Looking for the best pizza in the world? Well, set your sights closer to home because it looks like one of the best pizzas is right here in the Philippines.

In Big 7 Travel’s latest best of the best list, Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza in Metro Manila bagged the 34th spot on the list of 50 Best Pizzas in the World. With big contenders from Italy and New York City, making it on the list is impressive enough, especially when you’re up against a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Gino’s, named after the son of owners Jutes and Cello Templo, is the only Philippine establishment to land on the list, and to add icing to the metaphorical cake, it’s also been ranked the second best in all of Asia.

The travel authority describes a visit to Gino’s as follows: “Their pizzas are cooked in a traditional Italian-style with dough that has been baked in house and proves for at least a day. They then cook the pizza within a couple of minutes at 400C which results in a perfect crust. The toppings are what really bring their pizzas alive. Never a dull meal in here.”

Singapore’s Pizza Fabbrica, with its copper wood-fired oven, was ranked the best in all of Asia, while Pizza Studio Tamaki’s “Tokyo Neapolitan” pizzas in Japan came in third in Asia.

But where is the best pizza in the entire world? Italy of course. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele in Naples took home the top spot for giving customers what Big 7 calls a “religious experience.”
