Where Can I Find a Good Pizza with Lots of Tomato Sauce?

Postby Homerbre » Tue Apr 18, 2017 1:22 pm

I have tried pizza at several localities in Lima, including the chains (Pizza Hut, Papa Johns), and they all seem to have forgotten that tomato sauce is key ingredient of a good (American) pizza. I was appalled when even in Pizza Hut, the tomato sauce appeared to have been applied with one swipe of a paint brush. I do not understand this. I just spent five years living in Australia, and their approach to making pizzas was essentially the same. Please help!

Papa John's was pretty crappy in the US, but I find that it is actually a halfway decent option here in Lima, especially since you can get one for 22 soles including Pepperoni rolls (I always use the Lima Delivery app). You're right that it could use more tomato sauce, but I think they use about the same amount as the Papa John's in the US. As far as I can remember they taste the same, though admittedly I only very rarely ate it in the US (why would I, right?).

Finding a good American style pizza in Lima is difficult. What part of Lima do you live in? There are some okay ones I've come across here and there. Nothing great, though.

Hey there... you could try Spizza (San Isidro) and just ask them to add some extra tomato sauce. Same trick would probably work at any pizza place that has decent waiters, and not just someone taking your order at a counter.

Best pizza comes from your own stove :mrgreen: It is really easy to make. However all pizza even home made is not healthy.

Pizzeria Zarella

Jiron Cuczo 471
Magdalena Del Mar

It's like a monument. It has been there for ages and is always busy any day of the week.
They are open till late.

Prices are democratic.

In the winter, I advice to wear a big coat or drink a few 7Raices before you enter because the doors and windows are always open.

The azafatas are young and very good looking.

My wife doesn't like pizzas so I pop in alone while she's at the nailbar.

I love to nip down there by myself.
Pizza, beer and eye candy are a great combo.
