Ammazza: A Popular Chain of Pizzerias in Medellín with Excellent Pizza

Ammazza Pizzeria & Gin Garden is a popular chain of three pizzerias in Medellín with excellent brick-oven cooked thin-crust pizzas as well as some good Italian food.

Ammazza is popular. And it is currently rated the #2 pizzeria in Medellín on TripAdvisor.

Several friends have been recommending Ammazza recently to me. So, I finally went to try it out with a friend. And I am happy I did as Ammazza has some really excellent thin-crust pizzas.

Note the above photo is the Diavola pizza at Ammazza with Spanish chorizo, smoked bacon, pork ham, roasted peppers and a mix of organic vegetables.

More About Ammazza

“Ammazza” is the name of the pizzeria chain that was chosen due to it translating to ¨amazing¨. And this is reportedly the goal, mission and vision of these three restaurants.

In addition, Ammazza is a pioneer in Colombia in the world of gin & tonics that are popular in Europe but pretty unknown in Colombia. So, the pizza chain has created a gin bar prepared with a range of botanicals.

This gin bar at this pizzeria chain is great. They offer a variety of gin, tonics and flavoring. And you can pick your own.

  12. Burro Pizzeria – a popular pizzeria in Envigado with good thin-crust pizzas.
  13. Cavieli Ristorante Caffe – a popular pizzeria in Belén near Clínica las Américas.

All 13 pizzerias listed above in my opinion have better pizza than the pizza chains in Medellín like Domino’s, Jeno’s, Papa John’s, Pizza Doble Pizza, Pizza Hut, Pizzas Piccolo.

Also, we included Ammazza in our list of the best pizza places in Medellín.

In addition, in my opinion, Papa John’s has the best pizza out of the big pizza delivery chains in Colombia. But all of the above independent pizzerias we have looked at in detail have better pizzas than Papa John’s and the other big pizza chains in Colombia.
