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 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.
