Looking for a good pizza in Seoul? Well the world of Pizza in Korea has many surprises in store. Contrary to its western opponents, pizza has no limits in Korea. It ranges from simple-yet-gourmet slices to toppings you could never imagine would be on a Pizza.
It is quite an issue online as many expats don’t understand the korean taste which always creates quite a hassle online. But hey never say never? some might surprise you.
Personally, when i am craving pizza i have my go to places. After living in Seoul for a few years, i can recommend you some pizzerias that serve the all favorite authentic American style Pizza.
1. Monster Pizza
The OG pizza for party people. Located in Hongdae, it is popular around for when it’s late and you want pizza to go with your drink. They sell it by slices or if you feeling feisty you can buy the whole pizza.
They only have three pizzas on the menu: the Spice Girl, the pepperoni and the cheese. Don’t be fooled by the huge size (46cm/18in)—they care just as much about quality as quantity. Shipped straight from the States, their signature tomato sauce will make it impossible for you to stop once you take that first bite. The limited space and cheap prices push clubbers out onto the streets for their very own pizza party.
However, this pizza place has a lot more to offer. With it’s other locations, many other pizzas are available. I personally recommend the Fresh veggie one. Yes finally a vegetarian pizza! It is thin, cheesy and has pepper, tomatoes, olives, onions and mushrooms.
Other pizzas on the menu like Bacon cheddar, spicy chicken, Or mix it up with the quatro pizza. They come in two sizes L(12inch) or XL (18inch).
2. Pizza Express
Similar to Monsta Pizza, this place has american style pizza that you can get by slices.
This pizza place is located in Sinsa-dong and is decorated all in Supreme.
They have the classic cheese pizza, mushroom, pepperoni, Rucola or Hawaiian pizza. They also have a side menu with fries.
3. Ginos pizza
The New York style pizza. Ginos Pizza can be found in different places around Seoul like Itaewon, Hannam and Apgujeong. On the menu the real NY pies, starting with the classic cheese pizza to Brooklyn’s best, a signature pizza. They also have a rich side with fries, buffalo wings and salads.
I also love how they change their menu and add up new pizzas. Their new lunch menu includes a Fig&Pig pizza, brunchies which regroups your brunch’s favorite ingredients like garlic butter, hashbrown, eggs and bacon, Lil pepp and Maui Wowee. Can’t wait to try the new variants.
It is a great place to sit down with friends and have an authentic tasting pizza. Ginos Pizza is also notorious for appearing in many TV shows and having celebrities visit often.
4. Pizza School
A pizza that reminds me of my school days. Not your usual New York pizzeria but the taste will surprise you. Their menu is quite creative, but i stick to my favorites: The cheese pizza and the vegetables quesadilla.
The quesadilla one was a great discovery, it has vegetables and that nacho cheese that i can’t get enough of.(You can also ask for more of it)
For my meat lovers, this pizza is also available with chicken or beef. If you are feeling adventurous you can try their sweet potato pizza. You can also add cheese crust on your pizza.
The prices are very affordable and tasty.
