The Secret Garden (or The Garden) is an Italian Pizza restaurant located inside Riverplate Park, Wuse 2, and it’s rumored to have the best pizza in Abuja. Though you’ll find almost every kind of pizza on their extensive menu, we suggest the Suya Pizza to start with. While you munch on their pizza, you can also enjoy the live music and karaoke nights that they hold every week. All in all, it’s a great way to enjoy a chill atmosphere with a good mix of locals and expats.

Since entering Nigeria in 2012, Domino’s Pizza has become a household name. Though they’re an American company, they’ve wisely adapted their menu to reflect local tastes in Nigeria. So our recommendation would be to start with the Suya & Chicken pizza and take it from there. Sadly, there is only one branch right now in Wuse 2, Abuja.

Located in Gwarinpa, The Pizza Place is a relatively new spot which opened in late 2014 and has quickly established itself with its wide range of options and toppings. The Pizza Place also moonlights as a karaoke lounge depending on the weekend – So if you don’t want to hear any off-key singing while you eat your pizza, you have been warned!

Located in Wuse 2, AJ’s Pizza is one of the few places in Abuja where you can get Halal Pizza. Whilst AJ’s is well known for their amazing pizza, the Shawarma collection is equally tasty.

Da Maria is more of an Italian spot than a pizza restaurant – hope that paints the right picture. So the pizza selection is very traditional, as originally intended by the Italians. Nevertheless, it’s a great, cozy spot to have a romantic dinner for two in Wuse 2.
Red Fire is a multi-cuisine fine dining concept put together by Raymond Botha and his team, which includes Italian and Pizza in the mix. Asokoro doesn’t have a lot of pizza places so that makes Red Fire even more unique. Overall, the food is amazing and very affordable.

Gwarinpa-based Shirleys Confectionery is a bakery / pastries place. So we like to call it “the candy store”. Shirleys makes amazing bread and by extension great pizza. There is also a Shirleys Express Branch in Asokoro.
