Who doesn’t love to indulge in slice or two of pizzas every once in a while? Whether it is as a light brunch or as a full lunch, pizzas are always a very preferred option for most of us. Pizzas might be a bit unhealthy due to all the fat and carbs that they contain, but we all know that is not a reason enough to not let ourselves feast upon them. These Italian luxury dishes are equal to love for some of us and yet, we can rarely find a pizza joint that matches our taste bud requirements. If you are on a lookout for new joints to check if any can satisfy your unique cravings of pizza tastes, you might want to visit the listed lesser known pizza joints across the town:
1. Pizzahood: A small firewood pizza joint which can be easily missed even when you are right across the road, this place serves superior quality pizzas baked slowly on wood fire that taste like some of the best you will have in Kathmandu. The crust is thin and toppings generously spread.
The place is so small and cozy that people rarely know about it, but once you visit it, you will be back for more for sure. They serve 15 varieties of veg and non-veg pizzas in 9-inch and 12-inch sizes on nanglos with a side of hookah and drinks, if you are interested.
