There’s nothing like a good food tour when you’re out on a trip. That’s true whether you’re visiting Medellin or Madrid! 

And, if you’re a pizza lover, you’ll want to know which places to visit. Well, while this city offers several irresistible pizza restaurants, there are a couple that takes the cake.

Now, while it’s been a few years since the Pizza Master competition (a showdown of restaurants battling for the coveted title of Pizza Master, meaning they make the best pizza), that’s not to say you can’t still get a great slice of pizza. 

Here are the best restaurants to find some finger-licking pizza in the capital of Antioquia.

The first pizza spot in Medellin on our list is Amazza.

With a variety of Italian dishes, this site stands out thanks to the quality of the food. Each pizza is made with fresh ingredients and can be accompanied by some good cocktails.

With three locations in the city, this restaurant is perfect for gin and tonic and pizza lovers, offering the best flavors of each.

The secret touch of the pizza is that the dough is handcrafted by the restaurant. And, it’s produced from a sourdough made of black beer.

Café Zorba is more than just a simple pizzeria. It’s also a stage and cafe that where live artists can perform. 

Another perk of this place is that it has dishes for those who prefer vegetable protein to beef and bacon. If you’re a veggie-eater, check out this spot!

The pizzas can be chosen with a red or white base, and can be enjoyed with beers, house drinks, cocktails, several kinds of coffee, and even a gelato!

This place offers pan-baked pizzas! If you’re familiar with Dominos’ pan pizza, you can get excited about Ragazzi’s, which takes things to a whole new level.

With three different sizes to share with friends, as a couple, or on your own, it really doesn’t matter how big or small your group is.

Plus, you know the pizzas here are great considering the fact that Ragazzi has won the pizza master for two years in a row.

Takout is an Italian and Tex-Mex restaurant. With an Avante Garde and lively atmosphere, it has participated in (and won) the 2018 and 2019 Pizza Master competitions.

In both tournaments, they made a pretty unique Tex-Mex twist on your classic pizza.

You can still find these past pizzas on the menu, so if you’re hankering after a crowd-pleaser, they’ve got you covered. 

You can enjoy any meal with some Texan cocktails, which is something typical of this restaurant.

Recommended: 

  • Philadelphia Sweet Pork Pizza: 150 gr of pork in artisanal dough that’s neither thick nor thin, neapolitan sauce, buffalo mozzarella cheese, caramelized bacon, Philadelphia cream cheese, and the final touch of their house jam.

Burro

A space dedicated to art and pizza, Burro Pizzeria highlights its pizza with the beautiful photographs adorning its walls.

The strategy works, too, since your mouth will be watering the second you walk in the door.

Burro’s pizzas are stone-baked, which is their secret to a great bake! You can choose from two sizes and two flavors.

Despite the simple options, however, the pizza is delicious. It’s the perfect guilty-pleasure food for when you just want to kick your feet up for the night.
