Top 10 Pizza Places in Jerusalem

A Selection of the Best Pizza Restaurants in Jerusalem.

Before discussing which are the best pizza places in Jerusalem, I need to make one important caveat. I grew up in London where pizza is Italian food. Just like hummus and falafel in the middle east, everyone has their favorite place and you will never get everyone to agree. So I want to make it very clear that this is my personal selection. My criteria for good pizza are a nice crispy base, good flavor sauce and fresh and gooey cheese.

Here is my list of the best pizzas in Jerusalem:

  1. La Piedra (Mehadrin)

In my option, La Piedra is the best pizza restaurant in Jerusalem. As well as enjoying the pizza, I also like the salads, which are perfect to share along with the pizza. It is a nice and cozy place for dinner. They do not deliver but do offer take away. Pizzas range in price from NIS 38 to 60. La Piedra English menu can be found here.

La Piedra, 1 Agron Street, 1 700 505 678.

  1. Craft Pizza (Mehadrin)

Craft Pizza serves pizza by the slice, with a great flavor and lovely sourdough base. As well as traditional options, more unusual toppings include grilled courgette, beetroot, kalamata olives, pineapple and chili, with a great spicy salsa on the side. A slice of margherita pizza is NIS 14.  Craft Restaurant will soon be opening on Shlomztion Street.

Free delivery for orders over NIS 90, 11 am – 10 pm, Craft Pizza online menu.

Craft Pizza, 12 HaTapuach Street, Shuk Machane Yehuda, 02 663 3847.

  1. Metudela Pizza

The expression not judging a book by its cover really applies to this store. I walked past so many times without being tempted to try the pizza until a friend told me I had to and I couldn’t believe how good it was. They have round and rectangular pizza pies with a crispy base and some great flavor toppings. My favorite is the pizza bianca with a cream sauce and I love the potato, cauliflower and roasted pepper toppings.

  1. Pizzeria Flora (Dairy Not Supervised)

The original branch of Pizzeria Flora near the shuk has a fun atmosphere and good food. The traditional Neapolitan pizza is available with a selection of fixed toppings, including my favorite portobello mushrooms, champignon & truffle oil (NIS 57). You can also build your own pizza with the usual classic toppings, as well as some more interesting toppings such as zucchini, garlic confit, blue cheese, asparagus and soft boiled egg. They also serve amazing complimentary home-made chocolate truffles with the bill.

Insider tip: if you prefer a bar vibe, you can sit in HaTipa bar next to Flora HaDekel branch and have your pizza delivered to the bar.

Flora has a second branch on Rehov Azza which is larger than the original branch. Flora English menu can be found here.

Pizzeria Flora, 2 HaDekel Street, 02 622 2216; 25 Azza Street, 02 664 5533, order online.

  1. P2 (Not Kosher)

P2 serves Italian thin-crust pizza in the heart of Jerusalem and they also have gluten-free pizza. Other interesting dishes include panzanella salad, calzone and gnocchi. The P2 English menu is available on their website, and every dish can be ordered as a vegan or gluten-free option for no extra charge. They recently started delivering to most of Jerusalem.

Delivery charge of NIS 15 to Rehavia, Talbieh, Baka, German Colony, Rasco, Nayot & City Center. Delivery charge of NIS 25 to Beit Hakerem & Arnona, midday to 9 pm,  02 563 5555.

P2, 36 Keren Hayesod Street, 02 563 5555. The restaurant is open on Shabbat but they do not deliver.

  1. Junior Pizza (Not Kosher)

A pizza parlor in Rehavia from the owner of Burger Room, Talbieh and Wine Bar. The pizzas are extra-large (2-3 people for a meal), with some interesting toppings including brie cheese, tartufo, maple-glazed pumpkin, spicy Indian butter chicken, Bolognese and calamari. They also serve spicy wings, Caesar salad and sausages.

Junior Pizza, 1 HaRav Berlin Street (corner of Azza), 02 540 8480. Hebrew menu and order delivery online.

  1. Domino’s Pizza (Not Kosher)

The chef pizza by Asaf Granit at Domino’s Pizza are pretty good but their customer service is appalling and they frequently make mistakes with the deliveries so be aware of this when ordering from them. Online ordering is only in Hebrew.

Domino’s Pizza, 122 Herzl Boulevard; 1 Etsel Street; 25 Rivka Street, 1700 70 70 70.

  1. Chili Pizza (Not Kosher)

Chili Pizza has been around for several years. The fast-food place serves a traditional range of toppings to satisfy non-kosher consumers, such as ham and pineapple, pepperoni and cheese, bacon and eggs, and spicy beef and sweetcorn. They have ready-made pizzas by the slice and but the freshly made individual pizzas are much better, although I find the base undercooked. They also have some pasta and dessert on the menu.

Delivery  7 days a week, order online. Chili Pizza English menu.

Chili Pizza, 28 Hillel Street, 02 625 4040

There is a new place on Shoshan Street called Anthony’s Pizza (Mehadrin). It is too new to add to this list but it is worth knowing about. Anthony’s Pizza English menu and delivery online via 10bis.

Other places with good pizza on the menu:

  1. Waffle Factory (Kosher)

It might be best known for desserts, but the main menu at Waffle Factory has some great options.  I particularly like the sautéed mushroom pizza (NIS 66) which is full of flavor and is a great white-base pizza. More pizza options can be found on the Waffle Factory English menu and a full review here.

Waffle Factory, Cinema City, 10 Sderot Yitshak Rabin, 02 625 5906

  1. Food Time Jerusalem (Mehadrin)

Food Time is an Italian-style social cafe in conjunction with the Shekel Association. Their pizza has a sourdough crust, which is perfectly crispy on the bottom while still being slightly doughy. It is on a par with some of the best pizzas in Jerusalem. You can read a full review of Food Time Jerusalem here.

Food Time Jerusalem, 11 Yad Harutzim Street, 050 436 2885.

  1. A major omission is Red Pizza in the German Colony. It’s mix of sauce and cheese is perfect. My wife is from New Haven Connecticut which has the best pizza in the world and she agrees with your number 1, but Red is definitely #2. You should try it.

  2. Mehadrin/ On Betzalel about 2 years – called 770 Pizza – the crust well baked / juicy filling- try it

  3. You need to try Anthony’s pizza on shoshan street in the city center- it just opened and it’s amazing 🙂

  4. Rendez Vous is the best pizza in Jerusalem (in this poster’s unhumble opinion at least).
