Pizza Plaza Café & Pasta

Pizza Plaza in Buenos Aires, Argentina

The best pizza I ate in Buenos Aires was at Pizza Plaza!!  This cute pizza place is located on the north side of Las Heras Parque on the corner of Bulnes and Las Heras.  They offer a variety of things such as; sandwiches, empanadas, quiche, milanesa, chicken, and pasta.  The best thing on their menu is the PIZZA.  There area about 20 different types of pizzas on the menu and if you aren’t satisfied, just ask for your favorite toppings.

The first time I tried pizza from the Pizza Plaza was when I just finished my 24 hour flight (trip of hell) from the United States, so I thought the deliciousness was just my hunger lying to my taste buds, but I’ve had this pizza about ten different times and every time I say it is the best!  My favorite type of pizza at Pizza Plaza Café & Pasta is the Napolitana.  It comes with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh green olives, oregano, and lots of garlic.  You will smell like garlic for two days, but it is totally worth it!

Ham (Jamon) Pizza at Pizza Plaza in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Ham Pizza

The pizza is cooked in the traditional brick oven, and every pizza is made to order.  I don’t know if this is true, but another customer told me that the pizza dough is made fresh daily!  Even if it comes from a can I wouldn’t mind; it is crispy on the bottom and top, but soft in the center.  It is the kind of crust that you love to eat.  I would actually be happy eating just the crust off of this pizza for an entire day!

The green olives, called aceitunas, taste as though they were just picked from the trees in Italy.  I understand they grow them here in Argentina, but as Italy is famous for them I picture them being magically delivered each morning.  I usually hate olives that contain the pits, but these are so delicious that I wouldn’t risk spoiling the taste by pitting them before serving them.

Another great thing about the Pizza Plaza Cafe is that they don't skimp out on the toppings.  Unlike Dominos or other well-known chain restaurants, the toppings here make the pizza, they don't just compliment it.  Pictured above is a standard Pizza con Jamon or Ham Pizza.  I couldn't believe it the first time we ordered one.  We expected to get a pizza with small pieces of ham, not a pizza completely covered with three layers of freshly sliced ham!

The Pizza Plaza delivers, but they have satellite TV, so grab a Quilmes and watch a soccer game with the locals!  A large pizza is enough to feed two people and cost between $13 and $20 pesos.
