta for authentic Italian cuisine. The Margherita Pizza here comes with high praise, and it’s a staple order for most regular patrons. This classic and evergreen dish is a Neapolitan dream, made with sweet San Marzano tomatoes, stringy mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and a whole lot of olive oil. All ingredient are flown in and are of the best quality. Enjoy!
Address: Gurney Paragon, Pesiaran Gurney, George Town, 10250 Greentown, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 11.00 AM – 10.00 PM
3. Restorante Bella Italia Pizzeria
The humble setting of this restaurant is similar to those pizza parlours down the cobbled streets of Italy.
We think it’s the perfect spot for a date! Get a plate of fried calamari for starters before you dig into their famous Salmon Pizza. The freshness of the thick cuts of salmon atop the crispy bread will be worth your money.
Finish your meal with a generous serving of Tiramisu made with mascarpone cheese.
Address: 368-1-7, Jalan Burma, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 11.30 AM – 3.00 PM, 6 – 10.30 PM
4. Pizza Station
This local pizza spot has been open for more than ten years- so you know you’re in for good pizza. Get the local favourite, the Flaming Chicken.
We think this pizza is great with the Extreme Cheese crust- you’ll get a drool-worthy cheese pull. The dough is evenly spread with a layer of spicy tomato sauce, followed by grated mozzarella.
On top of this, you’re treated with chunks of spicy chicken, pineapples, green peppers, button mushrooms and onions. Perfection!
Address: Lot G-2, Sunshine Farlim, 294, Jalan Thean Teik, Bandar Baru Air Itam, 11500 Ayer Itam, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 12.00 PM – 10.00 PM
5. Syed’s Street Pizza
This pizza spot is perfect on those days you just want to kick back and relax- especially after a long day. The layout of this pizza spot is spacious, so it’s great if you’re coming in a big group.
We hear good things about the Veggie Pizza here- although a simple dish, you’ll notice the fresh ingredients and you’ll love the cheese pull!
Address: Mukim Tanjung Tokong , Cubopark, Kampung Raya Baharu, 10470 George Town
Hours: 4.00 PM – 12.00 PM
6. Barista Café & Casa de Pizzeria
Nestled in the heritage trail zone of Georgetown, Penang- walk in for great coffee and even better pizza. We think the Barista Café & Casa de Pizzeria is a good spot to hit when you’re looking for breakfast options.
The English Breakfast Pizza is one of their many highlights, and we think you should give it a try. The game-changer in this menu item is the sunny side up egg right in the middle of the pizza. What’s not to love about runny yolk?
Address: 133, Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, George Town, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 11.00 AM – 11.00 PM
Give the Smoked Chicken pizza a try while you’re here. Patrons all around suggest you get the thin crust pizza for maximum flavour. We think the complexity in the smoked chicken is totally worth the visit, especially when you think about the great deals you’re signing up for. This pizza spot is worth your money!
Address: 17A, Batu Lancang Highway, Taman Sri Damai, 11600 George Town, Penang
Hours: 10.30 AM – 7.30 PM
8. The Loft – Love Lane
Although a fairly new pizza spot in Penang, The Loft has undoubtedly made a name for itself with the variety of high-quality pizzas they make on the daily. If you’re new here, we recommend you get the Al Funghi. This pizza comes with a plethora of fresh mushrooms that pairs exceptionally well with the sharp tomato base sauce. Don’t get us started on the cheese!
