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).

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.

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

Mayo for pizza
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.

Re: Best Pizza

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

Re: Best Pizza

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?

La Bestia in Lucerne is very good.

If there is a plate, you're safe.

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..
The "oven baked" is missing.

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…
Personally, I’d refrain from mayonnaise (the crust or whatever) dipping myself but wouldn’t advocate outright shooting these offenders either

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