Thin, blistered, decadent, and cool – that’s the way of the yeast-free pizza at Crazy Pizza. And if you still haven’t checked out its new space in the Diplomatic Quarter’s Oud Square, you’ll love the mix of local Arabian architecture and modern, rich brick-coloured exterior.

Crazy Pizza, Diplomatic Quarter, Oud Square, Al Safarat, Riyadh 12511, daily noon to midnight. Tel: 9200 07275. @crazypizza.saudi

If you’re after Authentic Napoletana in Riyadh, this is the place you want to go. While the name could throw you off a little (finizone roughly translates to ‘sham’, ‘or ‘pretence’), we just assume that it means it’s criminal how good these slices are.
