âPizzaâ refers to a dish in which ingredients such as sauce, cheese, seafood, and meat are placed on a wide flour dough and baked in a wood-fired oven or oven. Pizza is one of Italy's representative dishes, and I think it originated from bread eaten by putting onions and garlic on wheat dough during the Greek and Roman era. At the end of the 19th century, tomato sauce was added and today's recipe based on dough, tomato, and cheese was created. Since then, immigrants from southern Italy spread pizza culture to the United States and popularized pizza around the world.
Pizzas are broadly divided into Italian and American styles. Italian pizza is characterized by putting simple toppings and raw vegetables so that you can enjoy the natural flavors of the ingredients. On the other hand, American-style pizza uses a variety of meat-oriented toppings such as sausage and bacon to pursue a rich, rich flavor. Even in Japan, there are pizzerias where you can experience unique flavors that cannot be tasted anywhere else, from places that offer authentic Italian flavors, and are loved by many. Here are 5 of the best emerging pizza restaurants with a harmony of natural colors that pop in your mouth.

The underground âPipe Groundâ announces its location with a small signboard. Inspired by âground,â which refers to âthe outer surface of the earth without water,â the unique interior that makes use of the texture of concrete is impressive. The signature menu is âcorn pizza,â which enhances the taste buds with an appetizing visual with a cross section of whole corn placed on top of the dough and potato chips embedded in it. You can experience an addictive sweet and salty taste with the right combination of sweet corn flavor and spicy sauce. The large cross section of corn makes the grains pop up every time you chew, adding to the fun of chewing. In addition, âtriple cheese pizzaâ and âpepperoni pizzaâ are also available, and you can also order a half-and-a-half menu.
â²Location: B1F, 66, Hannam-daero 27-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 16:00 â 22:00 on weekdays, 11:30 â 22:00 on weekends
â²Price: Corn pizza 20,000 won, half-and-a-half pizza 20,000 won
â²Testimonial (like eating and eating): I didn't like waiting without hesitation, so I went 30 minutes before opening and waited in advance before going in! After eating, the atmosphere completely exploded…! I usually like corn, so I was looking forward to it, but it was much tastier than I expected, and I really enjoyed the savory flavor of corn because it contained a very generous amount of corn. When I saw another table, I ate a combination of pepperoni and corn, but I plan to try it again next time!
2. Cheongdam âTarobeâ captures the diverse flavors of the ingredients

This is the second place in âDarobe,â which is loved by many for its wood-fired pizza in Seongsu-dong. It is run by Chef Kang Woo-suk, a member of the opening of 'The Kitchen Salvatore Cuomo', where you can enjoy pizza close to the local flavors of Italy. The signature menu âDAROBE (BISMARK)â is the menu that won the 2018 Neapolitan Pizza Craftsman Korea Championship. Prosciutto cotto ham, buffala cheese, eggs, truffle oil, and basil are placed on a dough with a soft texture freshly baked in an oven. The combination of the rich, green flavor added by the soft-boiled egg yolk flowing down and the fresh aftertaste of fresh basil leaves is excellent.
â²Location: 757 Seolleung-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 22:00 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:30, closed on Sundays
â²Price: DAROBE (BISMARK) 25,000 won, AQUA MARE 39,000 won
â²Testimonial (I'm hungry for a sweet potato): I went there once in Seongsu, and Cheongdam was also very popular. I think the Cheongdam branch has a more luxurious atmosphere. I think the point of pizza is the slightly charred pizza dough baked in an oven! The pizza dough itself was delicious, so I ate it all with my friends without leaving a single piece. Hehe, I didn't feel the overall taste of Bismarck pizza, and it was nice that the ingredients themselves tasted great.

âBrett Pizzaâ is a place newly opened by Chef Seo Ki-won, who made his name known in Seochon's âPizza Application Zaha.â All pizzas are made by aging dough made from Italian caputo flour and wild yeast to make dough. When you order a menu, you'll be given a card with a detailed explanation of the recipe and ingredients to enhance your understanding and enjoyment of the meal. The signature menu is âepouas,â which is a type of soft cheese, and âepouas,â which is made by grilling green onions stewed in white wine together. Cheese, which is added in chunks and conveys its rich flavor, and green onions, which add a sweet and spicy flavor, make a great combination.
â²Location: 29-8, Wausan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 17:00 â 23:00 on weekdays; 12:00 â 22:00 on weekends; B/T (weekend) 15:00 â 18:00; closed on Mondays
â²Price: Epuas 22,000 won, Tartupata 24,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin IM Possible): I tried the pizza made with Epuas cheese for the first time, and the aroma was so strong that I definitely felt like eating cheese. There was something crunchy in the middle, so when I saw what it was, they added green onions. The ingredients seem to be very simple, but the flavor is amazing! The green onions are perfect for getting the point, and they go great with cheese. hehehe

It is the first restaurant in Korea of Italy's leading pizza brand âSpontini,â which was founded in 1953. To recreate local flavors, ingredients such as cheese, flour, and tomatoes are used from Italy. The characteristic of the pizza menu is that it uses thick focaccia to make the most of its chewy yet soft texture. The signature menu is âMargherita,â where you can enjoy the classic pizza with tomato sauce and savory cheese, and the âdouble cheese margherita,â which contains twice as much cheese, is also very popular. They also sell a variety of pizza slices, such as âprosciuttoâ topped with salty Italian ham, and âSpontini 1953,â which is topped with anchovies to add umami, so it's a great place to choose and enjoy.
â²Location: 2F, 442 Gangnam-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 22:00 every day
â²Price: Margherita 6,900 won, prosciutto & arugula 9,900 won
â²Testimonial (I'm hungry): The red building caught my eye, and I looked closely, and it was Spontini! I hear you can eat spongtini in Seoul! The piece itself is large, so it's perfect for simple meals. Margherita is delicious and there are a few likes and dislikes, but the 1953 menu where anchovies and cheese meet is a real delicacy. hehe
5. Cheongdam 'Clap Pizza', where the hotness of cheongyang pepper comes alive

âClap Pizzaâ has a bright orange tiled exterior and a large English sign that gives it a youthful feel. The pizza is presented in an American style, and you can choose between 14 inch and 11 inch pizzas. The signature menu is âCHEONGYANG PEPPER,â which adds Korean spiciness by adding sliced cheongyang pepper on top of a pizza topped with pepperoni and cheese. A self-developed hot honey sauce is sprinkled at the end to neutralize the spiciness and add a subtle sweetness, making it strangely addictive. The refreshing scent of chongyang pepper captures the unique oily flavor of pizza, so you can eat it all the way through without getting bitten. Note that packaged purchases are also available.
â²Location: 71, Apgujeong-ro 46-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 21:30 every day
â²Price: CHEONGYANG PEPPER 15,000 won, TRUFFLE GORGONZOLA 19,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigami Murainyao): It's full of hip sensibility, so I found out that it was a pizza shop that opened in a place run by Hojokban and Downtowner. I liked the spiciness so much that I ate the cheongyang pepper pizza. It was really hot and spicy, but it was a taste that kept on my hands. You can also order half a penny, but if you eat cheongyang pepper and truffle gorgonzola like this, they taste like honey.
