If you are the kind of person who likes the thinnest crust, all blistery, Granello is your go-to pizza spot. They bill themselves as an Italian pizzeria, and they do make a lovely pizza napoletana topped with excellent sauce and beautifully stringy fior de latte. Their menu includes a pizza bianca (sauceless) and a truffle-heavy option. Then there’s the piccante, which features spicy salami and chili honey—a spicy-sweet condiment that just may become your new favourite pizza topping. But of course, you can’t go wrong with the classic marinara or margherita, because the sauce really is that good.


Grab a slice and keep exploring.

If you’re staying in Kifissia, Margherita is the place to go. Their menu is straightforward, with just pizzas, pastas, a few antipasti, and salads, but most of them feature locally-sourced ingredients from small Greek producers. This makes for some excellent sauce, the perfect base for their mostly simple toppings. The Neapolitan-style pizza is all wood-fired and the crust is just the right amount of charred. You can even go for a sweet option if you like. Next time I go, I will be tasting the “fico,” made with fig jam, basil, cheese from Lemnos, and buffalo cream. This is a sit-down place and you can’t order by the slice, but you won’t regret making a meal of it.

Crispy and delicious.

Pizza Dal Professore


Koukaki has everything you could want, from great Thai to cheap street food, but it was missing a pizza joint. Enter Tzaiant, a pizza shop right across the street from Bel Ray (and owned by the same people). The playful name is a Greek transliteration of the word “giant”—this place is tiny, with just three little tables inside and a few more out on the pedestrian street. It’s mostly takeaway, but if you’re stopping in for a quick bite you might find a seat. The crust is thin and crispy, and they use a lot of Greek ingredients, so you’ll find plenty of unusual toppings here, like beef cheeks and aubergines or four cheeses with fig. I always go for the anchovy and olive pizza, but I also love the broccoli and sausage combo, which is just the right side of spicy.
