8 Artisanal Pizza Places To Check Out In Klang Valley (2021 Edition)

There's something about pizza that makes them a go-to comfort food. Freshly-baked dough, crispy crust, assorted toppings and cheese all over... what's not to like about them? That being said, here's our 2021 edition of 8 Artisanal Pizza Places To Check Out in Klang Valley.

Artisanal Pizza Places in Klang Valley

1) Stretch Eatery @ SS14, Subang Jaya

Nothing fancy, just great pizza made with love and passion -- all wood-fired to smoky goodness. Those who prefer the classic marinara sauce can look forward to some of the familiar favourites, namely Margherita (marinara sauce, mozzarella, sweet basil & olive oil) and Minced Beef (marinara sauce, minced beef, onions, garlic, sweet basil & olive oil). Not a fan of tomato-based pizza or simply allergic to it? Not to worry, though, since you can opt for their Bianca pizza topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. To complete your meal, don't forget to top up with a side order of G__bread (Garlic bread) or H__erbed fries (Herbed fries). For the latter, they do not use typical frozen fries but rather freshly-cut Russet potatoes to fry them and later tossed with savoury ingredients such as oregano and basil. You can also choose to place your order right here.

Address: 23A, Jalan SS 14/2, SS 14, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor.

2) Phil's Pizza @ Bangsar

Fancy some New York-style pizzas? Then, you might want to consider grabbing a bite at Phil's Pizza in Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar. You have the choice of ordering them per slice or per pie, with the latter referring to 12" and 18" pizzas. True to its New York style, expect a thin crust that is both larger and wider than your average pizza. It's foldable (actually the right way to enjoy such a pizza) and packed with various toppings. Speaking of toppings, they have classics like Margherita and Beef Pepperoni. If you prefer something spicy, do try their Hot Wings or go for the sweet-and-savoury Pineapple Sugus topped with chopped pineapple and smoked duck. Best paired with one of their refreshingly homemade sodas -- available in three different flavours including Sour Lime, Passionfruit and Rootbeer. Visit their shop or place your order right here.

4) Heritage Pizza @ Jalan Doraisamy, KL

At Heritage Pizza, they use a stone oven (in this case, Verona) to fire up the pizza at a high temperature to give it a nice charred edge as well as the right chewiness. They do not take shortcuts when come to making their pizzas, beginning with the dough that has been fermented for 48 hours. Expect quality toppings too regardless of the tomato, cheese or others like olives and cured ham. Their bestsellers? Try the tomato-based Diavola layered with fior di latte, salame piccante (spicy Italian cured meat) and charred chillies. Or go for the oozy goodness of cheese-based Cinque Formaggi packed with the likes of pecorino romano, ricotta and gorgonzola. Hungry already? Well, place your order right here.

6) Meat & Eat @ Aman Suria, PJ

Meat & Eat not only serves pizza but also other comfort foods including burgers and pasta. But let's talk about the former, with their signature Chicago Deep Dish Pizza coming highly recommended. In case you are wondering why is it called "deep dish pizza", that's because the crust has a higher edge all around compared to the regular varieties. Topping-wise, it comes loaded with ground beef, mushrooms, onions and a layer of tomato sauce. Other popular choices include the classic Margherita, Aloha (white-based pizza topped with pineapple, chicken, mushroom & mozzarella) and Carne (beef-based pizza served with jalapenos).
