8 Hotspots in Rotterdam for amazing pizza
1. Angelo Betti
Most locals in Rotterdam are familiar with Angelo Betti. For generations and generations this is the place for the best pizza in Rotterdam. And we certainly agree! On the menu you can choose from over 30 pizzas, all of which are topped with fresh ingredients. Yum!
In addition to a pizzeria, Angelo Betti is also a gelateria. So you can also visit them for the tastiest Italian ice cream.

2. Old Scuola
Old Scuola sits on a nice spot in the Industrial Building in the center of Rotterdam. As a real pizza lover, you’re at the right place here! At Old Scuola they prepare the Fior di latte mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella and burrata according to their own recipe. The fresh ingredients come from Dutch water buffalo and cows.
At Old Scuola they also serve beer, wine and all kinds of house-made drinks: Jasmin iced tea, ginger lemonade… Delicious!

3. De Pizzabakkers
With a name like De Pizzabakkers (meaning ‘the pizza bakers’) you can expect tasty pizzas! Fortunately, they certainly do serve good pizzas. The complex dough preparation process ensures that the thin bottom is deliciously crispy. After the pizzas are topped with exclusively fresh ingredients, they are baked in Italian wood ovens. In addition to the pizzas, De Pizzabakkers is known for their prosecco’s; they serve different cocktails with prosecco.

Another place for delicious, fresh pizzas is O’Pazzo on the Mariniersweg. In their traditional wood oven they prepare pizzas with fresh, sustainable Italian ingredients. The pizzas of O’Pazzo are known for the original Napolitan recipe.
At O’pazzo you can also order other Italian dishes, such as pasta, salad, Italian risotto and a number of fish and meat dishes. At O’Pazzo there is really something for everyone!

You can find Sugo on various locations in the Netherlands: in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Utrecht and of course in Rotterdam! At Sugo they serve pizza al taglio, which is a pizza variant that is baked on large rectangular plates and cut into long pieces. Pizza al taglio means ‘pizza that has been cut’. It’s not an easy product to make, because the bottom of the pizza has to be perfect. That is why the pizza bakers at Sugo give a lot of attention and have a big passion for their profession.

At Gusto they try to work with as many organic products as possible, and prepare their pizzas with fresh ingredients. The menu changes regularly at Gusto, because their dishes depend on the current season. On the menu you will also find various vegetarian options, and they have gluten-free bread and pasta.
But we definitely would go for their tasty pizzas. For example, order the pizza of the month, the delicious Quattro Formaggi or the Gamberetti e Granchio.
