Phnom Penh is great for many things, pizza is not necessarily one of them. The Pizza Company are the most popular franchise with locals, but, well they are really quite awful. There are a few decent restaurants that serve OK pizza, particularly one which we have deemed the best “Roman Pizza”, but few knock your socks off places.

Who makes the best pizza?

But this brings us on to the question which countries make the best pizza! I was briefly employed writing about the street food of Roma and of course I have been there. Rome invented the pizza, so obviously lay claim to being the best. One might well argue though that Brooklyn and New York have fine-tuned this dish to another level.

The Phnom Penh Pizza scene

As previously stated not all that great, although Pizza Hut are going to be the latest franchise to enter the country, ironically quite near Brooklyn Pizza on Street 123. Weirdly whilst Pizza Hut is considered more fast-food in the west, in the east it is thought of as fine-dining. Many a time I have been treated to Pizza Hut in China, accompanied by wine served in a water glass, often with ice.

Phnom Penh though is very western centric, so getting a decent enough pizza is easy to do, its getting a great one that is hard.

The best pizza in Phnom Penh is at Brooklyn Pizza and Bistro, or simply Brooklyn Restaurant and this is for a number of reasons. Value wise it beats the crap out of places like the Pizza company, with big old meat pizza setting you back just 12 bucks.

The quality also shines through in the next day eating challenge. We all love next day pizza and Brooklyn Pizza reheats well the next day, which again gives it some extra kudos from us.
