Crispy, crusty and delightfully cheesy – who can resist a well-made pizza, particulalry when it ticks all the right boxes? If you’re in Phuket and you’ve got the munchies for a cheesy slice or two, here’s where to go for some of the best pizzas on the island:
Pizzeria Agli Amici, Phuket Town
Forget things like ambience, decoration or a great location – at Pizzeria Agli Amici, it’s the food that keeps diners coming back for more. The focus here is on traditional Italian cooking, with the occasional dash of local flavours to give the dishes a Thai twist.
In the mood for pizzas? You’ve definitely arrived at the right place. Pizzas here come in small, regular or large sizes. The crust is thin and crispy, and toppings are kept simple and light. If you’re unsure of what to order, stick to the signatures. ‘Jimmy’ comes topped off with a rocket salad, buffalo mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, while a flavourful combination of mozzarella, blue cheese, onion and walnuts fill up the crust of ‘Amici’.
If you want to round out the meal with something sweet, tiramisu’s always a good choice. Balance the sweetness with the strong, aromatic flavours of an Italian espresso.

Capannina by Limoncello, Kata
The sunny yellow walls and modern decor at Capannina by Limoncello creates a cheerful setting; this is well-matched with the lively vibes and friendly service provided by the staff. The wood fired ovens churns out servings of flavorful pizzas. For an indulgent treat, go for something decadently cheesy, like the buffalo mozzarella pizza. If in doubt of what to pick, a classic, like the magherita, always does the trick.
Got a member of your dining party that’s not in the mood for pizzas? There’s plenty on the menu to keep all tastebuds at the table tickled and pleased. Ravenous appetites will be satisfied with a hearty pasta dish, while diners with a preference for lighter options may settle for a wholesome salad.

Crust, Phuket Town
Crust gets all the fundamentals right; pizza crusts here have the right thickness, pastas are perfectly al dente, and fresh, quality ingredients are used. You’ll find a good selection of traditional flavours on the menu, such as the delightfully tasty four cheese, good ol’ funghi or savoury picante. Diners who like their pizzas rich and creamy will want to opt for one of the white pizzas (a luscious combination of ricotta and mozzarella replaces tomato sauce in a white pizza). Savoury palates will be pleased with toppings of smoked salmon and brie, or mushrooms with white truffle. Bring some greens to the table by ordering a salad or two.
