The biggest

Tucked away at the Berthold Centre, the Oversize pizza club captured the hearts of locals and tourists alike with their monstrous, nearly two-kilo-heavy pizzas that are just as filling as they are exciting. Carbonara, BBQ, or even tom yum, the pizzeria serves up a range of gourmet toppings that you can conveniently have all on one pizza for a ridiculously imaginative combo. The rumors have it that if you eat this behemoth of a pizza on your own within 20 minutes or less, you won’t have to pay for it. As they say, you won’t know until you try. 

Where: Grazhdanskaya St. 13-15

The craziest

While the world’s having an endless debate over pineapple on pizza, the Krang Pizza crew are making pizzas with mini-burgers, Cheetos, or marshmallows – and feeling good about it. Aside from controversial pizza toppings, the club has its heart in all things 90s: old-school video games and legendary arcade machines, neon lights and graffiti, and, of course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (hence NY-style pizzas and mutagen).

The most vegetarian

The Stay Gold (formerly Daner Pizza Spot) restaurant may seem small and quirky, but they are unbeatable when it comes to vegan pizzas. The pizzeria serves eight Neapolitan pizzas gone plant-based that can boast a world of flavors, from eggplant and mushrooms all the way to cherries, plus a range of other meat-free meals at an affordable price. Whether you're a vegan or not, Stay Gold is a top-notch pizzeria to stop by for a bite.

The most Italian

With its authentic cuisine, 22 cm brings a slice of Italy right to the heart of St. Petersburg. The restaurant is best known for its classical small-sized pizzas made Naples-style: a simple-yet-perfect dough with nothing but flour, yeast, salt, and water put into a traditional wood-fired oven – mmm yummy!
