CNR Café & Bistro

This relaxed bistro in Craighall Park serves modern South African dishes and boasts a deli and coffee shop with croissants, but that’s not why they are on this list. We’ve obviously mentioned them because they have some awesome pizzas if you have that cheesy craving! You can take your pick from a banting or wheat-free base if you have certain dietary requirements to keep in mind, and now for the best part: picking your pizza! One of our favourite combos on their pizza is the cream dipped buffalo milk mozzarella, prosciutto and shredded zucchini. Yum! So, if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by CNR Café & Bistro

Doppio Zero

No matter where you are in the city, there’s bound to be a Doppio Zero somewhere, ready and waiting to serve you delicious wood-fired pizzas so you can celebrate Pizza Day with your family and friends! We’re currently loving their Gaucho pizza topped with pulled wood-fired oxtail and short rib ragú, mushrooms, red onions, and a drizzle of chimichurri for a culinary delight that’s sure to tantalize your taste buds.

Or why not enjoy seafood on a pizza with their Tutti Frutti Di Mare, complete with calamari, calamari heads, prawn meat, mussels, garlic, parsley, and whole prawn(s). Stuck between two pizzas? Not a problem, order the Doppio and enjoy half of any two pizzas!

Well, why not take your pick from the Hollywood Scene​ (bacon, thyme, rosso onion, avo, crispy onion); the Norm’s Pralina, (butternut and tomato base, accentuated by roasted butternut, chili, feta, and pumpkin seed praline, while a finishing touch of rocket leaves) or the Moghul (Indian butter chicken, yoghurt, fior di latte mozzarella, coriander, crispy onion) But that’s not all!

Lupa Osteria

Bringing authentic Roman dining to the city, Lupa Osteria is just the place to visit if you’re looking to delight the taste buds with some hearty and full of flavour. We really love the sounds of The Amy (butternut, feta, caramelised onion, pumpkin seeds and rocket); and the Massimo Calzone (tomato, mozzarella, ham, mushrooms, feta, caramelised onions and Parmesan, served with sliced avo and brushed with garlic butter).

As they say, the proof is in the “pizza,” so you be the judge!

Behind the golf driving range in Fourways you will stumble across this hidden gem, The Local Kitchen Co. They have described themselves as a “gastro pub style dining” and offer patrons with a variety of draught beer, wines and gins. It’s also the perfect spot to catch a sunset! Enjoy a mouth-watering wood fire pizza, their Trump Tower pizza with pepperoni, sundried tomatoes, and feta.

Nothing beats a pizza straight out of the oven!

They have a wood-fired oven that produces pizza with an incredibly thin and crispy base. Enjoy their pizza with toppings such as a the slow cooked free range beef with fresh mozzarella, red onions and fresh rocket menu item.
