📍Reinier Claeszenstraat 10, 1056 WJ
Faam has to be one of the most inviting pizzerias in Amsterdam, with a gorgeous rustic restaurant and food that just screams “eat me”. It’s classic, fresh Italian food cooked to perfection.
You can expect delicious antipasti like carpaccio and burrata, quality wine and tasty pizza which is, of course, cooked in a proper pizza oven. For dessert, you can choose from a selection of irresistible dishes or finish with a scroppino, which is lemon sorbet mixed with vodka and prosecco. Perfect for a summer day.
2. De Pizzabakkers Willemsparkweg
📍Willemsparkweg 178, 1071HV
At De Pizzabakkers, you are guaranteed a warm, welcoming atmosphere and service with a smile. There are twelve pizzas on the menu and every month they add a delicious special, too.
At lunchtime, you can also enjoy fluffy, crispy ciabatta and the range of tasty proseccos is unbeatable. Just ask your waiter and they will help you choose the perfect pairing for your meal. You can order anything from the menu to take away, which is fantastic if you want to enjoy a slice outside in the sun.
📍Bilderdijkstraat 92, 1053 KX
NNea has been named the top pizzeria in the Netherlands for two consecutive years and it’s been featured in the list of best pizzas in Europe for four consecutive years. So, you can be sure to grab a quality slice at this top pizza spot.
They prove the dough for more than 50 hours, which is some serious dedication to pizza! In particular, the list of the best pizzas in Europe highlights the Orange n’Blue pizza, which is made from blue buffalo cheese, fior di latte, roasted pumpkin and provola di Agerola, plus a good sprinkling of hazelnuts.
4. Fuoco Vivo
📍De Clercqstraat 12, 1052 NC
Sourdough pizza is undeniably delicious, and at Fuoco Vivo you can enjoy some of the best slices in the country. The fermented yeast makes the pizzas extra special, with incredible texture and that lovely sourdough taste.
All of the pizza are baked in a wood-burning pizza oven, which makes them taste even better and you can follow with a range of desserts but the real standout is the pannacotta. Of course, this should then be followed by some homemade limoncello.
📍Eerste Constantijn Huygensstraat 60, 1054 BR
Fiko is definitely one of the fanciest pizza spots in Amsterdam. It’s a place to indulge and really treat yourself to a tipple and an outstanding, high-quality pizza.
There are no soggy slices, just crisp bases, fluffy crusts and rich sauces. Despite all of this, their pizzas aren’t actually very expensive. However, there is one very outlandish, luxury pizza costing €175!
It had better be made of gold, I hear you say. Well, it basically is. It’s topped with 23k white truffle flavoured gold nuggets and gold leaves, plus a host of other, very expensive ingredients. When I first read about this pizza I couldn’t believe my own eyes.
But hey, if you’ve got the dough (pardon the pun) and you wanna spend it on pizza then this is the place to visit! They do, however, also serve incredible fresh fish from Italy too, and the pizzas can be made with vegan or lactose-free cheese.
6. La Perla
📍Tweede Tuindwarsstraat 53, 1015 RZ
La Perla is a no-fuss pizza restaurant in Jordaan’s ‘Little Italy’. The bright, airy restaurant is the perfect place to grab a bite when the sun is shining, serving traditional Italian pizza, which you can watch cook in the oven.
You can take the pizzas to go, but they don’t take orders over the phone. Instead, you can just turn up, order and your pizza will be ready in no time. You’ll find all the classics, plus a few specials, all of which are worth trying. There’s also outdoor seating and if the weather permits, it’s always great to sit outside in Jordaan!
7. Il Sogno
📍Koningsstraat 19, 1011 ET & IJburglaan 905, 1087 EN
If you love Italian food, you’re going to adore Il Sogno. Not only is this place one of the best pizzerias in Amsterdam, but it’s also an Italian deli. So, if you taste something you like or just fancy a bit of nduja, you can pick it up on your way out.
There are two locations in Amsterdam and both are fantastic. You can order a huge range of delicious pizzas, including a vegan pizza and it’s definitely worth stopping by for one of their paninis too! For dessert, there are plenty of choices but for me, the cannoli’s gunna win every time.
8. Yam Yam
📍Frederik Hendrikstraat 88-90, 1052 HZ
Yam Yam is another no-fuss pizza spot. It’s bright and airy but has a cosy feel once the sun sets. There you’ll find all the classics, including a couple of tasty vegan pizzas.
It gets very busy, especially on weekends. So, make sure to book if you want to sample Yam Yam’s slices. However, it’s a great place to hang out with friends and well worth making a reservation.
📍Admiraal de Ruijterweg 79, 1057 JZ
This super cute pizza spot has one of those atmospheres that just keeps you coming back for more. Obviously, the pizza is fantastic or we wouldn’t have mentioned Volare but the cocktail menu is also unbelievable.
There’s even homemade limoncello and mombaruzzo so it’s not just the food that’s great – this place is the whole package. The signature pizza is a rather spicy affair, with roasted yellow paprika cream, Nduja Calabrese si Spilinga, stracciatella and caramelized red onion. You’ve gotta love a bit of Nduja!
10. Lou Lou Pizza Bar
📍Weesperzijde 42A, 1091 EE

Their tartufo bianco has a particularly rich, truffle sauce. Equally rich, however, is the tomato sauce used for pizzas like the margherita and Napolitano. Whichever you choose, you’re going to enjoy every bite. Plus, Lou Lou Pizza Bar offers gluten-free dough that tastes just as good as the other.
