Not only is Pionieri Pizzeria the only authentic Neapolitan pizzeria in Joburg, but it’s a pop-up too! Talk about a novel drawcard, though it seems people are returning again and again for more of what is quickly gaining steam as the best pizza in the land. Find it at the Melville Night Market at 27Boxes every Wednesday and The Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein every Saturday and on First Thursdays … for now at least. We recommend the calzone Robert De Niro, mainly because it just sounds cool, but then again you can’t go wrong with salami. Details: www.pionieripizzeria.com
