Superb pizza place in Chiang Mai. Wood fired hand made pizza neapolitan style. One of the best pizza places in Chiang Mai

Loved the vibe here, the people here were lovely. The menu is simple and restaurant focuses on great pizza and toppings.

All else being equal, pizza cooked in a wood-fired brick oven is superior to pizza cooked any other way. By Hand Pizza Cafe uses Lam Yai wood to fire their traditional Italian domed brick oven. The pizza is amazing, with a crispy crust surrounding the...very soft, airy bread. Located in the northeast corner of the Old City directly across from the entrance to Wat Lam Chang, By Hand is not the most accessible restaurant, but it is worth the trip if you are in Chiang Mai. The dining area is open air, so don't expect to enjoy refreshing cold air from a AC unit during the hotter months. However, you'll usually find there is still a wait to be seated at peak times, regardless of the weather. Even when they are packed, their service was very good. They do have a limited wine selection and other drinks. Probably more importantly, they have a very broad selection of toppings and cheeses including sundried tomatoes. These are fresh, so some toppings do run out at times. When my family was visiting in January, the pizza was so good we went two days in a row, and it isn't like there aren't other great restaurants in Chiang Mai.More

After a day in the Country having an early lunch at a favourite restaurant ( without booze) on the way back into CM, we all decided we were starving so decided to pick up our favourite pizzas for supper. The 3 cheese pizza was demolished...asap, a veg pizza went the same way so the only pic that we managed to take was my (at -the- moment -fav-) Lamb pizza . Service is great, pizzas cooked within 10-15 mins in the wood-fire burner, easy to park (at the moment). They officially opened for seated customers (no booze served whilst eating there), so get a take-away , get your own booze & enjoy your friends at a distance!! Good fun actually, as nobody can nick a slice !More

Very good pizzas with an array of toppings to choose from. We had the Meat Lovers & Fiery One (spicey), loved the crust, an acceptable wine served by the glass or the bottle! Friendly service & good music playing in the background. Chairs in the...front not so comfy but can't have everything! Recommended.More

Had a beautiful margarita pizza for less than 200 Baht. Wood fire oven was right behind where we were sitting and the atmosphere was beautiful. Would highly recommend 🍕

You must head to By Hand Pizza Cafe for the best vegan pizza in Chiang Mai. We went to this cozy hipster pizza cafe for a late lunch. The cafe serves a delicious selection of artfully crafted, authentic wood-fire pizzas. Presently, there are 4 vegan...pizza options. We ordered the Vegan Umami Dream Pizza and fell in love with each and every bite of it. The Vegan Umami Dream Pizza consists of a mix of Italian mushrooms, both tomato and pesto sauce, dash of truffle oil, shitake mushrooms, and eggplant.More

I am Italian. I was really surprised by the quality of this pizza. It's absolutely the best pizza eaten so far outside Italy. Recommended!
