- Il Campionissimo, 26 rue Léopold-Bellan, 75002
This pizzeria was imagined by the vice-champion of the World’s Pizza Championships of 2009 : Arlette Cadot. Her winning pizza is still on the menu and is as enormous as it is succulent.
The pizza dough there is maybe the best I’ve tasted so far in France. And the only trouble you will have is to make a choice as the list of pizzas seems to never end.
As for the prices, the “classic” pizzas are at a pretty reasonable price for the standing of the place, and the more elaborate ones are a bit expensive, but it is so worth it !
Il Campionissimo is opened everyday from 12am to 2:30pm and from 7 to 11pm, on Saturdays from 12am to 3pm, from 7pm to midnight. You will need to book.
You have to book a table beforehand. You can also order to go.
2. East Mamma, 133 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, 75011
East Mamma is a huge place that not only serve delicious pizzas, but also many other Italian specialities. The menu changes every month, but it is always amazing !
But what interest us here is the pizzas. They are in a Napolitan style : a thin and crusty pizza dough with a generous garnish. The ingredients are fresh and tasty, of course. It is a “must go” in Paris !
Open everyday from 12:15pm to 2:45 pm and from 7:30pm to 11pm. No booking.
Pizzas : 9-15€
2,5. Ober Mamma, 107 boulevard Richard Lenoir, 75011
Ober Mamma is the sister “pizze ristorante” of East Mamma. Because of the success of East Mamma, they decided to open another one not so far from the first one. If it is kind of similar to its mother East, it still has its own style, taste and chefs. You will be torn between the two of them, but the pleasure will be equal ! The pizza are also in the Napolitan style, cooked in an “old” pizza oven.

Pizzas : 9–15€
3. Il Brigante, 14 rue du Ruisseau 75018
Enter in a very small restaurant and be welcomed by an awesome Italian staff. The room is indeed really small and you share a table with strangers, which is for me what it the best feature of this place.
Wait, not really … I mean, the pizzas are amazing. The cook is making them at the entrance, which a great sight. They will also know what to advise you for the wine and it is a taste of heaven.
Open every day except on Sundays from noon to 2:30pm and from 7:30pm to 11:30pm. You can also order to take away.
Pizzas : 9–18 €

In the Allegra restaurant, the pizza dough is prepared with an organic Italian floor and is then used to make 8 to 9 pizzas (one is always a vegan one) that change with the seasons.
