50 Top Pizza Asia - Pacific 2024

Updated: Jun 29

At the prestigious 50 TOP PIZZA ASIA-PACIFIC 2024 ceremony, held on March 4th at the Italian Cultural Institute, Tokyo's "Pizza Bar on 38th" emerged victorious once again, clinching the title of the best pizzeria in the Asia-Pacific region for 2024. This accolade comes as a follow-up to its recognition at the same event last year.

Led by Executive Chef Daniele Carsano of Mandarin Oriental Tokyo, "Pizza Bar on 38th" holds the distinction of being the world's smallest pizzeria, boasting only eight seats. Despite its diminutive size, the establishment has cemented its reputation as a culinary powerhouse, securing the top spot for the second consecutive year.

In the closely watched rankings, "Crosta Pizzeria" in Makati, Philippines, under the supervision of Yuichi Ito, claimed the second position. Notably, Mr. Ito also received the esteemed "Pizza Maker of the Year 2024 - Ferrarelle Award." Following closely behind was "RistoPizza" in Tokyo, a newly opened venture by Giuseppe Elichele.

The Asia-Pacific region, comprising 17 countries, saw Japan leading the pack with 13 establishments making it to the coveted list. Australia followed suit with 10 entries, while Thailand secured 5 spots. Additionally, Azerbaijan and Vietnam made their debut with one pizzeria each. Tokyo, known as a mecca for exceptional pizza, demonstrated its dominance with 9 pizzerias featured in the guide.

Reflecting on the event, the curators - Barbara Gera, Luciano Pignataro, and Alberto Sapere - expressed their gratitude for the warm reception in Tokyo. They extended their appreciation to Ambassador Gianluigi Benedetti, Professor Silvana De Maio, and the staff of the Italian Cultural Institute for their support. Minister Francesco Lollobrigida's presence underscored the significance of the occasion, emphasizing the importance of pizza in Italy's agricultural industry.

Looking ahead, the top 13 establishments from the "50 TOP PIZZA ASIA - PACIFIC 2024" ranking are gearing up to participate in the "100 Best Pizzerias in the World" event, scheduled for September 10th in Naples. Additionally, in light of the inaugural selection of the best pizzeria from Latin America, the next 50 Top Pizza event will be broadcast live from Rio de Janeiro on April 17th, promising an exciting showcase of global culinary excellence.
