Pizza. That one word makes all our mouths water. It’s a divine dish. Though the dish was made in Italy, it became popular after the Italians migrated to the States. Americans did have cheese on their bread but it’s nothing like they’ve ever seen before. The crusty pizza dough with the melted mozzarella cheese and creamy marinara sauce. We looked through many reviews and recommendations before we picked the Top 5 Places To Get The Best Pizza In Malaysia.
1. Mikey’s Original New York Pizza

The next on the list is not a restaurant but rather a chain. Not every district has a specialised pizza shop near me. There are also circumstances where not every person can afford luxury pizzas from other countries. We acknowledge that and that’s why we decided to include a chain restaurant in this post. Chain restaurants may not be as ‘fancy’ as many people would put it but it gets the job done.
When you’re sleeping in and lazy to go out they save you. So that’s why for the pizza in Malaysia we decided to dedicate this sector to Dominos pizza. Dominos pizza is a pizza chain founded in the US but has made it to all over the world and our country. It’s an understatement to say that Dominos is not a pizza restaurant. It has allowed millions of people who couldn’t afford a slice of gourmet pizza, a chance to try what a regular pizza tastes like.

5. Pezzo Pizza
To us West Malaysians, we know them but Pezzo isn’t a big deal here but in East Malaysia, Pezzo has made a name for itself. It has over 43 locations in East Malaysia alone which could put Domino’s pizza a run for its money. Pezzo also has been keeping up its sales by offering single slices for their customers to buy. No other pizza chain in Malaysia has offered its customers a single slice of pizza for them to purchase. By doing so, they allow even people from the lower-income bracket to try a pizza when they can afford it. Pezzo is known for its symmetrical pizza cutting in the advertisements which look satisfying.
Finally is Pezzo Pizza. Pezzo although not as big as dominos sells their pizzas at strategic locations such as KL Sentral and Setapak just to name a few. They sell around 10 -15 pizzas and each one is doing its own justice. They sell bbq bonanza, big daddy, cheesy cheese, hola Hawaiian, pepperoni party and around 8 more pizzas. Not to brag but Pezzo Pizza localises their menu, they even have a chicken rendang pizza for the locals as well as a singa laksa pizza. This allows Pezzo to have a loyal fan base whilst maintaining a new one.
