This pizza and pasta joint has several locations all over Joburg. Which is great, because then we can grab some of their yummy food no matter where we are.

But all of these pizzas are delicious in their own right.

Doppio Zero

We love the vegan range at Doppio Zero, featuring delectable bowls, wraps, burgers, curries and pasta. But have you tried their vegan pizza? If not, you should.
