This is the classic choice, and indeed the best-selling pizza at Pizzabar Komugi. The best way to judge a pizza place is to order a Margherita because this simple pizza is so simple that it takes skill to make it taste really good. On this front, Pizzabar Komugi makes a decent effort.
Basil mascarpone pizza
/ ￥500 (+tax)
This pizza is the clear favorite for the female clientele of this pizza bar. Mascarpone cheese is used for making tiramisu, but here you have it on pizza with basil sauce, and the sweet cheese just explodes with flavor when tasted together with the basil of the pizza. A new favorite for sure.
Today’s al ajillo

At Pizzabar Komugi they have a menu on the table on a small blackboard with dishes that change daily. The day we went to Komugi we got this nice al ajillo-style dish with whitebait, and the taste was just as luxurious as the dish looks. The chef of the place is really skilled so be sure to try some of their daily specialties.
