When your restaurant is called Pizza Proper, there has to be no doubt that your pizza is the real deal. Luckily, Pizza Proper does what it says on the door, serving up some of the best pizzas in Cape Town. Chewy and puffy in all the right places, plus topped with a simple tomato sauce, these pizzas are wood-fired and made using a naturally fermented dough.

The menu setup is pretty straightforward, as there are only four pizzas – a marinara, a Napoletana, a margherita and a bianca, with the option to add a selection of extras such as anchovies, roasted mushrooms or cured meats from Richard Bosman.

The limited choice might offend more adventurous pizza fans, but the base and classic sauce speak for themselves – you won’t need a variety of toppings. However, if you feel the need to add something, the red-wine salami and mushrooms work particularly well on the bianca, and anchovies on the Napoletana always hits a home run.

The drinks list here is small, with a choice of two red and two whites making up the bulk of the wine offering. Expect easy-drinking wines like Terra del Capo and AA Badenhorst, all well-priced too. Local beers and soft drinks are also available.

The service is relaxed and warm, with most orders being placed at the bar.

The owner is often the first face you see as you enter, which just cements the wholesome, family feel of the place.
