Ask a Delhizen where youre likely to get the best pizzas in Delhi, and youll have a divided house pretty fast. While several normcore people will throw out the one name that everyone tends to (it's on our list) and the self-professed hipsters unearth the two other names that vie for top billing (one of which is also on our list), weve curated 10 places that will bring you a pie to write home about.

You may not see a couple of presumed favourites on this curation, but thats only because popular consensus agreed that theyve depreciated in that special something that made them brilliant over the years or were never worth the hype in the first place. The ones that did make the cut, however, know exactly how to make a pizza pie that deserves both a repeat visit, and repeated Instagram topshots.

Ask a Delhiite where youll get the best pizza in the city, and the answer youll get on loop is most people dont know of it, but Leos. The textured paned windows, wooden benches and warehouse vibe of this Vasant Vihar spot are only part of the draw of this favoured pizzeria. Its their woodfired pizzas, with a crust to die for, buffalo mozzarella and a non-overbearing tomato base, that makes regulars of people. Getting the pepperoni is a non-negotiable.

Address: 28, Basant Lok Market, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi

Phone Number: +91 9821277236

Cost For Two: 1,700 for two people (approx.)

One of the OG pizza spots in the city to do woodfired thin crusts, Amici may have seen a lot of (strong) competition turn up, but it hasn't lost its mojo. Their classic Capricciosa (Italian ham, black olives, artichoke, mushrooms) is still a crowd favourite, as is the Spinach and Goat Cheese, with its divine red wine onions. If youre the dude on a diet whos just trying a slice, they do a mean Smoked Salmon and Avo salad too.

Address: 8, Defence Colony Main Market, Defence Colony, New Delhi

Phone Number: 8, Defence Colony Main Market, Defence Colony, New Delhi

Cost For Two: 1,200 for two people (approx.)

You might think this Qutub veteran is on the list because were besotted by its beautiful outdoor space and Grecian blue and white aesthetic, but ask any real Olive fan, and the the thing theyre likely to have ordered the most is their delicate, elfin pizzas. The German Tarte Flambe Pizza, with its crumbled sausages, bacon rashers and sour cream, is easily top of the charts. Pair with a gin cocktail for best results.

Address: 6-8, Kalka Das Marg, Mehrauli, New Delhi

Phone Number:+91 9810235472; 011 29574444

Cost For Two: 4,000 for two people (approx.)

Possibly still quite undiscovered except for that series of pizza fanatics that go beyond the places that have become pop culture icons, EVOO (which stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil). We love this sweet, happily sunlit place with its chalkboard specials and its Evoo-drizzled pies. While the pasta might leave a little to be desired, the Pistachio & Pesto pizza (rosemary, green olives and ricotta, best with an add on of bacon chips) and Pork Calabrioan pizza (smoked pork calabrian sausage, pancetta) more than make up for it.

Address: B-2, Ground Floor, Shivalik, Near Sri Aurobindo College, Geetanjali Pancheel Road, Geetanjali Enclave, New Delhi

Phone Number: +91 8368428737

011 41662030

Cost For Two: 1,500 for two people (approx.)

To curate this list without including the original big daddy of traditional Italian would just be shoddy research. Head to this nuanced restaurant if the rendition youre after is more haute cuisine than happy comfort. The Pizza Emiliana (parma ham, rucola, parmesan) ends up in a photo finish for the best on the list with the Quatro Formaggi (mozzarella, parmesan, smoked scamorza, blue cheese).

Address: Hyatt Regency, Bhikaji Cama Place, New Delhi

Phone Number: 011 26791234

Cost For Two: 4,500 for two people (approx.)

Sure, they might be delivery only but Napoli manages to zip over a quality pizza to South Delhi diners swiftly enough to make it a go-to for Netflix and actual chill day. Their base is comforting, they never skimp on toppingsorder a Meat Lovers pizza and theyll throw on enough bacon and pepperoni to feed a small countryand they almost always turn up hot. Their calzones are both ricotta-full and wonderful, but be prepared to make an absolute mess when you eat them.

Address: Delivers In and around Safdarjung

Phone Number: 011 40517365

Cost For Two: 800 for two people (approx.)

It would be remiss to not mention this iconic eatery on our list of best pizzaand, in this city, asking to be crucified. The charming, movie-themed restaurant does their Italian a touch more cheesily than the more authentic restaurants, but we love them for it. Their garlic salami and black olive pizza is fantastic, but were fans of the four-fourths pizza that divides four meats into two slices eachbasically giving you four types of pizza slices in the same pie. A Belgian chocolate shake with it completes the indulgence.

Address: 68-A, Khan Market, New Delhi

Phone Number: 011 41757588

Cost For Two: 1,500 for two people (approx.)

Youd imagine a jack of all trades like The Oberois all-day diner wouldnt make it to a best-of-the-best- list, but they surprise us every time. The thin, light and beautifully done pizzas at 360 definitely make the cut for the best in the cityin particular the Tricolore (spinach, feta, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts) and Burrata and Arugula.

Address: The Oberoi, Dr. Zakir Hussain Marg, New Delhi

Phone Number: 011 24363030

Cost For Two: 5,000 for two people (approx.)

From its fat cursive font at the door to its warm wooden interiors and triangular trusses, everything about Fat Lulus is comforting and easy. The perfect space to kick back with a thick shake (Nutella and Salted Caramel, anyone) and a pie, this will always be in our top spots for its brilliant Polop pizza (Katsu chicken in teriyaki with sesame seeds) and Butter Chicken Masala za. A side of their Pomme Frites doesnt hurt if youre okay to carbo-load.

Address: C 7, Commercial Complex, SDA Market, SDA, New Delhi

Phone Number: +91 9599288395

Cost For Two: 800 for two people (approx.)

Sure, this place is already on our list of most romantic places in the city, but it isnt too focussed on creating a quality date night vibe to forget how to make a quality pizza pie. While we definitely love the intimate atmosphere, the wood-fired pizza is definitely one of their big sells. Try the A La Spagnola (Spanish chorizo, gorgonzola) if youre a meat-eater, or the Basilica (basil pesto, artichoke hearts, French goat cheese) if youd rather keep it green.

Address: 10/48, Malcha Marg Shopping Complex, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi

Phone Number: +91 9810877553

Cost For Two: 2,400 for two people (approx.)
