Pizzas in Chamonix
20 via d’Aoste, 74400 Chamonix
As the name suggests, this restaurant is a true Pizza Paradise, where you can eat in or take away. Paradisio definitely has one of the most varied menus for pizzas in Chamonix, with classics like the Margherita and also more original flavours like Chicken Curry and the Tahitian pizza which is topped with coconut and pineapple! All their pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven for an authentic taste.
The menu has something to satisfy everyone’s taste, and also everyone’s hunger, with three different sizes of pizza including the one-person bambino and the géant which is perfect for sharing.
390 rue Joseph Vallot, 74400 Chamonix
In Chamonix town centre, la Roulotte offers a warm welcome to clients from its gypsy-style caravan. There’s a good choice of pizza toppings but also ready-made salads, all made on-site with fresh ingredients – making a stop at La Roulotte unmissable. Bear in mind that eating “in” is only available on their terrace which can be a bit chilly in winter, so you may prefer to take away in the colder months.
