After reviewing the best Burger and Pancake places in Utrecht, it is time for the all-time classic – the Pizza.
The possibility of creating almost uncountable variations of toppings makes it a dish for everyone. I think there are very few people who doesn’t like it. Speaking for myself, I especially like the fancy and unusual toppings. It is clear that from time to time I also enjoy a simple salami of ham Pizza. But isn’t there anything better than a delicious prosciutto with parmesan and rocket or a nice truffle Salami with mascarpone?
So of course, it is inevitable for me to review the best Pizza places in Utrecht. Following I will show you my two favourite Pizza restaurants in the City!
- Da Portare Via
The well-known and loved Pizza chain Da Portare Via is also located in Utrecht. With its two restaurants in the centre it is very good located and always close when you walk around in the city. My review is based on my experience at the restaurant situated in the Voorstaat 58. The restaurant itself is not very big. The first impression could make you think that it is rather a little bistro than a restaurant. Personally, I like the concept of a small, simple appearance very much. The focus here lies definitely on the food. But that’s what is most important anyway, right?
The amount of different Pizzas on the menu is very good. It ranges from simple ones like the Margherita or Salame to very unique toppings. A speciality of this place is also the Pizzetta Mezzaluna – the little half-moon Pizza. I did not try that one, but from the looks, it seems very interesting.
My favourite Pizza at Da Portare Via is the Tartufi con coppa di Parma. The different ingredients fit perfectly together, giving the Pizza a unique taste. The crust is not too thick and very well backed. It is very crunchy and tasteful. The amount of tomato sauce and cheese is very well balanced.
Also the staff is very friendly and fast. The prices are reasonable and the choice of drinks is also very good. I didn’t have a dessert there yet, but I believe that the sweets are also very tasty.
All in all, I can definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a really good and reasonable priced Pizza.

My favourite Pizza place in Utrecht is the Bastacosi. There are two different restaurants in Utrecht. I always eat at the restaurant in the Biltstraat 33. As well as the Da Portare Via, the restaurant is not very big. Still, there are enough seats so that you will get a table without waiting too long. I really like the location. It is very stylish and cosy. You can order you Pizza at the table and get your drinks out of the fridges yourself.
The amount of different Pizzas at Bastacosi is also very good. The types of toppings are very similar to the ones from Da Portare Via. Still they have their own delicious variations. As a special, you have the possibility of creating your own Pizza. You can choose your favourite ingredients. The La Tua Pizza is then priced by the amount of toppings you choose. This option makes the restaurant perfect for everyone.
My favourite Pizza at the Bastacosi is the Tartufo con Prosciutto di Parma. As you can imagine, I really like the combination of Parma and truffles J. But that does not mean that the other Pizzas aren’t just as good. The combination of the ingredients is superb. My second favourite Pizza here is the Salsiccia Piccante. I can definitely recommend both of these toppings. They are all perfectly backed, very tasty and crunchy. For me, the thickness of the crust is perfect. The amount of tomato sauce and cheese is very good. You also have the possibility of getting different types of olive oil for your Pizza. This adds a unique taste to the already good Pizza.
The staff is very friendly. The food is prepared fast and comes out of the (open) kitchen warm and delicious. The prices are reasonable, the amount of different vines is long. The desserts are good, too.
I can definitely recommend Bastacosi. For me it is the best Pizza in Utrecht. Prices are good and the location is very nice.
