I feel that finding good pizza in Ubud is actually really easy. Maybe, a little bit too easy.
Ubud has a lot of pizza joints, it’s like being in a little Italy. Each restaurant has their own specialty, and signature taste.
Do you want a doughy and chewy crust? Got it!
Napolitana style pizza? Easy.
Vegetarian options? They do it!
Or, pizza with unique topping like Ayam Betutu? Ubud has it! You will never run out of options for your pizza night.
And, when it comes to the ‘which-place-has-the-best-pizza‘ argument? Wow, let me tell you, it’s going to be a long discussion. Everybody has their own contender to throw in the ring.
So, in order to make your pizza quest a little bit easier, here is my guide to pizza in Ubud.
Serving up authentic Italian food in the jungle, L’Osteria is the number one hotspot for pizza in Ubud, and one of the best restaurants in town.
Their vast menu is packed with traditional tastes, including your regular pizza toppings, pasta dishes and sides – all prepared with fresh ingredients on order.
This is a great pizza place in Ubud for a chilled dinner with your friends.
The breezy restaurant and central location makes it easy for meeting up and enjoying some fabulous pizza together.
Be sure to try out the Ai Formaggi pizza – cheese lovers will swoon!
#2 La Baracca
Controversial opinion – I think La Baracca has some of the best pizza across the island.
The perfectly crusty, slightly burnt crusts, fresh tomato sauce, melted stringy cheese and flavourful toppings make my mouth drool just typing about it..
When I get to choose the spot for pizza night, I will always be heading for their prosciutto pie.
The relaxed environment, large menu (with vegetarian options) and tasty cocktails makes it a fun hangout where you can enjoy quality time with your loved ones.
Check out their spaghetti and meatballs when you have the chance – heavenly!
#3 Umah Pizza
Check this spot out!
First, the pizza is unbelievable. They have a super thin and crispy crust, are generous with the toppings and the portions are huge – bonus!
Secondly, the price is amazing! It’s really cheap by Ubud standard. At about 100k-ish for two people – including one pasta dish, one large pizza, and two drinks – its the deal of the century.
Lastly, they offer an incredible delivery service. I was staying with a friend in a villa in the middle of nowhere, and wanted to try our luck by ordering from Umah Pizza, thinking that the delivery would be out of scope. We were so surprised – and ecstatic – when our pizza arrived in just 45 minutes!
My favourite dish is, once again, the Margherita pizza. I do like to include extra toppings depending on my mood.
I also recommend their homemade pasta. My favourite is the Pesto pasta, but they’re all incredible.
If you’re Indonesian it gets better, they have 10% local discount!
The only downside? Parking here can be a bit fussy.
#4 Mamma Mia Pizza
This is one of the only places where I will order a vegetarian pizza.
Crust-wise, it’s different from the other restaurants. A bit thicker, but it has just the right amount of chewiness. The crust to topping ratio is perfect. Not too much, not too little. The ideal balance.
Their vegetarian pizza includes eggplant, onion, paprika, and a lot of other fresh tasty vegetables.
Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to try any of their pasta dishes yet, but they are widely raved about around Ubud.
I suggest preparing an additional half hour to be seated at dinner time – unless you book ahead.
You could also try out the other Mamma Mia location which is a bit smaller and quieter on Hanoman Street.
For those who like cold pizza leftovers for breakfast the next day, I can tell you that these hit the spot. And the price-point is just right!
Most people come to Ubud for a spiritual escape with healthy food, but who can resist a bit of pizza?
With vegetarian and vegan options, it doesn’t need to totally ruin you diet.
Everyone loves a slice, and those visiting Ubud shouldn’t miss out!
