Vietnamese food is one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide, given the array of herbs, fruits, and vegetables used in local dishes. The local food is certainly delicious and nutritious, but we all need a break from the usual. Fast food is usually the way to go when you’re willing to treat yourself and nobody disagrees over pizza. It is the universal comfort food, so occasional indulgence in your cheesy and greasy fantasy is not a criminal offense. Not to mention, pizzas can be healthy too – it’s all about using fresh and organic ingredients. Saigon offers a wide range of pizza points to satisfy your Italian cravings. Check out the following locations to experience the best of Vietnam’s pizza scene:
