The guide to the best pizza in Stockholm
Updated 27 Jan 2020
Can't live without your monthly, weekly or daily doses of pizza? No judgement - neither can we. Stockholm boasts an abundance of pizza restaurants, regardless you're in the mood for wafer-thin or thicker crust, extra sauce or more cheese, simple-and-plain or loaded with toppings. The offering ranges from sleek industrial-style pizza restaurants to casual joints NYC-style. We just so happen to be self-taught pizza connoisseurs and have done the not-so-painstaking work of narrowing it down the best pizza in Stockholm for you.
Authentic Napolitan posh pizzas
With their authentic Neopolitan pizzas - fired in a specially imported pizza oven from Naples - Meno Male have quickly established themselves as one of Stockholm's favourite pizza joints, and it's not hard to see why. As well as their regular pizzas, you can also compose your own dream pizza from three toppings of your choice.

The decor pays homage to the restaurant's genuine Italian heritage.
