Bráz Pizzaria Best Pizza in Brazil São Paulo Brazil

After a long day of meetings, Gagit and San Diego were too tired to go to D.O.M., but Braz Pizza is one of the best in Brazil and supposedly a great way to unwind. We get to Braz and as expected there was a half hour wait in this huge restaurant. This wasn't so bad, considering how popular the place is.

Once seated, we ordered a house special Chopp, and a Brahma Black, which is a real beer that tastes more like Root Beer than Guinness, yet has a smooth and light flavor. We were hungry and found a starter that will keep us going until we are seated. We chose Linquica on Skewers with Onion, shown above and perfectly cooked in the wood oven.

We were finally seated and our server Enzo, gets me another Chopp and San Diego a Caipirinha, as we study the huge Pizza menu and really want to try them all. We make our ultimate choice, which was a medium pizza, 6 slices of two different combinations. Half Caprese, fresh Mozzarella, Tomatoes, a special Black Olive Spread with Basil & half Portuguesa, Ham, Egg, and Onion. We also had Olives, all over a Tomato and Cheese base shown in full splendor above. Enzo serves each of us with a smile and covers the Pizza until we ask for another piece. He also brings over as shown , hot Olive Oil, red Peppers, and hot spicy fresh Peppers. This is a serious Pizza restaurant. We devour this Pizza, enjoying every bite and leave the restaurant, passing by the Pizza staff and ovens with a obrigado (thanks).

Let the Truth be Told, I have read that Brazil consistently wins world contests for best Pizza, and after eating at Braz I now know why. The pizza itself was as tasty, crunchy, chewy as could be desired. Never have I had such fresh ingredients as toppings, they were like gourmet treats. After tasting all the overhyped and underwhelming Pizza in Miami without exception, I pledge to not eat pizza again until I go back to Brazil or maybe Italy:)

Braz Pizza gets 7 out of 8 slices!

    Without wishing to be rude, this guy really doesn’t know his pizzas. There is only one Brazilian pizzaria which is up to Italian standard and that is Capricciosa in Rio. Speranza in Bixiga is OK and has the seal of approval of Neapolitan pizzarias. Everything else is second rate, for a very simple reason, they don’t use Italian ingredients and Brazilian tomatoes are awful.
    Braz is just about passable, but at $35 for a large pizza, it should be a hell of a lot better. The only superlative about Brazilian pizza is its incredible price. A good pizzaria in most Italian towns will beat anything Brazil has to offer with the possible exception of Capricciosa – indeed if you want an authentic Brazilian pizza, take a piece of cardboard, cut it into a circle, empty your trash on top of it, cover with tomato puree and thick slices of any cheese except authentic mozzarella di bufala and then throw it into a pizza oven until it burns… oh and don’t forget the 35-year old aluminum tray.

    Sorry, should have added…Bixiga is the old Italian district of Sao Paulo.

    Ahhhh yet another discovery in the best pizza in the world. I am originally from Sao Paulo and I now reside in the States. I miss the delicious taste of that pizza EVERY SINGLE DAY lol, no exaggeration. I can’t even fully enjoy any other kind of pizza because each time I have a slice I am actually thinking about what the Sao Paulo pizza tastes like, almost like a steamy affair.
