People often ask what they should look for in a good pizza. For me I look out for everything; the crust, the sauce, the mozzarella cheese, the topping combination and even the presentation.
There are quite a number of pizzerias in Lagos Nigeria, but these pizza spots have stayed consistent and have delivered value; be it for a late-night hangout, dining in with your friends or even home delivery. Here are some of my recommended spots in no particular order;
Blame it on the Nigerian in me, but the chicken suya and Margherita pizza I had at Cilantro Lagos has to be some of the best I have had. The crust was wood-fired, thin and crisp, and they were quite generous with the toppings. The indoor space and service made it a memorable pizza experience.
Cilantro Restaurant is located at Musa Yar’adua street, Victoria Island Lagos and it is one of the best spots to enjoy pizza in Lagos.
Their pizza prices range from N4,500 to N7,500; reasonable pricing in my opinion.
Located at Victoria Island Lagos, Pizzeriah is that spot that delivers when it comes to genuine Italian pizza. With decent pricing, they have won the heart of many (myself included).They have an indoor and outdoor dining area where you can order in and eat. However, I recommend take outs. The pizza is prepared outdoors and you can see how it is made.
Their pizza price ranges from N3,500 to N6,000.
La Veranda is a restaurant in the heart of VI fully focused on Italian cuisine so it’s little wonder that they made this list. They do a great job with their pizzas and have quite a number of italian varieties, the restaurant has a sweet and welcoming ambience. I highly recommend you confirm your toppings before placing an order- to be sure it suits your taste buds as they aim to offer authentic Italian pizzas. Their pizza pricing starts from N4,500.
This restaurant made the list because they do a fantastic job when it comes to making the pizza crust!
Godaif Village is a family restaurant situated in Ikoyi Lagos with a cafe; a poolside and an outdoor dining area. They are known for their pizzas and whenever I visit, I always spot pizzas being stacked up on their delivery bikes.
Their pizza price ranges from N6,500 to N11,000 and you can customise your pizza toppings. The waiters are helpful in recommending the combination of your pizza toppings.
Located at Five Spaces Victoria Island, Lagos. Sketch Lagos is a new 2D/3D restaurant which is Egyptian themed and serves an array of intercontinental dishes and Egyptian meals.
During my visit to this restaurant, I had quite a lot to eat and drink but the pizza stood out, it was so delicious and cheesy. The pizza here is not “cheap” as it ranges from N9,000 to N11,700.
There are quite a number of restaurants serving pizzas in Lagos and I want to try out more spots however, these are my go-to guys for now! Have you been to any of these pizza spots in Lagos?
