Where to Eat Pizza in Amman

Pizza is one of those foods that you can find no matter where you go in the world, but it’s not always done right. During my travels, I’ve had some pretty horrible “pizza”, with Armenia and Georgia’s mayonnaise covered pizzas taking the cake for the worst rendition of pizza in the world. Luckily, in Amman, you can find some pretty good pizza. Here are some of the top pizzerias in the Kingdom, their must-try specialties and if they have a vegan option (meaning the dough does not contain dairy or eggs – as of yet, no pizzerias have vegan cheese on the menu).
