If there is one thing that we can all agree on– is that pizza is love. But when you are in Dhanmondi, and want the perfect slice, where do you go? Here are our top 5 favorite places so you can quickly fulfill your pizza cravings. Spend less time in deciding who has the perfect cheese to dough ratio and more time eating. So in no particular order:
Pizza Roma is synonymous with high-quality pizza with fusion toppings and thin crust. Meet both your cravings for Bangla flavor and pizza by ordering the Chilli-lime-grilled pizza (BDT 700 for a small and BDT 1200 for a large) or the Achar chicken. Taste-wise, the pizzas are consistently good; however we have had cases of receiving cold pizza, when it was delivered during busy nights.

Domino’s Pizza Bangladesh
It may feel like Domino’s has been open for more than a decade, but that was the locally ‘inspired’ version. The international franchise, Domino’s Pizza, opened up shop earlier this year. Go here when you are craving pizza with a thick, American crust. For some, the pizzas have the additional appeal of trying out brands that they grew up seeing only in the movies. Pizzas here come in smaller sizes, so Dominos can be good for a quick, solo lunch. The larger ones maybe a little too heavy and oily, far from the lighter, thin-crust versions that many crave.
The regular-sized Margherita is relatively cheap, at BDT 149. The classic pepperoni is BDT 269. Loaded pizzas like Meatzza and Extravaganza feast (with bbq chicken, chicken sausage, spicy chicken and pepperoni as toppings) are available at BDT 349 for the regular, BDT 649 for the medium and BDT 1099 for the large.

Bella Italia is a Dhaka classic. It is the place for the nostalgic, for those who like consistency and for family gatherings. Many Dhaka dwellers associate comfort food and pizza to their Pizza Funghi e Sausage. True to its name, the menu also covers Italian Classics like pizza with anchovies, olives, or eggplant. For some, the toppings are too out there or do not feel like good value for money. Try for yourself.

Cheez is another place that serves hot and cheesy pizzas at generous sizes and fusion flavors. Cheez pizza’s have fun names like Simpler Moddhe Gorgeous pizza, fun flavors like Kala Bhuna. Some love the taste of the different kinds of cheeses that they use, some are not a fan.

Dough on the Go
In Dhanmondi? Yes, the latest place on the block is Dough on the Go. They have set up in One Big Plate, the food court. Dough on the Go specializes in pizzas with thin crusts and fresh toppings. The opening of this outlet extends the delivery zone to Dhanmondi, Mohammadpur, Lalmatia and surrounding areas. Their menu is limited compared to the other places on this list and pizzas come only in one size (12 inch).
However, each pizza has a unique flavor–be it the Meatgasm with three types of beef sausage or the pizza with chicken and mushrooms in white sauce (Fungkhy Chicken). Our favorite is the Pesto pizza, because we can taste the freshness of the pesto that is made in-house. Some find the dough too soft and the toppings too heavy, so it can be a messy experience. We keep going back because the texture of the dough of the crust sets them apart from many other pizzerias in the city.
