Well, it depends on your definition. If best = authentic, then the best pizza in our twin island nation is definitely in Tobago. While Trinidad has several local and international pizza chains, authentic pizza is rarely found at a chain restaurant.
Both restaurants have real pizzaiolos making pizzas from scratch with high-quality ingredients and baking them in traditional wood-burning ovens.
Our other favourite spot for pizza in Tobago is SHORE THINGS CAFE & CRAFT (Lambeau, Tobago).
Shore Things isn’t a pizzeria but has a tasty mini-pizza on the menu with a housemade whole wheat crust and a marinara sauce dressed up a little with shredded carrots.
TRINICHOW TIP: Forgo the unique local toppings – ketchup, mustard and pepper sauce – and try La Cantina and Ciao Pizza’s toppings like prosciutto, feta cheese, capers, artichokes, fresh tomatoes, spinach or even caviar.
SPECIAL NOTE: We’ve heard good things about Trinidad’s newest restaurant serving pizza, CHOP CHOP GOURMET MARKET & BISTRO, but we haven’t had the pizza there yet. Let us know in the comments about your experiences there.
