Diets and over-indulgence guilt aside, there are very few things that compare to a really good pizza. There is something infinitely comforting about the process; from the moment you put in your order for pizza delivery in Cape Town, to finally opening up the box to get the first delicious wafts that make you know that you may well eat the whole thing yourself.
Whether you are looking forward to a relaxed night with friends, on your own or even with someone special, Cape Town has a number of excellent delivery options that will even get your pizza delivered to your guest house, villa or hotel at little to no cost at all.
If the thought already has your mouth watering in anticipation, here are some of our suggestions for getting the very best pizza in the Mother City, ordered straight to your doorstep.
Pizza in Cape Town – Delivered to Your Doorstep
Some love thin bases, others prefer a thicker crust. Some keep things simple, and others go full out with all as many toppings as possible. However you prefer your pizza, be sure to try these delivery places for hot, fast pizza that is too good to resist.
- Butlers Pizza – with many years of experience in supplying Cape Town with good pizza and good prices, Butlers is something of an institution. The menu is fairly simple, with seasonal specials and much-loved favourites. Prices are very good too, averaging around R70 for a large size, and delivery is free. Orders typically take between 30 to 45 minutes, but may be longer on weekends. Other items such as cold drinks and ice cream can also be ordered.
- Col’ Cacchio – Italian style pizzas with a wide variety of yummy toppings make this a favourite with locals across the city. The bases are thin and wood-fired, with a standard size that is filling enough to be shared (if you really, really want to share of course). Deliveries and take-outs are offered at various branches, while Mr Delivery food service also does deliveries for this pizza hot spot and many other restaurants in each area.
- Eat Out the Box – a relatively new player in the pizza delivery scene, these guys do a number of pizzas ranging from regular to gourmet. Prices are pretty good, with free delivery to areas within the southern suburbs and City Centre. Service is quick, with deliveries taking under an hour. They also do other meals such as burgers and salads for those able to withstand the temptation of decadent cheesy slices of goodness.
- Da Vinci’s Pizza – originally started as Da Vinci’s Harfield in a quaint suburb within the southern suburbs, Da Vinci’s also opened a branch on trendy Kloof Street. Orders can be collected from the restaurant, with free delivery to nearby areas in the City Bowl and Claremont areas respectively. Prices are decent, and toppings are varied to suit just about every taste. Even the health-conscious can choose options loaded with green stuff or gluten-free bases.
- Masimmo’s Pizza Club – while this pizza spot does not do deliveries, they do offer takeaways. And once you have tried their drool-worthy offerings, you will want to make the trip to Hout Bay to collect your pizza – a drive that is entirely worth the effort. Massimo’s is a treasured favourite of Cape Town locals, with many believing that they are the best of the best. Are they right? We will have to let you see (or taste) for yourself to answer that one.
As a bonus suggestion, Mr Delivery is also a good option to consider for pizza deliveries. Online and telephonic orders can be placed (cash and credit cards accepted), and although they charge a small delivery fee, you will have access to a wide range of menus from restaurants in each part of the city. You can also order wine or other drinks from Monday to Saturday – always handy when the pizza urge hits!
UPDATE: Massimo’s Pizza Club will soon be delivering pizza and other yumminess through @
homeherotweet, which means more time to relax as you wait to fill your tummy!
