In 2022 and 2023, Pizza Massilia was included in 50 Top Pizza’s list of top pizzerias in the world. If an Italian restaurant in Bangkok can rank higher than pizzerias in Italy, you know they make authentic Italian pizza.

It also explains why it was able to grow into the behemoth given that it was only a pizza truck in 2015. It also helps that this place ferments its pizza dough for seventy-two hours and cooks it in a woodfire oven, adding to the authenticity.

Interestingly, Pizza Massilia still has its pizza truck, which you can find in the area of Sukhumvit. What’s more, they even launched Pizza Tuktuk by Massilia, which, as the name suggests, will serve their signature artisan pizza from a tuk-tuk.
