PIZZA STRADA: Delectable Neapolitan-style pizza in the heart of Tokyo

Thankfully, there is no shortage of pizza in Tokyo. Whenever you feel like indulging in this Italian-born flatbread, you have a lot of options. Everything depends on your budget and mood. PIZZA STRADA is not your typical pizzeria and the pricing is higher than usual, but it is worth it once in a while! This September they celebrated their 4th anniversary.

We usually don’t limit ourselves to pizza only and end up ordering a side dish.

PIZZA STRADAWhen I’m on a budget, I either buy frozen foren pizza and microwave it (hello, soggy crust!), buy a piece at, say, Costco (too far) or at a supermarket (hard to find), make my own (in a microwave oven? Are you kidding?) or order pizza delivery (cold pizza is not yummy). But Strada is a pizzeria for special occasions! Watching the staff of PIZZA STRADA creating their tasty masterpieces is a part of the celebration.


PIZZA STRADA makes Napolitan-style pizza. It means that it is made with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. For an additional sum they will use buffalo mozzarella on your Margherita pizza (officially called mozzarella di bufala Campana) instead of the regular one. As for me, I don’t taste any difference between them.

PIZZA STRADAThere are also some regulations about Napolitan pizza dough, which make it as yummy, fragrant and tender as it usually is at PIZZA STRADA.


Napolitan pizza is baked for 1 or 1.5 minutes an a stone oven.


When we still had a dog, we sometimes took him with us. Sitting outside is very pleasant when it is still warm, but even in the middle of winter some people eat pizza outside (of course they have outdoor heaters).
