Bomba is a hidden gem of a pizza place located at a cosy corner of Lyttelton. Situated at London Street, Bomba serves some of the most authentic pizzas, gelato and other Italian-inspired bites at a stall featuring an alfresco dining garden.
First launched in 2019, Bomba offers drooling Napoli-style pizza slices for a well-worth-it $5 at Lyttleton’s Farmers Market. Plus, they craft huge deliciously doughy, thick sliced pizzas to share with your mates, or even tuck into yourself.
Handmade whole pizzas can be purchased from $20. The dough is made using Italian flour to create an authentic and textured pizza base – taking around 30 hours to fully complete a 30cm pizza. Additionally, ingredients such as cheeses are Italian for a natural taste.
Highlights include the vegan Margherita, Pancetta with Italian bacon, Primavera topped with red onion and cherry tomato, or the thick Calzone, to name a few. Add tasty Italian potato dumplings called gnocchi to your order for some extra pleasure. Finish off your hearty meal with traditional gelato that tastes just like Italy.
Certainly, this 5-star reviewed café serves some of the best pizzas in Christchurch so be sure to check it out for yourself.
