To make your life easier, Student Digz has put together a list of the four best pizzerias in Braamfontein, from the cheapest to the larniest, so that you always have access to this delightful treat when you’re craving it most.
Every South African knows Debonairs pizza. If you’re looking for something indulgent (who can forget about those mouth-watering crammed crusts, and those double and triple decker pizzas!) and cheap, this where to find it. Check out their menu here.
Address: Corner of Jorisson Street and Biccard Street, Braamfontein, Inner City, Johannesburg
If you want to overdose on cheese, Pizza Perfect is where it’s at. What’s also really cool is that they give you a choice between classic tomato base sauce and spicy chill base sauce. The chill sauce promises a kick that you won’t be quick to forget. Check out their pizza perfect menu.
Address: High Point Centre, Kotze Street, Hillbrow, near Johannesburg, Braamfontein, Inner City
While slightly more expensive than Debonairs and Pizza Perfect, Mimmos is known for its classic Italian pizza selection, and crispier crusts. They also have a wide selection of gourmet options (pretty kiff for a first date) that are still quite affordable. Follow the link to view their massive menu.
Address: Corner Smit Street and Biccard Street, Braamfontein, Inner City, Johannesburg
This classy pizzeria should be reserved for those special occasions – it’s pretty darn pricey! However, it stands out due to its mouth-watering menu and its infamous craft beers and cocktails. Even if you save up for a few weeks, it is definitely a treat that you want to experience at least once before graduation. Here’s the menu, but be warned – it’s tempting:
