Hong Kong’s Top Pizzas, According to 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific 2023
July 17, 2023
Three esteemed pizzerias in Hong Kong earned the right to call themselves the best in the city at the 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific 2023 awards held in late May 2023 at Tokyo’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel, “the undisputed capital of quality pizza” in Asia.
Fiata, led by Salvatore Fiata, brought Hong Kong to its highest ever ranking of the 5th best pizza pie in Asia. Followed by BACI Trattoria & Bar in Lan Kwai Fong ranking at 17th place, and Little Napoli in Happy Valley at 21st place.
As well as scoring a fifth-place finish on the 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific 2023, Salvatore Fiata won the Ferrarelle Award for Pizza Maker of the Year 2023.
“The pizza sector in the Asia-Pacific area is undergoing a maturation process,” underscore the curators of the awards Barbara Guerra, Luciano Pignataro and Albert Sapere, “and it is for this reason that we strove to organise the presentation in Tokyo. It is one of the greatest pizza capitals in the world.”
“We are happy to have presented such a varied and well-balanced final classification. The pizza is good, actually, it is excellent in the Asia-Pacific area, and this is an amazing fact that we are happy to reconfirm year after year.”
The top 15 pizzerias in the 2023 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific ranking enter by right into the 100 Best Pizzerias in the World, which will be hosted at the Palazzo Reale hotel in Naples, Italy on Sep. 13.
Japan has led the pack in the 50 Top Pizza Asia-Pacific 2023 rankings with 14 pizzerias, followed by Australia with 10 and Thailand with 5. India, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Israel all made the list for the first time this year.
