The Best Pizza in Perth

Updated 4 months ago


Neapolitan-style pizza – woodfired, crisp at the edges, pliant in the middle – used to dominate Perth's restaurants. Now though, a new generation has being doing some tinkering. The results are interesting – it’s now easy to find pizzas that go toe-to-toe with the best Neapolitan interpretations, despite being cooked in electric ovens or using something other than the revered San Marzano tomato.

Whatever type of pizza you like, Perth has it. American? Yep. Classic Roman? Yep. Vegan? Of course. We like them all, so long as they're well-made. Here's where to find the city's finest pizzaiolos doing their thing.

  • The pies here are biscuity and well-sauced. And the toppings are sparse and feature Mediterranean-inspired combinations such as pork and fennel sausage, roast onions and salsa verde.

  • Head to Beaufort Street for a deep-dive into the wonders of "nuovo Italo-Australian" pizza.

  • On weekends, this rocking and rolling live music spot serves pizza late (late) into the night.

  • A relaxed pizzeria specialising in wood-fired Neapolitan pies.

  • Well-tanned pies and a solid drinks list makes this CBD bunker an irresistible option for the white-collar set.

  • A boisterous, family-friendly eatery, hidden down an alleyway. You bring the booze: Rossonero will supply the elegant, lightweight pies.

  • A neighbourhood coffee joint beside Hyde Park that serves brunch in the morning and pizza at night.

  • The (BYO) neighbourhood pizzeria that's on every suburb's wish list. Bookings are pretty much essential, even on weekdays.

  • Come for late-night pizza sold by the pie or slice: stay for the great drinks and toe-tapping soundtrack.

  • Looking for a good time? Every night is a party at this lively, BYO pizzeria hidden in a suburban warehouse.

  • A pretty good (read: great) pizza bar next to Northbridge's Ruin Bar. Get your pizza hit by the pie or slice and wash it down with an impressive array of tap and packaged beers. The resident beer vending machine is a novelty you won't tire of.

  • This suburban takeaway joint serves some of the city’s mightiest porchetta panini. Alongside that, it sells slabs of Roman-style pizza with house-made sausage, plus changing pasta and street-food specials.

  • This charming 50-seater trades in retro Aussie-style pizzas, Italian small plates and a tight drinks list packed with value and deliciousness. Plus, a regional American style of pizza with limited servings per day.

  • This takeaway pizza joint, from the crew behind neighbouring Casa, serves blistery pies that are just as good after the drive home. Perfectly puffy pies, inventive toppings and biodynamic wines await.
