The list was shared by 50 Top Pizza, an Italy-based media organisation that releases rankings of the best pizzerias all over the world. They released region-specific guides for Europe, Italy, the USA and across the world. The ceremony for the 50 Top Pizzas in Asia-Pacific was held in Tokyo on May 30th where two Indian representatives did the country proud. The first one was Da Susy - a pizzeria based in Gurugram's Sector 50 area which featured on the 44th spot in the list. They also have an outlet in Crosspoint Mall in Gurugram itself. Susanna Di Cosimo is the chef-owner of this eatery serving Neapolitan-style pizzas made with fresh raw materials. "I'm greatly thankful to my team which works hard and passionately at my side, day after day," read her post on Instagram. Her work was recognised with three rewards - the best Pizzeria in India, the 44th Best Pizzeria in Asia and the 'One To Watch'.
Meanwhile, in 47th place was Leo's Pizzeria which has outlets in Vasant Vihar, Amar Colony and will soon open doors in Ghitorni too. Founded by Amol Kumar, the pizza chain has quickly made its place in the hearts of pizza lovers across the city. "Securing the 47th place in the 50 Top Pizzerias in Asia Pacific 2023 list is an incredible honour for Leo's Neapolitan Pizza," Kumar said in a statement. "We are extremely proud of our team's hard work, dedication, and commitment to delivering exceptional Neapolitan Pizzas that delight our customers. This achievement is a testament to our relentless pursuit of culinary excellence and our unwavering passion for creating memorable dining experiences," he added.
