Depending on what toppings you choose, there are endless variations on pizzas. Some like their crusts thick and stuffed, while some prefer them thin and crisp. Toppings, however, are where the city’s best pizzerias get creative. Across Hong Kong, pizzas are forever the popular choice on a night out, best enjoyed piping hot fresh out the oven, digging in while the edges are just charred and cheese molten and soft. Below are our picks for the best pizzas you can find in Hong Kong.
Umberto Bombana’s casual Italian dining establishment is home to the city’s most popular pasta and pizza offerings. Much attention is spent over the formation of the homemade pizza dough, which are made in house with a slow 36 hour proofing process which yields a good rise and chewy texture of the wheat pizza dough. Margherita pizza is the grand standard at CIAK, but it is the Prosciutto and Formaggi pizza that capture the hearts of many. Guests who crave variety in their pizzas can also choose a half-half option. For a taste of luxury, CIAK’s signature Tartufo Nero is beautifully craved with toppings such as sausage, mozzarella, taleggio cheese, mozzarella, and Italian egg yolk and freshly shaved black truffles.
