These days in Seoul, there are many new and improved pizza places in that are trying to be more authentic rather than the regular chains like Pizza Hut, Mr. Pizza and Papa John's. I love pizza and have tried many places ranging from from Pizza D'Buzza , NYC Brick Oven Pizzeria, The Booth all the way down to Pizza School (more blog posts on each of those places coming soon). However, everyone will have their opinion about where the best pizza place is. I don't think you can generalise there only being one best because there are so many different types out there. ie. Chicago deep dish, NYC style, Italian thick crust, thin crispy crust, thin chewy crust....heck, even every region in Italy does their pizza differently!
For now, I would like to highlight "Al Matto" in HBC as my current new favourite pizza place for a "thin chewy crust Italian style pizza in Korea". The prices are very reasonable, it's a chill atmosphere, and the pizzas were great! I definitely want to come back to try other things on their menu!
