Wanted to have good pizza after we're done with this usual red n green curries. Had pop by Secret Learning to try out their Italian pizza but was surprised to find a note on their shop stating that they will be away. Had a hard time finding it though. So, the next nearest pizza place that we had shortlisted was this 'by hand' pizza which is situated in front of a temple. Main thing is to come here only if you just wanted pizza as they only have pizza on the menu. They do cater for vegetarians, and vegans. The most basic magherita is really really dead seriously good. The crust is sooo good that it puffs up in the brick oven (it's named Chiangmai oven on the oven itself). You can see this oven from the roadside. It's fabulously beautiful and awesome. I can say it's good, simple and fresh. Only downside is that when we ask for parmesan cheese (which is usually foc), we have to pay 5 baht for it. All in all, service was quick and best part of it, it's better and cheaper than Pizza Hut. The basic pizza is only around 160 thb up to about 290 thb. 4 pizzas and drinks for 6 came up to about 1200 thb which was very reasonable for the quality and taste. Do not miss this at all!!

I had the vegan pizza and added pineapple and it was, without a doubt, the most delicious pizza I've had in my life! The crust was so fresh and had the perfect amount of crunch, and the ingredients all taste extremely fresh. Just be prepared to wait a little while for the meal because they use a big wood-fired stone oven, but it's definitely worth the wait trust me! In terms of other places in CM, is was slightly more expensive, but still good value!

This place is only open for dinner, and has a great selection of vegetarian and vegan pizzas too. The 'vegan umami dream' was our favourite. Just delicious. It's a little pricey, at about 200-250baht per pizza, but we thought it was definitely worth it at least once or twice during our stay (..we eat a lot)

Just perfect, Napoli pizza in Chiang Mai. If you're tired of the same (excellent) Thai food and want an authentic Italian wood burning oven pizza, look no further. Not expensive either 2 pizzas, 1L of water and a drink 550 baht.
Great place, a must in Chiang Mai
