First on our list of the best 15 pizza restaurants in Perth, is Pappagallo.
If you’re looking for a taste of Italy, Pappagallo is the place to go. They import all of their ingredients from Italy – they are that serious about achieving authentic flavours.
So from the flour that comes to the Sanz Maranzo tomatoes, you’ll get a pop of Italy in every bite. Even the parma ham has been imported and tastes authentically delicious. Pappagallo is the pizzeria for you if you’re looking for the real Italian deal.
Location: 46 Grantham St, Wembley, WA 6014 Ph: (08) 9287 2949
Next on our list of the best pizzerias in Perth, is Monsterella.
This is a family-owned restaurant and is a big hit with the locals. In fact, you’re definitely going to want to book in advance. Monsterella is always busy, so to guarantee yourself a table, you should give them a call.
It’s probably due to the fact that the dough is naturally risen for 48-hours, creating the most delicious pizza base. Chewy, light, and thin – they serve dynamite pizzas.
Location: 18 Lyric Ln, Maylands, WA 6051
For traditional wood-fired pizzas, our next suggestion is Rossonero.
Now, this pizza joint used to be a former garage. While you can no longer get your oil changed here, you can certainly get one of the best pizzas in Perth.
They serve mouthwatering wood-fired pizzas, that have been baked to perfection. The result is a light and thin pizza that you thought could only exist in your dreams.
If you’re dining with vegans, they will feel right at home. They serve vegan pizzas, with vegan cheese, so no one is left out.

Location: Unit 3/104-108 Erindale Rd, Balcatta, WA 6021 Ph: (08) 6219 6009
Bytes is not a Pizza restaurant as such, more a quick-serve pizza bar.
We’ve put Bytes on this list because of their interesting twist on the traditional pizza – the pizza pocket – and this is the pizza bar’s signature offering.
The pockets are made with the same dough as the pizza bases, baked to perfection then filled with a variety of mouth-watering fillings that are all sliced, diced, chopped, marinated and cooked fresh in store everyday.
The pizza bases are consistently light and airy, with the dough fermented under strict temperature controls before being hand stretched and baked. The gluten-free option is handmade in store and is excellent.
Editor’s Note: We been have informed that Bytes are currently closed. We will let you know when we know more. As this is the case, why not check out the following pizza joint instead?
Location: Shop 5, 135a Coode St, South Perth, WA 6151 Ph: (08) 9367 6007
With a 4.7 Google Reviews rating and many claiming that Solo Pizza makes the best pizzas in Perth, you won’t want to miss this spot.
Thin and crusty are the go here with the dough made daily and only the freshest ingredients used for the toppings.
Solo Pizza offers both dine in and take away and turns out a range of both classics and more unusual flavour combinations. Personally, we find it hard to resist a fully loaded Quattro Formaggi – tomato sauce, mozzarella, brie, feta and parmiggiano. That said, the Pancetta – tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh mushrooms, Italian mild pancetta and gorgonzola – might persuade us to try something different!
Location: 1/446 Beaufort St, Highgate, WA 6003

If you’re looking for pizza with ocean views then you must consider, Canteen.
Canteen is a pizza joint, with a big difference. That big difference? It’s a beachfront restaurant, with stunning views. Of course, you could be traditional and have some fish and chips at the beach, or – you could try something new, exciting, and straight-up delicious.
Canteen serves Neapolitan-style pizza, and they have an excellent wine list. If you’re going to enjoy a bottle of wine, it should be while gazing out at the ocean, and enjoying a gentle sea breeze.
Canteen’s slogan of “Pizza, wine and a real good time”, is apt. They serve authentic Italian pizzas that delight, a must-try is the fior di latte. With beautiful views of the seaside and amazing pizza, they won’t let you down.

So, if you find it hard to make decisions, Santini might have just made it easier for you. They only offer four options: two rosso and two bianche. That’s because the pizzas are crafted to perfection, and the recipes are developed to an impeccable level.
