Best Pizza
 
Would like to find out views on where to find the best Pizza in Zug, Lucerne or Zurich (we live in Zug but willing to drive to Zurich or Lucerne if it's worth it).

My favorite around Zug.
But my tastebuds are American.

Re: Best Pizza
 
Define us a good pizza ?

All of the local auberge / bars around me do pizza, they range from 15chf to 30chf for same thing a pepperoni pizza.. although some places name it differently .. They are all ok perfectly ok to me but i wouldn't buy the 30chf one again because it was no better that the cheapos.

In my nearest resto it's 15chf.. Bigger than the others, more toppings and they give me some mayonnaise to dip my crust in.. And anything we don't finish comes home with us in a box..

That's the best pizza or me

Pizza Hut in the US used to provide a creamy, Mayo-type sauce with some herbage in it for the purposes of dipping crusts.

To each their own, I guess.

So, cheese inside the crust. And mayo on top.

Governments shouldn't opress the world with social credit system. But health credit.

My two favourites in Zug are Bacco (Arth) and Zunfthaus Kreuz (Oberwil)


I think Baccos, to my taste, is a bit better, but both great!

Who said anything about the crust? I guess that I shouldn't mention that I eat pizza with a knife and fork?

Is there any other way to eat it? :D

As for best pizza in Ch - can't say I found something extraordinary here.

I used to ignore the crust until a couple of years ago .. It's too dry and hard.. One day i i tried dipping it in some garlic mayo .. Total game changer..

Now salad cream I haven't tried but that's maybe one for this weekend.

Pizza for me is a balance .. Too wet and and it's horrible mush. Too dry and every bite needs some mayo.

I mean we're not taking about covering the pizza in mayo, just a little dip.

Edit .. Pix Garantee, 2 pizza for 1.55 chi .. Great. Add your own topping if desired . What's not to love about a .80c pizza..

Yeah I agree, pizza in Swiss German area is ok but absolutely nothing to write home about...all the places I've tried are much of a muchness, often scrimping on the toppings too to save a few rappen. Head south!

Re: Best Pizza
 
Here the best pizza is in a small but popular kebab joint. Maybe OP can check out some Turkish kebab places in their area? Maybe I am a cheapo but it is really tasty, conveniently fast and costs reasonably.

The idea to travel for a pizza seems a bit strange to me. Suggest you contact your friendly Kurdish takeaway and they will *gasp* deliver to your doorstep. Admit that some of their interpretations can be a bit exotic but on your second try you can usually discuss your preferred ingredients. Turks/Kurds certainly know how to bake flatbread which is more than can be said of many other nationalities.

Best places around here are owned/run by Turks (30+ years) or Serbs (20+ years).

Really.

Says the something something champion who’s okay with adapting NZ-style lamb knuckles on a pizza but abhors folk who like “toast Hawaii” once in a while… :confused:
Personally, I’d refrain from mayonnaise (the crust or whatever) dipping myself but wouldn’t advocate outright shooting these offenders either :D

on the other hand, why not? probably the same people looking for "English style" piadini :msnsarcastic:

I made the terrible faux-pas of asking for freshly ground black pepper for my pizza when I went to La Bestia and was swiftly rapped over the knuckles by my companion who's both Italian and a chef. Black pepper is only acceptable on pizza when integral to the recipe, apparently.

Fortunately, I wasn't excommunicated from the restaurant as I had abstained from pineapple.

Anyway, the pizzas at La Bestia were to die for.

When I make my own pizza at home I always grind black pepper on it (as it's integral to my recipe) and I often have pineapple on it as well. While this is not integral to the recipe, sometimes it's simply called for. My kitchen, my rules. I always make sure I'm out of range of any Italians or chefs, or worse, Italian chefs.

I'm tempted to go there and ask for the Aromat shaker :msncool:

In general the further south you go in Europe the better the pizza gets until you hit Naples, but Zurich has good pizza compared to Germany and France. Notable shout out to Kytaly in Geneva too. Lugano Pizza is generally of a high standard, but I can‘t say it stands out compared to Italian.
Tom

OP in Zurich, I go to the following places with Italians and or Ticenese
Luigia (Neopolitan style and my favourite)
Il Golosone (super thin based and probably my number 2)
Don Leone (consistently good and also excellent ham and cheese boards that get better the more you know them).

In Zurich I like Cucina on Josefstrasse

I’m not sure which I like best . The pizza or the waitresses . :)

You may want to try the Santa Lucia in the Niederdorf then. I absolutely loved their Calzone, but that's ages ago, no idea about today.

If you like Santa Lucia, there are a number of them throughout the area - near the art Museum in Zurich, Oerlikon, Winterthur, Schaffhausen. Probably other places. They‘re not all exactly the same, either.
